What Are the Benefits of Laser Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
Laser cosmetic dentistry offers patients new and exciting treatment options with fewer side effects and faster recovery time. This state-of-the-art technology makes it possible for our dentist in Spokane, Washington, to provide you with the highest quality, most effective cosmetic dental procedures possible. With laser cosmetic dentistry, it only takes a few minutes to restore your smile and give you back the self-confidence you need to succeed.
The procedures used in laser cosmetic dentistry are non-invasive. The lasers work by emitting light waves that easily penetrate tissues without requiring an incision. Because they are non-invasive, there are no open wounds, and your risk of infection is dramatically reduced. Lasers can be used to treat gum disease and gingivitis. They can also be used to rejuvenate gum tissues making them stronger and more resilient to infection.
Fewer Side Effects
Laser procedures are also known to have fewer side effects. There is very little pain, inflammation, or discomfort associated with dental treatments involving a laser. Many laser procedures can be completed in as little as 10 to 15 minutes which means you have more time to enjoy your day. When lasers are used to treat cold sores or other wounds within the mouth, there is also much less risk of scar tissue.
Quicker Recovery Time
Traditional cosmetic dental procedures may mean a three- or four-day recovery period. With laser cosmetic dentistry, the recovery time is much shorter. In many cases, you can resume your day-to-day activities within just a few hours. Because there are no incisions or wounds to monitor, you don’t have to worry about keeping the area covered or protected.
