Laser dentistry in Fairfax, VA is a way to undergo dental surgery, restorative treatments, and even cosmetic dentistry without invasive scalpels, excessive bleeding, or prolonged healing. It is a way to get the dentistry you want and need while lowering your risks for complications.

Additionally, laser dentistry is more precise than traditional surgery, treating specific areas without encroaching on others.

How We Use Laser Dentistry in Fairfax, VA

We use laser dentistry for a variety of purposes, including:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Cosmetic dentistry

In professional teeth whitening, we can apply the whitening gel to your teeth and use our comprehensive laser to heat the gel and aid in the process.

In cosmetic dentistry, your dentist can rid you of a gummy smile, relying on our laser to gently reshape your gum tissue. The result is a beautiful smile that is more gum to tooth symmetrical.

Our laser can target specific or problematic gum tissue in periodontal treatment, ridding it of infection without harming healthy tissue. As a result, laser dentistry treatments promote healing and encourage your gums to better adhere to your teeth.

How Laser Dentistry Works

Instead of an invasive scalpel, a laser can gently remove tissue through energy and precision. This makes laser dentistry the best choice for targeted treatment. And because there is no cutting, recovery is much quicker.

A laser can also help to bleach tooth stains through light energy technology.

Our Commitment to Patient Care

In our dental office, we are always on the lookout for technologies that make your dentistry easier. Of course, we always use a gentle hand when treating your teeth and gums, but when a specific technology complements that approach, we are happy to bring it to our dental office.
