If there is one thing that all of us can agree upon, it’s that making dentistry easier, faster, and less uncomfortable is a welcome improvement. Our Albany cosmetic dentist, Dr. Geoffrey Edmunds, utilizes laser dentistry to afford you the very best and latest in dental technology and to make your experience at our office as pleasant as possible.
Laser dentistry cannot prevent tooth decay, but it can make treating it more streamlined. Though the use of lasers, our Albany cosmetic dentist can prepare your tooth for a filling and then harden the filling material as well. Another way that lasers can be employed to your benefit is regarding your gums. Typically, when gums need to be reshaped to address gum disease, cutting is involved. But with the use of laser dentistry, that is unnecessary. No cutting means a significant reduction of discomfort, quicker recovery, and far less chance of having a complication or an infection as a result.
When it comes to teeth whitening, lasers take an already effective process and make it faster. Everyone wants to see impressive results when it comes to teeth whitening. Every shade that your teeth go from stained to brighter and more natural is a boost to your confidence in your self appearance. Well, lasers can activate the bleaching solution and cause it to work faster than usual. No one ever complains about their teeth getting whiter too quickly. Our Albany cosmetic dentist is pleased to offer you a method that is safe and efficient for making this happen.
For any treatment where laser dentistry can successfully be applied, the advantages of using it include both the physical and the psychological. Physically speaking, you will experience less pain in your dental procedures thanks to the use of lasers. In addition, bleeding and swelling can be kept to a minimum. When treating tooth decay and filling cavities, you may be able to retain more of your natural and healthy tooth thanks to laser dentistry. Psychologically, less drilling and less cutting can mean less stress and fear regarding dental procedures. Our Albany cosmetic dentist wants to work to make your teeth and gums healthier and also to keep you free from anxiety when undergoing dental or periodontal work. With laser dentistry, doing so is much easier.
