Laser Treatment

Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry

We use the power of technology to bring another level of comfort & efficiency to our patients with the use of dental lasers. Our laser system allows us to remove or reshape the soft tissues of your mouth (such as your gums) during your dental treatment. Many patients report less pain or discomfort during laser procedures compared to traditional tools, with some patients needing much less or no anesthesia at all. Healing times are also greatly reduced with lasers. Whether the goal of your treatment is aesthetic or health-related, laser dentistry helps us bring you a comfortable & attractive result.

Laser Treatment for Canker Sores

A canker sore is a small sore inside the mouth that is often irritating or slightly painful. Called aphthous ulcers in medical terms, these sores can be treated in much the same way as cold sores. At our practice, we can use a laser to numb the nerve ending, eliminating pain & stimulating healing. After treatment, the sore usually disappears within 24 hours.

Laser Treatment for Gummy Smiles

Small-looking teeth or a “gummy” smile happens when too much of the gum shows or covers the tooth. Luckily, there is a very quick & simple solution to this. A special soft-tissue dental laser can make tiny adjustments to gums where it is not wanted by gently vaporizing the tissue, revealing more tooth. At Diablo Hills Dental Excellence we can perform this treatment to create an ideal balance between gums & teeth, creating a dramatic difference in your smile in very little time. The other benefits of soft-tissue laser dentistry are minimal or no pain, no bleeding & enhanced healing. Ask us for a free consultation. We stay on the leading edge of technology to bring you effective cosmetic results.
