At O2 Dental Group, we use laser dentistry procedures at our Wilmington, NC dentist office to give our patients a more comfortable dental experience. Dr. Lydia and Dr. O use laser dentistry to deliver precise treatments in a shorter time.
Benefits of laser dentistry treatment can include:
- Anesthesia is not required for many laser dentistry treatments.
- Recovery time post-treatment is generally much quicker than with traditional dental treatment.
- Laser dentistry treatments are often more comfortable for patients.
- The risk of bacterial infection is lowered due to the precision of laser dentistry treatments.
This laser dentistry procedure has many different names, including laser gum reshaping, gum surgery, gum shaping, and dental crown lengthening.
Even if you have straight, healthy, symmetrical teeth, your gum line may be uneven or fall too far below the lips. If you’re suffering from a “gummy smile”, laser dentistry could be the right solution to better balance your gum tissue and your teeth.
Cold Sore Removal
For patients suffering from cold sores, Dr. Lydia and Dr. O often recommend laser dentistry treatment. Laser treatment for cold sores works by heating the lesion in order to kill the virus and stimulate healing. This simple treatment typically lasts about 15 minutes, and most patients feel better immediately following their appointment.
