Laser Fillings

Laser Dentistry

Laser can be used for some small fillings. This procedure involves the use of laser technology to target and remove decay before a tooth is filled. When laser is used in this way, it can often mean that needles and drilling are not required, though a drill may still be needed to remove an existing filling if the tooth is being re-filled.

A laser filling procedure takes slightly longer than a conventional filling procedure. However, unlike conventional fillings, laser fillings can be carried out in all parts of the mouth in one visit if a local anaesthetic is not required, which can save time in the long run.

Laser Gum Surgery

Laser Dentistry

Laser provides an alternative to using a scalpel and can now be used to carry out, more quickly and virtually pain-free, most soft-tissue procedures (gum lifts/contouring) that would normally be performed with a scalpel.

With laser, depending on the procedure, there is often no need for stitches, so healing can happen up to five to six times faster. The shorter healing time allows you to undergo treatments within a week, instead of the typical six- to eight-week healing time for conventional gum surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

The risks involved with laser dentistry are related to the heat produced by the frequency of the laser beam, the amount of coolant used when the laser is applied to the surface of the tooth, and how long the clinician applies the laser to any one tooth surface.

It’s important to have a trained clinician perform your laser dentistry procedure. At Smile Solutions, our clinicians are well aware of the risks associated with laser treatment and are trained and experienced in reducing these risks.

At Smile Solutions, your laser dentistry procedures can be performed by our general dentists or registered specialist periodontists (gum specialists), depending on the procedure.
