Professional Dental Laser Treatment
For advanced periodontal care and gum contouring, Ritchie Dental Group relies on laser dentistry. Dental laser treatment is one of the most important evolutions of oral health in recent years, offering lots of benefits for your care and making it possible for us to perform procedures like gum contouring for improved appearance and advanced gum disease treatment. A soft-tissue dental laser improves care and increases comfort.
Dentistry is always growing to provide better treatment and healthier smiles. Laser dentistry is one way we offer better care.
Solea® Dental Laser
Ritchie Dental Group proudly uses the Solea® dental laser, the most popular all-tissue laser in dentistry. With the Solea® dental laser, our Burnet dentists can perform your gum disease treatment, gum contouring, or dental fillings with a number of added benefits.
The benefits for using dental laser treatments include:
- Faster healing
- Improved precision
- Increased sterilization
- Minimal or no bleeding
- Improved overall patient experience
- Reduced scarring
- Anesthesia-free fillings
It may come as a surprise, but dental lasers can actually be used for dental fillings. The Solea® dental laser allows us to remove the decay in a tooth in lieu of a drill. The dental laser is so precise it can target and vaporize only the decay that’s present while leaving the surrounding healthy tooth structure alone. A regular dental drill simply can't offer the same level of precision. Dental fillings with the Solea® laser can be safely performed on both adults and children. We find that laser fillings give our patients of all ages a superior experience in terms of comfort.
One of the most commonly performed laser dentistry treatments is gum contouring. For patients who have an uneven gum line or too much gum tissue, gum contouring is a cosmetic laser dentistry procedure where one of our dentists removes and reshapes gum tissue. Perhaps you feel that you have a “gummy” smile. If so, gum contouring with a dental laser can even out your smile and improve your self-confidence.
Various factors can cause you to have an uneven gum line and require gum contouring. Genetics, health problems, or even medications can cause you to have too much gum tissue covering your teeth. Meanwhile, gum recession will cause your gums to pull back, exposing more tooth and making your teeth appear unusually long. Gum recession is often caused by gum disease or teeth grinding, and gum contouring with a dental laser can help even out the look of your gums when gum recession has caused damage.
Helping patients with gum health and beauty with a dental laser treatment is just one of the ways that Ritchie Dental Group works to offer our Horseshoe Bay patients with the most recent techniques and technologies for complete general dentistry, family dentistry and cosmetic dentistry care. Improving your smile is our number one job, and we take it very seriously at our Burnet dental office.
