Dr. Robert Harrell, who is rated one of the top dentists in Charlotte year after year, uses laser technology for dental treatments that, in the past, would have required the invasive use of needles, drills and blades. Laser treatment allows us to work with superior accuracy and speed. Another benefit of using laser dentistry is the comfort it offers our patients. In most cases, laser dentistry is a pain-free experience without the use of anesthetics.
The laser dentistry services we offer consist of hard tissue and soft tissue dental procedures, and include:
- Tissue sculpting
- Cavity diagnosis
- Etching (in preparation for tooth restoration)
- Tooth bone sculpting
- Teeth whitening
- Removal of old tooth restorations
- Reshaping of deformed teeth
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
There are other important benefits of laser dentistry beyond the significant reduction in pain and anxiety. For example, gum disease treatment through conventional means has an unacceptably high risk of relapse. With laser dentistry, the treatments are more thorough for scaling, root planing and deep cleaning, which reduces the chances of relapse significantly.
For hard tissue treatments, such as correcting misshapen teeth or etching the tooth surface in preparation for a procedure, laser dentistry is a much better alternative to conventional methods.
