Laser Dentistry in Fairfield and Bayside VIC
Are your gum tissues uneven? Do you have a large amount of gum tissue visible when you smile? Gingival recontouring is a simple way to correct concerns like these and others. Using gentle laser therapy the gumlines can be adjusted without the use of surgical techniques.
We typically recommend laser dentistry when our patients experience:
- "Gummy" Smiles
- An overgrowth of gum tissue
- Teeth that appear shorter than normal
- Uneven gumlines
- Unhealthy gym margins around restorations
Soft tissue laser technology allows us to offer our patients an alternative cosmetic service that is minimally invasive, comfortable and creates dramatic effects. With soft tissue lasers, the gum tissues can be treated for disease as well as adjusted to be more aesthetically pleasing.
Once completed, the procedure leaves teeth looking fuller, more even, and minimises bulky gum tissues. The entire process takes only a few minutes to complete from start to finish.
Excessive Gum Tissue
One of the greatest benefits of laser gingivectomies is the ability to avoid discomfort and lengthy recovery times. Lasers close the area being treated, preventing the need for sutures or wound maintenance. Instead, Sparkle Dental patients go home feeling as if hardly anything happened at all!
Laser gingivectomy therapy can be done without local anesthesia, but of course we always offer it on our patients. For more information about laser gingivectomy, speak to our friendly dental team at Sparkle Dental Care.
Ulcer and Cold Sore Remedies
If you have a bothersome cold sore or ulcer popping up, you don’t want to wait days or it to go away. Cold sores can interfere with your appearance and even your social life. Instead, Sparkle Dental Care can help you eliminate the cold sore relatively quickly with the use of a soft tissue laser.
Applying a laser to the irritated lesion will reduce recovery time significantly. Catching your sore as early as possible will prevent it from interfering with your smile. If you feel a canker sore popping up, call us to schedule a quick appointment to prevent the full sore from turning into one that lasts for days.
