The Advantages of Drill-Free Laser Dentistry

At the Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Patrick Broome utilizes the revolutionary Waterlase laser dentistry system to provide patients with a more comfortable and effective dental treatment.

What is Laser Dentistry?

Dental lasers contribute significantly to the field of cosmetic dentistry, according to research published in the National Library of Medicine. Using the advanced BIOLASE Waterlase iPlus system, Dr. Broome can perform a wide variety of dental procedures using laser dentistry instead of a dental drill. Laser dentistry uses specific and focused laser energy to treat both hard and soft tissue. Unlike a dental drill, laser dentistry uses light energy, water, and air to precisely remove damaged tissue and creates no collateral damage to surrounding gum tissue or tooth structure. Many patients who undergo laser dentistry procedures do not require local anesthetic because there is a minimal sensation to the treated area when drills are not involved. After an initial consultation, Dr. Broome determines if laser dentistry is appropriate for each patient’s procedure.

How is Laser Dentistry Used?

Laser dentistry has some limitations when it comes to certain dental procedures and cannot be used to remove silver fillings or bridges and crowns containing any metal. However, laser dentistry can be used for a wide variety of soft-tissue and hard-tissue procedures. For patients with cavities, Dr. Broome can use laser dentistry to remove the cavity and prepare the tooth for fillings. Laser dentistry can also be used to prepare the teeth for porcelain veneers or remove veneers. Using minimally invasive laser dentistry, Dr. Broome is able to remove veeners without cutting them! Tooth reshaping and bone sculpting are other hard-tissue procedures that can be performed with laser dentistry in a way that is fast and minimally invasive. For soft-tissue procedures performed on the gums, laser dentistry allows Dr. Broome to sculpt, contour, and shape the gums without causing any pain or bleeding for the patient. Laser dentistry also removes bacteria in both the teeth and gums to promote a healthier smile.
