What is Laser Dentistry?
- Posted on: Jul 28 2010
If you ask someone in their forties, fifties, sixties, or seventies about what a trip to the dentist was like decades ago, you will hear horror stories of pain, drilling, and being miserable for days after a visit to the dentist. Those days are long gone. With so many advances in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, a trip to the dentist is not only tolerable, but is actually enjoyable in some cases. Philadelphia cosmetic dentist, Dr. Lindsey Marshall and her dental team make sure each and every patient feels comfortable when they work through our doors. We know just what our patients need and work very hard to provide them the brilliant, healthy smile they deserve. Laser dentistry helps us achieve the goal of providing each patient an exceptional dental experience. Laser dentistry can be used for a variety of dental procedures including:
- Removal of cavities/tooth-colored fillings
- Teeth whitening
- Reshaping of the gums
- Hardening of bonding materials
- Periodontics (gum care)
Dental lasers emit light delivering quick impulses of heat to the area being treated. Lasers can also eliminate the need for the infamous dental drill. During a thorough consultation with Dr. Marshall, you will learn all about how lasers can be used to make your dental work more comfortable. There is absolutely no need to put off dental work any longer. If you live in Philadelphia, you must come find out more about laser dentistry. Please contact Lindsey Marshall, DMD today to schedule an appointment. We serve Ardmore, Philadelphia, and the Main Line areas of Pennsylvania.
