At Signature Smiles Family Dentistry, we are committed to serving our community with the highest level of care possible. Part of doing that is using state-of-the-art technology that makes treatment more comfortable and more effective for our patients. We offer non-surgical gum disease treatment using dental lasers as well as cosmetic laser dentistry.
What Is Laser Dental Treatment Used For?
Laser dental treatment is performed for a variety of different reasons. It can be used to remove tooth decay and plaque, get rid of canker sores and cold sores, take a biopsy, and even to whiten teeth.
At Signature Smiles Family Dentistry, one of the main ways we use our dental laser is for gum disease treatment. As an alternative to traditional gum surgery, we use a dental laser to get rid of inflamed gum tissue. Another procedure we provide is laser gum contouring, which is a way to reshape “gummy” smiles.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Dental Surgery?
There are a number of advantages to laser dental surgery. One of the main benefits for patients is that there is much less need to use a drill and therefore less of a need for anesthesia — all of which means much less discomfort for you. We’ve also seen that many patients aren’t as anxious or nervous about their treatment when they know non-invasive laser dentistry will be used, allowing them to focus on taking care of their dental health.
Dental lasers are a precise tool that allow us to perform procedures with greater accuracy. Any post-procedure bleeding and swelling is also limited. All of this and the fact that laser dentistry doesn’t affect the teeth or gums surrounding the treatment area mean you’ll recover faster. You’ll be back to your routine in no time!
Cost of Laser Dentistry
The cost of laser dentistry really depends on your specific needs. Every patient’s case is unique, and we’ll need to perform a dental exam in-person to get a good idea of treatment costs. If you are concerned about laser dental treatment working for your budget, we invite you to take a look at our dental savers plan, which offers members a 25% discount on any of our services.
