At Cedar Park Premier Dentistry, our dentist Dr. Dale Williams uses a soft-tissue laser to provide our patients with painless, minimally invasive procedures. We use the soft-tissue laser primarily for the following applications:
Using a soft-tissue laser, Dr. Williams can target tissues with extreme precision and without incisions or sutures. The laser energy vaporizes tissue instead of cutting it and does not impact the surrounding tissue. The laser also cauterizes tissue so that bleeding is minimized.
If you have excessive gum tissue around your teeth that makes you unhappy with your smile, then the soft-tissue laser can be used to reshape the contour of your gums, revealing more of your beautiful teeth. By reducing some of the gum tissue, more of your tooth is revealed, thus this technique is sometimes called crown lengthening. The soft-tissue laser can also be used to treat certain cases of gum disease. The laser dramatically reduces the bacteria beneath the gums, which can often treat the infection associated with gum disease.
We are committed to offering the most beneficial and advanced dental technology to our patients, including laser dentistry treatments.
