Scalpels serve their purpose, but they’re not the most patient-friendly tool in dentistry. Laser dentistry can provide a better way. With laser technology, Dr. Aldo Espinosa and our team here at Bonita Del Rey Dental Care can offer you minimally invasive gum treatment. Dr. Espinosa has always been at the forefront of dental technology to ensure your care is as comfortable and effective as possible. In the skills hands of Dr. Espinosa, laser dentistry will enable you to experience reduced bleeding, pain, swelling, and sensitivity, faster procedures, and shorter healing times after gum treatment. Let’s look at some laser-based dental procedures that we provide right here in our Chula Vista, CA dental office.
If you have a “gummy smile,” where more of your gums show than you’d like, it may not impact your dental health, but it can make you self-conscious and reluctant to smile. Our team understands you and is ready to help! Through laser dentistry, we can restore the balance between your teeth and gums, giving you renewed confidence and a brighter, whiter smile. We use a highly accurate Picasso laser to remove excess soft tissue from around your teeth, taking special care to make your tooth-to-gum ratio uniform throughout your mouth. During this process, called crown lengthening or soft tissue recontouring, we sculpt the tissue around your teeth so that the shape of the gums looks completely natural. The end result is less visible gum tissue and more noticeable teeth that you’ll be eager to show off! Crown lengthening can give you the balanced smile you’ve always wanted.
Not all laser gum treatments involve removing tissue from your mouth. The laser is extremely effective in eliminating periodontal disease and is a less-invasive alternative to manually scraping your gums. We use the laser on diseased parts of your gums to remove the bacteria that cause infection, often enabling us to save gum tissue that might otherwise eventually need to be removed. We’re dedicated to helping you avoid greater dental health issues in the future through laser dentistry and a variety of services we offer in one convenient Chula Vista, CA dentist office!
