Soft Tissue Laser Therapy
This is where the dentist gently shapes the excess tissue that surrounds the front of your tooth so that the tooth proportions are even and the smile line is aesthetically pleasing.
This procedure requires your dentist to cut a thin line around your tooth, providing a gentle way for the final restoration to fit well and look good. The process is quicker, less painful and bloodless, compared to the traditional retraction cord system.
Dentists perform this procedure to remove unwanted attachments that can cause speech impediments. It is performed in minutes and is the ultimate cure for patients who are “tongue-tied.”
Lasers are often used to prevent cold sores before they have a chance to break out. when you feel a sore developing, talk to your dentist and prevent the problem before it occurs.
