What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is a type of new technology used in dentistry. The laser produces energy in the form of light and acts as a gentle, precise cutting device for gum tissue. Our diode laser is a highly effective tool that enables us to provide our patients with the maximum level of care.

We believe that in order to provide excellent dental care, it’s vital to be equipped with a variety of instruments. “If you only have two or three tools in your toolbox, you may be limited as to what you can do. But if you have several tools, you can cover a range of treatments.”Dr. Todd McMaster.

When Do We Use Dental Lasers?

At McMaster Dental, we have seen firsthand how a small amount of gum contouring can make a huge difference in the appearance of a patient’s smile. This is why we choose to offer advanced and effective laser dentistry for our Escondido patients.

Use of the laser is conservative, quick, and requires minimal to no recovery time. With gum contouring, if your gums are “hiding” your teeth, a small amount of contouring may be the key to a fuller, healthier smile.

We mainly use our laser when we are trying to achieve gingival symmetry, remove diseased or inflamed tissue, provide gum contouring, and in preparation for porcelain veneers and crowns (if needed).
