Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry at Ledner & Zaiff Dental Designs uses innovative Waterlase MD laser technology to perform a variety of dental procedures with laser energy, air, and water spray. 

Lasers can clean your teeth, reduce gum disease, and even perform minor surgical procedures without the cutting or drilling often associated with dental anxiety.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Some of the many benefits associated with laser dentistry and the advantages of the Waterlase MD laser include:

  • Minimally invasive 
  • Gentler procedures
  • No shots or drills
  • Enhanced comfort
  • Less dental anxiety
  • Virtually painless
  • Convenience
  • Cavity and gum disease treatment
  • Improved safety, accuracy, and precision
  • Lower risk of complications 
  • Reduced risk of cross-contamination 

Laser dentistry uses patented technology to avoid heat and offer a virtually pain-free dental experience for your entire family. Your provider can use the Waterlase MD laser on adult and pediatric patients. Many laser dentistry procedures don’t even require an anesthetic.

Waterlase lasers operate with disposable, single-use tips, so you don’t have to worry about them being in another patient’s mouth.

What should I expect during laser dentistry visits?

The team greets you when you arrive at Ledner & Zaiff Dental Designs for a dental appointment. Your provider discusses your current needs with you and might use laser dentistry during the following procedures:

Restorative dentistry

With Waterlase technology, your dentist can restore teeth that are damaged or decaying. Lasers help prep your teeth for root canals, veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants, or other restorative treatments.

Crown and veneer removal

Laser dentistry allows your dentist to safely remove crowns, veneers, or other restorations in less time without any discomfort.

Soft tissue refining

If you have a gummy smile, Waterlase MD laser dentistry can sculpt and refine soft tissues near your gum line to perfect your smile. 

Dental surgery

Rather than relying on a scalpel or drill, your dentist can use a laser for superb precision and accuracy and a comfortable experience during dental surgery. 

Teeth whitening

Laser dentistry enhances teeth whitening to give you the gorgeous bright smile of your dreams.

Gum disease treatment

Waterlase lasers can remove diseased soft tissue, remove hard-to-reach tartar and plaque, and reduce the risk of advanced gum disease.
