Diode Laser Therapy
Dr. Stone’s advanced training in the use of diode lasers allows our patients to benefit from the kindest and most gentle therapeutic approaches to the treatment of gum disease, cold sores and apthous ulcers.
Laser’s can eliminate bacteria and reduce the risk of blood loss and infection. Treatments performed with the laser are much less painful than traditional treatments so most patients need little or no anesthesia. With laser treatment, the healing time for patients also decreases dramatically.
In addition, Dr. Stone uses this excellent technology to perfect a smile design when contouring is needed to transform a “gummy smile” into a beautifully balanced “dream smile.” Like a brush in the hands of a skilled artist, Dr. Stone uses his laser to gently design a picture-perfect frame for your new smile. Gum tissue can make your teeth look short by covering more of your teeth than is necessary to protect it. Laser gum tissue contouring can correct this painlessly and quickly. Laser contouring can also fill gaps in your gum line, which cause your teeth to look too long.
