Dental technology has come a long way in the last few decades. We now have more options available to reduce pain and enhance the effectiveness of our procedures. Lasers are a prime example of how dentistry is evolving to improve results and patient comfort. At the office of Drs. Chin and Pharar, we use the latest equipment available to offer superior care with maximum comfort.

Laser Use in Oral Care

The word LASER is actually an acronym that stands for "light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation." Essentially, we can calibrate light, adjust its potency, and focus it on a specific area for a desired effect. In dentistry, lasers have several applications - from removing bacteria and infection to retracting gum tissue. This technology has proven to be more effective, precise, and less painful than traditional options.

Treatable Conditions 

Laser dentistry in Las Vegas has truly revolutionized how we're able to treat a variety of conditions. By harnessing localized light energy, we can offer non-invasive, often painless care. we often turn to this technology when a patient presents us with:

  • Damaged gums or other soft tissues
  • Yellowed teeth
  • Poorly contoured gum line

Gummy Smile

A perfect smile shows the right amount teeth and just a little bit of gum. However, for some of us have a condition called excessive gingival display (EGD). Also known as "gummy smile" this occurs with a large amount of gum is visible. Lasers can reduce the amount of gum covering your teeth to give you a better aesthetic balance.

The Role of Lasers in Dentistry

Laser use has continued to evolve since its early usage dating back to 1994. We often use lasers to treat patients with:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
