What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is a cutting-edge advancement that uses light energy to target specific areas like enamel, decay, or gum tissue. These dental structures absorb the energy, delivered at different wavelengths, without the heat or vibration associated with traditional drills. 

Laser procedures can target hard tissues like teeth and soft tissues like gums, often eliminating the need for local anesthesia and enhancing patient comfort. Bellevue Dentists is at the forefront of incorporating laser dentistry into your dental care, ensuring a precise and comfortable experience tailored for you.
