Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry involves using focused light energy to perform dental procedures with improved precision and minimal discomfort.

Lasers can:

  • Remove tissue
  • Alleviate decay
  • Assist in tooth preparation for restorations like dental crowns
  • Eliminate plaque and tartar build up 

Laser dentistry revolutionizes dental care by reducing the need for traditional tools and techniques, often leading to less pain, faster healing, and enhanced treatment outcomes.

What are some common applications of laser dentistry?

In addition to using laser dentistry for cleanings and crown application, Bluebonnet Dental Advanced Cosmetic and Family Dentistry uses the technique for:

Cavity treatment 

Hard tissue lasers can remove decayed portions of teeth, and they're often used for preparing teeth for fillings or sealants.

Gum disease treatment

Soft tissue lasers can remove infected gum tissue and aid in periodontal procedures to promote healthier gums.

Gum reshaping

Lasers can contour and reshape gum tissue, enhancing the appearance of a "gummy" smile.

Teeth whitening 

Laser-assisted teeth whitening accelerates the bleaching process, resulting in faster and more effective treatments.


Lasers can be used to perform oral tissue biopsies, aiding in the diagnosis of potential oral cancer or other pathological conditions.

How do you apply laser dentistry to dental cleanings?

Laser technology has transformed dental cleanings. It allows for efficient removal of tartar and plaque without the need for traditional scraping tools. Laser dental cleanings are often gentler, less invasive, and can result in reduced bleeding and discomfort.

How does laser dentistry assist with dental crown procedures?

Lasers can assist in tooth preparation, eliminating the need for traditional drills in some cases. 

Laser precision helps preserve more of the natural tooth structure, promoting better crown fit and a more comfortable experience.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry offers several benefits, including:

  • Reduced discomfort
  • Minimized bleeding
  • Faster healing

Laser dentistry also preserves healthy tissue by targeting specific areas precisely. 

People with dental anxiety also appreciate laser dentistry. The procedures produce less noise and vibration as compared to traditional work with dental drills.
