How Does Dentistry with Lasers Work?

A Typical Laser Dentistry Timeline

Our Knoxville office uses this and other advanced technology to provide you with outstanding treatment.

Day of Procedure

Our Knoxville office uses this and other advanced technology to provide you with outstanding treatment.
Dr. Bailey starts each appointment with a one-on-one consultation, at which time she will discuss your cosmetic goals and examine your teeth and gums. Then, she will customize a precise treatment plan to suit your needs. 
Dr. Bailey may first administer anesthetic, depending on the case and your comfort level.
The laser system emits a beam of light instead of relying on rotary hardware to treat your tooth or other tissues.
The light energy sterilizes gum tissue, breaks up and removes decayed material, removes lesions, and can even act as a heating source for teeth whitening.
Once the treatment is complete, you can leave our Knoxville office with an enhanced smile.
