Laser Dentistry

The gum tissue plays an important role in the overall appearance of your smile. If you show a lot of gum tissue when you smile, or if your tissue heights are uneven, we can re-contour the heights of your gums helping the teeth appear taller and more symmetrical.

Using the latest technology, we use a laser which removes the excess tissue with minimal discomfort.


 

Case 1

Description of Treatment: This patient didn’t like the unevenness of her gums and the slant of her smile. A combination of laser treatment to make the gums more even and reshaping the teeth create the illusion of a more aesthetic and symmetrical smile.

Patient Testimonial: I was unhappy with my crooked smile and didn’t like the way my gum was uneven. My dentist referred me to Dr. Brennan.

Using a laser and by changing the shape of my teeth in a very conservative way he transformed my smile and I am truly delighted.

I am a very nervous dental patient and was made to feel so comfortable during my appointments. I am so grateful to Dr. Brennan and his nurses for their kindness and courtesy. It was an amazing experience for me and I love my new smile. Thank you so much.

Case 2

Description of Treatment: This patient initially had orthodontic treatment to re-align the position of their teeth. Some front teeth were congenitally missing from birth. When the braces were removed the gum was recontoured using a laser to reduce the amount of gum visible in the smile and allow the natural size of tooth to become visible. The smile was then restored by placing composite veneers on the teeth.

Patient Testimonial: With no small degree of trepidation I recently attended Dr Brennan at the Belgrave Dental Clinic. Following a brief discussion with my regular dentist, I was referred to Dr Brennan in order to avail of his expertise in the field of Laser Dentistry.

It’s immediately obvious that previously invasive dental procedures can now be carried out in an effective, timely and pain-free manner. In my case, the procedure to re-contour my gum line potentially involved a more invasive surgical procedure when conventional gum surgery techniques are used . Instead, I underwent a completely non-invasive treatment with Dr Brennan.

Laser gum treatment isn’t really comparable to other dental procedures. In sharp contrast to more traditional and indeed intrusive treatments, involving dentists’ much maligned repertoire of drills and intimidating looking implements, laser dentistry is practically pain free. Following the initial anaesthetic injection, the only sensation is one of confusion, why isn’t this procedure more widespread?

After care is equally impressive, I returned to work the following day, with only very minor irritation. I would estimate 2-3 days recovery before you can essentially forget the procedure was carried out. Considering the quite aggressive alternative to laser gum surgery and the reasonable monetary costs involved, I would fully recommend the procedure to anyone looking to avail of modern pain free dental treatment.
