Laser Dentistry
The KaVo laser is effective for both hard and soft tissue procedures, allowing us to offer:

  • Soft Tissue Laser TreatmentsGum reshaping and contouring, often necessary for certain cosmetic procedures
  • Periodontal (gum) therapy
  • Removal of small growths on the gums or lips (treatment for cold sores)
  • Removal of excess gum tissue which can cause “gummy smiles”
  • Hard Tissue Laser TreatmentsRemoval of decay (cavity) within a tooth
  • Preparation for fillings
  • Desensitization for patients who suffer from cold sensitivity

Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding and is so gentle that certain procedures do not require anesthesia or stitches. The KaVo Laser also significantly reduces the risk of infection as the high-energy beam sterilizes the area our doctors are working on. Perhaps one of the most desirable benefits of Dental Clinic at Richmond Centre is the fact that patients are able to heal faster, due to the fact that tissues can easily regenerate.
