• What's New in Dental Technology

    on Jan 2nd, 2017

The field of dental technology is always changing. There is always some new discovery destined to change the way we treat your teeth. The new year is here, so that means new tools and technology. What can we expect to see in 2017, regarding dental technology?

The answer, first begins, with lasers designed to zap away our canker and cold sores. This may sound too good to be true, but at Lighthouse Family Dentistry, we have laser treatments for your both cold sores and canker sores. A laser will zap away the bacteria and discomfort associated with a cold sore or canker sore, and it is completely painless. You will not even an anesthetic for this procedure. The advancements in dental technology are truly incredible.

The next innovation is laser treatments for gum disease, which is also known as periodontal laser therapy. Lasers have revolutionized several fields of medicine, and the dental industry is no exception. At Lighthouse Family Dentistry, we will use a dental laser to access and remove any inflamed gum tissue around the root of your tooth. This tissue will be removed, and we will begin to scrape off any plaque around the gum line and root of your teeth. Periodontal laser therapy does absolute wonders for your overall oral health.

Don’t let stained teeth stop you from smiling. Thanks to technology, we are able to easily transform your smile. We have two options: Lumineers and teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a quick and painless way to brighten your teeth. However, sometimes, the typical teeth whitening procedure does not produce the results you are looking for. Lumineers are an excellent choice. Lumineers are a permanent way to completely transform your smile. They conceal tooth stains and overall produce a much brighter and whiter appearance. 
We strive to always stay up to date with all the advancing technology in the dental industry. We, at Lighthouse Family Dentistry, would be happy to answer any question you may have laser treatments for cold sores, canker sores, and gum disease, along with teeth whitening options. We can decide which dental technology is right for you, your lifestyle, and your smile. To schedule an appointment, call us at (831) 373-0478.
