Laser Dentistry

Our practice uses state-of-the-art lasers to treat dental problems, including but not limited to soft tissue (gum) procedures, laser bleaching of teeth, and curing composite (tooth colored) fillings.  Dr. Oppenheimer is certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry and has more than 20 years of experience using lasers and teaching laser use to other dentists. He was a consultant to one of the Worlds Leading Laser Manufacturers.  Not only is laser dentistry quicker and more comfortable than traditional techniques, but it also results in significantly faster healing time for the patient and stronger, less-sensitive teeth.  To learn more about the possibilities of laser dentistry, please consult our office today.

For laser teeth whitening, you can rely on the experience and expertise of Dr. Roger E. Oppenheimer and his staff at Sherman Cosmetic Dentistry. Among the most popular of the procedures we offer, laser whitening produces immediate results that are visually stunning. This exciting, completely safe technology can be used to treat even the most persistent stains, including those left over the years by coffee, tea, soda, and tobacco. In as little as a single office visit, your teeth can become nine or more shades whiter, results that can last for years with proper care and maintenance. In addition to restoring whiteness to your teeth, laser whitening can also help you regain the confidence that comes along with having a beautiful, gleaming smile.

In the past, periodontal “gum” surgery was usually painful and difficult, requiring multiple office visits and substantial recovery time. However, the evolution of laser technology has made it possible to treat gum disease quickly and effectively. Perhaps most importantly, the procedure is relatively pain free, allowing you to resume normal activity almost immediately. Laser therapy can be used to treat periodontal infections and disease; it can also be used to shape and contour the gums, creating symmetry in the gum line and a more aesthetically pleasing appearance overall.

Among the most feared and misunderstood of all dental procedures, root canals are actually safe and relatively painless. Laser technology simplifies the procedure even further, eliminating the need for dental drills in some cases.
