Catch And Eliminate Tooth Decay With Laser Dentistry

A lot of people that have had a tooth filling done in the past do not like the sound, let alone the feeling, of getting tooth decay removed using traditional methods. Even if your tooth is completely numb, you know what’s being done and can’t help but think of it just from the sound alone.

But when you visit Hellertown Dental Group with a cavity, you’ll benefit from having any decayed tooth material removed using one of our state-of-the-art dental lasers. During this process, we will also prepare and shape your tooth to ensure your filling will bond properly to your tooth. This dental laser is much quieter and more comfortable than the tools used by many other dentists.

We also use a special DiagnoDENT machine that uses lasers to detect signs of cavities that would normally go overlooked. This way, we can catch signs of decay while the problem is still very small. Whether you or your child have the beginnings of a small cavity, this technology allows us to:

  • Find the problem early before it actually penetrates your tooth surface
  • Treat it more easily
  • Preserve more of your natural tooth surface

When we do restore the natural shape of your tooth with a tooth filling, we will also color-match your filling to the rest of your smile using computer-assisted shade matching technology. A lot of dentists offer tooth-colored fillings instead of the metal options of the past, but not very many can ensure your tooth will be repaired in a way that will blend in with the rest of your smile so well!

If we suspect any discomfort is possible during your treatment, we will use an anesthetic to numb your mouth just in case.

For patients that get nervous at the dentist, our caring team will do everything we can to help relieve your dental anxiety, including answering any questions you have and listening intently to your concerns. We will always greet you with warm smiles and do our very best to put you at ease. We can also provide various comfort options, including:

  • Starbucks brand coffee
  • Soft pillows
  • Warm blankets
  • Games for the kids
  • TV and music options to entertain and distract you while we work

If there’s anything we can do to make your appointment more pleasant, just let us know. We can even provide extended appointments by request so you won’t feel rushed. We’ll work at your pace and give you all the time you need so you can feel more comfortable. We can’t wait to meet you and improve your smile!
