What do you mean when you say laser dentistry?

At Great Lakes Dentistry, our dental team believes that your smile deserves the best care we can possibly provide. As part of this commitment, we are dedicated to offering your family the latest advances in dental technology, including laser dentistry. Laser dentistry is the utilization of high-powered dental lasers to aid in and improve multiple dental treatments. Dental lasers can be used to:

  • Thoroughly clean and sanitize your teeth
  • Reduce bacterial infection in your mouth
  • Remove diseased gum and soft tissues to treat gum disease
  • Reshape and seal your gum line
  • Assist in oral surgery

There are many advantages to laser dentistry, including minimized pain and discomfort, reduced bleeding, and a faster recovery period. Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our qualified dentist, has the training and expertise necessary to utilize laser therapy in Royal Oak, Michigan, to the benefit of you and your family. We work with gentle skill and precision to help produce results you will love. We are truly devoted to ensuring your smile is well taken care of. We would love to share more with you about how the use of dental lasers can enhance your dental experience. We invite you to contact our dental office today for more information!

How do dental lasers work?

Lasers work by emitting a very specific wavelength of light that travels in one direction. A flashlight delivers light in many directions so the beams of light go everywhere.

Dr. V and staff do such a great job!! Dr. V has an excellent "bedside manner". I am one who stresses when major things have to happen to my mouth and he does what he can to eleviate my unease and even takes breaks to help calm. Thank you, Dr. V, for being a doctor who looks out for others first!read more

After going to the same dentist for 30+ years he retired. A friend recommended Dr. V, that it would be worth the drive. I live in Canton so it is 70 miles round trip. The friend was correct in recommending Great Lakes Dentistry. His office staff is competent and friendly which usually tells you their boss is also. Dr. V was very courteous and put me at ease. I am so happy I have my dentistry needs met now that my family will be going over there also. Thank you Dr. V and your staff for a pleasant dentist visit. Great Lakes Dentistry is certainly worth the drive.read more
