Laser Dentistry

Do scalpels, sutures, and traditional drills increase your dental anxiety?

Lasers used in dentistry are noninvasive, eliminating much of the fear surrounding a visit to the dentist.

At Gables Perfect Smile in Coral Gables, FL, we enhance patient treatments through advanced technologies, such as laser dentistry.

What Is Laser Dentistry? 


Laser dentistry uses specialized lasers to treat a variety of dental concerns, including tooth decay, gum disease, gummy smiles, and more. The concentrated light energy emitted by lasers can remove and reshape hard and soft tissues with more precision and less discomfort than traditional methods. 

The Waterlase MD Laser Our Tool of Choice at Gables Perfect Smile

At Gables Perfect Smile, our dentist uses the Waterlase® MD laser, which combines water spray with YSGG laser energy to handle a range of dental treatments.
This video illustrating gum depigmentation offers an example of the Waterlase MD laser's capabilities. With this treatment, the Waterlase MD laser is used to safely remove the outer pigmented layer of the gums to reveal the pinker gum tissue underneath. The precise nature of laser dentistry allows us to remove just the right amount of tissue to deliver results without harming your teeth or other dental structures. 

Procedures Lasers Can Enhance

Our dentist, Dr. Gloria Ospina, uses laser dentistry techniques for many standard procedures at our Coral Gables office. Some of the the most common procedures where we employ laser dentistry include:

Tooth Decay Removal

The Waterlase MD laser can replace the traditional dental drill for cavity removal and tooth decay treatment. Lasers also help improve the tooth preparation process for root canal therapy, ensuring our patients a more comfortable and efficient experience.

Veneer Preparation

Veneers require a prepared enamel surface for a natural appearance and comfortable feel. With laser precision, we can carefully buff your tooth's surface to prepare it for veneer placement, ensuring optimal results you can smile about.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

Patients with an uneven gum line or a "gummy smile" can benefit from laser-assisted cosmetic gum surgery. Dr. Ospina uses the laser to precisely remove excess gum tissue and contour the gum line to create a more proportional and balanced smile.
