  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

What is Laser Dentistry?

You have probably heard of laser dentistry, but might still have questions about what it is or how it can benefit you. The truth is that laser dentistry is a versatile, relatively painless procedure that we use in many conditions related to your soft tissue and teeth.

The primary use we have in our Lafayette dental office is for soft tissue surgeries and treatments. That means everything from prepping for a crown to the treatment of periodontal disease. We can also use laser dentistry for gingival sculpting and the removal of excessive gum tissue. Some of the benefits that come with laser dentistry over traditional treatment are faster healing times and less pain. 

Laser dentistry treatments can also relieve soft tissue lesions such as painful canker sores, allowing them to heal much more quickly. Another helpful use is to treat overly sensitive teeth. With one laser treatment on your sensitive teeth, you might receive up to a year of relief. This allows you to proceed with treatments such as professional teeth whitening that otherwise may be too painful. 

Surgeries are a breeze with laser dentistry. If you need a frenectomy that releases excessive muscles making it difficult to speak, or if you need crown lengthening, you will likely experience less pain, faster healing, and better results with the use of our soft tissue laser. If you have questions about how laser dentistry can benefit you, call our dental office for more details. 

Our dentists are highly skilled and have years of experience with laser dentistry. At Drs. Smith and Domingue’s dental office, we strive to stay current with the latest technologies and procedures.
