The Amazing Benefits Of Laser Treatment

Our Laser Dentistry Services

Laser Gum Surgery

Laser Gum Surgery treats periodontal disease, a serious gum infection that damages gums and can destroy the jawbone.

Laser gum disease treatment evaporates diseased tissue, bacteria, and plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth.


As a gentle sculptor removes excess clay to reveal the beauty within, a Laser Gingivectomy trims the overgrowth of gum tissue from around teeth, restoring the teeth to their rightful prominence, beauty, and health.


Peri-Implantitis is a damaging inflammatory process impacting the soft and hard tissues surrounding dental implants.
Much like with laser gum disease treatment, the dental laser eradicates damaged tissue and bacteria from around the dental implant post.

Crown Lengthening

Laser crown lengthening, generally for a “gummy” smile, improves the symmetry of the smile by restoring a more balanced tooth-to-gum ratio.


A laser frenectomy reduces or removes the frenulum, the tissue that restricts the movement of the tongue or lips. During the procedure, Dr. Pavlicic uses the laser to cut or modify a frenum (also called frenulum) — a band of connective tissue that joins two areas into a tongue-tie or a lip-tie.

Veneer & Crown Removal

Laser-assisted removal of broken or old veneers and dental crowns preserves the natural structure of the teeth.
