Our cosmetic dentist, Kalil Abide, D.D.S., incorporates laser dentistry at his Jackson, MS, practice to provide patients with virtually pain-free care. With lasers, he can perform a number of soft and hard tissue procedures, including cosmetic treatments such as crown lengthening and gum contouring. Our advanced tools are also useful in extractions and other restorative treatments. The laser energy yields highly precise results with minimal discomfort and shortened recovery times.

Our Advanced Dental Lasers
At Harmony Dental Care, we proudly feature the Waterlase® system. This powerful tool combines the force of water with high-power laser energy. The device can make small incisions and eliminate unwanted tissue without the vibrations and unpleasant noise associated with drills. The stream of water also cools and soothes the treatment area. With the Waterlase® system, most procedures are able to be performed without anesthesia. Therefore, your care can be quicker and more pleasant than you ever thought possible, even if you normally suffer from dental anxiety. In addition, during gum procedures, the laser will seal your soft tissue, so there will be minimal bleeding and inflammation. Along with the Waterlase® device, Dr. Abide also uses state-of-the-art diode lasers for select treatments. These devices offer similar benefits to Waterlase®.

Lasers In Cosmetic Dentistry
Crown lengthening and gum contouring are two of the most common treatments in laser dentistry. If your smile looks disproportionately small, or your gum line is uneven, you may benefit from one of these treatments. During crown lengthening, Dr. Abide can remove small amounts of gum and bone tissue to reveal more of your healthy teeth. Similarly, in gum contouring, he will eliminate a tiny layer of tissue to give you a straighter, more even gum line that frames your smile.
