Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry


Dr. Finch uses the latest technologies for Laser Dentistry for a variety of applications including placing and replacing basic fillings, in cosmetic procedures such as defining gums, in periodontal and endodontic therapies, and even when placing dental implants.

Laser Dentistry reduces, and in some cases even replaces the need for a dental drill.  This advancement offers patients multiple benefits including the ability to forgo anesthetic.  That means “No Needles” and minimal inflammation and discomfort, which can often accelerate the healing process. This means that you’ll see the final results you’re looking for even faster.

Glastonbury Laser Dentistry for Those with a Dental Phobia

If you suffer from Dental Anxiety or avoid visiting the dentist for fear of discomfort, you are not alone. This is a common condition that you do not have to live with. Laser Dentistry has revolutionized Dental Care to the point where procedures can be performed in a way that is so comfortable that you will barely notice you are having dental work done. We treat patients throughout the Glastonbury CT area that no longer have concerns regarding Dental Care after experiencing how pleasant a Laser Dental Treatment can be.

Glastonbury Laser Dentistry Provides a Better Experience

By performing Laser Dental Treatments, we can eliminate the common reasons why people are uncomfortable during dental procedures – heat, pressure, and vibration. Once eliminated, many people do not even need anesthesia. That is why we can often complete fillings without our patients requesting an injection. Additionally, laser technology allows us to more accurately target specific areas of your mouth. The laser is incredibly thin so we can make precise incisions when necessary.

We can even use lasers to correct issues like tooth decay.  The difference is that the surrounding gum tissue is not impacted or irritated in any way. With traditional metal dental tools, a Dentist may irritate the surrounding tissue with an accidental slip of the hand. By removing this risk, our patients can undergo the same dental procedures but with a faster recovery time. Simultaneously, our patients are more comfortable than if the procedure was performed in the traditional manner. For example, Laser Dental Fillings achieve the same results but without the discomfort. Simultaneously, lasers can also be used to help stop the bleeding so that when a more intensive procedure is being performed, gauze may be unnecessary or only used temporarily. Patients can appreciate the opportunity to have dental work completed in this non-invasive way. If you would like to experience Laser Dentistry for yourself, we invite you to call (860) 289-8219 and schedule an appointment.

Laser Teeth Whitening in Glastonbury CT

At the Glastonbury Dental Center, we can transform your ordinary smile into something truly beautiful. If you are tired of having yellow or stained teeth, you are not alone. In our high tech Dental Center, we can perform an in-office whitening treatment with dramatic results. Your teeth can become eight shades whiter or more in a single sitting. The lasers essentially activate the whitening solution that is placed on your teeth. This means that your teeth will whiten much faster than if you treated them at home. While the results are stunning, the procedure is still entirely safe, making it an excellent solution for improving your appearance.

You can also whiten your teeth using custom-made whitening trays, and while this works, it can take a week or two to achieve the same results that we can get in an hour. When trying to decide which option to select, consider how much time you have to spend whitening your teeth and whether or not you have an immediate event that you want your teeth whitened for. If you are pressed for time, you should definitely have an in-office laser whitening treatment. We can schedule you and improve your smile in time for a new job interview, family vacation, wedding, etc.

When you visit the Glastonbury Dental Center, we will work to the best of our ability to provide you with the highest quality of dental care and do so in a way that is relaxing and comfortable. By offering Laser Dental Treatments, we eliminate the vibration, heat and pressure that generally causes discomfort during Dental Procedures. In fact, we even offer fillings without the need to use a drill.  Laser Dentistry is used in our office so that we can achieve our goal of keeping you comfortable. The technology is continuing to change and improve so if there are procedures that we are still using traditional dental tools for, we expect all or most of them to eventually be done using lasers. For now, we have implemented the use of lasers in our procedures to place dental veneers, fillings, crowns, dental implants, to whiten teeth, and treat gum disease, among others. If you want to learn more about how we use laser technology currently, call Glastonbury Dental Center and schedule an appointment with our dental office.

The Glastonbury Dental Center provides the following dental services:

We’re glad to serve the Central Connecticut Area including the following communities:

Manchester CT | Hartford CT | Wethersfield CT | East Hartford CT | South Windsor CT

Vernon CT | Portland CT | Glastonbury CT | South Glastonbury CT | Rocky Hill CT


Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting both hard and soft tissues (teeth and gums) with Laser Dentistry does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips!   Additionally, Laser Dentistry Treatments for gum procedures can often reduce bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling and the need for pain medication in many cases.

You can easily book your next appointment with us either over the phone on (860) 289-8219.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

Of course, one thing that being a professional dentist requires is the experience. Because there can be no true expertise that it is not backed by extensive experience.
