Laser dentistry has revolutionized traditional dentistry. With dental lasers, our dentists are able to complete treatment more efficiently than ever before. Dental lasers are designed to aid in many cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry procedures. Soft tissue lasers allow our team to remove soft tissue safely and gently, thus eliminating the need for traditional scalpels, or in some cases, soft tissue surgery.
As a modern dental practice, Cosmetic Dentistry Associates has adopted the Styla MicroLaser into our Pomona, NY dentist office. We are currently the only county to offer this advanced technology. This handheld, wireless laser allows us to perform soft tissue treatments with high-level precision, accuracy, and patient care. As experienced dentists, Dr. Peter Auster and Dr. Frances Tang are committed to giving our patients the highest level of dental care. Laser dentistry allows our team of dentists to perform the treatments you need with better accuracy and precision.
What Can Dental Lasers Treat?
Dental lasers are a versatile tool that may be used in a range of cosmetic, general, and restorative treatments. Soft tissue lasers can be used to perform these key treatments.
- Gingival contouring
- Reshaping soft tissue
- Periodontal therapy
- Implant recovery
- Removing lesions
- Gingival troughing
Traditionally these treatments may have required the use of scalpels or oral surgery; with our soft tissue lasers, our dentist can deliver gentle light therapy to safely address your dentistry needs. We have incorporated the cordless, handheld Styla MicroLaser into our dental practice. This revolutionary microlaser fits comfortably in our dentists’ hands, allowing them to move and operate comfortably throughout your treatment. Every Styla MicroLaser is custom engineered to deliver focused power and ease-of-use. The beauty of laser dentistry is it offers patients an alternative to traditional methods of treatment. Now, more than ever before, patients can visit the dentist office with a renewed sense of comfort and safety.
Laser Dentistry in Pomona, NY
When using a dental laser, a local anesthetic may no longer be required. Patients may also forgo sutures and stitches. Dental lasers can gentle cut through soft tissue while sealing visible blood vessels in the process; this minimizes bleeding throughout your procedure and promotes faster recovery.

Laser Dentistry FAQs
Is laser dentistry painful?
No. Dental procedures completed with laser dentistry do not cause pain, and can significantly reduce the amount of pain felt during your recovery period. Dental lasers are safe and very effective in reducing recovery time.
Is gum disease treatment with lasers more effective than without them?
Yes. Treatment for bleeding gums, gingivitis, and advanced periodontal disease can rid you of gum disease in as little as one visit. Dental lasers have been used for years to quickly and efficiently treat gum disease. Treatment with dental lasers reduces the chances of the disease coming back.
Do gums grow back after laser dentistry?
No, your gums will not grow back. Treatment for a gummy smile and gum recontouring is permanent. Although your gum tissue won’t regenerate like other types of tissue, your gums will heal new healthy tissue after treatment.
