"i have been going to this dental practice for some time. And if you at all believe that consistency over time has anything to do with creating a brand and an experience, you should consider this for any and all of your dental needs. For creating an experience that is warm, informative and honest I think deserves special attention particular in any kind of health arena. "Bedside manner' is exemplary as is every aspect of the office beginning with the front desk. I have experienced several drs. here, and will say they all share a similar kind of personality and approach to what dental care is and should be. Dr. Roth is my primary here and any specialists they refer you to or who attend the practice for special needs all exhibit this same kind of human aspect and above all outstanding knowledge and experience. I will assume all the hygenists are of the same standard but I can only speak for one I regularly go to, Janice. I can't imagine someone being so passionate about that kind of work, c'mon think about it....ha! But she is and her thoroughness is hard to match, and then there is just who she is as a person. Plus, if you can imagine a dentist office actually have an energy of fun, in engaging with the staff...you don't have to imagine anymore....Health is worth the investment and I think if you have to go, what helps you get there is knowing you are in not only caring hands but truly human ones....that are however highly technical when it comes to the most current insights on dental issues. I schlep there, you should to!"- L.K. / Google / Nov 16, 2018

The use of lasers in dentistry is a relatively new advent. Dental lasers can be used in the treatment of tooth decay, gum disease, biopsy and lesion removal, and teeth whitening procedures. In dentistry, different types of lasers serve several unique functions. When used in surgical dental procedures, lasers act as a cutting instrument. Lasers can also be used to "cure" or "set" a filling by strengthening the bond between the restoration and the natural tooth. At SmilesNY, lasers are also used to enhance the effects of in-office whitening systems. Whether you are looking for a more effective treatment or are wanting to improve the brightness of your smiles, we can help specialize a laser treatment to fit your specific needs and wants.
What to Expect
At SmilesNY, we perform laser treatments as in-office procedures and they typically only require a local anesthetic. However, other sedation options are available if you have any anxiety or dental fears. Before your procedure, your dentists will go over exactly what to expect during the treatment. Laser treatments minimize bleeding and can eliminate the need for stitches in laser gum treatments which can lead to quicker healing times.
Patients will be given recovery instructions before they are discharged to go home. Considering that your gums may be sore or swollen, you may want to adhere to a liquid or soft food diet for a few days. For gum treatments, you may have to schedule a follow-up appointment so that your SmilesNY dentist can assess your healing and decide if another treatment is necessary. If a biopsy was conducted, you may need to come back into our office to receive your results. If oral cancer is diagnosed, your dentist will go over your treatment options and next steps.
Once your laser treatment plan is created, a member of our financial team will go over the costs. SmilesNY accepts several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing. If you have dental insurance, our office will contact your carrier to determine your coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
To get a quicker and more accurate treatment, our New York dentists employ an advanced laser system for restorative and cosmetic procedures. Whether you have to take care of gum disease, eradicate tooth decay, or improve the appearance of your smile, laser treatments offer faster appointments and recovery times.
