What Laser Procedures Do You Offer?

Gum Contouring

Does excessive display of gingival tissue make you feel self-conscious? Many people find their smile unattractive because of their gummy smile. If you are one of them, talk to our dentists about how we can use laser to correct your gummy smile. We use concentrated beams of laser to comfortably and efficiently remove excess gum tissues. Schedule your consultation today!   

Canker Sores Treatment

We use laser to treat canker sores. Also known as aphthous ulcer, canker sores are small lesions that develop in the soft tissues of the mouth. Laser beams painlessly penetrate the lesion and help the healing process. Patients usually see the canker sore heal within 24 hours compared to about a week without the laser treatment. If your canker cores are bothering you, talk to us about who we can quickly and effectively treat them. Book your appointment today.  

Removal of Benign Tumors

Laser can also be used to painlessly remove benign lesions that have formed in the soft tissues of the mouth, such as the palate, gums, and sides of cheeks and lips, without the need for invasive surgery and sutures.

Crown Lengthening

When you need a dental crown for aesthetic or structural reasons, but there’s isn’t enough of the tooth to hold a crown on its own. In such a situation, we use laser treatment to reduce gum tissue to expose more of your teeth so it can accommodate the crown. Talk to our dentists today if a chipped, decayed, or broken tooth is preventing you from a recommended dental crown.

Cavity Detection & Filling

Lasers are a very effective tool to detect cavities by finding evidence of tooth decay, remove the decay easily and painlessly without the need for drills, and prepare the surrounding enamel for the filling. Keep in mind, though, that not all cavities and fillings are suitable for laser treatment. Talk to our expert dentists in Palo Alto about all your laser dentistry questions. Call today!

Teeth Whitening

Lasers can speed up traditional teeth whitening procedures by speeding up the chemical reactions of whitening solution, reducing the time per session as well as the number of sessions required to achieve a desired level of whiteness. Laser beams speed up the reactions of the peroxide solutions, thereby making the entire procedure fast and convenient. Check our teeth whitening special and reserve your spot now!    

  • Dr Yen is a great dental care provider. I have recommended him to people at work. His advice is conservative, honest which is hard to find in dentists around this area. He is generally happy and cordial with all his patients. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Alex Yen is an awesome dentist!! I've been going to him for a few years now and every time it's been a great experience. The staff is very friendly and the dental assistants always do a great job. I got a teeth whitening procedure done which isn't the most comfortable thing to have done, but it went by super fast and was done well. Dr. Yen always explains what he sees on X-rays or with your teeth so it's easy to understand. He also encourages and teaches best practices so you keep your mouth clean in between visits. Definitely recommend!

  • Alex Yen is a fantastic dentist. I initially only went to him for a cleaning, but he noticed some white spots and stains on my front teeth that had bothered me for years and offered a few options for how to fix them. I went back recently to have that done, and he did an awesome job. My teeth look perfect, the process was quick (took ~45 minutes), and I no longer feel self-conscious about how those teeth look. Dr. Yen is confident and professional and explains clearly what he is doing. His services are very affordable. I'm a Stanford grad student on Cardinal care. My cleaning was free, and 3 sealants plus the cosmetic procedure were only $150, even with minimal coverage from my dental insurance. The front desk is helpful and friendly, and they respond promptly to questions about scheduling, cost estimates, etc.
