Laser Dentistry

“Colorado Center for Dental Excellence is always looking for ways to make your experience more comfortable and more convenient. Laser dentistry can do both of these, making it one of the most exciting new advances in dentistry. Ask Dr. Monroe how lasers can help you get a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile. The laser provides comfortable soft tissue procedures with the use of only topical anesthetic, no shots.”

  • Eliminate tooth sensitivity
  • Cold sore treatment
  • Eliminate canker sore pain
  • Frenectomy (for orthodontics, gum recession, or “tongue-tied” release without sutures)
  • Laser assisted cleanings
  • Removal of excess gum tissue without a scalpel
  • Treat gum disease


It has been shown that dental lasers are safe for both children and adults. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several types of dentistry lasers for use on adults and children. Many of the lasers for dentistry are similar or identical in design to other medical lasers that have been used successfully for years in the specialties of ophthalmology, neurosurgery, Ear/Nose/Throat (ENT), and dermatology.

Advantages of Laser Dentistry include:

  • Minimal or no anesthesia
  • Minimal bleeding
  • More controlled swelling
  • Reduced postoperative infection/discomfort
  • Less chance of infection
  • Reduced time in dentist’s office
  • Less pain
  • Faster healing
  • A more sterilized environment (dental laser kills bacteria)

Dr. Monroe knows which types of procedures are more patient friendly with a laser than with alternative traditional methods. Dr. Monroe and her laser certified hygienist have devoted extensive training time to achieve advanced proficiency in lasers in order to bring to you the many advantages of this exciting new technology. Dr. Monroe will be able to determine whether or not laser dentistry is right for you.
