A cosmetic dentist in Hertfordshire is now offering nervous patients the option of laser dentistry.
Laser dentistry negates the need for local anaesthetic and can be used to perform drill-free fillings, carry out gum treatments and correct uneven gum lines.
The Perfect Smile Studios & Academy is one of only a few practices in the UK to offer laser dentistry, which is ideal for anxious or nervous patients.
The laser focuses on very specific areas, which helps to minimise discomfort and reduce recovery times.
Dr Rahul Doshi, partner at the Perfect Smile Studios & Academy, revealed: "We've found that offering laser treatments to patients who are very anxious about dental treatments and visits to the dentist puts them immediately at ease as they recognise that treatment is over and done with much quicker, with no stitches…and very little bleeding."
The Perfect Smile Studios & Academy also offers sedation treatment for nervous patients.
