Laser Dentistry — A Gentler Alternative

September 25, 2023

The future of dentistry has arrived at Kitsilano Smiles with the addition of our new Solea dental laser. Solea is an advanced new dental laser technology that is virtually replacing the needle, drill, and scalpel in the dental office. Solea can accommodate patients of all ages and procedures of all kinds—without the need for anesthetic in most cases. It is the first FDA-approved CO2 laser able to work on both soft and hard tissue (teeth and gums).

Most patients do not feel a thing, although some claim to feel a slight cool sensation. They’re able to leave the office and carry on with their day without that uncomfortable, numb sensation almost immediately after Dr. Huish completes the procedure.

Kitsilano Smiles conducted our Solea ribbon cutting ceremony in September—helped along by Bella, who couldn’t resist the red ribbon! It has been put to use ever since to glowing reviews. Book your checkup at Kitsilano Smiles and it’s very likely your next dental reconstruction will also be your most painless.
