The wavelength of this laser cuts through both water and bone, specifically the calcium phosphate present in the bone which is also present in the teeth. Hard tissue lasers are used to prepare the teeth for filling , teeth desensitizing and laser whitening.
Soft tissue lasers:
Soft tissue lasers are used in soft tissue corrections. The wavelength of this type of lasers have a light wavelength that absorbs both water and haemoglobin which makes it ideal for gum corrections . This cuts the gums and seals the exposed blood vessels making it a blood free zone. The treatment procedures done with these lasers are
Gingivectomy / Gingivoplasty:
Gingivectomy/ Gingivoplasty is the removal of the gums or part of the gums or gingiva to contour the gums.

This procedure is done to eliminate the pockets aswel. Pockets are spaces that are present between the gum and teeth. When the pockets are too deep beyond the normal level. The gums are removed by passing the lasers thus preventing the further progression of the pocket deepening.
Crown lengthening is a procedure where part of the gums are removed from its original level to 1mm or 2mm below. Crown lengthening is done to increase the crown height . In a Root Canal Treated tooth crowning the tooth is required, in this circumstance when the required crown height is not present the gum level is reduced from its present level , thus increasing the height to the desirable need.
Curettage also know as deep cleaning , can be done with lasers with no pain and bleeding. Laser curettage is done on patients with gum problem. The laser is passed through the pockets , space present between the tooth and gums . This destroys the microbial infection present deep between the roots , gums and the bone. This helps in preventing further progression of the disease.
Flap surgery with lasers:
Flap surgery is the next line of treatment to deep cleaning for gum diseases. The gums are separated along the tooth surface and the bone , the unhealthy tissues are removed with laser and debridement along with sutures is placed. Sometime bone grafting is required in certain categories for better prognosis.

Metal ceramic crowns are crowns with core material being metal and surrounded with layers of ceramic. The types in metal ceramic crowns are
1. PFM (Porcelain Fused with Metal) crowns are a type of metal ceramic crowns where the ceramic layering over the core metal substructure is minimal up to one or two layers. This minimal layering of ceramic over metal provides a very good strength for the crown.
2. DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) crowns are one of the next updated type compared to the PFM crowns. The ceramic layering over the metal structure is up to five or six. Increasing the layering of ceramic over metal increases the wear and tear resistance of the ceramic layer.
Unlike regular metal ceramic crowns, WE Dental provides with accurate shade match of the crowns to that of the natural tooth with its advance and fully equipped lab , as the presence of metal as the sub structure , leads to the reflection of the metal making it a mis-match. With the advanced

Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment is performed when dental caries reach the pulp (blood vessels and nerve supply to the tooth). Unlike the old techniques, RCT being performed with multiple sittings, WE Dental has adapted with the advanced technique where the procedure itself is finished in a single sitting from 20 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the teeth (front or back teeth) making it more comfortable to the patient’s part.
This procedure is done under local anesthesia. The caries are first excavated completely and the access is prepared , i.e. the pulp chamber of the tooth is reached. The infected pulp tissues consisting the blood vessels and nerves are extirpated followed by cleaning pulp chamber and pulp canal deep into the root. This procedure requires a couple of X-rays.
The cleaning of the pulp canal is done to remove the left over infected pulp remnants and debris. Irrigation of the pulpal canal is mandatory with medicaments and solutions which help is disinfecting till the root apex.
The pulp canal is irrigated and dried completely. The root canal filling material called the Gutta Percha are coated with medicament, placed into the canal till the root apex and then sealed. Then a filling is done in the tooth.
The above mentioned steps of the root canal procedure does not end just with the filling, it is fully complete only after a crown is cemented to the tooth as the root canal treated tooth cannot withstand the masticatory force on its own for a long duration. If crown is not fixed, the tooth ends up with fracture and ending up finally with extraction leading to failure of the whole root canal procedure.
Laser root canal treatment is another advancement used in the present day practice. Lasers are used as an adjunct in root canal treatment. The laser beam is passed through the root canals that helps in decontamination.
WE Dental being one of the most advanced dental centers in the city employes the best technique understanding the need and comfort of the patient. On adapting to single visit endodontic technique ensures the patients to receive the whole treatment in a very less duration with complete care and concern.
Braces are the techniques employed for teeth alignment. Brackets are bonded to the tooth surface and wires are attached to the brackets which help in the tooth movement leading to the exact alignment of the teeth in the arch form. The duration of the treatment depends on the complexity of mal-alignment of the teeth.
Metal braces are the conventional technique, where the brackets are bonded to the tooth surface and bendable metal wires are attached to the brackets in order to apply pressure leading to the movement of the teeth. The older technique had wires and brackets that are noticeable that could be annoying because of their size and intrusiveness. In the present day, metal brackets have become advanced such that the brackets are smaller in size thus reducing its noticeabilty. WE Dental being the advanced dental clinic has adapted to the advanced generation of metal braces.
Ceramic braces are alternative to metal braces. These braces are far less noticeable as compared to the metal braces. These are brackets that are to the tooth colour and blend to the tooth. Tooth coloured wires are also used such that they become much more less noticeable. These are comparatively expensive than the metal braces. These braces are aesthetically pleasing.
Self – ligating braces are similar to conventional braces except for the ligatures. No elastics or bands are required in this type instead special clips or brackets are used to help the archwire move your teeth to place. Self-ligating brackets speeds up the alignment of the teeth. But in certain situations case scenarios elastics are required, in that condition Self-ligating braces are not applicable.
Lingual braces are another advancement in the field of orthodontics. These braces are worn on the back surface of the teeth. These braces are not fixed on the front surface of the teeth making them virtually invisible. These are custom made braces for each patient.
As these braces are fixed to the back portion of the teeth there comes difficulty to adapt to lingual braces than the conventional braces as it affects the tongue. There comes difficulty in swallowing without tongue thrust and talking becomes little tricky as the braces are fixed towards the tongue surface.
Clear Aligners are invisible aligners as the name predicts, they are invisible kind of braces employed for the correction of mal alignment of teeth. The great advantage in opting aligners is the confidence in communicating and smiling doesn’t get disturbed as that occurring with braces.
This contains a number of trays in pairs , which the patient fix them inside their mouth. Each pair of trays are to be worn and changed according to the duration instructed. These aligners don’t require regular visits to the dentist as required with metal or ceramic braces. These are totally invisible and patient friendly.
Scaling and Polishing
Deposition of food between the gums and teeth is a common oral health problem encountered by each and everyone. These deposits initially adhere to the tooth surface called as debris appear to be as soft deposits called plaque. These plaque can be removed by normal brushing.
When these deposits are not noticed or left ignored , it becomes hard and adheres very firmly to the tooth surfaces. These hard deposits known as calculus cannot be removed by normal brushing, it requires professional cleaning followed by polishing.
These deposits if left without cleaning leads to gum diseases where it forms as a bacterial infection damaging the gingiva then progressing to the wherever causing bone resorption or bone loss ending up with teeth mobility and inability to chew.

WE Dental offers with option for filling the teeth with the best quality. Normal filling where the filling material doesn’t match exactly to the tooth shade and appears white in colour. The next option is the tooth coloured filling where the filling exactly matches to the tooth shade not giving even a clue that a filling has been done to the tooth. These fillings have good strength and less wear and tear resistance on comparison to the normal filling.
The tooth coloured fillings are also falling under cosmetic correction when the decay is in the anterior teeth. These tooth colour fillings are also present in wide variants at WE Dental making its clients opt their own according to their need. Photographs are taken in order to select the exact shade to that of the tooth and the filling is done with keen interest and enthusiasm to bring about the original appearance of the tooth where one cannot appreciate the difference between the tooth and the filling.
Deep cleaning is archived when the gum infection had started to a considerable level where the bone loss is just minimal. Administration of local anaesthesia is required in this procedure as the cleaning is done deep into the gums thus removing the bacterial infection.
In the traditional technique curettes – hand instrument have been used for deep cleaning where it was time consuming procedure. In the upgrading generation ultrasonic scalers have been adapted as one of the advanced technique making the procedure more effective in terms of prognosis and time consumption.
WE Dental being the advanced dental center has been adapting to the advanced treatment option of using ultrasonic scalers in performing the procedure very efficiently. The treatment is made extremely painless right from administration of anaesthesia to the end of the procedure
