Laser surgery refers to any procedure that involves the use of a laser instead of a scalpel, drill, or another cutting tool. It is a fast, modern approach to many restorative and cosmetic dental treatments.
A laser is more accurate than a scalpel, allowing for more focused treatment and shorter healing time.

In some cases, you may not even require an anaesthetic before your treatment.
