Laser Dentistry

With advanced laser technology, undergoing a dental procedure has never been easier. These revolutionary treatments can safely and gently correct virtually any tooth or gum issue – whitening stained teeth, eliminating gum disease and much more.

Benefits of laser dentistry

Lasers have transformed the dental industry in incredible ways. These procedures offer countless appealing benefits to our Santa Barbara patients, including:

  • No stiches
  • Minimal swelling and blood loss
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Enhanced precision
  • Less damage to the surrounding tissues
  • Faster healing

What can laser dentistry accomplish?

At Dr. Omid Barkhordar’s Santa Barbara office, there are few dental procedures he can’t accomplish with laser dentistry. By leveraging the power of laser technology, he’s been able to successfully:

Treat gum disease

Lasers offer a comfortable way to treat any stage of gum disease – eliminating the infection and restoring your optimal oral health.

Remove tissue and lesions

In our Santa Barbara office, Dr. Barkhordar has used lasers to eliminate cold sores to relieve pain and he’s removed suspicious tissue so it can be biopsied for cancer.

Whiten and brighten stained teeth

Laser teeth whitening offers an ideal solution for patients who want to restore a gleaming smile. It quickly whitens the teeth to achieve a dramatic improvement with very minimal discomfort.

Detect cavities and prepare dental fillings

Not only can highly-sensitive lasers detect among the smallest cavities, but they can also eliminate the need for anesthesia and the dental drill when preparing the tooth for a filling.

Correct tooth sensitivity

By precisely targeting the root of the tooth, powerful lasers can offer profound relief from sensitivity – restoring your ability to eat and drink comfortably.

Perform crown lengthening procedures

Crown lengthening involves revealing more of your natural tooth above the gum. It’s often required to prepare your tooth for the placement of crowns or to correct a “gummy” smile. In either case, lasers offer a precise, gentle and efficient way to reshape your gum tissue.

Types of dental lasers

All dental lasers are not created equal. There are three common types available, and they are all used for different procedures and purposes. During your initial consultation at our Santa Barbara office, Dr. Barkhordar will offer personalized guidance regarding which option will best resolve your unique dental issues.


The DIAGNOdent System is used primarily for detecting tooth decay as quickly as possible. This is important because it can preserve more of your natural tissue and prevent pain, sensitivity and other complications that are known to accompany cavities. Additionally, the earlier cavities are detected, the better your aesthetic outcome.

Diode Lasers

This revolutionary laser can be used for a variety of dental procedures, including tooth whitening, removing lesions, eliminating plaque and contouring the gums. This laser is impressive because it treats the area with heightened precision, resulting in minimal pain and rapid healing.


The Waterlase tool uses a laser beam that also projects water to perform a number of common dental procedures, including removing enamel and tooth decay. It can also be used to reshape the teeth and gums, and to provide easy access to the jawbone when placing dental implants. This laser eliminates the need for anesthesia in many cases, and results in no bleeding and very minimal discomfort.
