SOLEA Dental Laser
A CHANGE FOR THE HAPPIER
The miracle we’ve both been waiting for is here: Solea. Now available to you, Solea is a powerful dental laser that replaces the dental drill in the majority of procedures in our practice. It causes virtually no pain, vibration or noise. In fact, nearly every patient skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it. Solea is our way of keeping you happy. Because more than anything, we love to see you smile.
WHAT IS SOLEA?
Solea is the first CO2 dental laser system cleared by the FDA for hard
and soft tissue procedures. It was developed in Boston, Massachusetts by Convergent Dental, based on research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry. Solea offers a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures for both teeth and gums from simple cavities to complex surgeries. Not only is the laser virtually painless, it is also vibrationless and noiseless. The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you were just at a dental appointment.
The majority of hard and soft tissue procedures are done with no anesthesia and soft tissue procedures are done with virtually no bleeding. We are able to execute multi-quadrant dentistry, fillings on the fly and soft tissue procedures in a single appointment. That means our patients are now able to receive the care they need in a fraction of the time that they were accustomed to from traditional drills. It is also far less invasive than using a traditional handpiece or surgical instruments, which makes healing time following a procedure much shorter. When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent. With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that numb sensation following your appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.

Digital tooth shade matching/Shade-x:
One of the most important pieces of information to achieve beautiful and natural looking restorations is the communication of color. However, many outside factors play a role in this precise process. Dentists still rely on their own visual acuity to perform shade matching – a completely subjective technique that is prone to errors such as lighting in the room, time of day, fatigue and ability to accurately see color. The Shade-x results are confirmed with matching shade tabs by Dr. Weintraub and his team, significantly improving our ability to give you a beautiful smile.
