Waterlase is a dental laser developed by Biolase Technology and is a commonly used instrument in microdentistry, as well as restorative dentistry.

Detailed Description

Waterlase harnesses the power of hydrokinetic energy to carry out functions like removing enamel, dentin, and areas of tooth decay. Waterlase differs from other dental lasers in that the laser beam is energized by a stream of water. Like procedures carried out with other dental lasers, procedures performed with Waterlase require minimal anesthesia. The heat from the Waterlase also assists in blood clotting, which can speed up healing time.

Yes it is worth it. As long as the result is that you have whiter teeth.
