Learn More About Our Technology Techniques at State Street Smiles

Technology has become an integral part of our daily lives, continuously improving our quality of life. Dentistry is no exception  — in fact, it’s an essential part of modern dentistry. 

At State Street Smiles, we keep our office equipped with the latest technology for your benefit, which includes laser dentistry using the esteemed Solea Laser. Laser dentistry is an innovative, minimally invasive type of dental care that can treat many dental issues with no pain, no needles, and limited recovery time since no numbing is needed.

What is the Solea Laser?

The Solea Laser is the first CO2 dental laser cleared by the FDA for both hard and soft tissue procedures. Developed in Boston using research from the University of California School of Dentistry, the Solea produces a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures. This has truly changed the world of dentistry by creating an easy, pain-free dental experience for children and adults alike. 

What are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry? 

Staying up-to-date on your dental appointments is vital. But for those who are short on time, have sensitive mouths, or fear the dentist, that isn’t always easy. Laser dentistry can make the entire experience easier. 

Here are a few benefits of laser dentistry:

  • Less pain during dental work.
  • Faster healing time.
  • Less bleeding.
  • No drills or needles. 
  • Anesthesia (Novocaine) may not be necessary.
  • No frozen face. 
  • Better overall work since lasers are extremely precise. 
  • A reduction in the risk of virus and bacteria transmission by limiting the number of aerosols and splatter that are created during a procedure, keeping both patients and staff healther. 

Our Laser Dentistry Services 

So, what can the Solea Laser do for you? Here are a few common laser dentistry services we offer at State Street Smiles:


  • Cavity treatment
  • Gum surgery 
  • Tongue and lip tie correction 
  • Tooth preparation for fillings and crowns
  • Bacterial removal
  • Gum reshaping
  • Treating tooth sensitivity

Laser Tongue and Lip Tie Correction

Laser tongue and lip tie correction, also known as a frenectomy, is frequently done for tongue-tied babies who are having difficulty feeding. The procedure can also be performed on teens and adults who have gum recession or large gaps between the teeth. Using Solea technology, we can perform this procedure with ease with virtually no pain for our youngest patients. 

The benefits of a frenectomy can positively affect your child’s health in several ways. Laser tongue and lip tie corrections increase the odds of successful breastfeeding and prevent possible dental problems down the road. In teens and adults, the procedure can improve self-confidence, help reduce pain and discomfort from gum recession, and can improve both bite function and speech function.

How often should I see a dentist?

We recommend that our patients visit the dentist at least twice a year. These appointments will generally consist of a dental exam, oral cancer screening, and teeth cleaning.

Sometimes, if a patient has gum disease or is suffering from tooth decay, they will need to have more frequent visits. This can be further discussed during your biannual checkups with our team.

What do I need to bring to my first appointment?

When you come in for your first appointment, we suggest filling out our adult or child patient forms prior to your visit. This will help make your time here efficient and convenient.

We also please ask that you have the following items:

  • Identification such as Driver’s License, Military ID or State ID
  • Dental Insurance Card (if applicable)
  • Record of Medical History
  • Method of Payment
Do you accept dental insurance?

Here at State Street Smiles, we accept most dental insurance providers. Each insurance company will have different plans with various benefits, so it’s always best to check with your employer to see what your provider offers.

Our team can help call your insurance company to determine your benefits to help you better understand the costs of your desired treatment. If there is anything important that you need to know, we will always contact you before your appointment.

Do you offer children’s dentistry?

Yes! We welcome patients of all ages here at State Street Smiles, which includes children. We want to be your trustworthy dentists for the entire family to make your visits more convenient and comfortable for everyone.

Whether your little one needs early infant treatment, a regular cleaning, orthodontic care, or restorative treatment, we can do it. Give our Hackensack dental office a call if you have questions regarding pediatric dentistry or to schedule an appointment.
