I have been having the skin tightening with the Gentle Yag for 3 or 4 sessions. My latest treatment was last Thursday and as the technician was doing my upper lip, she told me to be sure to keep my tongue between my lip and teeth because she "didn't want to hit my teeth with the laser." It never occurred to me that my teeth were at risk. That evening I felt something unusual about one of my teeth. It had a strange ridge on it. I went to look in a good light and realized my front tooth had a diagonal crack in it. I immediately made a connection between the technician's remark that day and the fact I had a broken tooth. The worst part for me is that my top 6 front teeth are porcelain crowns which cost $10,000. And, they are not single crowns, but two pairs of three teeth. So, to repair the one tooth, I will need to have all three in the set replaced costing approximately $3500 according to my dentist who I saw for consultation today. I have attempted to contact the salon to speak to the owner to tell her about the incident. I will hold them responsible for the injury to my tooth. BEWARE.

I waited for a call from Smooth Skin Centers in reply to complaint about my cracked tooth. The office manager called about a week after the fact. He was very nice and not defensive at all. He wanted to talk to my dentist to get his opinion of the crack in my tooth. To date, no one has been able to establish cause and effect but to me it seems too more than a coincidence.. My dentist is researching the publications to see if there are other examples of cracked or broken teeth from laser skin tightening or laser hair removal. Right now we're in limbo so I'll post again when something is determined.

This was a Groupon deal. I wanted to have some topical treatment done and this seemed like a good introduction to Botox, laser hair removal and skin tightening
