Laser Dentistry Superior comfort and results with the power of light

Ricardo M Perez, DDS embraces laser dentistry as a superior means to achieve quality results for fills, gum surgery, and more—with less downtime than traditional methods. Our lasers of choice are the Fotona LightWalker dental lasers, which are designed for dental perfectionists. Fotona lasers use a gentle light to help access the areas of your teeth that are covered by gum tissue without invasive cutting, need for sutures, or excessive bleeding. Bottom line—dental lasers provide a much more comfortable experience for patients, which we constantly strive for.

About Fotona LightWalker Dental Lasers

Today, there are many lasers designed for dentistry, but it wasn’t always this way. The first dental lasers were approved for use in soft tissue applications in the early 1990’s. Hard tissue (tooth material) lasers took longer to perfect. As the culmination of advancements in laser dentistry, Fotona LightWalker dental lasers are designed for both and make typical treatment procedures, such as fills and gum surgery, easier to perform. Plus, the results are generally better than with conventional procedures. Safe and efficient, these lasers are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Ricardo Perez, DDS has undergone the necessary training to use Fotona lasers correctly and effectively. In addition to general dentistry treatments, LightWalker lasers can be used for cosmetic dental procedures, such as tooth whitening and gum recontouring. We can even use lasers to treat cold sores and fever blisters.

Patient Review

Ricardo Perez, DDS is very easy to work with and generous with his time in explaining procedures.  All of his staff are competent and  professional; I look forward to going to my dentist’s office.  He is  knowledgeable about the latest dental procedures.  No other dentist that I had in the past took the time and effort to laser my gums that were uneven because of my accident.
