Laser Dentistry

Traditional dental procedures can maintain your oral health, but the latest innovations in the field of dentistry offer unique benefits.

Our dentists use laser dentistry because it is safe, effective, and involves shorter recovery times than traditional treatments.

See how Drs. David Garate and Myriam Falcon use technology to provide patients with a number of treatments.

Perfect Smiles California in Chula Vista, CA, is proud to serve patients throughout Chula Vista, San Diego, National City, and beyond.

Our Laser Procedures

Laser dentistry can accomplish many of the same things as traditional periodontal treatments without the need for a scalpel and sutures. The advanced dentistry procedures at our Chula Vista, CA, practice include dental therapies that target the soft tissues of the mouth.


Advanced gum disease can lead to cavities, tooth loss, and a variety of other dental concerns. If you have advanced gum disease, LANAP® laser gum surgery is an FDA-cleared method for encouraging gum tissue reattachment and regenerating bone tissue. LANAP is unique because it can target diseased tissue without removing healthy tissue and decrease the depth of periodontal pockets.

Discover LANAP


For patients who need surgery for severe gum disease that cannot be cured with antibiotics or other treatment methods, our dentists can perform a gingivectomy using laser dentistry. This dental procedure removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to reduce pockets between the teeth and gums. After a gingivectomy, it is often easier for patients to keep their teeth and gums clean, reducing the probability of tooth loss and developing cavities.

Cold Sore Treatment

Drs. Garate and Falcon can use lasers to heat a cold sore or canker sore to kill the virus and stimulate your body’s healing response. This procedure lasts about 15 minutes, and many patients notice improved symptoms after their appointment.
