We do a lot of aesthetic work in my practice so I was investigating the purchase of a suitable laser. I mainly wanted it for the removal of veneers and crowns and we tested quite a few different lasers on the market. Litetouch was the easiest to use and the most versatile for my requirements.

What’s good about it

The Litetouch has a range of settings that make it an excellent tool for removing veneers and crowns with different thicknesses of ceramic. There’s not much penetration to the underlying tooth structure which is very important for me. Some of the other lasers I tested penetrated way beyond the ceramic which caused a bit of pitting. 

This is a hard and soft tissue laser. I use it for soft tissue contouring, flapless gum resections and gingival corrections. Not only am I able to do soft tissue corrections, but I can reduce the bone levels without having to raise a flap. The procedure works beautifully and the end result is really nice.

Once I purchased the laser, Litetouch sent out a team to set it up in my practice and provide four days of training. They also provide a 24/7 direct group chat if you have any questions. I’m not particularly techy so ease of use was one of the main reasons I was attracted to Litetouch.

What’s not so good

This is a high-tech piece of equipment so it’s important that maintenance protocols are followed. There is a bit of a learning curve and, at the beginning, a few things were forgotten. A few tips were broken along the way but we have a great system in place now.
