With every passing year, lasers in Dentistry are becoming more popular so as cosmetic dentistry. Changing smiles and making extreme differences in our patients’ mouth are both difficult and time consuming procedures unless you have a suitable laser to improve the results and the comfort of the patients. Some of the procedures especially on soft tissues are really time-consuming with conventional surgeries. Also the results sometimes are not that satisfying. Treatments like gingivoplasty, frenectomy or crown lengthening can be done with suitable Lasers in a shorter time and almost without losing even a day to continue to your next step treatment. Orthodontic treatments are certainly the most important part of the minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry. Especially with the use of the lasers during and after the treatments, we can obtain a true esthetic. Every day in our practice we deal with patients who are in need of prosthetic treatments. With the improvements of the CAD-CAM systems like CEREC we can have great results. But if we involve our suitable lasers before, during and after the treatments there is almost nothing that we cannot change in the esthetic of the patients. Like gingival recontouring without waiting for the healing, etching of both tooth and the porcelain restoration for the bonded veneers and crowns or even the removal of the full ceramic restorations within seconds and without causing any harm to the restoration. Whatever we do with our lasers will surely surprise our patients but think about giving them a new smile in minimal invasive way with a great comfort.
