All-Ceramic Restoration Removal Using an Er,Cr:YSGG Laser

Adhesive bonding lies at the core of aesthetic dentistry and involves various restorative materials that can be used to “mimic” nature. When the removal of a bonded porcelain restoration is necessary, a high-speed hand piece with a diamond bur has been the only option for clinicians to facilitate removal and reveal the remaining tooth structure. By using minimally invasive laser technology, however, the clinician may remove a bonded restoration without cutting it off by simply reversing the light or dual-cure resin chemical reaction. Feldspathic and/or pressed ceramic restorations can be removed via an Er,Cr:YSGG laser, which selectively interacts in water molecules in the adhesive resin and hybrid zone.

*Private practice, Charlotte, NC.
