Title: Use of Erbium laser on aesthetic restorations
Aesthetics has gained importance in dentistry, reflecting a growing demand by patients who seek an enhanced appearance. In this context, several technologies were developed to help clinicians in achieving good results with less substrate loss. The erbium lasers are being widely used on anterior restorations for its favorable outcomes over a conventional cavity preparation and resin composite removal by burs. However, it should be used carefully, with safe protocols and well trained professionals. This presentation will discuss with scientific evidence and clinical protocols the use of Erbium lasers on aesthetic restorations.
