The gingiva re-contouring smile design can be performed in an excellent way with LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser. The laser can artistically sculpt the soft tissue around the teeth in a very precise mode without compromising the health and the function of the gingiva.
The small ablating areas, guaranteed by the LiteTouch™ selected tip diameter ( 0.2-0.4 mm), provides the ability to shape and contour the marginal gingiva in a minimal invasive mode. The large tip diameters (1.0-1.3 mm) are successfully used to eliminate the gum melanin deposit. The LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser is the gold standard tool for soft tissue cosmetic dentistry, with less bleeding ,no scarring, decreased postoperative swelling or discomfort and predictable fast healing.
Recently the Er:YAG laser gentle treatment (Low energy) has been used for ceramic conditioning in order to provide higher bond strength values for all ceramic crown cementation or repair of ceramic crowns and veneers fractures . The precise ablation, guaranteed by the small tips diameter, is excellent for the debonding of porcelain veneers and crowns, preserving healthy tooth substance.
