  1. 1. A LASER SMILE Aesthetic crown lengthening is a technically demanding endeavour that requires higher degree of precision than what may be achieved with a scalpel blade. Soft-tissue diode lasers offer unprecedented levels of precision while achieving excellent hemostasis and faster healing compared to electrosurgery and traditional scalpel .Slide No. 1 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  2. 2. MODE OF APPLICATION Contact mode Noncontact mode Output power modes Continuous wave PulsedSlide No. 2 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14

  4. 4. Advantages Over Conventional ProceduresDry and bloodless surgeryInstant sterilization of surgical siteReduced bacteremiaIncreased patient comfortFaster healing Slide No. 4 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  5. 5. Disadvantages Carbonization Ocular injury Loss of tactile feedback in non contact mode Higher cost than traditional methods Diode lasers can not ablate hard tissuesSlide No. 5 Dr. Harleen Kaur. Poster No.14
  6. 6. Conclusion Diode Lasers are compact and reliable surgical instruments which are suitable alternative to conventional aesthetic crown lengthening techniques in terms of clinical effectiveness and practicality and would be a welcome addition to armamentarium of a dentist if a suitable protocol could be applied to it minimizing collateral damage.Slide No. 6 Dr. Harleen Kaur.
