Utilizing Lasers to Sculpt and Shape a Smile

NEW! DentistryToday.com now offers this quick and informative area with
video techniques from some of the top clinicians in dentistry.

This featured Technique of the Week is led by Hugh Flax, DDS, who demonstrates how to sculpt and shape a smile using lasers. Dr. Flax discusses the benefits of lasers, namely that they provide artistic control for the dentist to create ideal flow and aesthetics for the patient. The video shows Dr. Flax sculpting the gums as he explains that learning to use a laser is similar to learning to use a handpiece; there is a learning curve, but any clinician can easily adapt to this technology.
