Minimal Prep With Laser


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


Dr. George Kirtley, of Indianapolis, Ind, performs a minimal prep case of 6 upper teeth. His preferred approach is to initially angle the bur at 45° for “drawing” a line and margin along the gumline. A reduction guide is necessary after preparation for the placement. A laser is used in this procedure, as the onlay veneers are prepped and placed with this minimally invasive technique.
