Abstract

All-ceramic restoration is popular due to the wide range of benefits associated with it. Nevertheless, all-ceramic restoration has a short life span, which necessitates replacement or removal when it is no longer effective. The traditional techniques used in removing the all-ceramic restoration involved utilizing rotary instruments to grind the veneer and this made the procedure time-consuming as well as inconvenient. However, the use of a laser-assisted approach is a promising treatment protocol in removing the all-ceramic restoration. The procedure is characterized by a wide range of advantages that lead to a surge in its popularity among dentists and also emaciates interest among researchers. The systematic review intends to provide a comprehensive systematic review that will demonstrate laser-assisted removal of all-ceramic restoration as an effective approach. The systematic review reveals that using laser-aided technology to remove all-ceramic restorations is a much more effective process compared to the conventional grinding mechanisms. Firstly, the procedure is efficient because it is easy to procure, associated with minimum pain, and does not result in damages to the patient’s tooth surface. Secondly, the time taken to complete the procedure is less when using laser-aided technology.
