The Special Laboratory of Lasers in Dentistry (LELO – University of Sao Paulo,Brazil) has developed basic researches and clinical protocols using high and low intensity lasers making their use feasible in clinical practice. It is important to point out the clinical indications of high and low intensity lasers in Dentistry and highlight the benefits of their use as co-adjuvant to conventional procedures. A review of published studies and reports of clinical cases enabled an overview of possibilities and limitations of the use of lasers in dentistry. In the field of Esthetic
Dentistry, high and low intensity lasers are shown to positively contribute to the management of both hard and soft tissues, and consequently, to the prognosis of the treatment. Clinical benefits of the use of low and high intensity lasers - such as laser irradiation following cavity preparation, final removal of carious tissues, periodontal tissue biomodulation, internal surface conditioning of porcelain prior to final luting, enamel and dentin conditioning of cervical lesions and reconstruction of canine and incisor guides – are important aspects to be considered for their indication in Dentistry. Understanding how laser treatment contributes to soft and hard tissue management will certainly help the professional to select the best protocol for a specific clinical application. This understanding is important for clinical success, where excellence in esthetics runs parallel to oral
