Paper Abstract

Optimization of restoration techniques employing lasers is dependent on the selection wavelength, cover fluid, pulse duration and method of application. This affects the mechanisms operating during the removal process and hence its efficiency. The risk of unwanted side effects will be more or less controllable depending on the mechanism of removal.
