There is an article on lsers and Cerec by Fasbinder in the current Compendium. The soft-tissue laser is used for gingival retraction and dryness of field.

http://www.compendiumlive.com/course.php?id=325 (Registration required)

Figs. 3 and 4 depict the tissue following the use of the laser.

The finished Cerec crown is shown in Figs. 7 and 8.

This is what I notice;

1. The tissue height has been altered such that it is noticeably lower than the crown margin.

2. The Cerec crown is much whiter than the surounding teeth.

As I do not have a soft tissue laser I cannot say whether this is characteristic of this laser usage but it does not satisfy me. I also do not feel that this is a terribly good representation of Cerec capabilities.
