The results of experimental studies of the effect of radiation parameters of an ytterbium fiber laser on processing efficiency and quality of zirconia-based dental ceramics are presented. Laser operating conditions with optimum characteristics for rapid material removal and obtaining highquality final surfaces of dental structures are determined. The possibility of forming thin-walled ceramic structures (with a minimum wall thickness of 50 μm) using laser milling technology is demonstrated.
