Goal: Co-Cr-Mo prostheses have a high elasticity module and strength of the major connector, and at the same time sufficiently tenacity, thereby breaking is minimized. However it could happened as a result of negligent or violent use of patient, dilapidation or fatigue, improper treatment or disrespect of technological and technical procedures in the preparation of the metal prosthesis. The aim was to show one easy way of repair of broken major connector of metal partial prosthesis. Materials and methods: 49 year old patient came with a request to perform repair of broken major connector of lower metal partial prosthesis. After we took anatomic impression of the patients lower jaw, working model was created. Repair was conducted using dental laser welding machine - Desktop compact. Results: Laser beam welding is a technique in which two or more pieces of material are joined together using a laser beam. The laser beam is a coherent light of a single wave length (monochromatic), low beam divergence and high energy content and will create heat when it strikes a surface. Repair performed this way was fast and easy with excellent final effect. Conclusion: With this case we describe the successful use of the dental laser welding machine when repair of major connector is needed. Key words: Laser welding. Repair, Metal partial prosthesis.
