The present paper is devoted to the analysis of optical properties of hard tooth tissues in a wide range of light intensities. The main features of light reflection from enamel surface and light propagation in enamel and dentin are considered. The possibility of observation of various nonlinear effects in dental tissues are analyzed. The mechanisms of laser destruction of enamel and dentin are classified and the models of correspondent processes are considered.
