When it comes to dental procedures, precision is paramount. To achieve this precision, choosing the right dental instrument is crucial. Komet® has made the selection process easier through the innovative Diamond Colour-Code System. This system simplifies the identification of diamond bur grits, ensuring that you have the right tool at your fingertips for each procedure.

Understanding Grit and Colour Codes:

In the world of dentistry, different procedures demand varying levels of tooth structure removal. This is where grit comes into play, as it dictates the coarseness of a dental bur. Komet diamond burs feature colour-coded rings that allow you to swiftly determine the grit as soon as you pick up the instrument.

Medium grit diamond burs shine in operative dentistry, offering a versatile option.

Beyond Grit: Application and Shape Matters

Diamond burs are versatile tools, finding application in various dental procedures. They shine in restorations like veneering, crown preparations, bridge work, and the delicate art of adjusting contact points. For those working with zirconia crowns, specialized zirconia burs offer a smooth, precise route through the material.

Shape is another critical factor in choosing the right bur for your task. Round-shaped rotary burs excel at creating access points, while safe-end burs are the choice for flattening and flaring these access points.
