Restorative Carbides | Cavity Preparation, Crown & Bridge, Depth Cutters

The #330 and #245 burs are the most popular composite restoration bur as they produce nicely rounded internal line angles (no sharp corners) and are .8mm in diameter at the widest part of the cutting head. The H24 or #330MW is a version of the #330 where the cutting length is 2.0 mm

which can also be used to achieve a 2 mm incisal depth cut.

ZR-Diamonds have been the premier choice for working with modern high-strength ceramics since their introduction into the dental marketplace. Unmatched in versatility and performance, ZR-Diamonds address these real, everyday challenges by providing superior results quickly and with minimal effort.

Q-Finishers | Working on Fillings

Developed with an innovative cutting design, Q-Finishers allow you to finish composite restorations in just two steps. Additionally, the pressure-sensitive design allows for safe and efficient removal of adhesives in Orthodontic debonding procedures.



• Time-saving (fewer burs required)

• Special cross-cut flute design that effectively

removes, adjusts and polishes all composite restorations

• Cost savings – only two instruments are needed
