A new colorful twist on a very reliable handpiece, StarDental has introduced its Kaleidoscope slow-speed. This bright, multicolored handpiece is a perfect addition to any operatory. It offers the same features as the “parent” Titan handpieces - 360° swivel connection and the quick-connect feature that is so helpful in my practice. It was named “Best New Product for Women Dentists” at the most recent AAWD meeting. For more information, visit or call your local dental representative.

Using only seven shades, you will experience an incredible esthetic result with amazing translucency and polishability. CeramX has a medium-body handling that allows for ease of placement. The simplified shading system and handling make this the “go to” product for your restorative needs. For more information, visit
