ROCK HILL, South Carolina--KOMET USA, a leader in the production of precision rotary instruments for the dental industry, has designed ZR Diamonds specifically to recontour Zirconia restorations in the laboratory producing desirable results.
Zirconia (zirconium oxide) is a popular ceramic material for crowns and bridges. Due to its high resistance, Zirconia is not easy to work on. Although the main cutting and grinding in the lab is carried out by the CAD/CAM system, manual reworking by lab technicians is still necessary to achieve optimum results. Because Zirconia is so strong, it reduced the service life of many instruments quickly.
Extensive clinical testing has shown that ZR Diamonds are superior for recontouring Zirconia. The unique manufacturing process, developed by KOMET, permanently bonds the diamond particles in a dense, packed layer resulting in three grits:
* Coarse grit ZR Diamonds (green/white band) are highly suitable for gross contouring
* Medium grit ZR Diamonds (blue/white band) are less abrasive, making them better suited for smaller adjustments
* Fine grit ZR Diamonds (red/white band) produce a desirable smooth surface
ZR Diamonds are a tool for technicians who work with Zirconia to achieve optimal results in less time and with less effort.
