How Long Should a Diamond Bur Last?
Several factors influence the longevity of your equipment, and the cutting efficiency of your diamond burs can be affected by a wide variety of situations. Some of these include:
- Hardness of the surface you’re working with
- Sterilization/decontamination procedures
- Storage conditions
- Extensive use
- Cleaning procedures
While it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact time frame for the life of a diamond bur, a study published in the Journal of Advanced Prosthodontics stated that typical diamond burs need to be changed after five teeth preparations. The study also emphasized that a bur should not be used for preparing teeth after try-in procedures of zirconia or metal substructures.
You can’t afford for your diamond burs to lose cutting power after every use. Therefore, it’s vital to invest in high-quality gold diamond burs, utilize one of our diamond bur cleaning discs and follow all maintenance instructions. By maintaining and cleaning your instruments, you help ensure that they will last even longer.
How Diatech makes a difference with gold diamond burs
Diatech’s gold diamond burs are Swiss-engineered and more durable in order to extend the life of the bur without losing efficiency or cutting power.
More than 30 years of innovation go into creating a wide variety of Diatech gold diamond burs, which we consider the “crown jewels” among our outstanding products. They are an indispensable part of any dentist’s toolkit. They make it much easier to remove, adjust or trepan hard ceramic restorations, and these diamonds can easily cut through zirconia and lithium disilicate materials. They also provide a cleaner cut and higher polish than carbides.
Our gold diamond burs are Swiss-engineered to create better performance, durability and precision. We have perfected a proprietary multilevel diamond application, which results in more uniform coverage. This means you’ll have burs that last longer and provide faster, smoother and more comfortable cutting.
The variety of shapes available include:
- Cylinders: regular, round edge, flat end, round end and pointed
- Double cone
- Tapers: flat end, pointed, round edge, round end and round end safe end.
- Inverted Cone
