The SS White needle shape burs are excellent for the
contouring and finishing of occlusal margins, facial surfaces and cavosurface margins.
Thirty bladed burs will eliminate most surface striations
and are recommended to be used prior to abrasive polishing instruments. These
instruments are designed to reduce the “shiny dull” phenomenon and save
additional polishing time. Designated by the 9000 series #.
Ideal for final surface refinement and satin polishing.
White’s unique spiral design allows blades to continually remain in contact
with the cutting surface, resulting in a smoother finish with less vibration.
A smoother, more aesthetically pleasing surface can be achieved
with carbide finishing burs as opposed to diamonds for most restorative
materials. Carbide burs should be used to trim and finish macrofilled
composites and hybrid composites.
Grinding & polishing diamonds should be used to trim and
finish microfilled composites. Coarse grinding tools
leave behind striations; fine and extra fine diamonds are suitable for
