Composite Attachment Finishing and Removal Diamond Burs (CAFR Burs)

Notify me when this product is available:

These exquisitely fine diamond burs have been specifically engineered to provide rapid and accurate tidying up of excess composite resin after placement of attachments associated with clear alignment therapy and for removal at the end of treatment.

The design and diminutive size allows the user to easily manoeuvre the bur around even the most delicate attachment shapes, ensuring that no residual resin is left on the enamel which may impinge on the seating of the aligner.

The burs are delivered as a set of three:

  • A Blue band bur for rapid reduction and removal of excess resin
  • A Red band bur for initial finishing of the resin and enamel
  • A Yellow band bur for establishing a high polish of the enamel surface

Instructions for Use

Finishing Attachments

After composite resin attachments have been placed and fully cured, identify any excess by visual inspection or by the use of ultraviolet LED.

Remove the blue CAFR bur from the package with tweezers and place into a high speed turbine using finger pressure only. Gently wipe away the excess composite, trying to avoid touching the body of the attachment.

Once the excess has been removed, change to the red bur and polish the attachment-enamel interface.

Then swap to the super-fine yellow band bur and polish the enamel to a high lustre.

Removing attachments

Remove the blue CAFR bur from the package with tweezers and place into a high speed turbine using finger pressure only. Gently wipe away the body of the composite attachment, until you get close to the enamel.

Once the body of the attachment has been removed, change to the red bur and polish the attachment completely away, back to the enamel surface .

Then swap to the super-fine yellow band bur and polish the enamel to a high lustre. Application of a topical fluoride is highly recommended.
