The challenge is to predictably control substance removal to a proper depth while avoiding inadvertent dentin exposure.

Komet USA’s innovative depth-marking instruments offer an ideal solution. The specially designed Komet 868B diamond instruments incorporate depth markers to allow precise, efficient veneer preparation. Available in two sizes to provide cutting depths of 0.3 and 0.4 mm, the tapered preparation burs feature a rounded tip design to maximize safety and predictability in maintaining the integrity of the dentin.

The 868B veener-preparation instrument matches the KOMET868 diamond-tapered chamfer preparation.
