Couture Diamond Cups and Points with Applied Diamond Technology (ADT) produce a superior gloss effect with maximum surface brilliance. Highly-filled with fine diamond abrasives to create an ultra-smooth surface that delivers enhanced esthetics, while limiting the adherence of plaque and bacteria and the subsequent development of gingivitis and periodontal disease. ADT has the additional effect of enhancing the performance of the polishers to enable you to achieve your final polish in only two steps, compared to other systems that require 3 or 4 steps.
- Unique silicone matrix filled 50% by weight with diamond particles to produce superior gloss and smoothness
- Only 2 grits needed:
- Medium Grit (60 μm avg. particle size) for initial refining
- UltraFine Grit (5 μm avg. particle size) for final, high-gloss polish
- Extremely narrow particle size distribution range for consistent, uniform surface finishes
- Unique design gives structural integrity
- Autoclavable for multiple uses
- Use copious water spray to minimize friction heat build up
- Apply feather-light pressure to instruments
- Use slow speeds between 8,000 and 20,000 RPMs maximum
Our timesaving, convenient two-step polishing system consists of the following:
How to use this product:
- Use Couture Polishers on composite restorations after pre-polishing with rotary diamond instruments (15 μm yellow).
- Medium (green) Polishers enable easy shaping and well prepared surfaces.
- UltraFine (blue) Polishers enable final, ultra-high gloss surfaces, bringing out the maximum esthetics of any composite material.
- Use copious water spray during the entire procedure (minimum 50 mL/min).
- Apply light force to instruments, not exceeding 0.5 lbs (2N) of pressure.
- Use slow speeds between 8,000 and 20,000 rpm maximum (note: higher speeds will cause more rapid deterioration of Polisher and rougher surfaces).
Use copious water spray during entire procedure. Apply light force to instruments, not exceeding 0.5 lbs (2N) of pressure. Use these polishers at low-speeds (between 8,000 and 20,000 rpm maximum) in handpieces.
