What is the purpose of dental burs?

In dentistry, a bur is a rotary tool used in a handpiece. It helps in cutting hard tissues such as tooth enamel and bone. Carbide burs are typically used for removing decay, preparing cavities and shaping bone and hard tissues. Diamond burs are ideal for fine contouring, polishing tooth surfaces and adjusting crowns and veneers due to their abrasive surfaces.

What do the colours on dental burs mean?

The colours on dental burs typically indicate the grit size of the bur, which affects its cutting ability. Generally, black or blue indicates a coarse grit suitable for rapid material removal.

Green signifies a medium grit for less aggressive cutting, and red denotes a fine grit used for finishing and polishing. Understanding these colours helps dental professionals choose the right bur for specific tasks.

What dental burs are needed for crown cutting?

Specific dental burs efficiently cut through porcelain, metal or zirconia used in crown fabrication. Diamond burs are commonly used for this purpose because of their hardness and precision.

Coarse-grit diamond burs are ideal for quickly cutting through the crown material, while fine-grit burs are used for finishing touches and smoothing the edges. Using the correct bur for crown cutting is crucial to achieving a precise fit and optimal results.

How many uses does each dental bur have, and can they be reused?

The lifespan of a dental bur varies based on its material, usage and maintenance. Carbide and diamond burs can be reused if properly cleaned, sterilised and stored.

Typically, carbide burs can sustain multiple uses, while diamond burs may wear down quicker due to the degradation of the diamond particles. Always inspect burs for wear or damage before reuse, and replace them if they show signs of deterioration to ensure safe and effective dental treatment.
