Our porcelain instruments empower you to achieve high quality and efficiency with ease. You won't find these original designs anywhere else.
A Classic! Light and easy to handle, the AT1 Vibrating Instrument incorporates a flexible spatula blade for mixing and rough shaping porcelain, a serrated handle for the vibration condensing needed while building porcelain and discoid tip for measuring small amounts of modifier powders for simple to complex shade modification. *Fabricated in mirror-polished spring steel to avoid wear on vibrating ridges or contamination of porcelain and to assure smooth and easy mixing and application.
For precise, sequential condensing both on and off the model the AT2 Condensing Spatula has a serrated handle for vibration of hemostat held crowns and bridges, and a medium hard plastic mallet head for "tapping condensation" of restorations on the model. The flexible spatula blade is used for mixing and rough shaping porcelain. *Fabricated in mirror-polished spring steel to avoid wear on vibrating ridges or contamination of porcelain and to assure smooth and easy mixing and application.
Super sharp not only at its point, but along two of its triangulate edges as well, the AT3 Carver is perfect for redefinition of anatomical grooves in condensed buildups prior to firing. The finely honed edges are ideal for carving and trimming.
The AT4 Opaque Instrument is used for both mixing and application of opaque with no contamination of metal understructures. The tapered edge enables broad coverage and the fine tip allows fine line application in marginal and interproximal areas, and precise location of modified opaques.
The sharp, ultra thin blade of the steel-handled AT5 Thin Knife is ideal for cutback of body porcelain prior to incisal application, as well as refinement of interproximal contour in bridge buildups. The smooth surface left by the blade reduces potential for porosity in the finished restoration.
This high quality steel hemostat holds restorations firmly and has been specially designed to grip the inside and outside of crown collars without contacting casting margins.
