Always Choosing The Best Tools for the Best Results
After selecting the material for your milling job, a number of questions typically arise: What tools should I use for zirconia, wax, PMMA, or tougher materials like composite resins and lithium silicates? How many units can I mill before those tools need to be replaced? Are all tools created equal and will they work with my current mill? lets focus specifically on Vsmile milling series.
Carbide Coating Burs(No Coating/PMMA)
Work quite well with PMMA, wax and other soft materials.
Naturally, when deciding on a milling tool, the tendency is to lean toward a more affordable option, such as a carbide bur. Carbide tools actually work quite well with PMMA, wax and other soft materials, while still providing bur longevity. However, cleaning your carbide tools on a regular basis is a must to ensure optimum performance. Because milled wax and PMMA materials can potentially stick to the flutes upon cooling, it’s important to remove any remaining materials from the bur tip after each job. Of course, if you’re working with a material like zirconia using a carbide tool, be aware that doing so is likely to shorten the tool’s lifespan.
Diamond Coating Burs(DC)
Produce high-quality prosthetics with superb margin lines and also extend tool longevity.
DIAMOND IS A LAB TECHNICIAN’S BEST FRIEND
So, if a carbide bur isn’t the best choice for milling zirconia, what type of tool is right for the job? We recommend a diamond tool. Using a diamond tool will not only help produce high-quality crowns, bridges, and inlays with superb margin lines, it will extend tool longevity as well.
Diamond-like Carbon Burs(DLC)
Super-high value with competitive price
A friend of mine uses diamond coating milling burs for everything, and he asks me a reason to stop using in recently. I said the only matter is the price, that's hybrid material burs can perfect matched your requirement for milling zirconia with a pretty low cost. for soft material milling?it is a piece of cake.
Composite Resins, Hybrid Ceramics
Vsmile offers a set of hybrid tools (Emax/Metal)that’s perfect for the assignment.
