Esthetic Contouring Instruments are specifically designed to properly manipulate and contour composite material, to create highly detailed anterior composite restorations.
Esthetic Contouring Instruments
- Gold Grip: features convex paddle to spread composite across the facial plane for diastemas, Class IV and V restorations. Long flat, thin and flexible blade makes interproximal composite placement a breeze.
- Blue Grip: bladed end allows trimming of excess composite and to cut grooves into the material to create the illusion of enamel cracks. With its opposing blade, ripples can be created prior to cutting for better light reflection.
The Gold and Yellow instruments’ permanent end is a sturdy, curved spoon shape, the back of which is ideal for shaping the curves of the lingual concavities. The front side is used to form the curvature at gum line or interproximal on the lingual side, and may also be used to carry material to the preparation.
The replaceable (black tip) end of the Gold and Yellow Grip instruments is spatula shaped and has been designed for use on the facial surfaces of maxillary incisors and the buccal of posterior teeth, or where there is a large and rounded surface. Excellent for adapting a gum line margin, it is also ideal for forming the gentle curve toward the interproximal and tooth’s edge for esthetic highlighting.
