Strauss has added a new porcelain bite adjustment kit to its lineup, called the Magic Touch. This unique kit features eight different shapes and three diamond CeraGloss polishers, selected by dentists to satisfy the most common adjustment needs. The kit contains diamonds with a special new grit which allows fast adjustment similar to a coarse grit, but without risk of chipping the porcelain, and leaves a very fine finish without scratches. The...See more Magic Touch kit has demonstrated excellent results on all types of PFM, ceramic and zirconia crowns and bridges, including the Procad ® and Vita ® ceramic crowns, as well as Lava crowns and bridges. For the first time, dentists are able to trim porcelain as easily as composite. The kit features the following burs: 801/018PF, 801/022PF, 390/018PF, 368/023PF, 862/014PF, 889/010PF, 855/012PF and 878K/021PF. To obtain optimal results, Strauss suggests working with these burs using a light touch, due to their extreme cutting efficiency on porcelain and all hard ceramics.
