Som-Zir Guide

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADJUSTMENT AND POLISHING

Adjust using water and air spray to keep the restoration cool and to avoid micro-fractures with a fine grit diamond.  If using air only, use the lightest touch possible when making adjustments.  A football shaped bur is most effective for occlusal and lingual surfaces on anterior teeth; a tapered bur is the ideal choice for buccal and lingual surfaces.

Somer Dental recommends using a Brasseler USA Zirconia adjustment kit.  To order call Brasseler @ 1-800-841-4522 : product order # 225.00.638. For a modified prep kit order # K000017.
