A burnisher is a dental instrument used to polish and smooth dental restorations, such as fillings, inlays, and crowns.
Some of the common features of a burnisher include
- Shape Burnishers come in various shapes, such as cone-shaped, hatchet-shaped, and cylindrical, depending on the intended use.
- Material Burnishers are typically made of stainless steel or tungsten carbide, materials that are durable and resistant to wear and corrosion.
- Handle The handle is typically made of plastic or metal and is designed to provide a comfortable grip during use.
- Length Burnishers come in different lengths to allow for easier access to different areas in the mouth.
- Autoclavable Most burnishers are autoclavable, which means they can be sterilized using high-temperature steam to ensure proper hygiene.
- Different head sizes Burnishers are available with different head sizes to accommodate different tooth shapes and sizes.
Surface finish Burnishers may have a polished or matte surface finish to reduce friction and make them more durable.
