Follow Komet USA's Diamond Color-Code System to ensure you're choosing the right grit for your diamond bur.
Different steps of a dental procedure require different diamond burs with varying grits. The grits can range from extra-coarse to ultra-fine depending on how much tooth structure must be cut away.
Our diamond burs have color-coded rings on each instrument to ensure you can easily tell the grits of the diamond bur as soon as you grab it from the block.
