There is nothing better than natural tooth structure and thankfully with today’s restorative materials we can be incredibly conservative and preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible. The challenging part is to precisely prepare tooth structure so we can blend conservation with appropriate material thickness. To help accomplish this, one of my favorite products by Komet is the PrepMarkers Starter Set
. This set has calibrated burs ranging from 0.5 mm to 2.0 mm to guide precise preparation. I personally find myself using the 1.0 mm PrepMarker the most. This allows me to place bonded ceramic partial coverage preparations with minimal tooth reduction.
