DIAODIAO Diamonds interspersed with pearls

DIAO is Komet’s new coarse diamond bur interspersed with pearls.

Use DIAO (pronunced DEE-OW) if you're looking for a diamond that gives you excellent control, precise cutting and long-lasting sharpness.
  • Efficiently removes tooth structure with less pressure. 
  • Decreased loading due to the combination of diamonds and pearls, making it easier to clean and generate less heat.
  • DIAO’s rose gold color makes it easy to identify in your armamentarium.

Use Deep Purple if you're looking for a diamond that gives you effective, rapid and reliable substance removal.
  • Decrease loading due to the large chip spaces.
  • After using the Deep Purple™ diamonds, like the 856XC, for primary preparations, finish with the identically shaped finishing bur, like the 8856.
  • Deep Purple™ has a purple stripe on the shank to indicate extra-coarse.
