SPIRAL DIAMOND BURS: For fast reduction.

(Come in packages of 10 per shape).

Like our “gross reduction” diamonds (above), these diamonds feature a serrated cutting surface and coarse grit that blazes through tooth structure. However, the helical serration won’t leave a ditched surface that requires further finishing. While they’re somewhat more expensive than our standard diamonds, they’ll still save you a bundle over other brands of spiral diamonds.

Flat-End Taper – Coarse: (SD172-017)

Flame – Coarse: (SD199-013)
