For dental technicians, dental lab porcelain modelling brushes are an essential tool in this process, as they are specifically designed to help create and shape dental porcelain restorations such as crowns, and bridges.
Types of Dental Lab Porcelain Brushes
1- Natural hair brush
made from the hair of animals such as hog bristle or sable, are highly suitable for shaping and smoothing delicate porcelain restorations. Their soft and flexible bristles provide a smooth and precise application of porcelain modelling compound.
However, they tend to be more costly compared to synthetic hair brushes and may require more frequent replacement due to a higher tendency to shed.
2- Synthetic hair brush
made from man-made materials such as nylon or taklon, offer affordability and durability. They also come with a lower tendency to shed, and are available in a range of stiffness to suit different types of restorations.
However, they may not provide the same level of softness and flexibility as natural hair brushes, making them less suitable for delicate restorations. Additionally, they may not hold as much liquid and porcelain modelling compound, which could make the application of the material less precise.
Using Dental Lab Porcelain Brushes
- Wet the brush and apply a small amount of porcelain modelling compound to it.
- Gently apply, shape and smooth the porcelain restoration, and take care not to apply too much pressure.
Caring for Dental Lab Porcelain Brushes
- Rinse the brush thoroughly with water after each use.
- Allow the brush to air dry.
- Do not share your brush with others.
- Replace the brush every three to four months or as soon as the bristles begin to show signs of wear.
