The BK-Medent Porcelain Carving Tool is a simple, yet very unique dual ended instrument. On one end it has a serrated needle-type tip that is great for tasks like carving anatomy or adjusting occlusal shapes. On the other end is is a curved, spoon-like design that is ideal for shaping porcelain or smoothing out recently carved areas for a clean, finished result.
Another great use that technicians have found for the Porcelain Carving Tool is using the thin, needle-type tip to apply stains. The tip is great for reaching into deep fissures, and it allows you to place very small amounts of stain in a precise manner. This is great for full contour all-ceramic cases where it can be harder to place the stains with a brush.
