Bur Shapes and Sizes

Flame Shape

Flame burs are used by dentists, dental lab workers, jewelers, and hobbyists. These burs are similar to bud burs but have a longer and more slender shape. Flame burs are available in a wide range of diameters with either a standard length or long neck. They may be single or crosscut with the blades on the head positioned closer or further apart, depending on whether they are intended for finishing or cutting applications. Flame burs may also have long head lengths. These burs are made from various materials, including steel, carbide, and high-speed steel, as well as diamonds and sintered diamonds. Flame shaped abrasive burs are available in materials such as silicon carbide or high-grade corundum. Silicone polishers are also produced in flame shapes.

The selection of the bur is based on the task to be accomplished and what material is being worked with, whether it is natural enamel, acrylic, or metals such as gold and silver. A flame bur is particularly useful in jewelry applications for contouring, shaping, carving, and shaping. Flame burs are also useful for hobbyists and woodcarvers.

Flame shape carbide cutters are available as regular cut, double cut, fine cut, double fine cut, or double extra fine cut burs.
