Two metal burs sit side-by-side on a grayish-white background. While the burs may appear similar from afar, this close-up shot shows their detailed differences. The light reflects off of each bur, showing their different shapes and patterns.
A variety of different sized and colored dental burs are neatly stored next to other dental equipment, including a mirror. After the dentist diagnoses your dental issue, he or she will choose an appropriate bur before the dental drill comes to life.
