Pointed objects such as forceps or levers can quickly damage the cuspidor at the dentist's chair. Replacement is often not only expensive, but also time-consuming. There is another way - thanks to the the Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit from Kulzer Technik, the damaged area can be repaired easily and quickly by yourself. How does it work? The dentist Dr Stephanie Frisch has tried it out and shows how a ceramic basin can be repaired in the practice in no time at all.
The dentist knows from her own experience that the mouthwash basins in the practice can quickly become damaged because sharp-edged and heavy equipment is used during dental treatment. Particularly in the practice, which has to be a hygienically impeccable place, a defect does not make a good impression, as Dr Stephanie Frisch knows: "A defect in the cuspidor immediately catches the eye of patients when they rinse around it and that does something to their perception of hygiene - the practice can otherwise be so clean." With the Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit from Kulzer Technik, which has been specially designed for in-house use, such a spot in the basin or any other ceramic can be quickly remedied. "It is a problem solution that did not exist before and saves time and money - especially for dentists it is easy to use because they are familiar with the handling of the accessories," confirms Dr Stephanie Frisch after her experience with the Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit.
A defect in the cuspidor is annoying and does not make a good impression on patients, Stephanie Frisch knows.
But with the Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit from Kulzer Technik, a defect is quickly repaired.
The Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit contains everything you need for the repair: the two most common whites for ceramics with selection card, a primer for secure adhesion, filling compound for deeper defects as well as curing lamp and other accessories for processing.
Lay out the accessories ready to hand on a clean surface.
First clean the damaged area with the alcohol cloth and remove the dust.
Apply the primer so that the repair paste adheres securely afterwards.
Use the colour selection card to choose the right shade of white for the ceramic.
Prepare the repair paste and attach the cannula.
Carefully apply the paste to the hole and put in enough material to create a small bulge.
Place the foil strip on the drop.
... Place the blue light LED lamp over it (if necessary, hold it a little) and let the material cure for at least 5 minutes. Then remove the lamp and the foil.
Now sand the area that is still slightly raised. First use the coarser sandpaper with a grit of 1200: Put a drop of water on the spot and sand.
Repeat the step with the finer sandpaper until no bulge can be felt when you run your finger over it.
After sanding, clean the surface again with the cloth and then apply a drop of the polish, which is then worked in with the cloth in circular movements.
A small defect in the cuspidor is repaired in only about 15 minutes.
The Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit was originally developed for industrial customers, but has since been further developed for consumers to use on their own, because Product Manager Daniel Klingberg from Kulzer Technik knows: "Everyone has had a small defect on some washbasin or sanitary object. It's just an everyday problem that everyone knows well. That's why we wanted to make it available to a broader customer base and end users.
The Kerasys Ceramic Repair Kit contains all the materials for the repair, so you can get started straight away. The kit contains the two most common shades of white and a colour-fast selection card to choose the right shade for the ceramic. A primer ensures a long-lasting and durable repair. For deeper defects, the kit also includes a filler. Also included: Curing lamp, sandpaper, polish and cleaning cloth.
