Lingual Bladed Teeth by Levinby Bernard Levin, D.D.S., M. Ed.,Professor Emeritus, USC School of Dentistry
Lingual bladed teeth are manufactured with color-stable, cross-linked acrylic resin and unbreakable surgical stainless steel blades. Crafted with aesthetics in mind, the blades are barely visible. The cross blades that are on the lingual cusps of the maxillary second premolars and molars enable greater masticatory efficiency. Lingual Bladed Teeth are available in Imperial®/Bioform® shades 59, 62, 65, 66, 67 and 81 and bleached 17, 18, 19 and 21 in mold 30M, in 20° and 33 degrees and in mold 28M, in 33 degrees. Also, they are available in Vita® type shades A1, A2, A3, A3.5, A4, B2 and B3, in mold 30M, in 20° and 33° and in mold 28M, in 33°.
