The first time I was introduced to the concept of using a brush for my anterior composites it was certainly a paradigm shift. In dental school, we were taught to use specific instruments with little flexibility. Why should we be limited to the old tools of our trade? My restorative kit includes most traditional composite instruments. However, an extra tool I use for my anterior composites are ceramist brushes & Brush & Sculpt resin from Cosmedent. I primarily use the #3 size brush to help shape facial contours and the #1 brush to apply tints and opaquers due to the finer tip. Brush & Sculpt is a HEMA-free resin that is used to lubricate the brushes and instruments to prevent sticking and long-term discoloration that typical bonding agents exhibit. Once you try these brushes I think you’ll have them in your arsenal always.
