  1. kp said

    these are the former CEI (cutting edge instruments) burs. very good solid “harmonically tuned” bur.
    Coltene Whaledent recently purchased CEI so that they could improve their carbide line.

  2. I would love to hear if anyone has experience with them compared to SS white, Midwest, or Brasseler. They claim to cut 4x faster than the competition in the same price range as well.
