All you will ever need

11th, March 2020

Andrew Chandrapal, Principal of The Bourne End Dental Practice and Past President of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD), discusses what he likes most about the LM-Arte instruments, available from J&S Davis.

“The LM-Arte instruments have been designed specifically with ergonomics in mind and are geared towards making the most of composite resin during placement onto the tooth surface,” he says. “When I use these instruments, I am constantly reminded of how much thought has gone into the various movements and techniques used to create natural restorations, as well as how the architecture of these instruments allows me to complete the task effectively every time.

“The instruments are light and have a comfortable grip that, when looked after (like anything!), remains to be of service for many years. I have three to four kits that are used daily and they have been in service for several years now.”

The LM-Arte range of instruments includes an array of solutions designed to meet the demands of different types of aesthetic cases. Andrew reflects on his favourite product and how key features help him to consistently achieve high quality composite restorations:

“The green ‘Fissura’ instrument is one of my favourites. One end is perfect for sculpting and separating mamelon formations within the dentine tissues, while the other end is ideal for creating depressions and grooves. This enables cusps and fossae to be determined with ease. I have never used such an accurate instrument.

“Having taught and been involved in composite resin education for over 10 years now, I have used a myriad of kits and instruments. I believe that things need to be simplified to be at their best and this kit has only five instruments. This is ALL you will ever need. I must say that the cost of this kit is also very accessible when compared to other brands who have tried to replicate the products and have just ended up increasing costs or are used as a means of self-promotion. For me, it is simple, effective instruments built on honesty and integrity that work best. I have never heard of any issues from anyone that I have recommended the LM-Arte to – and there have been many!”

LM-Arte instruments are among the comprehensive solutions available from J&S Davis in the UK. The company is well-known for providing a selection of industry-leading products in different areas of dentistry, providing a trusted source of dental solutions for modern clinicians.

“J&S Davis is a company who clearly wishes to promote excellence in dentistry,” Andrew comments. “They have been key in the continuation of my educational company IndigoDent and continue to support us and many others who they believe in. Steve Brown from J&S Davis has seen IndigoDent grow and witnessed its impact on dental professionals out there. This has only been possible with the aid of technical kits such as the LM-Arte instruments.

“IndigoDent education has been formulated to add value and increase the quality and standard of UK dentistry. Using current theory and experience spanning over a collective 40 years, we have perspective on all things composite, including which products work best in different clinical situations. One such example is the LM-Arte kits and they truly are everything you’d ever need for both anterior and posterior direct restorations. When you consider the cost of certain dental items in addition to this, the LM-Arte kits really do represent value for money to both associates and principals alike. For anyone who wants to know more about the IndigoDent educational available, feel free to email”

Having worked with J&S Davis for several years now, Andrew is well-placed to reflect on the customer service delivered by the company:

“Dentists rely on honest trade partners who aim to form professional relationships. This, combined with good products, constructive feedback and excellent after-sales service, is how real trust is established. J&S Davis is an organisation that provides exactly this.

“I have been teaching for over 10 years and together with my teaching partner – Dr Gurvinder Bhirth – the LM-Arte kit is something IndigoDent recommends, uses and believes in. I would recommend nothing else.”
