Diamond is an ideal material for numerous applications such as dental burs and drills due to its unique combination of chemical, mechanical and thermal properties. The most widely used method of growth diamond is chemical vapor deposition (CVD) namely hot filament and micro­ wave plasma processes. The use of vertical filament chemical vapor deposition (VFCVD) process has been developed to uniformly coat complex shaped tools and is described in detail. The growth characteristics and film properties are described for use on dental burs and drills.
