The depostition of diamond films using VFCVD onto tungsten carbide dental burs has been described. To enchance nucleation, growth and adhesion of the diamond substrate was pre-treated using a Murakami etch.The structure and morphology of the diamond coated bursa and uncoated burs have been compared.
