How should I use Spotit?
Spotit is a colored marker that indicates exactly where to adjust contacts before the final cementation of C&B works. Put the C&B work in place. Press carefully. Pass Spotit through the hard contact one time only. Remove the C&B work and find the exact spot where you adjust the contact. Repeat if necessary. Do the final cementation.
