FAQs

Proper finishing and polishing is important for several reasons, such as:

  • It ensures the oral health and longevity of restorations. A smooth surface reduces the likelihood of adhesion, which means plaque is less likely to accumulate on a polished surface.  This leads to healthier, long-lasting restorations.
  • A smooth tooth surface minimizes gingival irritation and surface discoloration.  A polished tooth is more biologically compatible with the gingival tissue, so the health of the gingival tissue is maintained.
  • Proper contouring, finishing, and polishing will heighten the marginal integrity of the restoration.  
  • Clinicians can protentially increase the longevity of their Class II restorations with proper finishing technique.
  • Finishing and polishing enhances patient comfort and satisfaction, and patients greatly appreciate the natural beauty and health benefits realized from a properly polished restoration.

A smooth composite surface is more plaque and stain resistant, and is a necessary step to achieving composite longevity and patient satisfaction. Surface roughness testing proves that the composite surface is smoother when Enhance Finishers are used after gross contouring with a bur. And it achieves both intermediate and final finishing in a single step - the pressure applied controls the aggressiveness: more pressure for an aggressive initial finish; less pressure to smooth the surface. As pressure is applied, abrasive particles disengage from the Enhance cup, disc, or point to effectively buff the surface of the restoration. The result is a smooth, contoured surface in less steps.
