Composites

With the explosion of polishers embedded with diamond particles, polishing instruments are virtually putting polishing pastes on the endangered list. These products are used to smooth and/or polish composite. Available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and firmnesses, they allow us to create high shines on our restorations without the splatter and mess of pastes.

However, since we have found most (but not all) are more effective used dry rather than wet, it is important not to use heavy pressure when using them in the mouth due to excessive heat generation, which could be deleterious to the restoration as well as the tooth itself. Overly aggressive use can also remove some of the surface characterizations you may have placed in the restoration to give it a more natural appearance. In addition, the effect of rigid instruments on freshly placed and bonded composite has not been properly investigated. Therefore, we urge caution when using a rigid rubber polisher.

Effectiveness Test For polishing facial surfaces, we scored the polishing efficacy of all products in this category on a nano-hybrid composite in the form of a mandibular incisor duplicating our natural tooth control. The results were compared to the gloss of the natural tooth with a naturally glossy enamel surface. The results are listed in each product's commentary.
