Finishing & Polishing CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Effective finishing/polishing enhances dental esthetics while maximizing restoration strength, maintaining compatibility of occlusal relations and preventing biofilm/plaque retention.

 

Diamond finishing burs produce clean cuts and a high polish via grinding when material removal is not a concern, with finer grits producing a higher polish/finish. Carbide burs employ cutting to chip away substrate with greater precision than that achieved with grinding, and help conserve natural tooth structure by differentiating between soft composite and hard enamel. Specialized carbide burs enable trimming and finishing of tooth-colored plastic filling materials.

 

Many polishing systems employ disks, points and cups with rubber impregnated with diamonds, aluminum oxide or aluminum oxide-silicone-carbide. Other systems feature abrasive-coated polishing discs.

 

Ceramic polishers frequently incorporate embedded aluminum oxide, diamond-impregnated polishing brushes and felt discs for use after adjustments are made to fired porcelain. Also available are pastes that produce an ultra-high-shine polish with polishing cups, silicone polishers, and even rotary carbide burs.

 

An increasing trend toward finishing/polishing systems that reduce the number of required steps includes carbide burs that produce polishing-ready surfaces and silicone polishers that create a glossy shine on all tooth-colored direct restorative materials. These reusable instruments vary the amount of material removed according to the pressure applied, eliminating the need to change instruments.

    I know there are some fisherman/woman dentists out there (I’ve met a few!). It’s a gorgeous afternoon, the sun is warming up the winter landscape, and I’m already thinking about fishing in just a few months from now. That’s what I like about the Minnow Polishers logo—the little fish that evokes the Microcopy product line’s nickname: “The...

    There’s always that one person who ruins it for the rest of us. The football team that lets air out of the ball to gain an advantage. The passenger in a car accident who fakes an injury to get a settlement. A college student who cheats on an exam. Even a dentist who wipes off ‘single-use’ burs and uses them again. I’m sure that nearly every...

    Something to add to my always expanding dental knowledge: restorations that are not properly adjusted and polished can develop microfractures and scratch the opposing natural teeth. And this is a particular challenge with zirconia, lithium disilicate, and porcelain restorations because they are extremely hard. You want that kind of toughness to...
