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’ve been looking at this interesting tool, the GripStrip from Centrix, thinking about using one to remove every last trace of a sweet and sticky afternoon treat from between my teeth. I did brush and floss since to make up for the transgression, but am not convinced bigger guns aren’t required to find every last bit. The GripStrip is an...

    Do magicians still say that when they perform a magic trick? How about dentists? Do you think they’ve ever said “Abracadbra!” while adjusting proximal contacts? Well, probably not…and it would be weird if they did…but I immediately had that image in my head after reading about Strauss Diamond’s Magic Strips. Rather than constantly squeezing to...

Take the Perfect Polish one-step diamond polishers from Itena North America. Made of silicone reinforced with diamond powder, they were designed for use with composites, compomers, and glass...

    In the course of discussing the direction of dentistry with a few of my dentist friends, one particular theme was repeated over and over—conservative dentistry. This approach to oral health care touches just about all procedures and specialties. In one recent conversation, the topic of overcrowding came up. Because of my unfamiliarity with this...

    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...
