To achieve the benefits that composite restorations can provide, it is incumbent on dentists to understand the importance of proper finishing and polishing techniques and how to incorporate them appropriately into everyday practice. A smooth surface finish is clinically necessary because the presence of surface irregularities from poor finishing and polishing can lead to staining, plaque retention, gingival irritation, recurrent caries, abrasiveness, wear kinetics, and tactile perception by the… Expand
Effect of Finishing and Polishing on Surface Propeties
Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of finishing and polishing (F/P) techniques on resin restorative materials’ surface roughness and microhardness. Materials and methods: AExpand
Marginal quality of ceramic inlays after three different instrumental cavity preparation methods of the proximal boxes
TLDR
Mod-cavity proximal box finishing with SI or USI resulted in a higher surface roughness than the use of RI, which could be an alternative instrumental method to conventional RI methods with a lower risk of iatrogenic damage of the adjacent teeth. Expand
The effect of carbonated beverage to the discoloration of polished and unpolished nanohybrid composite resin
Nanohybrid resin composite is one of the restorative dental materials that has good aesthetic value and smooth surface. However, resin composite can be discolored due to consuming foods andExpand
Wear Behavior of Ceramic CAD/CAM Crowns and Natural Antagonists
TLDR
CAD/CAM crowns from various restorative materials and natural antagonists are evaluated, finding the LU crowns are the most natural antagonist-friendly; these were the most susceptible to vertical and volume loss. Expand

TLDR
For composite restorations to mimic natural tooth structure, the clinician must have a comprehensive understanding of the material science and techniques involved in direct bonding procedures. Expand
Surface roughness of new microhybrid resin-based composites.
TLDR
The Astrobrush technique caused the greatest roughness on all RBC specimens, and the smoothest surface was produced with a carbide bur followed by aluminum oxide disks, Astropol technique and Enhance technique. Expand
Resin composite polishing--filling the gaps.
TLDR
These brushes can be considered to be key products to polish concave surfaces, anatomically shaped occlusal surfaces, and textured surfaces without damaging the surface characteristics. Expand

TLDR
The negative control, which consisted of surfacing the composite resins with a coarse diamond, produced the greatest amount of marginal gaps, and it is interesting to note that coarse finishing instruments can also have a negative effect on the surface of the restoration. Expand
Effect of finishing instrumentation on the marginal integrity of resin-based composite restorations.
TLDR
Fine, extra-fine and ultra-fine finishing diamonds used to finish composite restorations generated better marginal integrity when compared with carbides and regular-grit diamonds, but the differences were not always statistically significant. Expand
Influence of polishing duration on surface roughness of resin composites.
TLDR
Although the time required for polishing was longer, the surface finish produced by multiple-step polishing systems was superior to that obtained with one-stepPolishing systems. Expand
