Composites have revolutionized the concept in Esthetic Dentistry. To achieve superior esthetics and to meet the patients demand, finishing and polishing of the restorations have now become mandatory. Proper finishing and polishing of composites are important aspects of clinical restorative procedures that enhance both esthetics and the longevity of the restoration. These days the market is flooded with wide variety of finishing and polishing devices, but to choose the best among them puts the clinician in dilemma. The efficacy of various finishing and polishing materials and procedures on contemporary composites is a formidable challenge. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of various finishing and polishing systems on microfilled resin by evaluating the average surface roughness (Ra, mm) using a Profilometer.
