|Title:||The effect of six polishing systems on the surface roughness of two packable resin-based composites|
|Abstract:||Purpose : To evaluate the surface roughness of two packable composites after finishing and polishing with six different systems. Materials and Methods: Solitaire and Alert composite samples were prepared and polished with Poli I and Poli II aluminum oxide pastes, Ultralap diamond paste, Enhance finishing points, Politip rubber polishers, fine and extra fine diamond burs, and 30-blade tungsten carbide burs according to the manufacturers' instructions. The polished surfaces were then evaluated with a profilometer and a scanning electron microscope. Results: Solitaire composite resin presented the smoothest surfaces when polished with Poli I and II aluminum oxide pastes, Ultralap diamond paste, Politip finishing points and 30-blade tungsten carbide burs. The smoothest surfaces for Alert composite were evident with the 30-blade tungsten carbide burs.|
