The concept of finishing and polishing dental restorations to achieve a smooth surface dates back as far as Pierre Fauchard, a French physician, known as the “father of modern dentistry”. He wrote about oral anatomy and replacing missing teeth in the 1700’s. The technological advances in dental materials coupled with consumer demand for more natural-looking restorations has resulted in an ever-increasing array of abrasive wheels, cups, points, strips, carbides, discs, diamonds, and pastes to finish restorative materials. The result of all this choice is often a complicated procedure that takes longer than the prep and impression. The challenge for the clinician is finding cost effective polishers and abrasives that are versatile and easy to use.
