The Finishing Touches: Dental Product Roundup
When it comes to finishing off that great restoration, there are a number of finishing and polishing instruments at the clinician’s disposal.
Most dentists want a convenient system that does not require a number of complicated steps to get that great final result. Available in multi- and single-use options, these instrument choices can be customized to deliver the best, most efficient workflow for your restorations.
Product choices can simplify the process of excess removal, contouring and finishing into a single-step, while others feature two-step protocols that allow natural finishes on any ceramic material, including zirconia, lithium disilicate, and porcelain.
