Billed as a new way to put a natural-looking gloss on restorations, 3M ESPE’s Sof-Lex Spiral finishing and polishing wheels provide dentists with a more versatile and easy-to-use alternative to traditional points, cups, discs, and brushes. Here are 5 reasons you might want to incorporate these new polishing wheels into your practice.

Billed as a new way to put a natural-looking gloss on restorations, 3M ESPE’s Sof-Lex Spiral finishing and polishing wheels provide dentists with a more versatile and easy-to-use alternative to traditional points, cups, discs, and brushes. Here are 5 reasons you might want to incorporate these new polishing wheels into your practice.

1. The innovative spiral shape adapts to all tooth surfaces, providing a versatile and simple alternative to traditional points, cups, discs and brushes.

2. Designed with flexible spiral “fingers” that adapt to all anterior and posterior surfaces, these finishing and polishing wheels conform to convex and concave surfaces as they move across the restoration. There is no need to switch shapes during the procedure.

3. With just one shape-and no water-cooling necessary-these finishing and polishing wheels quickly achieve a lifelike luster from any angle.

4. The single-use finishing and polishing wheels have a simple two-step system: The fine Sof-Lex™ Spiral Finishing Wheel removes minor scratches and prepares the surface for polishing and then the superfine Sof-Lex™ Spiral Polishing Wheel gives the restoration a high-gloss, natural-looking surface.

5. With the addition of these spiral finishing and polishing wheels, the Sof-Lex™ Finishing and Polishing family now offers a comprehensive system for contouring, finishing, and high-gloss polishing.
