ABSTRACT
Proper finishing and polishing of tooth restorations enhance the esthetics and the longevity of the restored tooth. The aims of this study were to identify an appropriate polishing system for each esthetic restorative material(Z250, Heliomolar, Dyract AP, Fuji II LC), and to compare the efficiency of polishing systems(Enhance, Sof-Lex, Composite). The control group remains untouched. The results were as follows: 1. There was no significant difference of surface roughness among the materials, while a roughness value of Z250 was the lowest of all. 2. The smoothest surface was produced by Mylar sheet on all materials. The polishing procedures, however, increased a roughness value. 3. The smoothest surfaces were produced by Sof-Lex, and there was significant difference of surface roughness between Sof-Lex and Enhance systems. 4. The smoother surfaces on the control group showed many scratches after the polishing procedures in the SEM findings.
