By pairing two systems for finishing and polishing, the user can reduce the number of steps required to provide high gloss to the composite surface.
Komet Q-Finisher carbides and CompoBrite polishing machines work together to achieve the best esthetic effect, allowing simple and efficient finishing and polishing of composite restorations without the need for multiple dental equipment changes.
Traditionally, the completion of a composite restoration requires three steps, using standard, fine and ultra-fine instruments. However, by pairing the two systems for finishing and polishing, the user can reduce the number of steps required to provide high gloss to the composite surface.
The design of Q-Finisher carbides aims to reduce the composite finishing step to two steps of the traditional three-step process, thereby improving the surface quality after one step. These instruments have an innovative cross-cut design that provides the best surface quality in a single step, and then uses super-finishing equipment for finishing. Carbide also provides a smooth non-cutting tip to ensure gentle finishing without damaging gum tissue.
The CompoBrite polisher offers three complementary shapes that are specifically adapted to the anatomy of the repair area. It features a special bond that spreads the head of the diamond grit. The light pink polisher simplifies minor shape corrections while effectively pre-polishing the composite surface. The use of a pale yellow polisher allows for a high-gloss finish, giving it a natural look, high gloss, and sheen.
1. To complete the lip, use H135Q.FG.014 for best results. The carbides were operated under sufficient cooling conditions (minimum 50 ml/min) at 20,000 rpm. Follow up on the ultra-fine H135UF.FG.014.
2. For pre-polishing, select the appropriately shaped pink polisher from the CompoBrite kit TD2948.
3. In order to create a occlusal anatomy, the bud shape polisher (94025M.RA.070) is ideally equipped with a spacious opening to perfectly surround the cusps.
4. Finish the high-gloss finish with a flaming polisher (94023F.RA.030) at a recommended speed of 6,000 rpm. To prevent excessive heat generation and produce a perfect shine, always work with enough cooling. Proper cooling maximizes efficiency: loose composite particles are washed away by water during polishing.
