the polishing sequence. At 10,000 RPMs and moderate pressure, it took
approximately 20 seconds to prepare the composite surface for the Final
High Shine polisher. Using the same speed but a lighter touch, the peach
colored Final Polisher required the same amount of time to complete the
polishing sequence. (FIG. 13) While A.S.A.P. Polishers can bring out
a very high luster, this was further enhanced using a small amount of
Enamelize Aluminum Oxide Polishing Paste on a Final Shine Cotton
Polishing Wheel (Clinician's Choice) with a light touch. (FIG. 14) The
resulting restorations on teeth #8 and 9 were met with enthusiastic
approval from the young patient. (FIG. 15)
A complex treatment plan that encompasses multiple modalities can result
in a lengthy treatment timeline. In this case, the long-term solution to
the restoration of a worn anterior dentition to a more natural length and
contour could only be addressed after an additional orthodontic phase.
Even with a thorough understanding and agreement to the process, this
young patient became unsure and disillusioned at a critical point in her
treatment. Fortunately, after reviewing the progress that had been made,
along with the trust that was built up to that point, restored the confidence
to stay the course. It is, therefore, essential to continue to nurture the
professional relationship that fosters cooperation and re-affirmation of
the success of each step on the path that leads to the anticipated esthetic
restorative result. (FIG.16)
FIG. 13
The polishing of the Evanesce A1U composite to a high luster was
completed using the A.S.A.P. 2-step diamond polishing system
(Clinician's Choice) in under 1 minute. The purple Pre-polisher was used
at medium pressure for 15 to 20 seconds before switching over to the
peach Final High Shine Polisher (seen here) for an additional 15-20
seconds under light pressure.
FIG. 14
In this case, the highest possible luster was required to match the
surrounding dentition. A Final Shine Cotton Wheel (Clinician's Choice)
was used with a small amount of Enamelize polishing paste at low
speed and low pressure to attain this.
FIG. 16
The young patient was thrilled with her restorative results. While this
case successfully met the expectations and goals of the treatment
plan, it highlighted the need to maintain awareness of the patient's
motivation and participation as an integral contribution to achieving the
clinical goal.
FIG. 15
The resulting restorations on teeth #8 and 9 successfully reflected the
patient's esthetic expectations.
