Speaking of polishing, I have heard this technique for polishing several times.

"Try it on posterior composites also. Just shape your final anatomy with a finishing bur. Skip all the polishing steps and apply Surpass (all 3 steps). Looks great!!"
--------------------------------
Any long term followups with this technique? My concern is that as the outer unfilled resin layer comes into contact with the oral environment, it won't make the grade. Will we be left with that outer surface that has only received a prepolish? I know that there is nothing long with surpass, but how about a different unfilled resin? I have not made this jump yet and I likely won't anytime soon. I guess I just like to polish. I'd love to hear your thought.

As I said on the thread, I have been doing this since November and now have seen some recalls that look great. Yes, not long enough but it is a good start. I do believe that both John and Gerry have been doing it for a while now so maybe they can chime in.

I do a minor amount of polishing but that's it. Silicone point.

The resin will fill in the minor defects very nicely and yes they do look really great on recall.

I think Gerry has experience with this as well.

I am loving the way the recalls are looking.
I now have some that are at the 3 year mark...pre-sealing.
There are some that I can't tell and then there are some that I can see some changes.

Currently sealing with G-coat (cause I got a free sample)....love the smell. Rolling Eyes

Surpass really is a great sealer.

Wipe off the oxygen inhibited layer with a cotton pellet and it will look fabulous.

Then watch it on recall!
