Conclusion

CPS review team referred to this polishing system as old faithful of the group. Most of the evaluators felt that all 4 steps were needed to achieve the full luster and polish to composites. Left no residue on the teeth. Could be used for composite by provisionals. Evaluators would like to see disc with a little sharper edge. Autoclavable Bur Block allows the Dental Assistant to be able to store and replenish the burs very easily when needed.
