|Rakesh, Vishal Chhabra, Sonia|
Background: The present study assessed the role of different finishing and polishing procedures on the surface roughness of nanofilled composite. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 60 recently restored composite teeth. Group I had Shofu finishing and polishing kit, group II had Sof-Lex composite finishing and polishing kit and group III had Mylar Strips. Surface roughness was compared. Results: The mean value of surface roughness was 0.84 in group I, 0.78 in group II and 0.52 in group III. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). The mean value of surface roughness in group I was 0.74, in group II was 0.72 and in group III was 0.46. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Author found that maximum smooth surface was found with Mylar strip followed by Sof-Lex followed by Shofu.
