Abstract

Aim: The aim of the present study is to compare the different finishing and polishing systems on composite restoration along with direction of finishing and polishing and marginal adaptation of resin based composites.
Materials and Methodology: A total of 80 Molars were divided into 8 groups (n=10). Class V cavities were prepared on the samples with a standard dimension in order to obtain 30 degree bevel on each specimen having a set width of 3mm & a depth of 0.8mm, restoration done with Nanofilled and Microhybird composites. Samples were then analyzed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
Results: The statistical analysis of the mean showed that there is a significant difference between the direction of finishing and polishing of composite restoration on the tooth(P > 0.05).
Conclusion: Polishing of composite restorations in the direction from composite to tooth (C-T) has got better marginal adaptation than tooth to composite (T-C).

Keywords:
