Polishing Tips

3 easy steps to polish your crown

Your crown will be coming to you directly from the milling machine. There will be a couple support nubs that will need smoothing and blending into the tooth contour and the entire outer surface will need a high shine with a bristle brush and some polishing compound. Always use slow speeds and light pressure with the hand piece, and a slight circular motion when in contact with the crown so as not to establish grooves. In just a couple of minutes your crown will look like the one shown here.
