Abstract: Five composite filling materials were finished using six finishing procedures currently in clinical use. The average roughness produced by each procedure was measured by means of a Surfanalyzer with four replications for each procedure on each of the five materials. Statistical analysis indicated that finishing with silicon carbide disks produced the smoothest surfaces. Acceptable surfaces were obtained with stones or with burs. Use of an alumina paste after a green stone-white Arkansas sequence did not produc…
