It has been suggested to either not have your zirconia crowns glazed by your lab or to sandblast the occlusal surface to be able to evaluate the occlusion better at the seating appointment. Once the occlusion has been established, getting a glaze like finish on your zirconia restoration can be challenging. Using the 2 step zirconia polishers will ensure you achieve the glossy finish she seek. Our composite restorations deserve the same respect. Again, using the 2 step composite polishers with the 48L finishing bur will give you exquisite results, without the use of messy polishing pastes.
