Diamond Polishing Cups and Points
1Use Couture Polishers on composite restorations after pre-polishing with rotary diamond instruments (15 μm yellow).
2Medium (green) Polishers enable easy shaping and well prepared surfaces.
3UltraFine (blue) Polishers enable final, ultra-high gloss surfaces, bringing out the maximum esthetics of any composite material.
4Use copious water spray during the entire procedure (minimum 50 mL/min).
5Apply light force to instruments, not exceeding 0.5 lbs (2N) of pressure.
6Use slow speeds between 8,000 and 20,000 rpm maximum (note: higher speeds will cause more rapid deterioration of Polisher and rougher surfaces).

1Use Couture Diamond Polishing Brush after pre-polishing with rotary diamond instruments (15μm yellow).
2Use Couture Diamond Polishing Brush on the dental surface starting with hard filaments for 15 seconds under light pressure (0.5 LBS/2 N) and low speed (5000 RPM).
3Subsequently add water spray for few seconds.
4The stiffness of the filaments gradually change to ultra soft. Adjust spray if there is too much water.
5Continue polishing at low speed for about 15 seconds more without pressure, with only light wiping movements to achieve final high gloss.
6Apply Couture Diamond Polishing Brush without paste.
7Single use (due to water and debris absorption, deformation).
