Click here to enlarge image

ET Illustra esthetic composite polishers contain proprietary filler shape technology that creates abrasive particles without aggressive acute angles. A superb high-gloss shine is achieved, and anatomical details are more readily retained on the surface of your restoration through a burnishing or “micro milling” effect. Conventional polisher abrasive particles polish because of their acute cutting angles, resulting in a micro “scratching” effect on the surface of your restoration, which can erase fine anatomical details. ET Illustra polishers achieve an illustrious high gloss while retaining your fine anatomical details.
