Material and methods. Material for polishing for the restoration divided into three groups: 1. Grinding discs — firm TOR VM with three types of grit: coarse, medium, soft and super soft, firm 3M ESPE «Sof-Lex» ultrafine polishing wheels and contoured 2. Silicone heads — polished Enhens, Dentsply, polishers EVE. 3. Polishing brushes Jiffy Regular Brushes, Ultradent; nylon brush prevention. Results. The best way to give effect to the «dry light» was the next sequence of the materials: polished Enhens, Dentsply, ultrafine polishing wheels of orange and yellow 3M ESPE «Sof-Lex», polishing brush Jiffy Regular Brushes, Ultradent. The best effect of polishing brushes obtained by using it in complex with polishing paste. Polishing process with all of the materials was performed with water. Conclusion: When polishing the vestibular surface of incisors and the occlusal surface of molars it is necessary to consider the saving of macrorelief of restoration or the need to remove excess material, without affecting areas of natural tooth tissue, which should be used or exclude certain types of abrasive polishing materials.
