For finishing and polishing of Light cured restorations
1. RE-MEASURE MAGIC MIX PASTE
A. Put a fair amount of Magic Mix Pre-Polisher Paste into a dappen dish from the container to avoid contamination. For each tooth, place a fair amount of paste on a neighboring tooth or on the rubber dam near the tooth for easier access during polishing.
Tip: Gather around 2 full scoops of Magic Mix Paste using The Magic Mix Cup (around the size of a pea total) for 1 whole tooth
B. BEGIN PRE-POLISH
Scoop a small amount into The Magic Mix Cup to begin polishing.
Tip: Do not completely fill the Magic Mix Cup with polisher when you begin polishing because if there is too much in the cup it will spin off the tooth immediately.
C. Use smaller amounts and refresh often.
D. Use pulsing pressure and move around the tooth because Magic Mix can generate heat (don’t put constant pressure in one spot on the tooth for more than 3 seconds at a time.)
2. REFRESH PASTE OFTEN
A. Particles in the paste spin away from the tooth during the pre-polish. Refresh with fresh magic mix in the cup every 2-3 seconds.
Tip: Don’t forget to flange in between the teeth with cup and Magic Mix Paste
3. REDUCE PRESSURE
A. Once rough polishing is done and only the smaller particles remain, proceed to the second phase of this stage: Run the cup and remaining paste lightly over the tooth with the big chunks gone.
A. Rinse off any remaining Magic Mix Paste
5. USE Rockstar POLISHER DRY
A. Start by using the Rockstar Polisher dry with medium pressure. Make sure to blow air on it to keep the restoration from getting too hot, but some heat is good. This step should comprise 2/3 of the time spent on the final polish.
Tip: Using the Rockstar Polisher dry creates light heat friction which creates more rapid finishing.
B. The entirety of the final polishing with the Rockstar Polisher can be done with water, however it will take longer because heat friction won’t be utilized.
6. USE ROCKSTAR POLISHER WET
A. For the remainder of the final polish, use the Rockstar Polisher with water.
Store away from direct sunlight or extreme heat.
