Abstract

A great deal of clinical evidence and reported data suggest that the burs used to reduce interproximal enamel create furrows and scratches that can lead to carious lesions, periodontal disease, and oversensitivity to extreme temperatures. 1 Studies conducted on fragments of intraoral enamel have shown that the size and particularly the depth of these furrows can have a significant effect on remineralization and thus on the formation of demineralizing lesions.2 The more numerous and deep the lesions, the higher the risk that they will be carious. The present study was intended to assess surface changes in enamel caused by treatment with various stripping and finishing techniques
