Learn how Q-Finishers® can save you time and money while producing fantastic results. 

The key to a successful composite restoration lies in the final stretch – finishing. Composite finishing isn’t just important for esthetics; a proper composite finishing procedure is also imperative for oral health and maximizing the longevity of the restorations. 

These high stakes make finishing composite restorations meticulous. But what if we told you there was a way to increase the efficiency of your finishing procedures without skimping out on quality? 

Q-Finishers® Allow You to Skip a Step When Finishing Composite Restorations 


Komet’s Q-Finishers® combine composite finishing steps to save you time and money, all while getting a better surface quality. 
  • Step 1: Use Q-Finisher® for your standard and fine finishing
  • Step 2: Use an ultra-fine finishing bur for the final finishing and texture finishing of the composite restoration.
  • Step 3: Polish with Komet’s CompoBrite™ Polishers

“We can basically save 2-3 minutes per restoration by using a Q-Finisher® bur,” said Joshua Austin, DDS.

Q-Finishers® are carbides with a unique crosscut design that combines standard and fine grits. They’re pressure-sensitive, allowing you to complete your standard finishing and fine finishing steps with one bur based on how much pressure is used. 

“For a more aggressive finish, simply press harder on the restoration,” said Dr. Austin. “For a finer finish, just lighten that pressure. No more switching burs in between.”

Q-Finishers® are available in a variety of shapes and sizes so you can find the best bur to fit your composite finishing needs. Looking for a football? We’ve got the H379Q. Prefer a non-cutting tip to use around the gingiva? Try out the FS9Q or FS6Q.

Saving time and money during your composite finishing procedures while still providing perfect results isn’t too good to be true with Q-Finishers®.
