Abstract:  
Composites have revolutionized the concept in asthetic dentistry. Proper finishing and polishing of composites are important aspects of clinical restorative procedures that enhance both asthetics and the longevity of the restoration. A number of finishing and polishing devices are available, but to decide the efficacy of various materials is still a challenge to the dentists or clinicians. Hence the study was undertaken   to determine the effectiveness of two polishing systems  Sof-Lex and PoGo on Filtek Z350  by evaluating surface roughness using a Profilometer. The study concluded that Sof-Lex is a better polishing system than PoGo
