  3D surface roughness of glazed e.max CAD. Vertical scale is 220 microns, 10X greater than polished surfaces.  The surface roughness is very evident in the excessive quantity of peaks and valleys.

  3D surface roughness of polished e.max CAD. Vertical scale is 20.9 microns and maximum surface defect is <8 microns. The surface smoothness is very evident in the lack of peaks and valleys.    (DeOliveira, August. "I Like Big Abutments and I Cannot Lie". Dentaltown. August 2014: 46 - 50.
