What is the different between an over mount and under mount cutout.

Over mount cutouts do not need to be polished and the sink sits on top of the stone. Under mount cutouts need to be polished for a finished look and are sealed underneath the stone. Under mount provides a cleaner look and makes it easier to clean your countertops.
