Looking for a good silver polish

We need to polish some antique silver, but are afraid of ruining it or removing too much metal. We're talking about flatware, cups, serving dishes, and other tableware. Ideally we'd like a method that: damages the silver as little as possible, provides a long-lasting shine/reduces future tarnish rate, won't kill whoever eats with them.

Our experience seems to suggest that with some polishes the tarnish returns more quickly, and that with some polishes silver plate is worn away more quickly. Neither one of those is any good.
