Rembrandt Sapphire is a broad-spectrum, xenon-power arc light designed for curing and bleaching. Time settings and display are located both on the base unit and on the handpiece. The pistol-grip handpiece is lightweight and ergonomically designed. A rolling stand with an arm extension is available to hold the light and handpiece while performing bleaching procedures. Dual-arch bleaching is accomplished by replacing the curing probe with the Rembrandt Whitening Crystal acrylic attachment. The crystal provides even distribution of light over the entire arch, producing very good whitening results.

Go Between Cleaners are cylindrical brushes for cleaning interproximal spaces. The pocket-sized brush contains bristles coated with chlorhexidine and includes a plastic cover. Patients who evaluated the brushes found them to be soft, flexible, and comfortable on soft tissue. Dentists found them to be particularly useful for periodontal and orthodontic patients and a good alternative for patients who cannot or will not floss.

EXAMIX NDS is a hydrophilic, addition silicone impression material for all impression needs, including crown and bridge and removable prosthetic cases. The material is supplied in automix cartridges in an array of viscosities. A hand-mixed putty, EXAFLEX, is also available. EXAMIX NDS was highly rated for its ease of use and accuracy. The color contrast between viscosities allows good visibility of the prepared margins. Working and setting times are sufficient for multiple preparations; however, when faster setting is desired for single-unit cases, EXAFAST NDS is recommended.
