Topex® Xyli-White™ Tooth Whitening System
Sultan Dental Products introduces Topex® Xyli-White™ Tooth Whitening System, the first custom-fit, dentist-supervised, tooth-whitening system that protects teeth with the power of Xylitol, a proven cavity fighter. Xylitol, also a natural sweetener, significantly reduces tooth decay by inhibiting the growth of plaque bacteria.

Topex® Xyli-White™ Tooth Whitening System's 15% Carbamide Peroxide Formula is gentle and effective, therefore patients can use it as little as one hour a day or wear it overnight for faster results. Each application delivered to the patient's teeth through a custom-made vacuum-formed application by their dentist, enters the enamel of discolored teeth. Discolored molecules are then released, revealing a whiter, brighter, more attractive smile.

Opalescence Xtra Boost
In 1997, Ultradent Products Inc. radically changed professional tooth whitening with its introduction of Opalescence Xtra 35%, said to be the most effective in-office "power bleach" on the market four years running ... this year history will repeat itself.

While other manufacturers are still zooming to catch up, Ultradent has boosted in-office tooth whitening to the next level with the introduction of Opalescence Xtra Boost, a chemically activated, 38% hydrogen peroxide, neutral (pH 7) power bleach that is even stronger and more effective than original Opalescence Xtra.

Because Opalescence Xtra Boost is chemically activated, no expensive lights or lasers are needed to achieve rapid whitening results. It can be used for bleaching vital and nonvital teeth, including intracoronal bleaching. Opalescence Xtra Boost requires refrigeration, and has an 18-month shelf life. After mixing, the gel will maintain efficacy for one month when properly refrigerated.
