Fluoride Varnishes

GC America
MI Varnish is a 5% sodium fluoride varnish with RECALDENT (CPP-ACP). It is unique compared to all the other fluoride varnishes because it brings bioavailable calcium, phosphate, and fluoride to the tooth surface, releasing high levels of fluoride, and it is well known that fluoride is an important tool in the fight against caries. Working in concert with the sodium fluoride in the MI Varnish is a wiser clinical choice for you and your patients. It is indicated for the treatment of hypersensitive teeth.

It features a unique syringe-to-syringe mixing system, ensuring a consistent, even dose of fluoride is applied to each tooth. The varnish is delivered with new SoftEZ tip, a tip with a unibody design that avoids fiber shedding and tip clogging. The bristles are integrated within the body of the tip, providing a platform for an even coat of varnish. For more information, call (800) 552-5212 or visit ultradent.com.

Vanish 5% Sodium Fluoride White Varnish with tricalcium phosphate is a proprietary formula that contains fluoride, calcium, and phosphate—components naturally found in saliva. It delivers targeted and sustained fluoride and calcium release. After application, Vanish white varnish flows across tooth surfaces and comes in contact with saliva, releasing fluoride and calcium throughout the life of the varnish. It is easy to apply and aids in the relief of hypersensitivity. For more information, call (800) 634-2249 or visit 3mespe.com/vanish.

VOCO America
Profluorid Varnish is the easy and tasteful transparent varnish. Taking only seconds, the new, patented, single-dose delivery system, which includes the brush and the material, makes the application easy. It sets quickly in the presence of saliva, providing immediate and long-lasting results. Patients like the 4 flavors (caramel, mint, cherry, and melon) without the aftertaste of some other brands. The material is free of saccharin, aspartame, and gluten, and its white transparent color makes it invisible on the teeth, leading to high patient acceptance.
