  • ​Manufacturer of the industry-leading dental sealant UltraSeal XT plus, Ultradent introduces UltraSeal XT hydro, a hydrophilic pit and fissure sealant

    July 16, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc., introduces UltraSeal XT® hydro, a new sealant with a hydrophilic chemistry. UltraSeal XT hydro incorporates advanced adhesive technology and fluorescent properties to offer exceptional, patient-centered results.

    Based on the proven, award-winning chemistry of UltraSeal XT plus, UltraSeal XT hydro’s hydrophilic properties eliminate the need for the clinician to pretreat the tooth with a drying agent, allowing for faster treatments without compromising quality results. It also fluoresces under a black light, making it easy to check retention at the time of placement and at subsequent visits. UltraSeal XT hydro’s advanced adhesive technology securely bonds to enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage, resulting in fewer patients who need sealants re-placed.

    UltraSeal XT hydro maintains the always-BPA-free chemistry that UltraSeal XT plus has been recognized for. It is available in Natural and Opaque White shades and is easily delivered with a syringe and the Inspiral® Brush tip.

  • Ultradent Introduces Edelweiss

    May 2, 2012 Salt Lake City, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. plans to launch Edelweiss, a uniquely engineered composite veneer system, at the California Dental Association Session in Anaheim this week. Attendees of the session will get a first glimpse at the low-cost, esthetic alternative to custom lab veneers.

    Each composite veneer in the Edelweiss system is laser sintered, combining a high-gloss, uniform surface with a thermally tempered base. This unique manufacturing technology makes Edelweiss veneers harder than other composite veneers, resulting in greater resistance to scratching and wear.

    Ultradent intends Edelweiss as a solution for those seeking a lower-cost alternative to custom lab veneers, unlocking the opportunity for dentists to offer esthetic smiles to more patients. With no need for lab work or separate appointments for consultations, impressions, temporary seatings and permanent restorations, Edelweiss allows patients to get a natural-looking, long-lasting smile in just one appointment. Edelweiss composite veneers are available in an assortment of sizes, requiring minimal adaptation and tooth preparation.

    Ultradent will showcase Edelweiss at the CDA Annual Session along with the Triodent V3 system and the VALO Cordless curing light. For more information, follow our tweets (#CDAUltradent) or stop by our booth (#450).

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Expands its Line of Innovative Cements

    February 21, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. will introduce three new cements at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting this week. UltraCem™ Resin-Reinforced Glass Ionomer, PermaShade™ LC and UltraTemp REZ™ complete Ultradent’s current line of temporary and permanent cements.

    UltraCem™ Resin-Reinforced Glass Ionomer is the first liquid-powder RRGI cement to be mixed and delivered conveniently in a syringe. UltraCem offers the best of both worlds: efficient delivery and unsurpassed performance. Its advanced chemistry boasts the highest bond strengths in its category, while its unique SpeedMix™ syringe ensures the ultimate luting convenience. UltraCem is used for luting indirect restorations made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin to natural teeth and cementation of orthodontic bands to enamel.

    The most recent addition is PermaShade™ LC, a light-cured luting resin used exclusively for cementing veneers. With enduring color stability and low shrinkage, PermaShade LC is ideal for creating a long-lasting, esthetic smile. As with other Ultradent innovations, its ergonomic contra-angle syringe makes luting delicate veneers more convenient than standard delivery methods. And finally, Ultradent has added UltraTemp REZ™ for cementing of temporary crowns, onlays, and small temporary fillings. The cement is strong enough to withstand normal biting and chewing forces but can easily be removed.

    For more information on any of Ultradent’s new cements, please visit www.ultradent.com or call our customer service at 1-800-552-5512.

    To follow both company and product announcements, find us on facebook (www.facebook.com/ultradent) or follow us on Twitter (#ultradent).
