6.6% Hydrochloric Acid Slurry Containing Silicon Carbide Microparticles
When preforming any abrasion procedure, it is important to have the perfect balance of chemical stain removal and mechanical abrasion. Our 6.6% hydrochloric acid slurry with silicon carbide microparticles has been created to provide you the strength of a chemical stain removal yet gentle scrubbing power of an abrasion slurry.
OpalCups Latch-Type Bristle Polishing Cups
OpalCups finishing cups are great for micropolishing newly treated enamel surfaces. The latch-type bristle polishing cups help facilitate a more aggressive action and minimize splatter when used with the Opalustre microabrasion technique.
To be effective, an abrasion treatment has to be convenient to use and comfortable for the patient. With its efficient syringe delivery and splatter-minimizing cups, Opalustre slurry is extremely easy to use.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Opalustre slurry?
Opalustre chemical and mechanical abrasion slurry is used for the correction of white, brown, or multicolored enamel defects, including fluorosis discoloration.
How does Opalustre abrasion slurry work?
To remove enamel discoloration, simply apply the abrasion mixture to the teeth and slowly buff away discoloration using medium to heavy pressure.
How long does the Opalustre abrasion slurry procedure take?
This is a one-visit procedure. You’ll notice a difference with the first application and rinse. Opalustre slurry can be reapplied as necessary to achieve the desired results. We recommend a fluoride treatment immediately following the Opalustre slurry procedure.
