Contemporary Product Solutions Awards Heraeus’ Venus White Ultra Its Highest Rating

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Heraeus Kulzer, LLC, the worldwide leader in dental esthetics, announced that its Venus White Ultra pre-filled disposable whitening trays received a 5-Diamond rating, the highest rating possible, from Contemporary Product Solutions. The digital magazine publishes expert clinical evaluations of dental products and equipment using a total team perspective.

The evaluators noted that the Venus White Ultra pre-filled disposable whitening trays covered more of the teeth than competitive trays, yet received no complaints about patient sensitivity. They also concluded that the Venus White trays, which are priced lower than custom take-home trays, are ideal for use by teenagers who might be prone to noncompliance.

Results of the complete survey can be found online here. Highlights of the evaluation are listed below:

Venus White Ultra 11.2% is hydrogen peroxide gel that consists of seven upper and seven lower pre-filled, disposable whitening trays.

Fit of Trays
The trays are designed to mold securely around each tooth for maximum comfort, with upper and lower trays sized differently for best fit.

Venus White Ultra comes in a white box that contains seven sets of upper and lower trays, enough for seven days of treatment.

All the evaluators were able to follow manufacturer’s directions for this product.

The Venus White Ultra whitening trays are pre-filled with a minty flavored gel that all evaluators said tasted great.

The Venus White Ultra patients had no complaints of sensitivity.

Evaluation Team Feedback
The CPS team felt the Venus White Ultra is a great bleach choice for teenagers. It covers more of the teeth compared to some of the other pre-filled bleaching systems. Most of the patients evaluated were ages 14 to 22. Almost all felt they could use two kits to achieve best results. Most consultants claimed that the trays stayed put when placed. Most of the evaluators found Venus White Ultra to be a great option for teens, without the investment in home trays, especially if there is a concern with patient compliance.
