Indications for Use
For correction of superficial (<0.2mm depth) white, brown, or multicolored enamel defects, including fluorosis discoloration, that have not responded to regular take-home bleaching products. Use Opalustre abrasion slurry and OpalCups to quickly remove unsightly enamel decalcification defects that are less than 0.2mm in depth. Abrasion slurries are ideal for superficial white and brown demineralization due to enamel mottling from fluorosis.2 This treatment can be classified under ADA insurance code 9970: enamel microabrasion.
Opalustre Slurry Uses Both Mechanical and Chemical Abrasion

Before and After One Application of Opalustre Abrasion Slurry
Enamel decalcification corrected after one application of Opalustre abrasion slurry using OpalCups bristles and 10:1 gear reduction handpiece with firm pressure.
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.
