SEALANT - Ultradent Products

UltraSeal XT hydro is the next evolution in Ultradent’s line of dental sealants with hydrophilic chemistry to eliminate the need to pretreat the tooth with a drying agent, allowing for faster treatments.

Its advanced adhesive technology allows UltraSeal XT hydro to securely bond to enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage.

COMPOSITE WARMING KIT - Vista Dental Products

Structur 3 has a natural-looking fluorescence with outstanding color stability and an intraoral set time of 45 sec.
