Opalustre slurry is a viscous 6.6% hydrochloric acid slurry that contains silicon carbide microparticles.
This combination provides chemical stain removal along with gentle mechanical abrasion.
OpalCups are latch-type bristle polishing cups, used with the Opalustre to facilitate a more aggressive action and minimal splatter. The OpalCups finishing cups are used for micropolishing the newly treated enamel surface.
Ideal for removing superficial white and brown decalcification stains due to enamel mottling from fluorosis.

Hints & Tips
Did You Know – Opalustre®
Did you know that combining Opalustre® with take-home or in-office whitening treatments can provide optimal results for patients who have fluorosis or demineralisation. Such minor surface stains and texture irregularities can be difficult to treat because too often, whitening treatments are considered as single options. Some clinicians simply abandon any other whitening solutions after seeing limited results with one round of whitening products and the turn to more aggressive treatments, such as porcelain veneers or crowns. This means it’s important for us to educate clinicians on the safe, conservative, and effective use of enamel microabrasion. The positive effects of this procedure allow the tooth the be more resistant to future acid damage and plaque buildup.
How long does the Opalustre procedure take?
This is a one-visit procedure. You’ll notice a difference with the first application and rinse. Opalustre can be reapplied as necessary to achieve the desired results. We recommend a fluoride treatment immediately following the Opalustre procedure.
Do I have to use the OpalCups when using Opalustre?
OpalCups finishing cups are highly recommended when using Opalustre. The autoclavable, latch-type bristle polishing cups help facilitate a more aggressive action and minimize splatter when used with the Opalustre microabrasion technique.
