Star White
Click here to enlarge image
Temrex Corporation recently launched a new tooth-whitening system. The Star WhiteTM Dental Whitening Ensemble has a unique interactive patient-compliance system. One of the most challenging aspects of tooth whitening is not creating a need for the service, but actually having the patient wear the bleaching trays consistently.The dentist begins the whitening program in the office, forming custom trays and giving the patient a kit of eight syringes of Star WhiteTM, a formula containing 16 percent carbamide peroxide. Besides the syringes and custom trays, the Dental Whitening Ensemble, which the patient takes home, contains a tray retainer, instructions, a dental color chart and an envelope of stars to mark daily progress. Involving the patient in the Star WhiteTM compliance program has proven to be effective.

The Interactive Patient Compliance System is a tool that not only motivates the patient to daily compliance, but it also allows communication between the patient and the office via the telephone. This can help reduce nonrevenue-producing personal visits to the office.

For more information, call Temrex Corporation at (800) 645-1226 or (516) 868-6221.
