Premier introduces VanillaMint Enamel Pro prophy paste
Enamel Pro offers ACP benefits with its formula
Enamel Pro is the only prophy paste formulated to deliver ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate). Enamel Pro creates ACP when it contacts the patient’s teeth and saliva. The available ACP helps to prevent future damage by stimulating remineralization of the tooth enamel. ACP fills in surface enamel crevices for an intense polish and shine. Scientific data supports that Enamel Pro actually gives greater luster for whiter, brighter teeth. Gluten-free Enamel Pro rinses off easily. Also available in mint, strawberry, cinnamon, grape, and bubble gum flavors in multiple grits. Visit Booth 3525 or visit www.premusa.
