Vanish 5% Sodium Fluoride White Varnish

11 Customer Reviews
Product Description
The tri-calcium phosphate ingredient, which is exclusive to 3M ESPE, uses an innovative technology customized to work with Vanish white varnish to deliver fluoride, phosphate, and calcium— key ingredients for building strong teeth. Vanish white varnish with TCP flows and doesn’t harden or stop where applied. The varnish beneath the surface layer remains fluid for a long period of time, and continues to flow from treated to untreated tooth surfaces. Thanks to its ability to flow across and between teeth, Vanish white varnish with TCP allows more varnish to reach more tooth surfaces, making increased amounts of fluoride available. The first to incorporate this tri-calcium phosphate ingredient into a varnish, 3M ESPE has made Vanish white varnish with TCP easy to use. With Vanish white varnish with TCP, no pretreatment is necessary; teeth to be treated only need to be “toothbrush clean” prior to application. The product is swept on in 1 simple coat, and treatment is completed in seconds. Vanish white varnish with TCP is available in cherry, melon, or mint flavors, and is sweetened with xylitol. A truly patient-friendly varnish, Vanish white varnish with TCP allows patients to eat and drink immediately following application.

So easy and works great.

Varnish that sticks
I have tried several different varnishes. I keep going back to 3m due to the flow and because I do not have to dry the teeth to apply. I find the cost a little high, but it seems that I get what I pay for!

Stickier than some
I've been using this varnish for some time, but have had samples of others that I like better. It seems to be effective for my patients, but it's very thick and sticky. Kind of a turnoff for some patients.

Smooth & easy application
In our pedo office, we have tested just about every brand of fluoride varnish. This product is by far our favorite! It goes on smoothly and with ease, and most patients really like the fun flavors.

Change is a good thing!
For several months our office was looking for a fluoride varnish that would have good pt complience (no sour faces!) and show the results we were looking for. After a lunch and learn with a 3m rep, we tried the samples he gave us and have been using 3m ESPE Varnish every since! It has made both adults and children stop with the sour faces and given us both the anti caries and the decreased sensitivity results we wanted. Love the consistency,the packaging and the taste. I would recommend 3m ESPE 5% sodium fluoride to every hygienist I know!

Less complaints
We have been using Varnish Fluorides for several years now and have had a variety of comments from patients as well as clinical team members that range from "too sticky and has a weird after taste" to "easy to apply and it is not yellow" Vanish Varnish definitely fulfills the second statement. People will always question benefits of fluoride and its necessity, but our finding has been that the topical application with the longer contact (hence the need for it to stick to the teeth)gives the time needed for optimum uptake of the fluoride to tooth enamel and cementum (when there is gingival recession). Patients are much more accepting of the treatment when they experience that they do not have problems with sensitivity, and/or the children are not getting as many carious lesions! The Melon flavor is a favorite even with adults!

Fluoride Varnish
Our office has tried several brands of fluoride varnish with limited patient acceptance. A rep for 3-M introduced us to the Vanish White Varnish. Not only does it look more natural on the teeth (no more yellow teeth!) but patients love it! I have been able to place varnish on patients as young as 1 years old.

Good flavor and application
I had a hard time with varnish until I tried this product. Most were so sticky and set so quickly that I could not get it on the teeth adequately. Some did not smell good at all and the taste was very unappealing. A few seemed curdled and did not apply smoothly. This varnish smells and tastes great. I have not had one patient complain about the taste. It is also easy to apply and does is not sticky or curdled. I have noticed however, that some of the older (but not expired) product does seem to set a little faster than it did when it was new. It makes it a little difficult to get the whole mouth done without the brush getting stuck together with all of the varnish that has set on it.
