A study published in The Journal of Clinical Dentistry has shown that Nu Radiance FortÉ Teeth Whitener promotes the remineralization and recalcification of teeth during the whitening process. The study demonstrated that FortÉ recalicified incipient lesions to clinically significant depths (100 micrometers) and improved the surface hardness of the enamel. The study was performed under the direction of Bruce R. Schemehorn at Dental Products Testing, Indiana University Emerging Technologies Center in Indianapolis.
The tests, which simulated in vivo conditions, showed significant uptake of calcium (10%+ increase) and corresponding increases in surface hardness when using FortÉ calcium peroxide whitening agent, compared to a nonwhitening control (saliva). These results compared favorably with the losses of calcium and decreased enamel surface hardness reported in studies of many conventional whitening agents.
The Nu Radiance FortÉ Whitening System is a dentist-provided, tray-based, take-home whitening product that uses calcium peroxide to boost the whitening effect while providing calcium compounds at a healthy high pH to remineralize the teeth and to reduce the dentinal fluid flow, a major cause of tooth sensitivity. FortÉ uses a dual barrel syringe to dispense freshly mixed gel, a combination of 14% calcium peroxide and 30% carbamide peroxide, at each application.
The Nu Radiance FortÉ Whitening System is available in single-patient kits with EVA material or formable mouth trays, touch-up kits, and in bulk packs of 36 individually wrapped whitening syringes.
