Align partnered with Ultradent to offer a teeth whitening system optimized for the company’s clear aligners and retainers.

Align Technology announced an exclusive supply and distribution agreement with Ultradent Products to offer a professional whitening system for use with the company’s aligners and retainers.

Align will offer Invisalign trained doctors a professional whitening system with the Opalescence PF whitening formula from Ultradent, optimized for use with Invisalign clear aligners and Vivera retainers.

The system will carry the co-branded name Invisalign Professional Whitening System – powered by Opalescence. 

It offers the same whitening outcomes as the Opalescence PF product during active tooth movement with Invisalign aligners and during passive retention using Vivera retainers. 

The Invisalign Professional Whitening System will be commercially available globally in 2022.

“A survey of North American Invisalign practices shows that half of their patients ask for teeth whitening during or after they complete Invisalign treatment,” said Raj Pudipeddi, Align Technology’s chief product and marketing officer. “By providing an all-in-one solution that combines a leading teeth-whitening system with the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, we enable Invisalign trained doctors to enhance their patients’ treatment experience with a seamless workflow that also enables practice efficiency and growth.”
