3M™ Vanish™ XT Extended Contact Varnish is a light-cured site-specific enamel and dentin coating that provides immediate protection of tooth surfaces. Offering protection beyond the coating, this tooth sensitivity treatment helps prevent demineralization and white spot lesions. Vanish XT Extended Contact Varnish is virtually invisible on the tooth surface and releases fluoride, calcium, and phosphate.

3M™ Vanish™ XT Extended Contact Varnish

Immediate and lasting sensitivity relief. Extended fluoride release.

In addition to protecting exposed dentin, 3M™ Vanish™ XT Extended Contact Varnish has been shown to both penetrate and seal tubules, which provides immediate relief from hypersensitivity associated with the movement of fluid through open tubules. Laboratory testing also demonstrates that this protective coating reduces dentin permeability by 88%.

    Releases fluoride, calcium and phosphate.

    Coating provides extended fluoride release and is replenished each time a patient uses a fluoridated product.

    Coating remains on the tooth for 6 months or longer.

    In addition to getting the benefits of extended fluoride delivery, your patients will enjoy protection from demineralization and acid erosion for 6 months or longer.

    Root surface requires no drying or pre-treatment before applying dental coating.

3M™ Vanish™ XT Extended Contact Varnish is a resin-modified glass ionomer that releases fluoride, calcium and phosphate. This enamel coating gets recharged every time the patient brushes with fluoride toothpaste or uses any fluoridated product. So, not only do your patients get the protection of a physical barrier with an effective hypersensitivity treatment, but they also get the benefits of long-term fluoride delivery.

Vanish XT Extended Contact Varnish is easy to use and does not require the use of a rubber dam.

Suggested applications
  • Protective coating for treatment of tooth sensitivity caused by exposed root services
  • Site specific protective coating for high risk, caries prone areas (e.g., around orthodontic brackets, non-cavitated lesions, acid erosion prone surfaces)
  • Temporary protective coating for immature enamel (e.g., newly erupting molars)
