Heraeus’ Venus WhiteÂ® Ultra Pre-Filled Disposable Trays Called “Dentist’s Secret Weapon” for Reclaiming Whitening Revenues
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Dec. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Heraeus Kulzer, LLC, the worldwide leader in dental esthetics, today cited the ability of its Venus White Ultra Pre-Filled Disposable Whitening Trays to help dental practices reclaim whitening revenues that have been diverted to over-the-counter whitening products.
“A recent survey by the AACD indicates that approximately 22% of patients use over-the-counter whitening products,” said Amy Holmes, Heraeus Product Manager for Venus White. “We believe that a significant portion of these revenues can be recaptured by dental practices, and that our Venus White Ultra product can make this possible while maximizing practice profit and productivity.” According to Ms. Holmes, this will also benefit the patient. “There’s no doubt,” she said, “that whitening systems administered and monitored by dental professionals offer a more consistently successful whitening experience.”
Venus White Ultra Pre-Filled Disposable Whitening Trays are part of Venus White’s three-level whitening system, the only such system available to US dental practices through dental distributors. The other two levels in the system are the Venus White Pro line for use with custom whitening trays, and the Venus White Max in-office whitening line.
Venus White Ultra represents a smart and convenient entry-level whitening option that provides unique business opportunities and opens doors to more advanced Venus White Pro and Venus White Max options. It can also be the perfect accompaniment to Venus White Max as the follow-up home system to sustain the results achieved with in-office whitening.
Venus White Ultra involves a once-a-day treatment for up to seven days, and results in visibly whiter teeth in just three days. Each disposable tray is pre-filled with mint-flavored, 11.2% hydrogen peroxide gel. Both the upper and lower trays, which are sized differently, are ultra-thin and designed to mold securely around each tooth for maximum comfort. They also maximize patient and staff convenience, as no multiple visits and little or no chair time are required.
In addition to enjoying exceptional results and convenience, Venus White practices are also supported by outstanding patient marketing programs. In addition to patient brochures, posters and event cards, the company offers an innovative “Print-on-Demand” service on its website that allows practices to customize and print marketing materials featuring the practice’s information. The practice can also access free downloads for use on its own website and in its customer communications. Yet another service offered by Heraeus is its Heraeus Dental 360 e-newsletter, which offers customers marketing tips and other “news you can use.”
