Venus White Pro is provided in an attractive, professional-looking kit for dispensing to patients. Dentists and patients found the highly viscous, mint-flavored gel remained in the tray for effective whitening during the time of use. Half of the patients used the 22% gel and one-quarter each used the 16% and 35% gels. Over 60% of patients preferred to follow the nighttime whitening regimen. The amount of gel in each kit is adequate to produce significant whitening, and patients reported they were pleased with the results. Seventy-three percent of patients reported tooth and gum sensitivity with their whitening, 75% of which was mild to moderate. Twenty percent of consultants rated Venus White Pro better than other take-home whitening systems they were using and 40% rated it equivalent. Sixty percent would switch to Venus White Pro and recommend it to a colleague. Ninety percent of patients would recommend Venus White Pro to friends and family.
