Shade Selection Service

When it comes to teeth, colour can be far more complex than finding a shade tab that is pretty close. When it comes to diagnosing dental conditions, tooth preparations, occlusion, and so on, dentists are unquestionably the experts. When it comes to tooth colour though, dental technicians, particularly those skilled in ceramics, have a high level of expertise, and often understand it at a much higher level than most general dentists.

In order to match the shade of a neighbouring tooth, colour is not the only important factor. Chroma, value, translucency, textures, natural light in the room, background colours, and artificial lighting are all factors that can make a big impact on a shade and material selection. Having your patient visit the lab for a colour match and photographs by one of our expert technicians can help take your ceramic layered cases to the next level!
