Vita Shade Matching System

When a crown, inlay, veneer, or any other tooth colored restoration is fabricated, the appropriate shade of the new tooth or restoration must be selected. Traditionally, it has been up to the Dentist's eyes to match colors to an existing guide, and then communicate this information to the laboratory.

There are inherent problems with this system. The Dentist's eyes, lighting, subtleties in the shade matching guide colors can all cause mis-matches in the shade selection.

In our office, we use the latest technology...the Vita Shade Selection System. This is a computer device which shines a controlled beam of light onto the tooth we wish to match in color. This gives us a formula for how to duplicate that shade, which we can give to our lab technician, who in turn will make a restoration to match exactly.

This helps insure our restorations fulfill our patients' most stringent cosmetic requirements.
