Providing patients with a natural-looking smile is an important goal for the dental professional. However, obtaining an accurate shade match for restorations can be a difficult and frustrating experience. This book explains the basic science and art of color to help the reader better understand the mechanics involved in the shade-matching process. Moreover, it details the myriad clinical elements that can affect the perception of color. The authors also present easy-to-follow protocols for both conventional and technology-based shade matching, including tips for communicating with the lab technician and a recommended protocol that combines both approaches. Twelve case studies demonstrate this combined approach, which improves productivity and clinical success by allowing the clinician to achieve an accurate and esthetic shade match, in most cases with only one fabrication.
