For most of our patients at The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, one of the main goals of porcelain veneer or dental crown procedures is to achieve results that look as natural as possible. While we have always strived to match the shade of restorations with each patient’s natural tooth color, a recent technological innovation has revolutionized the way we decide upon color. The Vita Easyshade 5.0 can “read” the color of your teeth with incredible accuracy for inconspicuous restorations that can blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
Especially for patients who need a single porcelain veneer or dental crown, the Vita Easyshade 5.0 can be indispensable for achieving natural-looking results. This handheld device digitally interprets the shade of the teeth adjacent to the damaged tooth. Depending upon your aesthetic goals, our cosmetic dentist can use the state-of-the-art software system to either take the shade from a single spot on a natural tooth or use the whole surface of the tooth and create an “average” color.
To help ensure that your final results meet your expectations, the Vita Easyshade 5.0 can also be used to double-check the shade of your restorations once they have been created. This allows you and Dr. Robert Rioseco to inspect the shade one final time before the restorations are actually applied to the affected teeth. With the Vita Easyshade 5.0 you can enjoy a rejuvenated smile without anyone knowing you’ve had dental work.
