Dental Articles on Occlusion, Centric Relation, Restorative Dentistry & More
Hi. I'm Scott Finley with The Dawson Academy, with a quick tip that will give you something to consider when you're selecting shades for you restorations.
The ambient lighting will certainly the wavelength that is then received back to the observers' eyes. So we can determine whether or not the color truly is true, in a full spectrum lighting.
We know of the elements of color, that the value is the most important element of shade. And if we can nail the value, we have a little more latitude in both the chroma and the hue, in trying to make a restoration visible blend with the surrounding dentition.
We have to realize that teeth are built in layers. From the dentin to the enamel, with different varying levels of translucency. And if you consider that, or if you train your eye in that way, I think you'll be more succesful in creating beautiful smiles.
