The Fundamentals of Color: Shade Matching and Communication in Esthetic Dentistry
Quintessence Publishing Company 2004, Carol Steam, IL Authors: Chu, S., Devigus, A., Mieleszko, A. 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 lavishly illustrated 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 technologically advanced shade matching, including tips for communicating with the lab technician, as well as a recommended protocol that combines both approaches. The appendix demonstrates this final approach through a series of case studies. This unique guide to color will allow the clinician to achieve an accurate and esthetic shade match the first time, every time.
