Technical Q&A

Should I use different shade guides for different products?

This is not necessary; however we routinely use the most popular shade guides( vita chromascope, 3d master and Ivoclar shade guides) and can convert and modify the shade you provide to match the desired restoration

Other than the impression and completed prescription , what else should I send.

For a successful case, we recommend you send the following:

  • A full arch impression
  • Length of centrals from cervical tissue
  • Bite registration
  • Stump Shade
  • Photos -Articulator type
  • Pre –op models
  • Facebow or stick bite
  • Smile selection

How do I block a dark prep?

There are a number of ways to successfully block out a dark preparation, we routinely recommend utilizing a composite material on the prepared tooth surface before bonding. ( you can bond on top of the composite) or you can utilize an opaque cement.
