Vita Easyshade® 5.0
The Vita Easyshade® 5.0 is one of the latest innovations in cosmetic dentistry to revolutionize the way we create dental restorations. This digital shade-matching device can be used to create restorations that seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth with an exceptional outcome. Inside your mouth, there are countless shades contained within your natural teeth. The Vita Easyshade® 5.0 allows our cosmetic dentist, Robert Rioseco, DMD, to select the shade for your porcelain crown or porcelain veneer that can produce the most natural-looking results possible.
Benefits of Vita Easyshade® 5.0
The Vita Easyshade® 5.0 can be an indispensable tool when you are trying to match the shade of a single tooth for a porcelain veneer or dental crown. The device has a number of settings, allowing Dr. Rioseco to select and match the shade of a single spot on the tooth or take an average shade of the entire tooth. Some of our patients have even used the Vita Easyshade® 5.0 to replace an existing crown or veneer with a new restoration that better matches their teeth’s natural shade. In addition, the Vita Easyshade® 5.0 can be used to accurately monitor your progress with our teeth whitening treatments.
The Vita Easyshade® 5.0 Procedure
The shade of your natural teeth is easily recorded with this handheld light-reading device. With the Vita Easyshade® 5.0’s state-of-the-art technology and software system, Dr. Rioseco can record the shade of the adjacent teeth, send this information to the laboratory, and receive an astonishingly accurate restoration. Once the restoration is returned from the lab, Dr. Rioseco can use the Vita Easyshade® 5.0 to double-check the shade of the crown or veneer before it is applied to the tooth and make sure the shade matches the prescription. Ultimately, this process yields more accurate results that can successfully meet your expectations for a beautiful smile.
