Colour setting, photos and staining

Choice of colours and photos

Your patients will be greeted by our ceramists in a specially equipped room with specific lighting, the presence of windows facing patients provides natural lighting.

A unique sketch will be drawn with special attention to defining the restoration’s prep colour, as well as gums and adjacent teeth colour, when necessary.  We evaluate levels of luminosity, saturation, tint and degree of translucency required for the restoration.

We’ve established a 3 steps photo protocol. Thanks to our Nikon circular flash camera, we have put in place different settings in accordance with predetermined distances.

  • The macro photo, centered on one or two teeth, lets us see clearly the texture, the translucency and the teeth’s colouring gradation.
  • The photo of the whole mouth, using colouring guides, lets us evaluate the tooth needing restoration in a general framework. The colour is calibrated using superimposed colours guide on adjacent teeth.
  • The photo of the face helps us to better plan the tooth’s shape according to the form of the face, the eyes, the nose and the lips.
