When undergoing treatment for a new ceramic crown, your dentist might ask you to visit our laboratory for a shade match to be made. Shade matching can also be undertaken using photos sent to the laboratory.
Our trained technicians use digital equipment to accurately capture tooth details and ensure close shade matching for natural results. This is a non-invasive procedure lasting about 15 minutes, during which the technician takes digital photographs of your teeth. This enables the ceramist, who will make the restoration, to match the colour of the new tooth as closely as possible to your existing teeth for a natural look, allowing you to smile with confidence.
We will also discuss with you and your dentist the best restoration to be used in your particular case. In some instances, your dentist might attend if he or she feels this would be beneficial.
