Treatment planning is thus essential when planning implant treatment next to the natural dentition. Whilst the shade selection can depend on many factors that come into play such as lighting in the surgery, background lighting and daylight. There are many variations in what the dentist may see when trying to choose the correct shade. A combination approach of using digital photos, shade taking devices and direct vision will be discussed and how to select the perfect shade every time.
