Optishade: Tips and tricks

Optimizing OPTISHADE color measures

Light contamination: external light is the common enemy of most color measuring systems. Although OPTISHADE STYLEITALIANO is designed to avoid this disadvantage as much as possible, light can filtrate through the surroundings of the cone.

OPTISHADE STYLEITALIANO measures the color in context, which means that the tooth color is measured including the gum reflection and the nearby structures.

• Avoid strong light in the environment.

• Avoid being near windows.

• Avoid strong artificial light, especially the one from the dental chair.

• When measuring models, light contamination is more likely to happen.

• Turn off the dental chair light during OPTISHADE measurements, even if it’s not pointing in the area you are working.
