Chairside Guide Facilitates Shade Matching and Communication With Labs

Dentistry Today


How well a restoration’s pink-tissue aesthetics match a patient’s natural gum-tissue color dramatically alters how lifelike and realistic a final restoration will appear once placed in a patient’s mouth. The ceramic Chairside Shade Guide 7.0 (CSG 7.0), offered by LSK121 Oral Prosthetics, is an innovative shade-matching tool that enables dentists to acquire their patients’ pink tissue and stump color as well as other aesthetic properties. It then allows the dentists to easily and succinctly communicate this information to their laboratory, which will vastly improve the consistency and realism of the results they receive from the laboratory.
