shade taking


What is a shade match and why can't my dentist do it?

A shade match is when we carefully try to match the colour of your existing teeth. You will get the chance to discuss the aesthetics i.e. colour, shape, size and any other thoughts you may have directly with the technician who will be making your restoration. This way we know exactly what you want and it ensures we can do our best work for you.

What can I expect when I arrive?

On arrival you’ll be shown to the area for shades and here we will discuss your requirements. We will then proceed to take a couple of photos of your teeth and discuss them. We will answer any questions you may have and explain all the stages. We will show you exactly how your new teeth will be designed on the computer using CAD. All in all the process should take around 15 – 20 minutes. Please make a note of any questions you need to ask at your shade match appointment.
