The newly enhanced VITA Bleachedguide 3D-MASTER sets the standard for tracking in-office bleaching procedures
Planning and monitoring the tooth whitening process has never been easier or more accurate than with the newly enhanced VITA Bleachedguide 3D-MASTER. The proven VITA Bleachedguide 3D-MASTER now integrates the 29 shade levels used by the American Dental Association (ADA), the globally recognized standard for shade level assessment.
VITA Bleachedguide 3D-MASTER also includes additional numerical designations, supporting clear communication between the dentist and the patient. The numerical units of the VITA Beachedguide 3D-MASTER are based on the brightness levels as defined by the ADA and facilitate accurate recording of shade changes during the bleaching process. This allows the dentist and patient the ability to discuss the desired result of the tooth bleaching procedure prior to treatment using the shade samples, and then to check the result after treatment has been completed.
The shade guide was developed jointly with VITA Zahnfabrik and Rade D. Paravina, DDS, MS, PhD, of the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston. “The VITA Bleachedguide exhibits the widest color range and has the most consistent color distribution as compared to VITAPAN classical and Trubyte Bioform. Inclusion of realistic bleaching shades complement contemporary esthetic dentistry.1” said Paravina.
The VITA 3D-MASTER shade system offers a full complement of restorative materials, including the popular VITA VM line of all-ceramic and porcelain-fused-to-metal veneering materials, Physiodens and VITAPAN denture teeth and 3D-Direct composite.
