The VITA 3D-MASTER shade system covers virtually all tooth shades that occur in nature and is designed to provide systematic coverage of the entire tooth color space. The concept of the 3D-MASTER system is based on a color classification principle where the values of lightness, chroma and hue have been positioned an equal distance from each other. Therefore, the shade determination can be easily carried out according to systematic criteria.
