In today’s modern technological environment, dental photography is, without a doubt, a major component of an optimized workflow between the dentist and the dental laboratory. Pictures of teeth are, of course, the main resource, but digital dental photography can be used to communicate so much other information: a picture of a framework to the milling centre; a picture of an impression to the dentist; a photo of the situation in the mouth of a patient; an image of the patient at home so they can think of the reasons of a proposed treatment, and many more…
In order to help labs and clinicians with photography, Smile Line has introduced two products that work in harmony with one another.
Smile Lite is a colour corrected light to 5500K for ease of taking shades and photography. It comes with a polarizing filter designed to help labs and clinicians to get greater depth and an accurate colour of the tooth.
Smile Capture is a set of accessories and an app allowing lab technicians and dentists to combine Smile Lite and Smartphones for dental photography.
Without the proper tool, shade taking can become very risky and cause a source of failures when producing an aesthetic restoration.
Several factors can influence an incorrect perception of true colours, like ambient light (intensity, quality) and the working environment. Even human factors like the level of stress or fatigue on the eye can cause shade taking errors.
Smile Lite is a revolutionary new tool which brings you reliability, simplicity and efficiency. It allows you to drastically reduce the risk of mistakes during shade-taking.
Equipped with 5500 K (daylight) calibrated L.E.D (Light Emitting Diodes), Smile Lite provides natural and neutral light, stable and reliable regardless of the time of the day or weather outside (sunny or cloudy). Light quality of Smile Lite allows you to determine with ease and security the hue, value and chroma of natural teeth.
The rectangular view finder through which the operator observes the teeth clearly delimits the ‘working area’.
Dental Photography becomes a snap with Smile Capture – for more details pleased visit Smile Lines website in Switzerland.
