Location: Washington AGD “Live Virtual Meeting”
The application of color theory and shade selection in restorative dentistry”, Color theory is a language that conceptually and perceptually describes the elements of color and their interactions. Unfortunately, it’s quite a tricky concept, and we all know if the color of a restoration is off it can result in us feeling like we’ve failed and the patient walks away disappointed.
Understanding color is tricky. Slight variances in shade play with our eyes, our minds, and, ultimately, our dentistry. The illumination in the dental treatment room, optical illusions, color blindness, and fatigue are among the dental professional’s ongoing obstacles to successful shade matching. This course will enlighten the dentist and ceramist on the dimensions of color, the effect of metamerism and other phenomenon.
By being fluent in the language of color, we can sharpen our perception of color, better understand existing color dynamics, make better predictions, and communicate more clearly about color. A review of these concepts as rules and guidelines will be presented in a manner that can be utilized to resolve complex esthetic problems. Armed with this knowledge you can get your restorations to match existing colors more successfully, so your patients leave feeling happy with your restorative outcomes.
