Esthetic Guide

    Welcome to all.  I hope you enjoy and benefit from this user-friendly technique.  This is a simple change in communication that can make a very significant difference in results with little cost, time, or effort.  Familiar Vita technology is not abandoned so transition is easy; color science is elevated to the science of illumination.
    Dentists and Ceramists will appreciate a language that makes sense and relates to tooth structure and restorative materials in a simple yet realistic way.  Although this system can reference characterizations such as crack lines, gingival tints, and calcified enamel, the importance of this technique is the change in our basic language to properly describe tooth appearance.  We must take our main focus from color to translucency and value.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Gerald M.
