Finally: True Single-Shade Composite Resins
Over the years, shade guides have been created to make it easy to choose the correct color dental product to use on a particular case. However, since human teeth are composed of different tissues – dentin and enamel – and each has different optical properties, mimicking the appearance of human teeth usually requires the use of multiple materials. The ultimate goal is a single material that can mimic the appearance of translucent enamel layered upon more opaque dentin, and for this single material to also be able to match all shades of human teeth. This eBook provides an easy-to-read overview of true single-shade composite resins.
