Abstract :

The manual shade selection method is a subjective procedure in the dental clinic and the most commonly used one. Not only is it subjected to the operator's experience and affected by many factors, but also it records only limited information about the shade of the tooth based on hue, chroma and value; this results in transferring inadequate information to mimic the natural tooth structure. Dental photography is a tool of huge importance in assisting the operator to record all the needed information about the tooth shade. It also helps in the ease of transformation of the collected data to the lab when needed. Dental photography using a professional camera, that can be adjusted manually to standardize the picture conditions and the understanding of different lighting techniques, helps in creating a series of pictures, each one showing a piece of information about the tooth shade (hue, chroma, value, translucency, opalescence, fluorescence, and halo effect) and morphology (secondary and tertiary tooth morphology besides the special effects) to be recorded and reproduced when needed.
