Professionally communicating all the important details on a patient case can make the difference between creating a seamless, high quality procedure or a difficult, complicated one. VITAs new ShadeAssist shade communication software takes the guesswork out of case planning and streamlines the process by creating a detailed prescription and case planning document that can be printed or e-mailed.
ShadeAssist can be used as a stand-alone software where VITA shades can be entered manually for case planning and patient data storage, or in conjunction with the VITA Easyshade Compact where all the data is imported automatically for a complete digital shade solution.
A patients shade information is first created and retained within ShadeAssist by selecting which tooth is to be treated, either by its tooth number, or from a pictorial tooth chart. Once these notes are created, additional drawing tools allow for further information and clarification.
Case-related digital photographs may also be imported into the software for optimal viewing of aesthetics and characterization considerations. The observer is able to analyze the tooth more accurately by viewing influential nuances and the effects of translucency in addition to the tooths base shade. Feature tools for brightness and adjustment of contrast are included.
Once all the important information, images and notes have been added, the user has the ability to print three different versions of the prescription or case planning document: one for the lab, one for the patient and one for their own files. The software also enables the dental professional to include their company name and logo, creating a letterhead type document when printed.
Vident has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the internationally recognized Classical Shade Guide, 3D-Master Shade System and quality VITA restorative materials.
