We have been using the latest version of ShadeWave with my lab for about 9 months. It’s a great system if your lab is on board and trained well. It doesn’t replace the talent of the ceramist – it just gives the ceramist lots of information needed to create a great result. We use it for both posterior and anterior shade matching. All the assistants know how to use it and it’s pretty foolproof from the dental office standpoint.

“I think it is absolutely fantastic! Its information at your fingertips that we have never seen in this industry before.”

“What is interesting about what you’ve done here is that you have covered both ends. You made it simple for the dentist to take a photograph and simple for the lab to map out the shade with your software. That is covering both sides of it! No one has ever done that before.”

“Color mapping has always been an art form in itself. Selecting the colors is not always an easy task. Shadewave helps eliminate the guess work. By using it has allowed me to get more accurate build ups and less cases coming back for shade modifications.”
