Description

Knowledge of human tooth color and its distribution are critical to the understanding of shade matching in esthetic dentistry. Color vision is a part of the visual experience and one of the most complex processes occurring in the brain. Color realization is the result of three processes: stimulation, sensation and perception. Color can be described according to the Munsell’s color space (Albert H. Munsell, 1905) in terms of Lightness (L), Chroma (C) and Hue (H). The appearance of a tooth is affected by the interaction of its optical properties and spatial arrangement of the light, observer an tooth. The apparent color of the tooth is the result of the reflectance from the dentin modified by the absorption, scattering and thickness of the enamel. Color determination and interpretation of tooth color information in lab work is an important step in achieving success in ideal color reproduction.
