CUSTOM SHADE SERVICES

 

In order to maximize esthetic results in the anterior, Nakanishi Dental Laboratory provides a two part customized shade service.  Proper shade matching frequently requires both ClearMatch® digital shade selection (Part ONE) and also Custom Staining (Part TWO) in our laboratory.

 

Part ONE: Initial photo survey and ClearMatch® digital shade selection
With a Nakanishi Color specialist, this is a 15 minute photographic process done at our Bellevue location.  Shade appointments may be scheduled Monday through Friday between 8:00am to 12:00pm.  We also accept photos taken by the office.

Note: Please do not send patients immediately after clinical appointments if the teeth are dehydrated.  Also, patients should have completed any bleaching procedures well in advance of this service.

Part TWO: Custom Staining (frequently required for optimal results)
Often after the crown is completed using our ClearMatch® digital shade selection process in part one, esthetics can be further improved by Custom Staining.  This is a 45 minute appointment and requires the crown to be tried in and removed by the patient for ceramic firing and custom staining.  Custom Staining appointments may be scheduled Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 12:00pm at our Bellevue location and advance notification is greatly appreciated.

Note: We cannot remove cemented or screw retained implant crowns and patients must be willing and able to remove and replace their own crowns.
