Shade selection is a daily challenge for the dental practitioner. It is an important, if not decisive, stage responsible for the final aesthetic result of a restoration. At present, we aim to follow the Vitapan Classical shade guide, which represents the gold standard, as closely as possible. In this context, our aims were:
- firstly, to propose a customised shade guide for the Reflectys (ITENA Clinical) collection studied;
- secondly, to study the correlation between the different shades of composite resin obtained and the Vitapan Classical shade guide.
This enabled us to present the enamel-dentine combinations resulting from this correlation and thus offer combinations that any practitioner could use. To illustrate this approach, we present a clinical case with reference to the combinations of the customised Reflectys (ITENA Clinical) shade guide used.
