      Really not a fan of using HT ingots unless its onlay crowns. and definitely not a LT on this case cuz seems like the patient's teeth have some translucency.

      Tell the good Dr to include a shade tab in the pics, it helps a lot to pick the right shade when you got a reference included (ie. you go and adjust the color saturation till the shade tab looks like the real one)...just sayin...

      Lol , the amount of times I've been called into the Doctors office to pick a shade on #31.......I give them a 'Really?' look . That's what you get for not charging for shade takes .

      In a case like this, I would think of the doc's history of shading. I have clients who religiously stick to certain range of the shade guide. I have a client since the dawn of history his most proscribed shading is d3 with c1 Incisal. So I have the a range doc, b range doc,etc.

      The shade depends upon a number of factors: the color of the lighting used while taking the pic, the camera setting, the computer monitor setting, and one's own cones in their eyes. Have the doc and his/her assistant take the color test below to see if they can even see color correctly. Take the test yourself. Evaluate and compensate for weaknesses.

      Awesome way to see how your eyes stack up............I'd like to hear people's results. Please post.
