I always struggle with the stained crack line. Do I make it the mirror image or slightly different?Thank you everyone. I dont usually show my work, mainly because most of it isnt that great.
Lets get critical...
I did have a nice photo to work from. Actual shade was close to A-4, but more orange. I missed the inc edge halo. Contour was off a bit. I used the mirror tool on exo, but the space was wider than #8. stained crack was giving me issues. I meant it to be longer and straight, but the frustration was getting me edgy and I was shaking a bit and just gave up. I do a lot of cases with those whiter enamel cracks. I add some on the first coat of glaze, but then I do a couple more coats of glaze to build up some glass, then add a few more cracks closer to the surface. I think in total I had 5 glaze bakes. The cervical brown stain I do think worked well.
Thanks to @rkm rdt for posting a stellar quality crown some where on here a couple months ago. He was showing a killer match to a 3D shade; that was what pushed me into getting the MiYo kit from Jensen.
This is where the colour scan comes in handy when the prepreparation scan is taken. I can just copy what they had.
If no scan, then I'll just wing it .Seeing the patient helps too. My hats off to those of you that just work from a pic.
