I have just had a client ask me if I had heard of a shade taking system called Shadewave.
It seems from the website to be a bit like dropbox , the clinician uses a regular digital SLR to take an intraoral photo. Send it to this clouyd based website , lab then accesses the account and the site gives shade evaluation on the photos like other shade taking systems.
Has anyone used it or have any knowledge of the system.
Thanks in advance for any opinions

Do they have certain shade guides or perhaps a grey scale card like Elab? Why wouldn’t you just do it yourself V

I dont know much about it Polarmolar. The client is remote and just trying to improve his shadematching on difficult cases. He cannot just send the patient in

I had the prior version: "Clearmatch" It worked very well except the guy who developed it passed away. Dennis Braunston (Shadewave) was working with him and tried to get access to that software, but some issues got in the way. He came up with Shadewave as an extension of the other with better features. I'd use it if it weren't a pay per use deal. I am generally so dam happy to get a photo to help with the shade that I never charged the docs when I got them. Hard to leap that fence at this point.

I have had some good results with it. It has a shade reference guide (white,black and grey) with a dentin A2 on it. I have go thtem to allow the use of a second tab to verify shade. They are telling people to use D3 as the second but I recommend using a shade tab in it that is closest to the shade.
