it can be a pain...especially when you get to the 4R's and the 5M's...!!!

i will say...if you "dual build"...first bake / second bake...it does work...REAL WELL...!!!

most i know just use the systems that already "convert"...VM9...ceramco...that sort...
but shofu and noritake don't...!!! and...w/ this conversion...i don't worry about it...;)

btw...i don't think they were thinking about "converting"...the idea was to sell the dentists on a "new way" to take shades...easier...and it is...to pick them out...but to convert...HA...!!!
they want you to simply BUY the porc that is "converted"...(marketing thing)
got 2 luv it...?!?!

OM1, OM2, and OM3 are all Vita 3D master bleaching shades. C would be the cervical maybe?????? Did they give a different shade for the middle or incisal?

Funny...talked to the Dr. this morning..Apparently he was showing the guide to the assistant in the pt.'s mouth and said, "1m1, see..", so the assistant wrote down '1m1 c'. Anyway, Ive got the porc. and opaque for that shade but I dont have a 3-D shade guide to compare it to. Does it come close to any of the e.max bl colors, or the dentsply illumine guide?

Yeah, all the OM shades 1,2,3 match up with BL2 the best. 1M1 matches up best in my opinion to BL4, BL3 isn't bad either, just a tint light, hope that helps.

I like BL3. As stated above, it is just a TINY, TINY bit lighter (which is fine. this gives you the flexibility to shade down).

Thanks for the charts Travis... I they are pretty spot on... or so close that a little adjustment gets one on target.

Data?

Hi Travis,

Did you eyeball these color conversions? Or do you have a spectrophotometer? Can you provide the L,a,b values for the Vita Classic shades?

Lab Guy. Do you have a chart for mixing different shades to get a new shade. For example. If you run out of A3.5, could one mix A2 an A4 to get A3.5 ??

I find it best to use your own artistry rather than depending too much on charts and graphs. Start with the guide you are most familiar with and modify from there. Just my thoughts...
