Abstract

Aim

The aim of this study is to compare the color space of Vita Lumin shade guide (SG) with the natural teeth of the local population.

Materials and methods

A total of 100 maxillary central incisors (100 patients) were subjected to color measurement with a spectrocolorimeter. For each tooth, L*, a*, b* values were recorded. All the shade tabs of Vita Lumin SG were analyzed with a spectrocolorimeter to define the color space covered by the Vita Lumin SG. The L*a*b* values of natural teeth were plotted on separate scattered diagrams and compared.

Results

About two out of three attributes (luminance and blue spectrum) of the local population of Bengaluru displayed a broader range than those available in Vita Lumin SG.

Conclusion

The local population requires an SG with an extended range, covering a higher luminance spectrum and broader blue spectrum.

Clinical significance

Esthetic restorations require accurate shade matching with the adjacent natural teeth, SGs being the mean of shade selection and communication should be comparable to the natural teeth.
