BREA, California--VITA has introduced the fourth generation of Easyshade technology with the new VITA Easyshade Advance 4.0. New functions for automatic measurement assist with shade determination. With measurement technology and durable LED components, VITA Easyshade Advance 4.0 offers precision that can be twice as effective as that of the human eye.
A new “average” mode in the Easyshade Advance 4.0 allows users to measure up to 30 shades on a single tooth and arrive at an overall average shade. This makes the determination of a base shade on tricky anteriors a simpler process. A user no longer has to place the probe tip precisely perpendicular to the tooth surface. The shade measure button can be depressed prior to placement and the Easyshade Advance 4.0 will automatically measure when proper placement is achieved. Using Bluetooth, the measurement data can be wirelessly transferred to the VITA Assist communication software on operatory computers. The results are displayed in international shade standards for VITA classical A1-D4 and VITA 3D-MASTER. VITABLOCS shades can also be specified. The data for the exact display of bleaching effects can also be displayed in accordance with the internationally recommended scale from the American Dental Association. VITA Easyshade Advance 4.0 is scheduled to be available in June 2013. For information, call (800) 828-3839 or visit www.vident.com.
