1 x Inspiro Shade Guide
The dedicated and special Inspiro shade guide allows a precise and reliable color evaluation.
It has been developed as an integral tool of the ‘Natural Layering Concept’ and incorporates the concept of 2 distinctive restorative layers (body & skin). It has smaller dentin/body samples which can be inserted into enamel/skin samples to demonstrate any 2-LAYER combination.
The selection of the dentin shade starts in the cervical part of the teeth, where the enamel thickness is minimal and does minimally interfere with the evaluation process. On the contrary, the selection of enamel/skin is to be made visually (without using the skin samples) where mere enamel can be observed, namely in the incisal or proximal areas. Then, both samples can be joined to confirm any specific body and skin combination.
it is recommended to use glycerin in-between both composite samples for more accurate shade selection process.
The concept was introduced in 1995 by Prof Dr D Dietschi and published for the first time in 1997. It is based on the idea of approaching nature as closely as possible, using a simplified and more reliable layering approach with only two layers (dentin & enamel) to perfectly mimic the tooth structure and appearance.
The Inspiro Direct Esthetic Line represents the latest development in the application of the Natural Layering Concept, with improved optical properties and a more comprehensive, logical choice of colour and material consistencies it is a simple and predictable system to reach unrivalled esthetic integration and restoration quality.
The shade guide can serve for color selection like for the restorative material, which is one more key advantage of this system.
