VITA Easyshade®

One device – a multitude of applications. And always with your needs in mind.

With the new VITA Easyshade V, high-precision VITA vEye technology ensures that the digital focus remains squarely on tooth-shade determination and communication. The user-oriented operating concept is rounded off perfectly by a brilliant color OLED touch display that is both convenient and intuitive. The durable and long-lasting battery technology with integrated self-discharge protection ensures particularly stable operation when in continuous use. The innovative software concept in combination with the VITA vBrain neural network guarantees exact tooth-shade determination in accordance with the internationally established shade systems VITA classical A1-D4, VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER and VITABLOCS, as well as the bleached shades defined by the American Dental Association (ADA).

Thanks to a complete redesign, VITA Easyshade®V has a truly striking appearance. The seamless casing, layered structure of the internal components as well as the shortened measurement tip ensure maximum ergonomics that fit naturally in your hand.

Equipped with the latest 32-bit micro-controller with an ARM Cortex M3 core, the new, 5th generation VITA Easyshade is not only faster, it also offers new applications to support daily practice routine:

  • Determine your patients' tooth shade for selecting CAD/CAM materials, fabricating layered crowns, selecting prosthetic teeth, choosing the materials for direct fillings, and planning esthetic corrections using veneers.
  • Support the planning process for professional tooth bleaching through digital documentation
  • Make the most of the variety of options for sustained optimization of your quality assurance system
  • Make your daily routine easier when fabricating layered restorations using the application for displaying the shade gradient of the patient tooth shade from the incisal to the cervical region.
  • Verify your fabricated restorations as early as after initial firing

Is Easyshade a densitometer or a spectrophotometer?
  • VITA   Easyshade is a spectrophotometer. A defined light is passed into the tooth   and the remission spectrum measured.

Can the measuring tip become scratched without the anti-infection cover, and if so, does this affect .....

 ...... the measurement result?

  • The measuring tip will not be damaged when used normally, so the quality of the measurement results is maintained.
Can I perform intraoral measurement of crowns using VITA Easyshade Advance 4.0?
  • In restoration mode, selecting "User-Standards" and saving the measurement provides an approximation of classical and 3D shades for ceramic restorations.
Can the measurement results provided by my Easyshade become less accurate over time?
  • Easyshade automatically offsets external influences and any aging processes. However, the calibration block and the measuring tip must always be clean and undamaged (e.g. no scratches). Poor measurement results are often caused by calibration blocks that are not clean.
Do I have to use the anti-infection cover?
  • Measurement can be performed without the anti-infection cover. In this case, the device must be properly disinfected after each patient.

Why do my measurement results not match those of my visual shade determination?
  • Determining   tooth shade is a very subjective procedure. That is why visual tooth shade   determination on the same tooth by different people also delivers different   results. Studies have shown only approximately 16% correspondence between the   shades taken by three different dental professionals.

Why do measurement results vary for the same tooth?

This could be due to the following:

  • The measurement location is not at the center of the basic shade
  • Extreme tooth properties or discoloration
What happens if I don't place the measuring tip correctly on the tooth surface?
  • This can lead to incorrect measurement.

What impact does the anti-infection cover have during measurement?
  • Due to the optical principle adopted by Easyshade, measurement can be performed through a thin sheet without affecting the measurement result.
