VITA North America Introduces Easyshade LITE Digital Shade Measuring Device

The new device uses spectrophotometer technology to display the right tooth shade.

VITA North America has announced the release of its VITA Easyshade LITE, a new and compact digital shade measuring device that is precise and easy to use. The Easyshade LITE uses spectrophotometer technology to display the right tooth shade in just seconds, according to a press release from VITA North America.

The display shows the right tooth shade in both the established shade systems VITA classical® A1-D4 and VITA SYSTEM 3D-MASTER®. The color-coded display utilizes the traffic light principle, which clearly indicates the accuracy of the shade match: if the tooth shade is green, the match is said to be perfect; if the shade is not an exact match, a yellow or red tooth shade is displayed with an indication of how strongly the shade deviates from the natural tooth.

VITA Easyshade LITE reportedly provides objective, accurate results with the touch of a button. Another benefit is the streamlined communication between dentists and lab technicians.
