Something many labs hear from their dental clients is how complicated the final choice to get a denture appliance can be. The decision to get a denture is often a difficult one, especially when coupled with misgivings over how the teeth will fit and look. The new VITA ToothConfigurator software (from VITA North America) is designed to help allay some of those fears by allowing the patient to be involved in the planning of their own dental restoration from the start.

Something many labs hear from their dental clients is how complicated the final choice to get a denture appliance can be. The decision to get a denture is often a difficult one, especially when coupled with misgivings over how the teeth will fit and look. The new VITA ToothConfigurator software (from VITA North America) is designed to help allay some of those fears by allowing the patient to be involved in the planning of their own dental restoration from the start.

With the new VITA ToothConfigurator software, patients can view how the finished prosthesis will look right on the computer screen.     

To start, the dentist is able to access a digital tooth library with the VITA anterior and posterior tooth lines, which can be designed virtually in the VITA Classical and 3D-MASTER shades, as well as in two bleached shades. With the assistance of the software, and based on a photo of the patient, the dentist works with the patient to select the anterior and posterior moulds most suited to their individual needs. The dentist then compiles a realistic computer simulation of the prosthesis that can be altered and adjusted as needed, working with the patient on how the restoration will ultimately look. The collaboration between the dentist and patient also helps ensure an ideal aesthetic solution and restoration that will completely satisfy the patient.

VITA North America has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the Classical Shade Guide, 3D-Master Shade System, Easyshade Advance 4.0, VITA ENAMIC and other quality VITA restorative materials. For information on the VITA ToothConfigurator, call 800-828-3839 or visit VITA North America’s website at www.vitanorthamerica.com
