I have not been a fan of the Clear Match shade system; in my opinion there were too many variables and the images were inconsistent. I saw a new product at the ADA developed by Dennis Braunston which eliminates much of the problem.
The Universal Shade Arm is perfect for Clear Match but it is also a very good tool to simply take consistent shade photos even with out the Clear Match software.
Precision consistency and predictability in taking a tooth shade it just a click away with the new Universal Shade ARM.
This device provides a consistent camera to shade tab relationship. The precise distance, angle, position and lighting are achieved every time!
