The number one reason for remakes is poor shade matching. Shade ARM provides both a consistent target to determine shades and software to analyse them.

It is foolish that most dentist are still holding up what amounts to a paint chip when any home depot in the land has a digital shade analyzer that can determine a paint shade with far more accuracy than eyeballing a chip. To be fair teeth are not one color but a subtle blend of colors, shades and translucency. That is why the software is so important. Getting the basic color is a good start but creating a tooth that actually looks like a tooth and matches the one next to it is a much more difficult task.
