The multifunctional SR Vivodent S PE and SR Vivodent S DCL shade guides not only help you to select the appropriate tooth shade; They also offer a systematic approach to choosing the most suitable tooth shape on the basis of the integrated full denture prosthetics instruments.
One guide – three functions – always at your fingertips: The shade guides for the SR Vivodent S PE and SR Vivodent S DCL tooth ranges consist of shade samples for determining the tooth shade. In addition, a facial meter and a papillameter are compactly integrated in the tools. As a result, they significantly simplify the esthetic design process for dentists in the fabrication of dentures.
The interalar width as a reference for the anterior tooth width
The integrated facial meter is used to measure the interalar width at the base of the nose. This measure provides an indication of the tooth size to be used: S, M or L. Therefore, the selection of suitably shaped teeth is reduced to a manageable number. This considerably simplifies the determination of the correct tooth shape.
Papillameter provides a reference for the tooth length
The papillameter is placed on the incisive papilla. It is used to measure the lip length of the patient while the upper lip is in a relaxed and a smiling position. These measurements provide an indication of the length of the front teeth.
