Summary:

The interest in color research in dentistry has increased significantly over the past several decades. Advancements in technology, computers, the Internet, and communication systems have greatly affected and shaped modern society. Commensurate with these strides are the advancements in contemporary dentistry. Shade determination for direct and indirect restorations has always been a challenge for the esthetic dentist. Today’s shade-matching technologies have been developed in an effort to increase the success of color matching, communication, reproduction and verification in clinical dentistry, and, ultimately, to increase the efficiency of esthetic restorative work within any practice. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of the current state of shade-matching technologies and instrumentation, and their clinical and research application.
