Last night Pinhoe Dental Centre hosted the first meeting of the year for the South and East Devon Dentinal Tubules Study Club. I was honoured to be asked to present a talk on the eLAB system created by Sascha Hein and the Bioemulation group as Ben Ede (my ceramist) and I went on the first UK course on eLAB last year.
It is a remarkably clever system in which a white balance card and a cross polarised filter allows precise colour measurements to be taken to eliminate the need for traditional shade tabs thereby avoiding all the flaws in the shade tab system. For awkward single central crowns it really does seem to be the future of shade taking.
My slideshow from the evening can be found on my shared google drive and links to the eLAB explanation videos can be found on my useful resources page:
