Why Color Matters

easyshade teeth whitening toolIf you’re getting veneers, an implant restoration, dentures, Snap-On Smile, crowns, or any other number of tooth repairs and replacements, you might be thinking that they should be bright and white. The truth of the matter is that our teeth come in all different shades of white, and if your tooth restorations or cosmetic repairs don’t match your specific shade of white, things can look off. The idea behind dental work is that it should look like you never got any done! Seamless integration with your natural teeth is the best way to accomplish this. That’s why it’s important to match your restoration with the color of the rest of your teeth.

Easyshade® V Technology

Among the various cutting-edge pieces of technology in our office, sits the VITA Easyshade® V.  This tool is what is called a “spectrophotometer”, which measures the spectrum of light that passes through a tooth—or, in layman’s terms, identifies a tooth’s color. This handheld device helps us match the color of our treatments to the color of your natural teeth. Using a sensor and innovative software, it identifies your tooth-shade, and aids in the creation of new restorations.

What Are The Advantages?

The biggest advantage of using the VITA Easyshade® V is that it helps determine the color of your tooth to help Dr. Homann match whatever tooth restorations he’s making. This technology can help fabricate crowns, prosthetic teeth, direct fillings, as well as veneers! It can also help Dr. Homann determine the optimal shade for your teeth while planning the process of teeth whitening.

Is it Safe?

Yes! No x-ray radiation is used in this product.  It is simply a light that passes through the tooth. The VITA Easyshade® V also uses an anti-infection cover that is changed before each use. This is a thin cover that goes over the device and does not affect the measurement of the tooth’s color.

The digital meter identifies your tooth’s color immediately, so the processing is fast and simple.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
