Clinical Tips

  • If you are going to use this material consistently, arrange the VITA shade guide light to dark to correspond to SimpliShade light to dark equivalent shades.
  • Polish with diamond paste and you will get a glassy smooth finish that rivals your most beautiful glass-ceramic restorations.
  • If you have to choose between light and medium, go for the light because it tends to err on the side of darker.
