The Noritake Shade Guide has been specifically designed to match precisely with Noritake Porcelains. It will make shade taking from natural teeth very easy.
Basic Concept of Shades
Noritake Porcelain incorporates less of a greenish color and shifts toward more of a pinkish color. This new system promotes better reproduction of the vivid shades of natural teeth. Noritake shade Guide was developed utilizing this concept. Please note that stains have not been used in the fabrication of the Shade Guides to facilitate the correct selection of shades.
Noritake Original Shades
- The chroma is between A1 and A2 shades – the hue corresponds to the slightly reddish shades.
- The chroma is between A2 and A3 shades – the hue corresponds to the slightly reddish shades.
- NW0, NW0.5
- These two shades are useful for the cases where whiter teeth are required due to the patient’s request or to match adjacent bleached teeth.
