ShadeWave Dental Shade Matching

How do you take your case photos? Many dentists are now transitioning from digital cameras to their smartphones. However, more than 80% of mobile phone pictures sent to dental labs are not usable due to their low quality. In addition, mobile phones also pose potential PIPEDA/HIPAA compliance infringements. With United and ShadeWave® you can now ensure secure and high-quality case photos.

ShadeWave Mobile® is an app you can easily utilize for shade communication and intraoral photography. This app makes appointments efficient and allows for simple collaboration with United. You won’t need to take time to match shade tabs, and instead include any shade tab in the photo. The app will also adjust your camera’s zoom, exposure, flash, and more to take the perfect dental photo.
