Keeping it natural

Color matching is essential to achieving an artificial restoration that works with your patient’s smile. Van Hook Dental Studio offers onsite custom shades with a trained technician. We are one of the few laboratories that use SpectroShade™, a portable device that reads the color of the tooth to indicate the closest available chromatic standard for reconstruction. SpectroShade is an industry-leading technology that provides reliable and accurate data to give your patient the most natural-looking tooth.

  • Make your shade appointment at least 24 hours after your visit to your dentist by calling us at 480-730-5998. Your teeth will be slightly dehydrated and need to rehydrate to their natural color.
  • Make sure to not bleach your teeth for at least 10 days before your shade appointment.
  • Appointments take approximately 15 minutes and digital photos will be taken.
