  • Shade Taking Service

    Shade taking can often be a complex, time consuming and challenging process for many dental clinicians, especially with today’s patients’ greater awareness of dental treatments and high demands for beautiful aesthetics.
    At McDowell and Service Dental Laboratory we offer a comprehensive shading taking service for such patients.
    When visiting the lab for shade taking, patients are greeted in our welcoming reception area and taken through to our purpose built shade consultation room.
    Shade analysis is done with the aid of the MHT Spectra Shade shade taking device, the Optilume Trueshade and Smileline light-colour correcting lamps, in conjunction with the Vita Classical and 3D shade guides, as well as GC Initial, Noritake and e.Ceram shade tabs.
    When referring a patient for a shade consultation at the laboratory, please contact our reception to arrange an appointment time.
