Award Winning Dental Shade Matching
Ambient room lighting in the dental surgery often leads to an incorrect perception of true colours. This can ultimately result in the failure of direct and indirect aesthetic restorations, which can be costly to replace.
Smile Lite is a revolutionary reliable, simple and essential tool, which allows you to drastically reduce the risk of mistakes during shade-taking for dental restorations. The LEDs are colour calibrated to stimulate natural daylight. Simply hold the light when selecting a shade, and Smile Lite will provide optimal lighting conditions for correct shade selection.
The Smile Lite quickly pays for itself:
Smile Lite 5500°K natural daylight LEDs
Equipped with six 5500°K daylight calibrated LEDs, Smile Lite provides natural and neutral stable light, regardless of the time of the day or the weather outside.
The light quality of Smile Lite allows you to easily determine the hue, value and chroma of natural teeth for perfect shade taking.
Excludes External Light Interferences
The rectangular view finder through which the teeth are seen helps isolate the working area in order to avoid any external interferences (such as other light sources).
Live-polarisation filter. See teeth like never before
Inspired by the works of famous lecturers and clinicians, together with Styleitaliano, the Style Lense filter uniquely removes light reflection (specular and diffuse) and allows the user to observe the teeth in a completely new way:
The live-polarisation Style Lense filter is included with every Smile Lite. The filter is magnetically attached to the Smile Lite, which allows for easy connection and removal.
Can I disinfect Smile Lite and Smile Capture between patients?
Yes. Dental disinfectant wipes can be used to clean both products. Please do not autoclave or submerge either product in water as this will irreversibly damage them.
Is the Smile Lite or a smartphone included with Smile Capture ?
No, the Smile Lite and smart phone must be purchased separately.
Can I use Smile Capture without the calibration box?
We recommend using the calibration box with Smile Capture, and that is why it is included in every order. The calibration box is an essential part of the concept - if you decide not to use it you’ll get random results far from the possibilities offered by Smile Capture.
I downloaded the App from the App Store, but it isn't working
Please delete the App from your phone and download it again. When the phone is asking you to authorise access to the photo album, click yes.
Do I need to recalibrate after each photo?
No, it is not necessary to recalibrate after each photo. A new calibration is required when you quit the application (or if using the polarising filter).
I can't find the image I just took in the patient’s album
Make sure that you have entered the name of the patient (new or existing) before the calibration process. If that was not done, the image will be in the main photo album.
My images are very dark when using the polarising filter
You probably forgot to recalibrate Smile Capture. The filter is actually absorbing part of the light, so a new calibration is required. We recommend you use the same calibration card as you did for your pictures without the filter.
My pictures are blurry
During the calibration process, the autofocus is disabled. A blurry picture is a sign that you were not the correct distance away from the patient when you took the photo. The distance between camera-patient must be the same distance as the one between camera-target during the calibration process. A few tricks :
- At the beginning, it might be helpful to slightly zoom in (pinch on the Smartphone screen) for a better appreciation of the sharpness on the screen
- The patient’s head should be supported and not moving
- The user must resist from moving back and forth during the photo session
My pictures are over-exposed
The choice of the calibration card determines the value (brightness) of each picture. If the picture is over exposed, the user should use the High Value card.
My pictures are under-exposed
If the picture is over exposed, the user should use the Low Value card.
