Synopsis:
This course is about how one uses color to get that perfect shade match. Color is an integral part of aesthetic dentistry. If the color of a restoration is off, the mistake can be glaringly evident and the result is an unhappy patient. Most dental schools do not do an adequate job in teaching color theory. Color theory is a language that conceptually and perceptually describes the elements of color and their interactions. Unfortunately, understanding color is tricky. Slight variances in shade play with our eyes, our minds, and, ultimately, our dentistry. The illumination in the dental treatment room, optical illusions, color blindness, and fatigue are among the dental professional’s ongoing obstacles to successful shade matching.

This course will enlighten the dentist and ceramist on the dimensions of color, the effect of metamerism and other phenomenon using actual examples from Dr. Ochi's own cases. By being fluent in the language of color, we can sharpen our perception of color, better understand existing color dynamics, make better predictions, and communicate more clearly about color. A review of these concepts as rules and guidelines will be presented in a manner that can be utilized to resolve complex aesthetic problems.

A GREAT course by Dr. Lane Ochi. Dr.Ochi doesn't just go over color and shade matching theory, but provides excellent examples of color interaction that really engage the viewer of the course. He also has links to other color matching and training resources. Thanks for the awesome course Lane. Hope to see more like this from you!

Lane does an excellent job of making what many deem a subjective topic, very objective. Color and vision is an art but it is also a science, which Lane does a great job explaining. Even if you have no background or interest in photography or fine art, you will find the presentation entertaining and informative. I look forward to watching it again! Brad Blair

Great information on shade matching. If anything, I learned that I respect my lab technicians that much more. Such a difficult task, but Lane does a great job of explaining the "mysteries" of color.

Having been a photographer myself for 20 years, and a dentist with a serious interest in cosmetic dentistry for 12+ years, I've learned a fair amount about color at various times. However, I always had lingering questions when a shade didn't go just perfectly. Dr. Ochi's course was the most concise, in-depth, and understandable course on understanding hue, value, and chroma that I've ever seen, and was extremely practical in how to apply it. If you're part-way through and feeling like you don't know how to apply this info, make sure you stick with it - he pulls it all together in the last 1/3 just perfectly. Highly recommended!
nice course
