The IPS e.max Shade Navigation App (SNA) addresses one of the biggest challenges with any material: proper shade/translucency selection. Through the evaluation and cataloging of thousands of real life samples, the SNA is able to provide the optimal mixture of shade and translucency for either lithium disilicate or zirconia, allowing for beautiful clinical outcomes. The SNA takes into account desired final shade, preparation shade, material thickness, type of restoration, and type of material to provide the best possible match. Simply input the parameters, and the app calculates the ideal material choice. This saves the dental technician time in the early steps of fabrication and drastically reduces the chances for costly remakes due to shade mismatch upon seating. The SNA is available as a free download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play store.
