I’m Dr. Ron Smith I’m the primary dentist in this office and I’ve been working at dentistry for many, many years. We’ll leave it that way. We were interested in getting better
shading and color matching because we do a lot of prosthetic
work with porcelains and it’s not easy to get it really matched and patients are interested in getting it right, and so are we. We decided to convert one room to Promolux lighting, and leave one room in the original lighting, so that we would have a chance to look at the shade matching in both rooms and both sets of lights to see whether it worked for us or not. We really enjoy the color; we enjoy the lights. They just feel more comfortable to us. Things are brighter, it’s just like being in daylight. So we like it and we tested this for a couple of months. I found myself gravitating to the
new room with the new lights because I was much more comfortable working in there. My name is Jacky Ellison and I’m a Certified Dental Assistant. Aside from the shade matching that we do when we’re doing crowns, bridges, and different restorations. I do notice that I don’t feel as tired as I did before and I really like the energy. I find that maybe my eyes aren’t feeling as tired at the end of the day, so I do notice just a general better feel with the new Promolux lighting. When we’re sending the cases to the lab, sometimes you would have the cases coming back and the shade would be off, and we haven’t had any of that with the new lighting. So I would say that it is quite a bit more accurate shade matching. If we don’t have to do remakes the patient is much happier, we’re much happier, and we look much more like we know what we’re doing because we’re getting it right the first time a lot more often. I would definitely recommend the Promolux lighting to other dental professionals because it’s a lot easier to get an accurate shade match. And also for the patient, because they are also looking themselves to choose the proper shade. I would certainly be recommending it to others. I’m happy with it; I would do it again, and I would never go back to the previous lighting. I enjoy this so much more. The ambiance of the room, and the clarity of the light is wonderful.
