The VITA 3D-MASTER® shade system covers virtually all tooth shades that occur in nature and is designed to provide systematic coverage of the entire tooth color space. The concept of the VITA 3D-MASTER shade system is based on a color classification principle where the values of lightness, chroma and hue have been positioned an equal distance from each other. Therefore, the shade determination can be easily carried out according to systematic criteria.
More than 100,000 dental professionals have discovered the ease of precise shade communication achieved with the VITA 3D-Master® Shade Guide. Based on the science of color, the 3D-Master allows precise, individual alteration of the three determinants of color: Value, Chroma and Hue. And the extended range of 29 shades (including 3 bleaching shades) as well as 52 easily reproduced intermediate shades provides a broader shade range than other guides.
The 3D-Master Shade Guide is compatible with the following porcelain systems:
- Omega 900
- VM®7 All-Ceramic
- VM®9 All-Ceramic
- VM®13 PFM
- PM®9 Pressable Porcelain

The 3D-Master Shade Guide is also compatible with Zeta indirect composites, 3D-Direct micro-hybrid direct composite and Vitapan and Physiodens denture teeth.
