Photography in dentistry is no longer a choice, it has become a necessity. In treatments performed in almost every field of dentistry; recording and archiving has been essential for treatment planning, communication with dental technician and patient, presentation for lectures and legal reasons. Even some special equipments were produced for dentistry. Especially in anterior restorations, procedures that are important for visual aesthetics such as primary / secondary anatomy and color selection must be performed correctly. The easiest way to see the macro and micro surface features of teeth and restorations in detail is dental photography, which is shot using the right light.
