Figure 3: Robert Michael, CDT, prepared two different frameworks to test how the color of the final restoration would be affected. Top row: framework #1. Bottom row: framework #2.

Figure 4: The conventional bridge with framework #1 produced a “cooler,” lower chroma, more translucent shade.
Figure 5: The modified bridge with framework #2 resulted in a slightly “warmer” shade, influenced by the background and mild characterizations.
