A polarizing filter is a device that is attached to the lens of the camera, and acts filtering the light that goes trough it.
In dental photography, it removes the majority of the reflections on enamel surface, caused by flash light.
By this effect you can reveal deep dental anatomy and visualize dental color in an easy mode.
All of our polarized pictures are not modified with any kind of software.
The main uses in dental area are:
-Prosthesis and composite restorations: color matching; color mapping; opacity evaluation; postreatment evaluation.
-Dental cosmetics: evaluation of dental bleaching.
-Restorative and orthodontics: decalcification and fissure control.
-Others: artistic photography and birrefringence effect.
