In the dental field, color coordinates are extremely easy to read, as we virtually only have to take care about brightness, red (a*) and yellow (b*). It is very uncommon to “visit” the negative numbers.

The L*a*b* scales rise above language barriers enabling anyone to easily communicate color and it provides the necessary information to calculate color differences.
OPTISHADE STYLEITALIANO communicates in Lab coordinates and LCH, making the communication very intuitive and precise.
