Dental photography from a phone is important today. Pictures are needed to display your work on social networks, as well as to record the result BEFORE and AFTER.

If you don't have a professional camera, you can take photos with your phone. We'll tell you about the accessories you need.

The cameras of modern phones have good resolution and the image quality is excellent.

A few tips for using your phone for dental photography.

1. Light is very important in photography. You can use the light from the dental unit lamp, but cover it with a cloth. The light will become softer.

Ring LED light 3200K-6500K. Also you can use phone light ring. The ring has three modes of light temperature (from warm to cold). the ring is easily installed on any smartphone. This ring is suitable for both intraoral and patient face photography.

The ring light is suitable for photographing the patient's face when outside the dental chair. We recommend not buying a cheap ring lamp online for $ 10. It will not shine well and the tripod will not be stable. You will spend money. A good version of the lamp price / quality for the link.
