Accurate shade matching is still largely dependent on the dental technician’s experience and skill, and sometimes, a considerable amount of luck.
The eLAB® System was designed to bridge the gap between intuition and evidence, with the objective to turn shade matching in dentistry into a didactic exercise and to deliver predictable results.

The eLAB® system, developed by Sascha Hein, enables colour reproduction of any tooth shade on the basis of a logical, scientifically justified procedure and without the use of a shade guide. With the help of camera equipment, suitable for dental photography, polar_eyes® filter and white_balance® card, the tooth colour is determined and implemented by using the eLABor_aid® system.

With this method the dental ceramist is equipped to not only achieve highly accurate shade matches, but to explore the possibilities and also limitations of the chosen combination of framework material and ceramic system.
