A unique and powerful approach to objective shade communication
We all have experienced those embarrassing moments in our professional lives when our shade matching skills fall well short of expectations. Re-do’s are time consuming, expensive and a frequent source of friction between the dental lab and the dental office - We have all been there. The eLAB system puts an end to all of this!
The eLAB system transforms your digital camera into an easy to use shade matching system, resulting not only in better clinical results but also in improved customer relations. With the eLAB system you can cover the entire natural tooth color spaces with only four dentin shades and three dedicated stains: red, yellow and grey.
