The eLABor_aid® system presents the culmination of years of relentless research by the Bio- Emulation Group. Through intense investigation, countless trials and close collaboration between clinical and technical experts it became possible to develop a standardised protocol for dental photography using a regular digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera, a macro flash as well as the polar_eyes® filter. The digital photograph is then processed to measure the desired shade from the computer screen. With the aid of a manufacturer specific chart, the closest dentin shade is first selected and then individually adjusted in order to achieve a shade match of high accuracy.
A test mixture is then formulated using the visual_eyes® liquid and applied on the frame work in a realistic thickness before the shade of the build-up can be either measured or even digitally tried- in. With this method the dental ceramist is equipped to not only achieve highly accurate shade matches, but to also explore the possibilities and also limitations of the chosen combination of framework material and ceramic system. The eLABor_aid® system is also suitable for the imitation of gingiva using pink ceramic.
