Color Model White Paper

Researchers develop novel hybrid workflow to create patient-specific, full-color dental restorations.

New developments in digital workflows have opened the door to unprecedented accuracy in dental restorations. Conventional ceramic press manufacturing is still the gold standard for producing resilient and aesthetically accurate restorations. Combined with the use of intraoral scanners, digital dentistry can now provide accurate recording of color, surface, and tooth structure for use in 3D printed models of the patient’s mouth. The data from these scanners can be used to produce the most accurate crowns and bridges for a patient’s esthetic treatment. 


Researchers have demonstrated that dental laboratories can achieve high realism for precision dental esthetics by combining a digital technology workflow that includes color matching data, pressed restorations, and PolyJet 3D printing technology.
