ShadeWave technology provides your dental lab the information to build a great restoration, based on photos you take with your existing dental camera. Just upload your photos and create a case. It’s easy!
ShadeWave was born out of training 1000’s of dentists worldwide.
4 Simple Steps to Successful Shade Matching
ShadeWave works with any digital camera capable of taking a clinical picture.
Create a case, upload the photos and choose a lab. The lab has instant access to the case. All communication through ShadeWave is HIPAA-compliant and secure.
The lab processes the color-corrected image. Our advanced algorithms determine shade, translucency and value.
The lab interprets the ShadeWave information into a restoration.

We have been using the latest version of ShadeWave with my lab for about 9 months. It’s a great system if your lab is on board and trained well. It doesn’t replace the talent of the ceramist – it just gives the ceramist lots of information needed to create a great result. We use it for both posterior and anterior shade matching. All the assistants know how to use it and it’s pretty foolproof from the dental office standpoint.
“I think it is absolutely fantastic! Its information at your fingertips that we have never seen in this industry before.”
“What is interesting about what you’ve done here is that you have covered both ends. You made it simple for the dentist to take a photograph and simple for the lab to map out the shade with your software. That is covering both sides of it! No one has ever done that before.”
“Color mapping has always been an art form in itself. Selecting the colors is not always an easy task. Shadewave helps eliminate the guess work. By using it has allowed me to get more accurate build ups and less cases coming back for shade modifications.”
