Shade Detection with CEREC Omnicam


Jun 1, 2017

Open Scan Export


Mar 1, 2015

Digital impressions with CEREC Omnicam can be submitted for therapy with clear aligners (e.g. Invisalign®)

Information on the feature "Shade Detection"

Shade Detection

The feature Shade Detection allows you to analyze the shade of any tooth based on the Omnicam scan. This gives you objective support and more certainty when selecting the suitable restoration shade.

You will find the shade analysis in the analysis tools section:

1. When the model is complete on the screen, open the tab on the bottom left to go to the "Edit model" step.

2. Click on "Analyzing tools" and the "Shade Analysis" field to start the feature.

3. Click on the middle of a tooth with the cursor to analyze its shade. Select the radius in a way that the adjacent teeth are not included and that you do not measure too close to the neck or cutting edge of the tooth. Correct shade analysis is not guaranteed in the gray areas of the model due to insufficient scan information.

Check if your camera can be used for Shade Detection

Yes, your Omnicam can be used for Shade Detection from CEREC SW 4.5.

No, unfortunately your Omnicam cannot be used for Shade Detection.

In case you are interested in this feature, there is the possibility of replacing your Omnicam. Please contact your dealer. Nevertheless, you can use all other features of the CEREC SW 4.5.

The serial number you entered could not be found. Please recheck the number.

Necessary to use the feature: Color calibration

Before the feature “Shade Detection” can be used, the CEREC Omnicam must be color-calibrated at the beginning. The color calibration kit can be purchased from your authorized CEREC dealer (REF number: 66 30 714). In the adjacent video we show you how to perform the color calibration and then use the color analysis.


Please note that the color calibration set
  • has a maximum shelf life of only 2 years. The expiration date can be found on the bottom of the color calibration set case. Due to previous storage, it is possible that its shelf life has decreased to less than two years.
  • can only be used for one year after opening the case. Write the date on which it was opened with a waterresistant pen on the case lid after “Opened on _________” and do not use it again after one year.

After expiration of both periods, the color calibration set should no longer be used.

Export options with CEREC Omnicam

Expanded treatment options thanks to intuitive interfaces

Not least because of the possibility of open scan data export in STL format, the CEREC Omnicam offers you not only the classic chairside workflow but also various export options for more flexibility in working with your CEREC system.

Design Service for CEREC Users
