3Shape’s new RealColor™ Technology in the TRIOS® Color digital impression-taking solution facilitates the creation of scan images in the appearance of real teeth and gingiva. The natural looking colors provide an excellent scanning experience, and make it easy for dentists to distinguish between the different types of restorative materials (metals, enamel, composite, etc.), recognize bleeding areas, see color transitions on teeth, and easily identify margin lines with enhanced detail.

In combination with 3Shape’s established TRIOS® Ultrafast Optical Sectioning Technology, TRIOS® Color represents a high performance color scanning solution that is very fast, very accurate, and very easy-to-use.
