German term or phrase: Opaquer- und Dentinmassen
Text about dental replacement and providing the appropriate colour to match with existing teeth. This sentence is giving me jip also! "Zur Umsetzung der Farbe und Farbstruktur bedient sich der Techniker der Opaquer- und Dentinmassen der jeweiligen Farbe, und schichtet diese und entsprechende Zusatzmassen nach der Anleitung eines Top-Keramikers." Hope you can help, cheers, Nick

Explanation:
Opaque (note: not transparent)
Dentin=as previously defined acc. to Taber's
-massen=in this case "material" i.e. dentin materials
You may also call it in this case "dentoid"=resembling dentin, because after all it deals with reconstruction
