3 way dimmer switch

Im trying to install a dimmer switch. The original switch has a ground wire. A white wire and two gray wires. One if the gray is labeled the common wire. However my dimmer has a green, black, red , and yellow wire. I know green goes with ground and I know black goes with the hot gray one. But where do the yellow and red wires go? I only have gray and white to attach them to??? So confused
