Cerec Goes inLab—The Metamorphosis of the System

A. Kurbad

In spite of its underlying conception as being a chairside procedure, the Cerec procedure is now establishing itself in the dental laboratory as well. Based on hard core infiltration ceramic technology, it allows the production of crown caps and bridge frames held with a single attachment. The scan machine of the existing Cerec product family forms the technical basis of the new Cerec inLab instrument. Numerous modifications have been carried out. In addition, not only the magnification of the implementable workpiece size, but also the changes in the scan process have been modified, which allows a higher resolution and the introduction of a new, very delicate milling bur. The software has been designed to be very user-friendly; the design of caps and frames has been greatly simplified. Without basic changes to the clinical process used for metal-ceramic, the smooth transition to full-ceramic restorations is possible for the dentist. The distinct separation of Cerec units for the dentist and Cerec inLab as a laboratory machine makes sense simply because of the high proportion of dental-technical steps. The new instrument can be seen as a further step toward the integration of CAD/CAM technology in the field of dentistry, of equal benefit to dentists, dental technicians, and patients.
