“This is much more than an upgrade,” noted Roddy MacLeod, vice president of CAD/CAM for Sirona. “This is a major re-engineering of the Cerec software platform.”
The new Cerec 4.0 features the following:
Multiple restoration design. This feature enables users to work on as many different restorations as they want, at the same time. Restorations can also be designed in different modes.
Work directly on the tooth. Design tools can now be executed directly on the tooth when performing functions such as adding or removing material, rotating or positioning the restoration, or expanding or reducing tooth size.
Intuitive workflow. This feature lets operators know exactly where they are in the design process and alerts them about the next step to come.
Streamlined restoration design. At the bottom of the Cerec 4.0 design window, each step is clearly defined, showing the operator the current step as well as which step came before and which step comes next in the process. Going back and forth between steps does not undo previous design steps.
