Digital Dentistry is rapidly becoming a standard procedure for state of the art dental offices and laboratories. At the current rate, digital impressions are gaining acceptance over physical impressions as the preferred choice, which will open up new possibilities for collaboration between dentists and dental technicians. CEREC Connect is a Web-based communication platform designed exclusively for CEREC dentists and Sirona inLab laboratories. The service allows CEREC dentists to eliminate physical impressions by electronically transmitting a digitally-scanned impresson to the inLab laboratory of choice. The dental technician designs the restoration on the basis of a virtual model - without the need for a conventional model. Following this, the restoration is fabricated on a computer-controlled milling unit. While digital impressions are quickly being accepted, Sirona plans to offer labs the ability to create a physical model from the CEREC digital impression in the near future. Some laboratories prefer a model; Sirona’s plan is not to insist on model-less dentistry. The next step will be to offer laboratories both options, and let them decide on their own when they're ready to transition to the digital method. CEREC Connect is the world’s largest Digital Dental Network. It connects CEREC offices and inLab laboratories from all around the globe. CEREC Connect paves the way for the "impression-free” dental practice as well as to the "model-free” dental laboratory.
