The CEREC 3 acquisition unit incorporates a mobile PC that has been specially designed and approved for medical applications. The PC is equipped with a flat panel monitor, a high-precision 3-D measuring camera, and a microprocessor-controlled image capture card. The card processes the images from the 3-D measuring camera in real time.
CEREC 3D Software is Windows – based and 3-dimensional. With “what you see is what you get” realism, you have the control and vision you’ve never had with any other restorative method. CEREC 3D software allows you to see the preparation and restoration from all angles. You can remove mesial and distal neighbors to ensure that proximal contacts are precisely correct.
The milling unit is capable of producing single-unit restorations. The acquisition unit may be used for other tasks during the milling process. The milling unit communicates with the acquisition unit via cable or radio signals. Using radio communication allows the milling unit to be installed in a wide variety of locations: in the treatment room for easy access, in a corner or niche to save space, or in the waiting area as a fascinating eye-catcher.
The diamond burrs in the milling unit are designed for the shortest possible milling times. The conical burr allows creation of highly detailed occlusal surfaces. Performed symmetrically, the milling process ensures that the ceramic materials are machined with utmost care and precision.
