CEREC Software 5.1 - Simplicity, Speed, Flexibility

Using artificial intelligence, CEREC SW 5.1 supports restoration design better than ever before.

Thanks to its high level of automation, it reduces the required input to a minimum. This saves time and lets you move to production faster. Benefit from the simple, clearly structured and visually appealing user interface which is operated via touch screen or touch pad.   

Overview of the benefits

Optimized for Windows 10 and the new hardware generation with Primescan and Omnicam

Improvements of stability and performance for Omnicam users

Double buccal bite

Improved initial proposals thanks to artificial intelligence which is trained by real patient cases

Artificial intelligence calculates the model axis and preparation margins as well as the position of the scanbody

Indications are automatically recognized and selected

Further improved automatic removal of artefacts

It only takes 5 clicks to create a finished restoration

Further improved user interface is easy to operate

Performance Upgrade for Omnicam

  • Improved scan accuracy with Omnicam (Study and Ender et al.)
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Improved calculation time
  • Automatic artifact removal
  • Fast 5-clicks-concept
  • STL files can be exported

The new Dentsply Sirona Software Generation 5 runs on Windows 10. In order to benefit from Software Generation 5, a hardware performance upgrade might be necessary. Depending on the hardware generation, different Performance Upgrades are available.

Please check which Performance Upgrade you need by using our Upgrade Advisor.

The new features in detail

Improved automatic calculation of the Preparation Margin

As a user, you are supported by the automatic calculation of the preparation margin on the basis of artificial intelligence, to achieve the restoration results after five clicks. A sufficiently large scanning range is important for this. The suggestion can be adjusted manually at any time.

Acquisition Phase CEREC SW 5.1

Acquisition Phase

  • Performance and stability improvements for Primescan and Omnicam
  • Double buccal bite now also with Omnicam
  • Automatic artifact removel now also with Omnicam
Draw Preparation Margin, CEREC SW 5.1

Usability Improvements

  • Switch between manual and auto prep margin tool via footswitch
  • Remove or recalculate automatic prep / scan body proposal
  • 5 Restorations shown in step menu
  • Touchscreen and touchpad actions decoupled
  • Less tool wheel pop-up during design
  • Sound after manufacturing is finished

Optimized Biojaw Algorithm with AI

Through the further development of the Biojaw Algorithm, supported by artificial intelligence, you get a distinctly improved initial proposal with regard to function and aesthetics. The minimal wall thickness is more accurately maintained and is marked red occlusally in case the opposing jaw bites on the minimal body. This enables a better control of the occlusal situation.

Anatomic Connectors

With the function “Anatomic Connector” you can create the interdental spaces and realize the natural tooth shape in bridges for more aesthetic results.

Seat Positioning, CEREC SW 5.1

Live Image depending on Seat Position

Adjust the position of the user to the seating position of the patient.

For this, the alignment of the upper jaw and lower jaw on the screen and the direction of movement for the live image are defined. These comply with the user’s view of the patient’s upper and lower jaw.

Seamless connection to inLab Software 19

For the design and manufacture of complex and time-consuming work by dental technicians in the practice laboratory, the data exchange is simpler than ever before: With the help of the DXD format, scan and design data can quickly be exchanged between CEREC Software, Connect Software and inLab Software.

How can data in DXD format be passed on?

There are no restrictions for the passing on of data. The data transfer can occur over the internal practice network as well as over the USB-stick or online portals for dissemination of data.


Which data can be transferred?

All restoration data, incl. preparation margin, tooth color up to complete design data. Reimport into the CEREC Software is also possible and also the local adjustment of the design.


When to choose which transmission mode:

Within the local network, e.g. in the practice laboratory, the DXD format is recommended since no Internet connection is required for passing on data. For exchange with commercial inLab laboratories and independent laboratories that are registered there, the Connect software is recommended. With independent laboratories that do not wish to be connected to the Connect Case Center, the STL-Format can be selected for exporting.


Additional Changes

From inLab SW 18 onwards, in addition to laboratory devices, the CEREC MC XL Premium Package can now also be controlled.
