Guided Surgery with CEREC

CEREC Guide 3

It is now, for the first time, possible to mill guides for Dentsply Sironas implant systems Ankylos, AstraTech and XiVE directly in your clinic. For fully guided surgery and implant placement.

CEREC Guide 2

Integrated implantology with CEREC Guide 2 enables you to surgically plan implants and implement the plan precisely using a surgical guide in a fast and cost-effective way.

CEREC Guide 3

Let us guide you to the perfect position

CEREC Guide 3 enables you to place the premium implant systems Ankylos, Astra Tech Implant System EV and Xive, from Dentsply Sirona Implants fully guided.

This means all surgical steps from soft-tissue punch to implant insertion, are performed with the guide in place.

Thereby, CEREC Guide 3 can be fast and easily produced in your practice within less than an hour, and at a very low cost.

inCoris ZI meso

For customized zirconia abutments in a single visit

  • Improved apposition on the gingiva
  • Veneering with individual crown made of e.g. Celtra Duo or CEREC Blocs C PC
  • Fits on all TiBase

Celtra Duo and CEREC Blocs C PC

FAQs on CEREC Guide 3

The following Implant systems can be chosen:
  • AstraTech Implant System EV
  • XiVE
  • Ankylos 

Only Implant sizes, of which a sleeve of the guided system is available, can be chosen. This is indicated by the sleeve symbols.

For choosing AstraTech Implant System EV, select AstraTech EV Guided Surgery in the 'Current plan's properties' menu.

For XiVE and Ankylos, select DENTSPLY Friadent ExpertEase.

No, the D1/D2 value is fixed and cannot be changed for guide sleeve of CEREC Guide 3.

Yes. The implant planning is done with guided sleeve system. Please make sure that a minimum distance of 0,5 mm is given between the outer sleeve and the neighboring teeth to ennsure stable sleeve  support for CEREC Guide 3.

No, the export option is not available yet.

The sleeve must be changed to CEREC Guide Drill Keys (CEREC Guide 2) in order to activate export. 

Then, change D1 value to an arbitrary number (e.g. 0,1 mm) to enable export options.

Please note: This is only a workaround and will be disregarded by  the CEREC Software for CEREC Guide 3.

Import planning data (CMG.DXD) into CEREC 4.6.1. to design CEREC Guide 3 (drag & drop).

CEREC Guide 3 is automatically detected and sleeve is shown with guide support. Minimum material of 0,5 mm must be given for sleeve support. Otherwise, a user notification is shown and user must update implant planning and must import planning results again.

Frequently asked questions on CEREC Zirconia meso

No. CEREC Zirconia meso cannot be used for classical meso abutments. Instead, we recommend using inCoris ZI meso. However, CEREC Zirconia meso can be reduced and veneered for esthetic anterior solutions.  

All TiBase sold by Dentsply Sirona are selectable in the software and can thus be used with the block. Titanium bases sold directly by the implant manufacturer such as Camlog, M.I.S and Straumann can not be used with CEREC Zirconia meso at the moment, but the integration is in process. Please see the overview for your respective country under the point "Appropriate implant systems for CEREC Zirconia meso".

Yes, it is planned to additionally offer a bleach shade, which can then be dyed with inCoris TZI Coloring Liquids in all 16 colors.

We recommend sealing the screw channel using the ceramic composite Ceram.X universal duo according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can find a color recommendation per block shade in the manual for CEREC Zirconia meso.


Yes, it is possible to reduce the abutment crown in the software and to veneer it with a suitable veneering ceramic according to the WAK value. Cercon® Ceram Kiss is recommended.

Yes, the products CEREC SpeedGlaze and the Celtra Universal Stains & Glaze are suitable for staining and glazing.
