Sirona Dental Systems introduces new software developed for the inLab® CAD/CAM system. Based on Sirona’s patented Biogeneric technology, the software has been developed to substantially reduce the learning curve for inLab users. 

According to the company, the new software enables dental laboratories to create inlays and onlays more quickly and efficiently than ever before. The computer-aided design tool for the occlusal surfaces is of particular benefit to new users who have limited experience with the inLab system. Using information drawn from a library of more than 4,000 naturally adapted teeth, the Biogeneric software creates the optimal restoration for inlays and onlays, allowing laboratories to easily create sophisticated dental restorations. 

Further reducing the complexity of the CEREC method for new users, the Biogeneric tooth-modeling function creates natural occlusal surfaces. Minimal input is required from the dentist because the new software designs the occlusal surfaces automatically on the basis of the residual tooth tissue. The restoration proposal is simply adapted simultaneously to the adjacent teeth and to an optical bite registration. The restoration is then ready to be milled.

“These revolutionary software developments represent a significant advancement in CAD/CAM technology,” said Norbert Ulmer, director of dental laboratory applications for Sirona Dental Systems. “The software effortlessly restores missing tooth structure in the most natural way possible, making the process of designing highly aesthetic and functional restorations a reality for the professional as well as the novice.”
