Sirona Introduces the New CEREC® Omnicam



Powder-Free and Provides Unique Color Capture with Detail and Precision

Charlotte, NC (August 16, 2012) – Sirona Dental Systems, the company that pioneered digital dentistry more than 27 years ago and the global number one producer of dental CAD/CAM systems, is pleased to introduce the new CEREC Omnicam.

CEREC Omnicam’s revolutionary design features a completely new, ergonomic handpiece and special optics to guarantee unsurpassed intraoral access. New ColorStreaming allows continuous capture of the oral cavity as well as displaying the 3D data in full color – an industry first. Operator convenience has been greatly improved by making the system completely powder-free while retaining Sirona’s high standards for precision.



Designed for Access
Slim, rounded camera tube allows easy rotation of the camera in the intraoral space. The tiny camera tip guarantees the best lens positioning anywhere in the mouth.

ColorStreaming for Confidence
As the camera moves over teeth, a photorealistic image is displayed in full-color with crisp clarity and impeccable detail delivering a new level of clinical confidence.

Powder-Free for Convenience
No need to apply reflective medium makes capturing images easier and faster than ever— and with Sirona’s industry-leading precision.
According to Dr. Joachim Pfeiffer, Vice President, CAD/CAM and Chief Technology Officer for Sirona Dental Systems, “The development of the CEREC Omnicam represents a technical revolution, optimally balancing the needs of perfect operator convenience in handling, with highly precise restorative outcomes. We have achieved an elusive goal by marrying the precision of the market-leading CEREC Bluecam with unsurpassed ease of use.”

CEREC Omnicam perfectly balances all requirements for a chairside CAD/CAM camera with operator convenience while introducing another Sirona first – full color. Other new features and benefits:

·       Records 2D and 3D data, the first intraoral camera to do so
·       Captures half-arch and full-arch impressions with industry-leading speed
·       Anti-shake features automatically eliminate substandard images
·       Provides a uniform field of illumination for increased precision
