The Cerec 3--a quantum leap for computer-aided restorations: initial clinical results.Quintessence Int. 2000 Nov-Dec; 31(10):699-712.QI
The Cerec 3 system simplifies and accelerates the fabrication of ceramic inlays, onlays, veneers, and quarter, half, and complete crowns for anterior and posterior teeth. Cerec 3 software simplifies occlusal and functional registration. Proper occlusion is established accurately and quickly; manual adjustment is reduced to a minimum. The separate grinding device, working true to morphologic detail and with fine surface quality, is connected to the optical unit by radio control. Equipped with a laser scanner, it can also be used for indirect application through a standard personal computer. The Cerec 3 system is network and multimedia ready and, in combination with an intraoral color videocamera or a digital radiography unit, can be used for patient education and for user training. The Cerec 3 system thus is a diagnostic, restorative, training, and documentation center for the dental practice.
