With a new Shade Detection tool, the latest Sirona Connect software supports dentists in selecting the suitable shade for a restoration.
Sirona Connect has always stood for comfortable, digital intraoral impressions in the dental practice and the quick and secure transfer of data to the dental laboratory. And with growing success, up to 2016, more than 1 million dental restorations were made using Sirona Connect. Dentsply Sirona has now enhanced the No. 1 in digital lab connections with the latest Sirona Connect software 4.5 update. Additional software services and new portal functions offer advantages for dentists and dental technicians.
Sirona Connect is increasingly used in practices and labs for transferring the impression data to the dental lab, allowing dentists to provide their patients a modern practice concept, take impressions quickly and comfortably thanks to intraoral scanning, and ensure faster overall treatment. Sirona Connect benefits the dental lab with direct connection to the practice and quick and secure transfer of digital impression and order data. In addition, Sirona Connect reportedly saves the practice and lab valuable time by enabling the immediate exchange of information during the patient's visit.
Sirona Connect SW 4.5 with enhanced features
With the new Shade Detection tool for the CEREC Omnicam, the latest Sirona Connect software is said to analyze the scan and indicate the tooth color as a VITA* Classic or VITA* 3D Master shade. This function supports dentists in selecting the suitable shade for the restoration.
For even more flexibility, digital intraoral impressions can be made for Dentsply Sirona or third-party implant systems and different scan bodies can be used.
Sirona Connect SW 4.5 also reportedly allows the practice to make an open scan export of the model data in STL format for direct transfer to the lab's CAD software.
There is another interesting enhancement for Sirona Connect labs. For the first time, they can create a customized lab profile on the Sirona Connect portal and show offers for appointments, materials, degrees of refinement, special services and much more for the individual lab. This gives Sirona Connect dentists an optimum, customer-friendly overview of the range of services and saves them time when ordering from a lab.
The new Sirona Connect SW 4.5 is available to all Sirona Connect users with CEREC Omnicam, CEREC Bluecam, and APOLLO DI as a free auto-update or as a download at www.dentsplysirona.com.
