Dentsply Sirona is announcing its latest upgrade for both Connect and CEREC Software, giving users new functionalities and even better performance*. Patient communication is improved with a new visualization step in the model phase. The upgrade can also contribute an improvement for the benefit of Primescan users. New firmware makes the intraoral scanner twice as fast, provides a high-performing scanning experience and gives users access to new workflows and even better usability*.

The latest upgrade of the Connect and CEREC Software and improved firmware provides Primescan and CEREC users with additional options for making treatment more efficient, faster and more convenient with digital workflows. Primescan intraoral scanner’s latest enhancements optimize performance as described as follows: Through its enhanced firmware, Primescan captures up to 1.5 million 3D data points per second. With these enhancements, Primescan is significantly smoother and twice as fast, making it again easier to scan successfully even for relatively inexperienced users*.

Connect SW 5.2 now supports bridges on implants
This Connect software update brings new possibilities to the implant workflows. Due to Primescan’s very high level of accuracy, dentists can now perform long span implant supported bridges, for example “all-on-4” or “all-on-6” cases, depending on the individual case. This means a new indication for practitioners working with Connect Software.  

CEREC Software 5.2: New features and benefits 
Important, user-friendly changes and enhancements have also been introduced in CEREC Software 5.2. On top of being able to view the model directly without restoration selected to facilitate communication with patients, the entire CEREC Guide workflow has undergone improvements. The mode "Full Range Dynamic Occlusion" was introduced for the articulation calculation. This includes a wider range of lower jaw movement in the calculations and thus helps to detect more functional occlusal interferences*. 

CEREC Primemill users can benefit from the software upgrade as well. Fast mode is now available for crowns made of IPS e.max CAD     (Ivoclar Vivadent). Additionally, posterior and anterior crowns, direct screw-retained crowns, inlays and veneers can now regularly be produced using the Extra Fine grinding mode to create very smooth and very detailed restorations. Chairside dentistry therefore takes another step forward with the CEREC Software 5.2. 

“Primescan firmware enhancements make the digital workflow even faster and easier than before*,” explained Dr. Alexander Völcker, Group Vice President of Global Digital Solutions Marketing at Dentsply Sirona. “In addition to significantly increased speed, the smoothness of the scan  has also been improved*. For clinicians working with Primescan in their practice, these improvements regularly mean more efficient workflows, even greater reliability and, at the same time, a very comfortable patient experience.”
