Sinter and Glaze with CEREC SpeedFire
Full contour zirconia restorations in one session.

CEREC SpeedFire is the smallest and fastest sintering furnace on the market and can sinter a crown in typically 10–15 minutes. The strengths of full contour zirconia can thus also be used for chairside treatment. If required, a glaze can be applied with the CEREC SpeedGlaze that can be fired in just a few minutes in the CEREC SpeedFire. Then the restoration is ready to be placed into the patient’s mouth.

"CEREC SpeedFire It is the only dental furnace on the market that combines the sintering and glazing processes in one device."


CEREC Zirconia Highlights

Zirconium oxide is a high-performance material in great demand, which CEREC combines with a workflow optimally matched to the material. It has a high degree of flexural strength and is biocompatible, allowing tooth-conserving preparations for fully anatomical restorations. CEREC makes fully anatomical zirconium oxide restorations in a single visit possible – making restorations easier, faster, and more economical than ever.

  • Minimally invasive: Full contour zirconia restorations require a lower wall thickness and less reduction in tooth structure for full strength.
  • Strength: Full contour zirconia ensures that you and your patients receive long-lasting restorations.
  • Perfect fit: 25% larger pre-sintered state yields highly precise margins and occlusal surfaces.
  • Everything under control

With CEREC, you are 100% in control of creating restorations and ensuring their quality – now also for full-contour zirconium restorations. The CEREC Zirconia workflow allows you to step in before the restoration is glazed or inserted. That saves time, it might save the patient another appointment and prevents arduous grinding and costly intraoral polishing.

  • Tooth-conserving preparation

The high strength of CEREC Zirconia benefits both dentist and patient. Restorative treatment is even possible in confined spaces and when replacing metal restorations, hardly any of the old preparations have to be removed. Preparations preserve tooth substance and can be cemented conventionally when fitted.

  • Safety through strength and fitting accuracy

CEREC Zirconia is milled oversized and then densely sintered in the CEREC SpeedFire to its final size. This leads to precise edges and a detailed occlusion. A subsequent glaze firing brings the restoration to a high gloss. CEREC Zirconia stands for high strength – thin wall thicknesses can be processed. Chipping is eliminated and of course bridges can also be made.

  • Efficient and simple workflow

30 years of CAD/CAM experience now make it possible to bring full contour zirconia restorations into the practice. The pre-shaded CEREC Zirconia material (colors A1–D3 of the VITA Classical A1–D4® color system), dry milling with the CEREC grinding and milling unit, and the extremely short sintering cycles of the new CEREC SpeedFire – everything is designed for time savings and simplicity. But what makes it special is the combination of different innovations. Only the combination allows a single-visit-treatment with full contour Zirconia, which we call the CEREC Zirconia workflow.

4 steps to a full contour zirconium oxide restoration:

1. Scan

2. Design

3. Grinding/Milling

NEW: Dry milling

The CEREC grinding and milling unit and CEREC Software are optimally matched. Milling the full contour zirconia restoration is extremely precise, giving the restorations smooth surfaces, smooth margins, and very fine fissures.

4. Sintering & Finalizing

NEW: Only for zirconium oxide

Full zirconia restorations are sintered and glazed chairside in the compact CEREC SpeedFire. The induction technology allows unmatched short sintering and firing times. Operation is very intuitive and simple.
