    Powder-free scanning

    CEREC Omnicam is optimized for powder-free scanning of natural tooth structures and gingiva. Simply place the camera over the relevant area and the scan starts automatically. The elimination of a powder coating means that the scanning process is easier to learn. Full-arch and half-arch scans can now be performed more conveniently and quickly than ever before.

    Unrivaled handling

    CEREC Omnicam sits perfectly in the user's hand. Thanks to the slimline design and the compact camera tip, scanning the posterior teeth presents no problems. The rounded outer contours ensure that it is easy to rotate. Regardless of whether the patient is sitting upright or reclining, you can scan the upper and lower jaws ergonomically without having to adjust your natural working posture.

    Seamless scanning process

    Simply move the camera head closely over the teeth in a single flowing process, and the data is generated successively into a 3D model. The seamless scanning process delivers an impressive depth of field. What's more, you can interrupt and resume the scan at any time.

    Precise 3D scans in color

    It is impressive to see the 3D model displayed in full color on the monitor, as the various surfaces are all shown in their natural shades. With this direct and realistic feedback, you are able to easily navigate your way around the oral cavity and distinguish between amalgam, gold and composite. Clinically, it also provides a clear differentiation between gingiva and the preparation margin.

    Effective communication with patients

    CEREC Omnicam offers another decisive benefit: In the patient counseling mode, you can record video clips and present them directly to the patient. The lifelike visualization of the teeth and gingiva helps the patient better understand your therapy proposals, and the need for them to accept the treatment.

    Automatic image capture

    The CEREC Bluecam acquires a series of single images, which are then computed with great precision in order to create a virtual 3D model. The camera automatically detects the right moment to trigger the exposure.


    Shake-free images

    The short capture time of the CEREC Bluecam prevents any blurring. In addition, the built-in shake detection system ensures that images are acquired only when the camera is held absolutely still. The CEREC software then automatically selects the optimum image data for the 3D model.


    Outstanding depth of field

    You can place the CEREC Bluecam either directly on the tooth, with the aid of the camera support, or capture the images leaving a small clearance between the camera and tooth surface. In both cases, the parallel light beam and the extensive depth of field ensure excellent image quality and ease of use.
