Sirona Connect for the dental lab

With Sirona Connect your dental lab profits from an innovative method to process precise digital impressions. This technique with the inLab system is easily independently integrated into the CAD/CAM workflow of your lab and is cost effective.

As an inLab laboratory you can directly process digital impressions over Sirona Connect and therefore become a coveted partner. Every dental practice that wishes to produce digital impressions via Sirona Connect could be your next customer. In future new orders are received via Sirona Connect directly on your PC. For you this means that you simply receive the data, design and mill.

Furthermore, Sirona Connect offers you further the possibility to directly and quickly clarify the model data received, order data and delivery schedule. This immediate feedback to the practice saves time and prevents unnecessary corrections at a later point of time.

Benefits for the dental laboratory

Ideal link to the increasing level of digitalization in the dental practice

Precise production of tooth restorations using digital intraoral impression data

Time savings due to immediate and direct coordination with the practitioner during patient consultation

Economic scope thanks to flexible production options

Potential for optimization in terms of logistics costs, complaints, hygiene, model-free production options

The digital workflow with Sirona Connect

As a dental laboratory, you benefit from the digital workflow with Sirona Connect. Direct, free data transmission is more precise, more hygienic and faster than any impression tray. You can concentrate on your core competency: the production of high-quality restorations. Open interface leaves you free to handle your manufacturing processes.
Scan. Check. Send.
Receive and transmit data via the Sirona Connect Portal.
Design with inLab SW, produce with inLab or other CAD/CAM production unit and finalize.

Flexible Design

After receipt and review of the Sirona Connect orders, the dental laboratory can get to work on the design using the inLab CAD software right away. As an alternative, the 3D model data set can be exported to another CAD software for design via the optional inLab STL interface.

Design Service for CEREC Users

A large percentage of digital impressions via Sirona Connect are created in the numerous CEREC user practices. For complex and more aesthetically demanding orders, this allows additional dental expertise to be used. But it does not always have to be the finished restoration that leaves the laboratory. With the digital Design Service laboratories can receive the intraoral data set via the Sirona Connect portal, design the desired work with the inLab software and send the design data set back to the CEREC practice for finalizing. A digital service that can save valuable treatment time in the practice and reward dental know-how.

Flexible model production

Given the continuous development of high-quality CAD/CAM materials for monolithically produced restorations, a physical working model is already a thing of the past for many digital impressions.

If necessary, the 3D model data received can be sent either to the central model production, infiniDent, or to an alternative model production (e.g. 3D printer) via the STL data export.

Production with inLab

Two productive production units are available for a consistent CAD/CAM process within the inLab system - free and for a comprehensive range of materials, open and productive:

inLab MC X5

5 axes, dry and wet processing, milling and grinding, block and round processing

inLab MC XL

4 axes, wet processing, milling and grinding, block processing, high-speed manufacturing

Alternative production

The inLab software is open. This means that directly after the receipt of data and STL export, the dental laboratory can proceed with production using different CAD software. Or the design is first produced using the inLab CAD software and then exported to the production unit of a third-party provider.

Alternatively, central production with infiniDent can be used: For finishing both inLab design data directly from the inLab software as well as data via STL transmission from another CAD software.
