Open discussions with CEREC followers from the public will be made available through live-stream feed and the audience onsite in Dubai.

Our panelists are preparing for the delegates. Dr. Todd Ehrlich, who is using CEREC for a long time, said: “It is truly powerful this idea of a one visit dentistry – it’s awesome! The Omnicam from Sirona is by far the greatest invention in dentistry today. I love using this thing every single day.” And his suggestion: “Make sure you get a good demo of it – you are going to be fascinated how easy this camera really works.” You can see his whole practical presentation about what the Omnicam can do on

The evolution of CEREC technology has been progressing and forever changing the lives of people. 29 years ago when CEREC was first introduced into the dental society it was only to carve the basic inlay and onlay restorations. Today with the combinational use of technology with CEREC Omnicam, the digital imprisoning has recreated dentistry to become simple, accurate, and cost effective. Who would have ever imagined that throughout the years dental techniques would become extremely high tech and evolve from the simple onlay restoration to now the most sophisticated implant restorations being created!

CEREC onlay is one of the most common indications for patient restoration – be it on a vital or root-canal treated teeth. The sheer quantity and frequency of these procedures may result in a large number of errors unless one is intimately familiar with all the strengths and weaknesses of the used work-protocol and applied materials. Dr Josef Kunkela will focus on detailed workflow in his table clinic presentation on 12 September “CEREC Guide work flow & CEREC Abutments; Smile Design work flow, Digital Face Bow and Virtual Articulator”.

Almost 30 years ago, the first Chairside Indirect Ceramic Restorations were introduced; a posterior tooth Bonded Ceramic Inlay was digitally imaged, designed, and manufactured using CEREC Chairside CAD/CAM equipment. Nowadays, the system is capable to digitally produce almost every type of single tooth restorations as well as bridges both on natural teeth and implants.

Dr Munir Silwadi with his table clinic presentation “Chairside Indirect Veneers, Inlays, and Onlays: A – Z” will make a demonstration on models created out of actual cases. Participants will be able to use the full capabilities of the system to practice all steps required to produce and bond Veneers and Partial Crowns, especially to restore Endodontically treated teeth.
