Sirona Material

Sirona introduced its own range of machinable ceramic blocks for the CEREC and inLab CAD/CAM systems.

Made of fine-structured feldspar ceramic, the new CEREC Blocs/CEREC Blocs PC have been designed especially for inlays, onlays, veneers and crowns. With the introduction of inCoris ZI (zirconium oxide) and inCoris AL (aluminum oxide) Sirona has also extended its portfolio of sintered materials for the creation of crowns and bridge frameworks using the inLab system. The newly available inCoris TZI (Translucent Zirconium Oxide) can be used for the production of crowns and bridges on the inLab system without any additional layering.

These new Sirona materials augment the existing VITA, IVOCLAR VIVADENT and 3M ESPE products for the

CEREC und inLab CAD/CAM systems.

CEREC Blocs C / CEREC Blocs C PC

The CEREC Blocs C/CEREC Blocs C PC are made of industrially produced fine-structured feldspar ceramic. This means that the restorations are easy to polish and display outstanding enamel-like abrasion properties.

Feldspar ceramics offer convincing benefits in terms of longevity and machinability. This has been demonstrated in numerous scientific studies. To date more than million restorations have been created out of the feldspar ceramic blocks manufactured by VITA. This company is Sirona’s long-standing materials partner and manufactures the CEREC Blocs/CEREC Blocs PC.

The CEREC Blocs/CEREC Blocs PC range offers a choice of different color shades. They provide the basis for creating highly aesthetic restorations that require only a minimum of milling effort.

CEREC/inLab users will profit from the sophisticated CEREC shade selection system, which combines the advantages of the classic A-D system and the newly developed VITA 3D Master system:



CEREC Blocs C In

The esthetic interaction between chromatic dentin and the translucent incisal area in the visible anterior tooth region has previously been a limiting factor for the use of CAD/CAM systems. CEREC Blocs C In and the software algorithm set for these blocks has changed this.

The blocks consist of an inner core of highly chromatic dentin covered by a translucent layer of enamel. The dentin cores are modeled after the shape of dentin cores in natural teeth. The outer morphology of the tooth is defined by the user and a new algorithm in-tegrated in the software aids in positioning the restoration in the block.

This position is dependent on the two layers contained in the block so that the exact tooth color se-lected by the user is achieved. This allows esthetic anterior tooth restorations to be milled and, in many cases, to be placed directly without additional coloration.

CEREC Blocs C In blocks for the production of highly esthetic anterior tooth restorations

  • C stands for classic colors (A1-D4) + BL2
  • The special dentin core shape means that all mandibular and maxillary anterior teeth can be covered with a single core shape stands for integral; the block comprises a dentin core which is integrated in the enamel.
  • The new software tool for coloration renders the CEREC Blocs C In system both simple and safe.
  • The CEREC Blocs C In in the anterior tooth region are the ideal complement to the CEREC Blocs in the posterior tooth region.
  • Additional customization is possible with paints

inCoris TZI C

inCoris TZI C is a further development of the proven inCoris TZI.

The inCoris TZI C blocks consist of a pre-shaded translucent zirconium oxide material (shades: A1-D3*) which does not require the application of coloring liquids. In terms of translucency, mechanical properties, strength and thermal expansion coefficient, this material is equivalent to or superior to inCoris TZI. In addition, inCoris TZI C is available in a larger block size (“maxi M” = 65 x 40 x 22mm) which caters for virtually all restorations encountered in real-life clinical practice.

  • Pre-shaded translucent zirconium oxide
  • 10 Classic shades (A1, A2, A3, A3,5, A4, B2, B3, C2, C3, D3)
  • 3 block sizes: mono L (20/19)
  • TZI materials, inCoris TZI C can be processed using the same proven sintering program. High-speed sintering can be performed using the inFire HTC speed furnace. in all shades; medi S (40/19 )in all shades; maxi M (65/40/22) in three shades (A1-A3)
  • As in the case of the inCoris ZI and
  • Accustomed high quality

A further development of the existing inCoris TZI material, inCoris TZI C opens up new possibilities:

  • White areas attributable to the inadequate penetration of the coloring liquids no longer occur during the milling process.
  • Reliable and predictable results. Varying restoration thicknesses no longer play a role.
  • No shading variations.
  • High-strength zirconium oxide (no chipping, low failure rates in the patient’s mouth). In addition, minimum wall thicknesses can be realized.
  • Rapid fabrication of permanent crowns and bridges.

inCoris TZI C blocks offer numerous benefits. The blocks are pre-shaded, thus eliminating the need for dipping the restorations in coloring liquids and subsequent drying. This reduces the processing time by 20 minutes.

Thanks to the high-speed function of the inFire HTC speed furnace, inCoris TZI C is an interesting material for dentists, due to the fact that treatment can be completed during a single appointment.


inCoris TZI

TZI stands for translucent zirconium oxide. This new material combines high translucency with the strength of zirconium oxide and is ideal for the production of highly esthetic, fully contoured restorations, without the need for separate veneer facings. For the first time it is now possible to fabricate non-veneered all-ceramic bridges using the CEREC and inLab systems.


inCoris ZI

The inCoris ZI blocks consist of zirconium oxide and can be machined on the Sirona CAD/CAM system in order to create dental frameworks.

The range of inCoris materials embraces an optimum selection of blocks for the creation of precise all-ceramic crowns and bridge frameworks which offer outstanding biocompatibility and perfect aesthetics.

The inCoris ZI zirconium oxide blocks are available in four different shades (F0.5, F1, F2 and F3).

inCoris ZI

for inLab and inLab MC XL

The preshaded inCoris ZI zirconium oxide blocks are partially sintered. They are designed for the fabrication of crown copings and four-unit bridge frameworks (with up to two pontics) for the anterior and posterior region.

inCoris CC

inCoris CC is a so-called sintering metal based on a CoCr alloy that, like the known zirconium oxide process, is first milled while oversized and then compacted by sintering in a furnace (inFire HTC speed) under argon atmosphere.

The majority of all restorations fabricated around the world are still made of NPM. inCoris CC does not differ from the conventional materials used in laboratory routine. It can be processed as usual, the difference being that the time-consuming steps of modeling, casting, and deflasking are omitted.

It is now also possible to produce NPM frameworks with inLab and in the own laboratory with no further major investment. As such, NPM restorations can be fabricated in laboratory routine quicker, cleaner, and in a higher quality and parallel to this, the capacity of the inLab system can be even better used. Also see information on the inFire HTC speed.

NPM restorations can now be fun

  • Clean and simple
  • Fast
  • High quality
  • Added value in the laboratory
  • Wet milling
  • Up to 4-unit bridges
  • Blocks in four sizes: mono, medi, maxi S, and maxi L


The Sirona TiBase adhesive titanium bases are supplied together with an abutment screw and a compatible scan body for Bluecam. The TiBase is available for various implant systems and diameters.

The TiBase is adhesively bonded to a sintered mesostructure milled out of an inCoris ZI meso block.



In combination with a suitable scan body ScanPosts are used for intraoral optical assessment of the implant location. This makes conventional impressions using impression posts for transfer to a plaster model superfluous. ScanPosts are available for various implant systems and in various diameters.

They can be used up to 50 times. Each ScanPost is supplied together with a fixation screw.

Two different types of scan body are available, depending on the camera system (for Omnicam and Bluecam)

A TiBase with the same name extension must be used for the final restoration.

Scan bodies

ScanPost and TiBase can be used only with suitable scan bodies to optically assess the implant position. These differ according to the scanning system and the connection geometry.

Scan bodies for Bluecam are white and are compatible with the following scanning systems: inEos

X5, inEos Blue, and CEREC AC with Bluecam.

Scan bodies for Omnicam are gray and are for exclusive use with the CEREC AC. Scan bodies are available in two connection sizes (S and L). The last letter in the name of the ScanPost and TiBase designates the matching connection size (S or L). The connection size also applies to the relevant block geometry (e.g. inCoris ZI meso S or L).

All scan bodies can be disinfected and are intended for single use only.
