Sintering and Glazing with CEREC CEREC SpeedFire

Full contour zirconia restorations in one session

CEREC SpeedFire is the smallest and fastest sintering furnace on the market and can typically sinter a crown in 10 to 15 minutes. The advantages 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.
Besides CEREC Zirconia, CEREC SpeedFire can as well process partner materials, such as IPS e.max CAD (Ivoclar Vivadent) or Suprinity PC (VITA Zahnfabrik).

Orders sent automatically

The CEREC software sends the order with all the necessary information to the furnace.

Induction technology

allows unparalleled short sintering and firing times.

Just 10–15 minutes

typically required for sintering a full-contour zirconia crown.

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

Frequently Asked Questions regarding sintering and glazing with CEREC

How does sintering work?

During sintering, fine-grained ceramic or metallic materials are heated up at a temperature below the melting temperature of the main components. The shape of the workpiece remains intact. The material condenses and shrinks. A green body is formed which solidifies by temperature. The sintered product only then gets its final properties such as hardness, strength or temperature conductivity. The sintering shrinkage is taken into account during the construction of the restoration – the workpiece is milled larger by the shrinkage factor.

How does sintering work with the CEREC SpeedFire?

The induction furnace CEREC SpeedFire combines the processes of sintering and glazing in one compact, user-friendly device. This makes it possible to use all the strengths of zirconium dioxide also for a chairside treatment.The CEREC SpeedFire reaches a maximum heating rate of 300 ° C per minute – no preheating or holding temperatures are necessary. Its induction technology ensures a perfectly homogeneous temperature distribution.

The extremely short sintering times are determined by the dry milling of the pre-sintered material. A drying process of several hours is not necessary. Its dimensions make the CEREC SpeedFire a compact device that fits in any practice.

Which materials can be processed in the CEREC SpeedFire?

CEREC SpeedFire can process CEREC Zirconia as well as CEREC Zirconia meso, CELTRA DUO, and all CEREC Blocs.  Furthermore, the furnace is authorised to process IPS.emax CAD (by Ivoclar Vivadent) and VITA Suprinity (by VITA Zahnfabrik).

The final restoration in just a few steps

  1. Spare your patients the discomfort of a conventional impression tray. Use the CEREC Omnicam, our small powder-free color camera, for precise 3D images in natural color. New: Use the Open Scan Export to easily export your scanned cases as STL files.

  2. After analyzing the complete scan, the CEREC software generates outstanding restoration proposals. This takes you to the production stage faster. You benefit from the simple and visually appealing user interface.

  3. The CEREC grinding and milling unit and CEREC software are optimally matched. Milling/grinding the (solid zirconia) restoration design is extremely precise, giving the restorations smooth surfaces and edges and very fine fissures.

  4. Full-contour zirconia restorations are sintered and glazed chairside in the compact CEREC SpeedFire. The induction technology allows unparalleled short sintering and firing times.
