The CEREC® Acquisition Center Powered by Bluecam is a highly beneficial CAD/CAM unit used in the generation of patient restorations. This cutting-edge technology makes it possible for dentists to acquire a digital impression of the teeth, which contributes to maximum accuracy and exceptionally fitting restoration. The Bluecam is a hand-held light emitting diode that snaps images of the teeth and gums with little intervention. The light is simply held in place, and the Bluecam automatically obtains images when they come into focus. The CEREC Acquisition Center with Bluecam is among the most highly advanced chairside CAD/CAM technology available, taking just 40 seconds to capture a half arch and 2 minutes for a full arch impression.
