CEREC AC and SIROLaser Advance win 2009 Good Design award

Awards and accolades CEREC

Sirona's CEREC AC and SIROLaser Advance have been awarded the 2009 Good Design Award for excellent product concept and appearance. The two products were designed by collaboration between Sirona and the Germany-based Puls Design. The Good Design award is awarded by The Chicago Athenaeum - the Museum of Architecture and Design together with The European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.


The CEREC AC digital impression unit sets the standard for precision, speed and ease of use in dental CAD/CAM technology. With the AC, the dentist can choose to create the restoration chairside with a CEREC milling unit, or send a digital model to the laboratory for offsite production.

The SIROLaser Advance dental soft tissue laser combines state-of-the-art laser technology with outstanding portability, ergonomics and user-friendliness. The colour touchscreen, clearly structured menus and self-explanatory interface provide the ideal basis for easy operation. The SIROLaser Advance enables clinicians to perform a multitude of soft tissue applications.

Other Sirona products that recently won design awards include the:

  • Teneo treatment center won the "iF gold award" in 2009 for outstanding design;
  • MultiMotion headrest won the iF product design award in 2008;
  • Galileos 3D X-ray system won the iF product design award in 2008;
  • PerioScan ultrasonic scaler was selected by the French dental industry federation as the "innovation of the year"; and
  • CEREC MC XL (2007), SIROPure handpiece range (2006) and InEos scanner (2005) won the prestigious red dot design awards.

Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr. Good Design bestows international recognition upon the world's most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary and innovative product concepts, invention and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered ordinary product and consumer design.
