Sometimes it happens, software crash! These are issues we occasionally need to work through, particularly with new equipment or software rollouts. There is no exception for Primescan. This video is about one of those incidents. I really had to go after due diligence to save the case. Fortunately, when I do a CEREC workflow with multiple units or that is unique, I have a habit of saving the case (Save AS) before starting the software design flow. Having more than one file for a case can save the day!

Even with a fully automated model screen, there are four checks I use before proposing to assure restorative fit. This video will share my model screen hacks to save the day. CEREC 4.61 and 5.0 software versions are the same, just different graphics interphase. The principles of this video apply to the 4.61 software version as well.
- Bite Registration
- Model Axis
- Insertion Axis

Learn the five factors to nailing occlusion in CEREC. Controlling occlusion on my restorations is one of the main reasons why I like chairside CAD/CAM. There is an abundance of online training videos posted at the kliminstitute.com website. For those that desire efficient access for learning for CEREC chairside CAD/CAM, this site is created for you. Check out the video Klim Institute Video Sample Room.

View New Online Training CEREC Content - New Content Link. Are we able to machine thin feather margins with CEREC without chipping? Oh yes, we can! In fact, I am going to make a quality statement. We can mill a "pressable" margin with the MC XL using the EF bur system. This video will review the clinical criteria for applying a thin margin to optimize the aesthetic results.

Love the thin milled CAD/CAM margin when there is adequate enamel on the cervical margins. My presentation at Dentsply Sirona World 2017 was about aesthetic emotional closure and finishing the thin feather margin with the CEREC system. This video will cover my parameters and finishing technique.

The Anatomical and Circular Shape Tools take morphological alterations to a new level of simplicity and speed in CEREC 4.4. This is my favorite tool for aligning cusps, incisal edges, and cervical emergence appeal. We often do not need to make significant changes to our proposals with the current state of the software. But when you do, the Shape Tool is one of our golden assets for simplistic design.Read more
