Setting up the CEREC software for a seamless smooth design flow is defined by two preparation factors.  This video will convey my take on prepping for success and is the core of my CEREC clinical success.

Primescan provides the dream scanning situation for inlays and onlays.  The best we have had yet in the years of CEREC upgrade scanning devices.  There is a caveat about which version of the CEREC software can best handle the two-piece implant restoration in the premolar or anterior zone of the mouth.  In the opinion of Dr. Klim, it is the 4.52 software which means we still need the Omnicam. This case review video will illustrate the planning and implementation to restoring an implant restoration on a non-ideal placed implant and creating the illusion of a smaller mesial-distal tooth using the combo of the Primescn and Omnicam.  To

Here is a question I often hear, "how do I deal with e.max binding after crystallization"?  I have seen this issue discussed in several FaceBook group threads.  This video will share my take on this issue and provide a few pointers on how to deal with the e.max binding issue if that is happening in your clinical theater.

This coming fall, I will be adding a CEREC Rehab Channel to this site.  It will present a step-by-step approach start to finish using the CEREC Primescan digital platform.  For those with Omnicam, the 4.6 software will be the same applicable workflow.  This video is a rehab overview in response to a question posted on the Ask Dr. Klim Forum.

Texturing and luster polishing a ceramic or composite will create the finishing touch for restorative blend harmony. Each case is often unique. In CAD/CAM e.max dentistry, we shape and texture before crystallization.  This works most of the time, however, occasionally when fitting the ceramic in the mouth, further texture and shape tweaking are desired.  This video will review the burs and polishing for providing texture and luster polish on a crystallized e.max restoration.

This video shares my passion for why I love providing online CEREC education.  I have been so blessed by making a decision 15 years ago to integrate CEREC into my clinical theater.  Fast forward to the latest Primescan!  It is hard to believe how this restorative digital journey has evolved to now impacting a significant part of my daily clinical chairside care.

This is the second part video for no prep veneers with CEREC.  This video will emphasize how to set the case up and assure patient emotional closure for the no prep or minimal prep.  It is good to understand the shade and shape limitations with a conservative approach and being able to identify those cases that will result in a successful outcome before the treatment is started.

I have had my hands on the Primescan and it is the next cornerstone for the dental digital platform.  Having used most of the scanners on the market today, the Primescan is a home run for a full arch scan, edentulous rigid and the palate. Excellent for digital and printed study models. Very accurate and intuitive to use.  

Though I have been pleased with Omnicam, it is more of a quadrant capturing system though I have used it for the full arch, it is not as intuitive and more technique sensitive. What the Primescan has to offer is an upgrade image capturing system and the efficient way it compresses the data.  This will provide for

The Extra Fine mill will provide a "pressable" margin and milled restoration.  This video will explain how to set up the bur sets and clinical indications for the extra fine (EF) mill.  This is one feature with the Omnicam and Primescan CEREC systems I could not practice without!
