Our dental adhesive options are at a point in time that we can be assured low probability of post cementation sensitivity and strong bonding properties. This video will review how Dr. Klim addresses adhesive protocols when the margins are subgingival.
Materials used in

This case review will emphasize the CEREC software flow for an anterior cantilever bridge. There are times a cantilever anterior bridge works out the best for the case. This is one of those case reviews. In fact, zirconia was required due to a more conservative preparation needed on the abutment canine. View Video

Choosing the right e.max block shade for e.max ceramic restorations can be uncertain. Well, Ivoclar has solved this dilemma by introducing the IPS e.max Navigation App. I have found the App recommended ceramic shade color to be right on. I have modified one measurement though. Choose ceramic thickness at the incisal or cusp location of the preparation. View Video

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. View Video

Texturing anterior restorations provide the finishing fingerprint for exceptional harmony and blend. This video is one of many on this site about texturing. The closer to the midline, the more important the contouring and texturing becomes. Let's have some fun learning! View Video

IPS Ivocolor is a universal stains and glaze assortment for the individualized staining and characterization of ceramic materials. The range of products has been coordinated with the layering, press and CAD ceramics from Ivoclar Vivadent and the zirconium oxides from Wieland Dental and can be used regardless of the CTE of the ceramic. Due to the optimized sinter temperature of the newly developed glass, optimum esthetic results can be achieved irrespective of the ceramic substrate.
The newly developed composition of the pastes was optimized with regard to the application behaviour and the firing results. The gel-type structure of

With all the new zirconia brands entering the market, it will be imperative to know the brand and particular strength metrics. Prep design and reduction indications will be all over the board based on the zirconia translucency and flexural strength. For the more conservatively prepared restoration, the zirconia used will need a flexural strength greater than 1000 MPa. This video will address the prepping metrics and protocols for the high strength zirconia brands.
