Due to conflicting schedules, I will not be able to make it to Dentsply Sirona World 2018.  If I were there, one of my topics would be mounting a full upper and lower arch digital scan with a bilateral buccal scan in the chairside CEREC software.  I use this approach often for appliance printed applications.

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.

Finally found a need for the Adjust Morphology feature and create a 3rd premolar rather than molar.  This feature is handy when there is not enough room for a molar morphological design due to mesial drift of distal tooth, a molar in this case, into the mesial edentulous zone.   This video tutorial will also be a unique demonstration for designing two side-by-side implants.  In this case Implant Direct Inactive 3.7 and 4.3 implants where placed using the "crown-down" technique and placed with a guide.  Virtually planned and guided implant placement can take a difficult implant and restorative situation and provide a very

When we make a focused effort in the design screen to make each stroke of the mouse count, we will become efficient and before you know it, your design speed will significantly increase.  This tutorial will introduce my three basic design steps I go through to accomplish each design step in a very efficient timeline.
