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

It is so important to completely listen to our patients when they talk.  This video case review documents how the patient was right and I was wrong after 30 years.  Thanks to chairside CAD/CAM and multi-Empress, I was finally able to get it right. Incisal Variation Tool featured in the video.  View Video

This video is my quadrant design strategy when preparing three posterior teeth including the distal occlusal stop (usually second molar).  The current version of the CEREC software is performing well. When designing multiple teeth, setting the proximal contacts size and alignment to the occlusal plane will expedite the design process and final restorative outcome.  Link to Video

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.

Beginning with the “end in mind” will define our journey in the restorative dental theater.  With micro-adhesive retention as part of our repertoire, minimally invasive preparation options are all about enamel.

CEREC 4.4 Software provides a new feature called Bio Jaw.  Once an anterior case is proposed with BioGeneric Individual, the Bio Jaw feature opens an option to then choose tooth and smile style templates and in addition has simplified the tooth alignment
