Not every case I do is high-end aesthetics.  There are clinical situations where I just want to make it work!  This is one of those cases where high-strength zirconia made it work.

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.

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!

Is it possible to design and create "pressable like" veneers with CEREC?  The answer is YES.  I do this all the time with razor blade margins and no chipping.  This video with reviewing via case review the criteria for no prep or minimally prepared veneer applications, design tips, milling approach, and finishing protocols for thin e.max veneers and no marginal chipping.

One of the features in CEREC I appreciate the most is designing and creating customized abutment/crown one or two piece restorations.  CEREC 4.52 has been a smooth acquisition, design, and production process for implant restorations. Have been very pleased!  One hassle for implant/abutment in CEREC 4.6 has been minimal thickness defaults and not being able to modify the metric settings for unique implant design and milled cases.  As a result, some cases cannot be milled.  This hassle in 4.6 has been frustrating for me. However, I did keep 4.52 on my system which has been seamless for implant design and production.  So my go-to CEREC

One way to streamline the software design flow is applying a few shortcut keys and mouse tool design actions.  This video will show and demonstrate my favored ones.

 There is now a sprue location preset in the CEREC software that provides default time savings.  In Configurations under Settings, the software allows the user to preset sprue location preference for veneer, anterior crowns, premolars, and molar.  I do appreciate this.  In the heat of the day with a busy schedule, sprue location can easily be overlooked before the mill.  If the sprue location can be placed other than a proximal surface, significant time will be saved, and the user can count on the restorations proximal contacts fitting well without adjustings.

The Omnicam and CEREC Software is an exceptional system.  Being able to capture efficient accurate digital information will streamline the software design flow, assure well fitting and well-formed restorations, and elevate our CAD/CAM satisfaction.  This video will convey my clinical practice and comments about whether there is a need for powder/anti-reflection practices in the current CEREC clinical world.
