Restoring a single maxillary incisor presents the greatest blend challenge with dentistry in the smile zone. When the adjacent teeth are in good shape, I stay conservative. With chairside CAD/CAM using the Dentsply Sirona system, the Copy and Mirror is my preferred design approach creating a "DNA form and shape" by copying the adjacent central. The next step is choosing the ceramic that blends best for the case. Since the ceramic and cement refractory behavior will change once cemented, so will the value and blend. In my blend theater, I prefer placing a transitional restoration that is machined with the projected ceramic and luting

Number one objective for anterior tooth upgrade treatment is addressing biofunctional demands. Biofunctional demands are often the challenge that is hard to navigate when there is advanced aging wear and tear conditions. This #cereccasereview will walk through the setup, CEREC design approach, and finished case addressing the maxillary central incisors when there is a challenging lingual wear issue.

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.

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
