Katana STML is the first of the available chairside multi-gradient aesthetic zirconia options for chairside CEREC milling. The sintering time in the Sirona SpeedFire furnace is in the 18:00-minute range. This is an incredible fact! A significant advantage for a multi zirconia application is that the aesthetic gradient is already in the pre-milled block. All we do is choose the matching color shade, mill, and polish after sintering. This video will demonstrate the effective finishing steps for Katana STML using the Klim Institute Meisinger Zirconia Lab Kit JK04.

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.

I have had my hands on the Primescan and it is the next cornerstone for the dental digital platform. Having used most of the scanners on the market today, the Primescan is a home run for a full arch scan, edentulous rigid and the palate. Excellent for digital and printed study models. Very accurate and intuitive to use.
Though I have been pleased with Omnicam, it is more of a quadrant capturing system though I have used it for the full arch, it is not as intuitive and more technique sensitive. What the Primescan has to offer is an upgrade image capturing system and the efficient way it compresses the data. This will provide for

Welcome to Ceramic Selection Series Introduction video. One of the most often asked questions in my classes through the years is material and ceramic color selection. I will keep adding to this series as new materials hit the market. My primary goal for this series is to provide a systematic pathway to ceramic and zirconia block color selection for chairside CAD/CAM CEREC users. The closer the treatment is to the midline, the more critical our ceramic selection becomes. With all-ceramic dentistry, there is more than color. Other factors that will impact our ceramic selection is restoration thickness, the color of the preparation,

CEREC Case Review for auto margin calculation in the CEREC 4.6 Software, it draws the margin for you! When the margins are "high and dry", auto margin drawing is spot on. This case review will highlight the CEREC software for creating an e.max onlay restoration.

Part two video for optimizing your CEREC software clinical flow. This is a longer video than most of mine. However, I think it will keep your attention interest. This video reflects my CEREC software workflow for a two-minute design sequence for a posterior restoration. The workflow and design tips provided in this video have solved the design and fit issues for several dozen dentists who quit using or were planning on returning their CEREC due to integration and quality frustrations.

I have often received calls from CEREC offices and have had Patterson Dental sent new CEREC owners to my educational center who are struggling with chairside CEREC integration. Going clear back to dental school, there are times that I have struggled with new clinical applications. I have found that integration problems are usually still solved with going back to the basics for the particular application being accomplished. I have found this to be the case with most CEREC integration issues. The beauty of CEREC is that is will refine our prep skills by showing the user where refinement needs to happen. Labs have been dealing with our
