The Manufacture Phase Screen has the same setup features as in the prior CEREC 4.61 screen.  Occlusal Offset is the significant factor in this screen and getting it right on to avoid adjusting occlusion on the milled seated restorations.  Milling speed and bur size are chosen by material and margin thickness objectives for the case.

Even with a fully automated model screen, there are four checks I use before proposing to assure restorative fit.  This video will share my model screen hacks to save the day.  CEREC 4.61 and 5.0 software versions are the same, just different graphics interphase.  The principles of this video apply to the 4.61 software version as well.

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.

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.

Biogeneric Variation is the first tool I use in my posterior design steps.  I call it my “Secret Design Weapon” . The scaled alterations provide morphological “fingerprinting” for both posterior and anterior virtual design alternatives.  If you have not used this tool yet, try it.  It is profound!  View Video

Some of you are starting to receive the 4.50 software update.  Make sure to update to the latest patch 4.51.  If you have one of the latest towers, your system should perform well with this CEREC software update.  If not, the system may need a few hardware tweaks until it is operating well with this version of the software.  One of my most appreciated assets in the 4.5+ software is margin clarity.  Has been significantly improved and easier to identify the margins.  The linked video will demonstrate the latest in finding and drawing margins.  I call it the emotional restorative peace factor.  Margins are one of my things that make my day
