I just completed this case.  Subgingival margins on the distal due to cervical decay issues. Laser tissue retraction with the VITA Scan Spray will create very crisp and enhanced margins for optical capture. Restoration:  Full crown, e.max cement with SpeedCEM.

Just seated this e.max B1 HT veneer case. Prepared and imaged in the late afternoon of my clinical day, desensitized prepared teeth, and seated the veneers the next morning. Worked from a wax-up as the guide for tooth proposal.  This case will soon be posted in CEREC Liftoff Chapter 9.

For 3.85 version and prior, I still prefer the Correlation Jig when taking a veneer optical capture for multiple maxillary incisor veneers.  The new posted video in chapter 9 will review the capture "Correlation Jig" technique used in the Klim office. Benefits of Correlation Jig 1. Fewer optical captures required. 2.  Ideal 60 degree capture of veneer preparation(s). 3.

CEREC parameter calibration is one of the pillars for seamless CEREC outcomes.  Review recent webcast as presented at the Bay Area CEREC Study

"I liked your Cerec Liftoff webcast/book so much I watched it twice. It has improved the initial try-in fit tremendously to use the parameters you have worked out and I think the artwork and finishing tips have brought my restorations up to that elusive "A" restoration. Thanks for taking the time to put all this together in one place. I love it! Now if I could just find a player piano for my reception area..."  (Facebook posting from David LeMay)

Thanks David...Liftoff will continue to progress and remain a very active site.  I strive to raise my own bar everyday I practice and look forward passing on my experiences. James

Final photograph of e.max B1 HT restorations on #27, 28, and 29.  Labial thickness is 0.4 mm. Precise margin imaging yields precise  ceramic margins.  The "feather like" margins can now be achieve with the strength integrity of e.max.  Mill margin at no less than 0.3 mm with Parameter Margin thickness at 100. Polish back with silicone polishing wheel (see Chapter 4 and 9) to achieve

Had a great time at CDA Northern convention talking and sharing tips about CEREC.  Thanks to many for saying hi.  Also heard some good things about CEREC Liftoff. It is my commitment to raise the bar in CEREC and pass on the information. CEREC Liftoff members will be the first to receive the Klim updates.
