Those who are in the in-office CAD/CAM service with CEREC appreciate the control of self-reliance in our clinical treatment workflows.  I for one am so appreciative of my CEREC journey over the last 20 years and hope to see many more years with this clinical fulfillment.  This video describes my workflow for fabricating dental splints and orthotics that are a significant part of my patient's occlusal and comfort management.

Yes, my MC XL saved my day several weeks ago.  I love the conservative restoration for posterior and anterior veneers.  I have used CEREC for two decades, and this system and upgrades have provided a fulfilling 20 years of practice.  As you may have observed, I am branching out to other mill systems and software, using the Primescan for imaging.  There are limitations to getting around the 4-axis mill for conservative restorations.  One advantage of the MC XL over the Primemill is the left step bur 12.  The diameter is the smallest diameter we have at about 0.85 mm for Fine Mill and Extra Fine Mill.  I will go through this advantage inRead more

I am making a series of instructional videos for anterior zirconia applications, zirconia options, and the finishing process.  Zirconia aesthetics options and support liquid ceramics provide a new look for using anterior zirconia aesthetic restorations.

Custom programming the Programat CS6 for Ivocolor and MiYO Esthetic video. Two drying times can be worked with. The Glaze dry time cycle is 14:10 minutes. Using the Cryst drying cycle will reduce the overall cycle time to 11:20 minutes.  I have not observed any bubbling when using the faster cycle.  Experiment and see what works best for your results.

MiYO Esthetic has been a game changer for making zirconia restorations more life-like and ceramics.  Considered a brush on ceramic, the colors have a special translucency, providing a depth effect like no other ceramic coloring system.  Recently Jensen provided an 16 minute firing program.  Below is the firing forumula for furnance programing.

In the last ten years, I have applied various glazes for e.max, starting with Crystall, then Ceram and Colors, Ivoclor, and now MiYO 850.  Each one has improved the outcome for the final result.  What I have learned from teaching all of these products on e.max through the years is that the colors and glaze with MiYO 850 are more forgiving and natural looking due to their translucent nature than any other system I have used.  In all my 30-plus years of teaching, never have I seen such a positive and emotional response to learning and mastery as I have observed with MiYO.  My main motivation for teaching is passing on significant valuedRead more
