This video is the introduction to the James Klim DDS CEREC Meisinger Lab Kit (JK03). The combo of shaping diamonds and wheels and diamond polishers is designed for efficient ceramic finishing. I use this kit to finish my CAD/CAM restorations in my clinical dental theater and hands-on teaching classes at the CADStar CEREC Training Center in Santa Rosa, California. Patterson Order number for the JK03 is #466-9990

When designing teeth at the midline, it is best to create mirror mesial incisal, labial, and cervical embrasures. The midline is best managed with the vertical axis of the face. This is why I use BioCopy and preplan the case with a wax-up to simplify and provide a system for very predictable results.
Work from the midline distally (Design and Finishing Workflow). Choose the central with the largest root truck and set it to the midline using the 2D guide. Then remove the model and finish the proximal mesial of the single central

James Klim Response:
Yes, I use infiltration on Katana and the ZirCAD Multi to enhance intrinsic cervical coloration when needed. I use ZirCAD LTRead more
