As a dental clinician, I am so grateful for digital technology and excited about what the Primescan by Dentsply Sirona will provide in accuracy and ease of imaging. This video documents my very first imaging step to achieve predictable occlusion with our milled restorations and avoiding high occlusion.

Now that I have had the Primescan for a few months, I have a good feel for it and find significant ease in the scanning compared to its CEREC predecessors, sharp margin viewing, and smooth flow of the software process. I am finishing my bread and butter restorative dentistry 12-15 minutes ahead of schedule on the average.  This videos will review my top Primescan assets and how it can impact your clinical theater.

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.

View New Online Training CEREC Content - New Content Link. Are we able to machine thin feather margins with CEREC without chipping? Oh yes, we can! In fact, I am going to make a quality statement. We can mill a "pressable" margin with the MC XL using the EF bur system. This video will review the clinical criteria for applying a thin margin to optimize the aesthetic results.

Love the thin milled CAD/CAM margin when there is adequate enamel on the cervical margins.  My presentation at Dentsply Sirona World 2017 was about aesthetic emotional closure and finishing the thin feather margin with the CEREC system.  This video will cover my parameters and finishing technique.

Chairside zirconia restoration...getting better every month. ZirCAD LT, multi infiltration effect, and polished. Chairside zirconia provides a complete portfolio for restoring posterior teeth.

I do appreciate the all-zirconia restorations and provide quite a number of them as a treatment option in my clinical theater.  The primary benefit of the all zirconia restoration for me is the conservative crown prep and biomechanical “muscle” material behavior.  In the next year, we will find an abundance of new brands and translucency options being introduced to the market.  We will need to decipher recommended prep style and reductionRead more
