Aesthetic zirconia workflow question that arrived at the Klim Institute Message Center:

"Interested in your intrinsic staining technique. Can this also be used on the Katana blocks? I want to mill, intrinsically stain my zirconia restorations, sinter, polish, and then the seat. Do you offer any hands-on courses, or which online videos do you recommend I watch? Also, can you provide a materials list so I can get the supplies to start?"

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

This tutorial will walk through the products and workflow for cementing a zirconia abutment on the TiBase. When crafting a two-piece implant restoration, zirconia for the abutment is my preferred material when designing in the premolar and anterior regions.

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.
