This tutorial is the first part of the stain & glaze trilogy series for the Ivoclar rapid e.max firing cycle (and it works for all the e.max firing cycles). Once the restoration is milled, the e.max posterior restoration is efficiently shaped for morphological refinement, surface texture, and surface finish using the Dr. James Klim Meisinger JK03 Lab bur kit specially designed for CEREC users.

Internalizing color for zirconia dental restorations is an effective way to enhance saturation zones and control value. In my hands, I have found this approach to work well in particular for 3Y zirconia and also Katana and ZirCAD Multi.

Part one video in BioJaw anterior design series. The way I save time in my anterior design theater is to go into the case preplanned with a wax-up which I now do in inLab, print the model and use the wax-up as a reduction guide and basis for making provisionals when needed.  Time-saving comes from being certain with preparation reduction protocols for the case and then propose and refine with BioJaw, still using a BioCopy component to guide the BioJaw placement.  One thing unique to this case review is the strategy used to block out a dark root.

    Having traveled the all-ceramic road for over thirty years, I have a great appreciation for some of our current high-strength ceramic options such as e.max, Suprinity, Amber Mill, and Celtra. Two universal stain and glaze systems that are working well on these ceramic systems are Ivocolor by Ivoclar, and MiYO by Jensen. This video is my technique for using Ivocolor for characterizing the incisal edge of e.max.

    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.

    The inverted sintered cone diamond on the Meisinger JK03 Klim Institute Lab kit is the most versatile shaping diamond. It works well on posterior occlusal surface refinements and micro texturing anterior labial surfaces.
