A new part of this website is a Q&A response to questions through the message center and social media, which will benefit others in the dental theater and CEREC applications. This Q & A addresses selecting e.max shade and translucency for posterior onlays and the best milling strategy for milling onlays with the MC XL. The brands that I use for posterior milled composites is Tetric CAD and Cerasmart.

My number one factor in avoiding post-treatment sensitivity following the delivery of indirect restorations is the management of force dynamics in the occlusal morphological design. This is one reason I like the virtual digital design to control occlusal contact placement. This video's occlusal design concept uses Primescan and the latest CEREC software. These principles apply to Exocad and 3 Shape software, and I am also branching into these virtual design softwares.

My primary goal for this series is to provide a systematic pathway to ceramic selection. The closer the treatment is to the midline, the more critical our ceramic selection becomes. With all-ceramic dentistry, there is more than color. Other factors that will impact our ceramic selection are restoration thickness, the color of the preparation, material translucency, cement/spacerRead more
