This is the introduction to a series of videos that will involve the complete workflow for accomplishing anterior veneers in our clinical theaters with CEREC or sending them off to a virtual lab. I will add future videos on veneer preparation options, optimal milling for thin veneer ceramics, ceramic finishing, and then veneer placement.

The anterior software workflow will be smooth when the case provides enough lingual occlusal room for designing the pontic/abutment connect size. The SW workflow is similar to designing three individual teeth and then learning to use the Baseline Tool for the pontic and creating adequate connector size from the lingual.

At last, I will be posting videos over the next few months on my comprehensive workflow using the digital platform (Primescan) for each step of the journey. This video is an overview of what is to come. You will receive new video notices when videos are posted. All the best in this journey.

Occlusal Offset will impact material thickness milled and occlusal calibration. This video will discuss how to arrive at an Occlusal Offset that is properly calibrated for your CEREC system and assure proper occlusal material thickness and occlusal contact firmness. Though this video is illustrated in CEREC Software version 4.65, the principles are the same for the current 5... version software.

The ceramic milled and finished restorations just dropped in! I have noticed better contact precision when designing multiple side-by-side restorations with Primescan. We did have one hiccup with this case. The centrals needed a brighter shade. This video will share how the two e.max cental restorations where cemented temporarily and rescanned, used for BioCopy design, and then milled for a brighter shade. Shade issues happen occasionally when working with thin ceramics, this is my workaround method for cases like this!

Anterior BioJaw is a software feature where the user can choose from templates and design a virtual smile setup. The BioCopy catalog is used as a virtual position guide for tooth size, position, and tip. The value of BioJaw is the resulting cleaner virtual design than with BioCopy design. This video will journey through the software design workflow for multiple anterior virtual designs using BioJaw.

This video will highlight my anterior ceramic shaping workflow for multiple anterior restorations, particularly when crossing the midline. However, anterior restorative success is mostly about understanding the patient's treatment expectations and then working through the biomechanical diagnosis and preplanning with either a traditional or digital wax-up.
The predetermined wax-up prototype is used for preparation guidelines and reduction, transitional restorations when using a two appointment protocol, and a digital BioCopy scan for digital design guidance. When these preliminary and preparatory guidelines are delivered to the
