With the evolution of aesthetic zirconia, I am finding applications for the anterior aesthetic zone.  There is a trifecta solution that will enhance the outcome, shaping and texturing, infiltration, and application of MiYo Esthetic colors and glaze.  With this combination of ZirCAD MT Multi, Infiltration, and MiYO Esthetic, I can now interexchange with e.max on anterior smile cases and comprehensive care.  This video will demonstrate what we do when the zirconia comes out of the milling unit before sintering.

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.

Through the years, I have found a method of questioning to determine if a patient will be challenging.  This video will review the questions to be asked when setting up a patient for success in the relationship with the office.  This becomes particularly important for comprehensive dental care.

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 Primescan is reliable for scanning large restorative cases.  This video will demonstrate the advantages of using a segmental prep and scan strategy for scanning larger restorative cases.  This technique will also work well for Omnicam users.

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.

For the last 10 years, my favored software flow for anterior multiple tooth design has been BioCopy.  This anterior case review will introduce my current Biocopy/Biojaw modified anterior workflow for multiple teeth.  This is the first video in a series of three videos.
