Ivocolor stain and glaze is the most proficient system I use in my CEREC CAD/CAM clinical theater.  This video will review the steps of color addition and technique for creating a subtle incisal edge effect.

There are aesthetics and cervical soft tissue health benefits to polishing a restoration following stain and glaze.

  • Refine and smooth convexed zones
  • Create a luster that fits the case
  • Polish margins removing micro-ceramic tags

After the glaze and color firing, there is one more simple step we can take that will elevate our ceramics to the next level, it is called superficial gloss finishing.  This video will go through the steps to master the final luster on a canine ceramic.

This video will review the technique I use when creating a thin feather e.max margin.  There are several milling parameters that will help in avoiding chipped margins.  Let's find out the indications and how to set up a case for predictable thin margins.

This video is about the unique shaping and surface texturing of a canine.  This is one of the cases I use in my hands-on classes.  I will also review the indications for using BioCopy as a design feature.

I use two glaze and coloring systems in my clinical theater, Ivocolor, and MiYO.  They both have their place—this video documents my glaze color system when I need an efficient turnaround time with beautiful results.

Two stain and glaze systems work very well in my clinical theater, Ivocolor by Ivoclar Vivadent and MiYo by Jensen.  Ivocolor is the most efficient and straightforward system, whereas MiYo colors have more depth perception and work well on zirconia and LT e.max ceramics.  However, MiYo takes more time and is not an efficient appointment support system.  This video will document the steps and colors used for an anterior e.max bridge stain and glaze technique.

This video is about shaping and texturing in an anterior e.max bridge (mastering your craft).  The process will be predictably accomplished with a systematic workflow and the right lab burs and shapers.

  • e.max bridge
  • JK03 Meisinger Lab Kit

This is a model tip I learned from a lab technician years ago, and it works well on both digitally printed models and traditional stone models.
