850 MiYO is a game changer for creating aesthetic e.max restorations.  I have been using 850 for about six months, and the ease of use and the aesthetic outcome has been the most significant results I have seen with glaze and colors in 20 years.  This video will introduce the workflow by placing the glaze and colors before crystallization.  The time savings and results will be incredible.

This video shares my passion for why I love providing online CEREC education.  I have been so blessed by making a decision 15 years ago to integrate CEREC into my clinical theater.  Fast forward to the latest Primescan!  It is hard to believe how this restorative digital journey has evolved to now impacting a significant part of my daily clinical chairside care.

I have had a number of inquiries from our online world audience about where are the 4.6 software videos.  4.6 has not been released in the US yet.  We will offer videos as soon as it is released in the US.  In the meantime, be cautious about uploading until we are assured the bugs are worked out.

The CEREC 4.51 software will be incredible once the hardware catches up with the software. The milling algorithms are the best I have seen since using this system.  The problem, unless you CEREC tower is fairly recent, the system is still crashing.  Consider this part of progress! View Video

The 4.5 software is here.  I love the upgraded margin clarity and refined mills.  However, the software does crash a bit.  Unless you have a recent computer tower,  you may need to upgrade to make this software work. Sorry!  However, this software is the closest I have seen in performance to 3.85 since introducing the 4.0 platform.  View my intro video.  There is a general overview for each section of the software in the 4.5 Software Channel.  More videos will be coming soon in the 4.5 Channel.   View 4.5 Overview Video

We have been working on our updated website platform for the last 6 months.  We are looking forward to adding allot of new content and online CE options.  As we observe the performance of our new platform, I am sure there will be a few areas to tweak.  That is part of our upgrade journey.  We look forward to the future and many new adventures and learning options for you online.   Thank you to Jenny Nolan at the Klim Institute for overseeing and orchestrating the new site.   James Klim DDS, FAGD, AAACD
