his video is about the software workflow for the CAD/CAM orthotic/splint fabrication. It is a reasonably easy workflow in the software. The most important aspect of the software process is establishing the desired vertical and jaw position in the mouth and not opening on a hinge articulator. Watch the other videos in this sequence to understand the removable workflow from start to finish.

When do we choose between an onlay vs. a crown? This video will review my take on the topic. I have been placing various forms of ceramic onlays for over 30 years and been able to track their endurance. And this treatment application has achieved excellent results, even before e.max. I will break down the five condition factors to consider when choosing an onlay vs. a crown and then provide a case review and onlay software workflow.

What is the material of choice in our CAD/CAM theater when we have minimal clearance in a second molar zone? Historically, the short clinical tooth has been the most challenging to restore in my 30 plus career. We now have robust materials and precise milling options to deal with this clinical dilemma.

With the plethora of aesthetic zirconia materials, we are now capable of moving zirconia to the smile zone when it needs function and esthetics. This video tutorial is a case review about material choice and CEREC software workflow for an anterior bridge. In addition to designing each individual tooth within the bridge, the software presents a pontic baseline tool and connector design metrics to optimize the aesthetic and engineering design needs.

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.

Using BioCopy for posterior restorations is preferred when there is a need to post mill fit for an RPD or appliance. This video will review a very smooth workflow to accomplish great interproximal contacts and impeccable occlusion with BioCopy. This video will also review the best margin thickness parameter for e.max to assure no marginal microchipping.

The video is a CEREC case study using Copy & Mirror workflow for a single central veneer. The primary objective for this case is to brighten the tooth value using a conservative veneer to match the adjacent central. Treating a single center is the ultimate aesthetic opportunity. This video will discuss preparation, ceramic choices, and cementation strategies.

This video highlights my anterior prepping workflow for full crowns and scanning with the Primescan. This approach works well for Omnicam as well. The bur kit being used is by Meisinger (JK02). The white stone used for finishing is from Meisinger as well, but not on the prep kit. Please post questions or comments.
