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.

There are four primary software proposing options for anterior designs--BioCopy, Copy & Mirror, Biogeneric, and BioJaw.  All these proposal workflows have their place.  This video tutorial will review my Biogeneric workflow for multiple anterior teeth.  I still acquire a Biocopy catalog and activate this catalog to guide the placement of the anterior virtual restorations in the Design Phase screen.

This video will review the workflow for designing the subgingival emergence for an implant restoration. When setting up the implant restoration in the model screen, we can choose to use or not to use the gingival mask for proposing the restoration.  How do we make this design choice?  This video will illustrate both options and when to use each approach.

The Articulation feature in the CEREC software is designed to identify and remove the lateral excursive interferences of occlusion by setting the posterior articulating determinants and recognizing anterior guidance.  This video will demonstrate 3 case reviews using the Functionally Generated Path for micro-occlusion virtual control.

This CEREC software workflow video is about using BioJaw for designing anterior full crowns.  I have found this is now my favored approach when designing multiple anterior veneer or crown restorations.  In principle, when going into multiple anterior restorations case, a wax-up or mock-up is still imperative for treatment planning,  preparation guide, and scanning for a Biocopy catalog.  With BioJaw the initial indication tooth type design choice is Biogeneric and not Biocopy.  The Biocopy catalog is added to the Acquisition screen from the side panel command.  When in the design screen, the BioCopy catalog is used as a virtual guide for

This BioCopy anterior software multiple crown case has been used in my anterior CEREC classes for a number of years.  Even though this case is illustrated working on a model, it is a case I did about seven years ago.  In this video, I review my systematic software workflow, starting with mastering the virtual midline and creating a virtual design flow resulting in milled restorations that should drop onto the preparations with minimal adjustments, just leaving the micro texturing to work through.

This lesson will walk through a single central workflow using the Primescan, e.max, and MiYO brush-on ceramic.  The principles are applicable to Omnicam users.

Applying the art and craft of ceramic shaping and micro-texturing takes our aesthetics skills to the next level.  This video tutorial will walk through my shaping workflow for a single central.  As the saying goes, once you have mastered the single central workflow and aesthetic blend, you will have reached the pinnacle for anterior aesthetics clinical applications.

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.
