Zirconia implant abutments play a routine part in my clinical theater.  The InCoris Meso F2 is my go-to implant abutment block, but I add one more feature to create an A3 to A4 color using infiltration before sintering.  This video reviews my abutment coloring technique and the recommended zirconia infiltration system.

This video is my workflow for setting up thin veneers.  What are the case situations that work for thin veneers, and how do we choose the ceramic color and then process the veneer for placement?  This video will also present the benefits of using the MiYO 850 Stain and glaze system.

This video is the software workflow for a lower arch to open the bite with prepless onlays and veneers on the canine.  The current software is working well!  The transitional bite will be milled in composite material and bonded.  This transitional occlusion will provide neural, muscle memory, and biomechanical adaptation before placing the final restorative restorations.

The fixed transitional bite introduction. Creating prepless onlays and veneers using the precision of the Primescan buccal bite registration is a predictable way of increasing the vertical dimensions and creating a fixed transition occlusion before the final restorations.

”We move the comprehensive patient back to general dentistry by creating an adaptive physiologic transitional bite and choosing a restorative workflow to reproduce and maintain the transitional bite during the final restorative process.”

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.

The video will review my simple stain and glaze technique for bringing a canine alive.  Listen to what others are saying about the Ivocolor glaze and coloring system.
