This video is my typical veneer bonding workflow.  Though I now use Variolink Esthetic Dual Cure for easy cleanup, the light cure Variolink Esthetic is used in this video.  This video is a bit long.  Let me know how these longer videos work for you.

MiYO Esthetic is the magic layer to our zirconia aesthetic restorations.  With this material, I can intermix and blend with adjacent e.max restorations.  With the aesthetic zirconia, choose one to two shades darker than the target shade, and place MiYO Esthetic on just the buccal/labial surface.  This video will demonstrate using MiYO Esthetic on an anterior ZirCAD MT Multi zirconia bridge.

Infiltration may not be necessary in every anterior zirconia bridge case. However, it will come in handy for cases with deeper cervical dentin saturation and does help in creating the illusion of separations for the pontic. This video will illustrate applying a single infiltration color using ZirCAD LT Coloring liquids on a ZirCAD MT Multi zirconia anterior bridge. When infiltration is applicable for the case, this is applied in the green zirconia condition, and the restoration is sintered using the added drying cycle in the CS6 and the SpeedFire.

With the evolution of aesthetic zirconia, I am finding applications for the anterior aesthetic zone.  There is a trifecta solution that will enhance the outcome, shaping and texturing, infiltration, and application of MiYo Esthetic colors and glaze.  With this combination of ZirCAD MT Multi, Infiltration, and MiYO Esthetic, I can now interexchange with e.max on anterior smile cases and comprehensive care.  This video will demonstrate what we do when the zirconia comes out of the milling unit before sintering.

The video will rate my favored Stain and glaze systems for ceramics and zirconia.  The top of my list is Ivocoloar by Ivoclar, MiYo 850, and MiYo Esthetic by Jensen.  These systems are taking our monolith restoration to a new level.  Do we need them all, or is there a universal option?

MiYO 850 has transformed my aesthetic clinical theater for e.max.  By adding 850 glaze and colors for the crystallization firing, saves significant clinical time, and elevates the aesthetic outcome for e.max.  This video is the one-step for creating a natural incisal edge and applying the glaze and colors on a blue e.max block.

High and dry margins finished with e.max restorations are one of my clinical theater's kindest and most long-term restorative options.  This video will review the finishing steps following milling and then the application of glaze and colors using MiYO 850.

So here is my post-mill workflow, remove sprue, customize the primary, secondary, and tertiary texturing features, and place one application of 850 MiYO glaze and color. Sounds simple; it is! My software design strategy is creating 95% of the tooth-shaped features in the software. Post-mill shaping and texturing become streamlined. This video is the post-mill workflow for a canine. Enjoy!

850 MiYO is a glazing and aesthetic outcome homerun for e.max.  MiYO 850 is designed just for e.max and can be applied before crystallization.  This video will work you through the steps to creating beautiful e.max posterior restorations.

Our current milling option is refining the e.max mill very well.  Before glazing and coloring, a few finishing steps will dramatically improve the outcome.  This video is the first video in a miniseries for the 850 MiYO application.  However, this video will stand alone for other e.max glaze application options.
