The workflow present in the video is the strategy I use to complete a veneer case in the same appointment. Several pointers will help the process.  One, go in with a mock-up and complete the projects in sections, so the milling starts early in the appointment.  Two, have a predictable design and milling strategy, have the glaze coloring system down, and gain outstanding results.

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.

CEREC's entry to clinical use started with the inlay/onlay applications. I still opt for conservative restorations. This video responds to new CEREC user hiccups with the conservative CEREC restoration.

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.

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.
