One of the most asked questions I have received in the last decade about the CEREC workflow is mastering occlusion with the finished restoration(s).  This video will address the major pointers I look for and apply when designing posterior restorations.  The content of this video applies to both Omnicam and Primescan users.

This video documents my workflow for scanning in veneers with Primescan.  This technique works well for Omnicam users, however, a light mist of Optispray will be needed to define the interproximal margin zone when using Omnicam.  Primescan has solved so many scanning issues of its predecessors (Omnicam and Bluecam).  Primescan is definitely a dream and captures thin enamel margins and undercuts to provide well-defined images and clean margins.

The Primescan is reliable for scanning large restorative cases.  This video will demonstrate the advantages of using a segmental prep and scan strategy for scanning larger restorative cases.  This technique will also work well for Omnicam users.

Can we be secure with finding and producing predictable subgingival margin quality?  Definitely yes with the Primescan. Definitely yes with Omnicam. This video reviews my current soft tissue management and retraction strategies and the technique for achieving margin certainty.

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 Primescan full mouth scan and bite registration for appliance fabrication is unparalleled.  This video will demonstrate my technique for efficient and reliable scans for digital study models and appliance therapy.

This is my workflow for a one-piece implant restoration.  The software steps presented in this video apply to both Omnicam and Primescan.  Sequencing the CEREC software design steps in a strategic order will expedite the design process and avoid overlapping tool design strokes.

Imaging, designing, and fabricating an implant restoration is one of my favorite CEREC applications.  This video will review my workflow strategy for designing a posterior implant restoration using the Primescan and the latest version of the software.

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 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.
