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.

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.
