 There are four ways I propose in the CEREC software for anterior work.  This video will demonstrate the software workflow for Copy & Mirror and is my preferred method when the adjacent central is in good shape and form.  This is Part one in a series of start to finish (shaping, stain/glaze, and polish) for a single central.

There have been issues with the implant two-piece e.max mill fit between the abutment and crown.  I often experience the implant crown binding on the abutment and not fully seated.  This video will provide several parameter tweaks so the e.max implant abutment and crown will fit precisely.

This video reviews the steps for machining and fabrication of the CAD/CAM splint.  For the best fit, it is important to complete the thermoform aligner on a printed model.

What is the material of choice in our CAD/CAM theater when we have minimal clearance in a second molar zone?  Historically, the short clinical tooth has been the most challenging to restore in my 30 plus career.  We now have robust materials and precise milling options to deal with this clinical dilemma.

Now that the CAD/CAM office has a growing selection of zirconia options such as 3M, Katana STML, ZirCAD Multi, and the soon-to-be-released zirconias, we have both strengths and aesthetic choices for our clinical theater. This video is an introduction to the cadstar.tv zirconia channel.

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.

The video is a CEREC case study using Copy & Mirror workflow for a single central veneer.  The primary objective for this case is to brighten the tooth value using a conservative veneer to match the adjacent central.  Treating a single center is the ultimate aesthetic opportunity. This video will discuss preparation, ceramic choices, and cementation strategies.

There are four primary software proposing options for anterior designs--BioCopy, Copy & Mirror, Biogeneric, and BioJaw.  All these proposal workflows have their place.  This video tutorial will review my Biogeneric workflow for multiple anterior teeth.  I still acquire a Biocopy catalog and activate this catalog to guide the placement of the anterior virtual restorations in the Design Phase screen.

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.
