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.

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 CEREC software workflow video is about using BioJaw for designing anterior full crowns.  I have found this is now my favored approach when designing multiple anterior veneer or crown restorations.  In principle, when going into multiple anterior restorations case, a wax-up or mock-up is still imperative for treatment planning,  preparation guide, and scanning for a Biocopy catalog.  With BioJaw the initial indication tooth type design choice is Biogeneric and not Biocopy.  The Biocopy catalog is added to the Acquisition screen from the side panel command.  When in the design screen, the BioCopy catalog is used as a virtual guide for

There are four ways to 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.

Anterior BioJaw is a software feature where the user can choose from templates and design a virtual smile setup. The BioCopy catalog is used as a virtual position guide for tooth size, position, and tip.  The value of BioJaw is the resulting cleaner virtual design than with BioCopy design.  This video will journey through the software design workflow for multiple anterior virtual designs using BioJaw.

The ZirCAD Multi zirconia aesthetic bridge series has been posted on the CE section of this website for 1.5 units of CE.  

The Klim Institute is a PACE certified educational service.  In most states, the viewer can gain up to 50% of license renewal with online certified education (check your regional or state board to verify).  This site will continue the process of providing new online CE lessons to expand our current CE portfolio.

Zirconia brand options in the CAD/CAM world are multiplying as we speak.  Fortunately, this surge in material options provides a better creative menu to choose from when setting up our CEREC software for a bridge.  We have e.max for anterior, zirconia multi-options for the premolar zone, and high strength zirconia when we still need the muscle material.  We need to be familiar with the 3Y, 4Y, and 5Y zirconia selections, it will impact our prep style, reduction, aesthetics, and strength.  Not all zirconia options have the same biofunctional strength. This video will provide an overview of zirconia bridge materials and the setup process in
