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.

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
