Some of you are starting to receive the 4.50 software update.  Make sure to update to the latest patch 4.51.  If you have one of the latest towers, your system should perform well with this CEREC software update.  If not, the system may need a few hardware tweaks until it is operating well with this version of the software.  One of my most appreciated assets in the 4.5+ software is margin clarity.  Has been significantly improved and easier to identify the margins.  The linked video will demonstrate the latest in finding and drawing margins.  I call it the emotional restorative peace factor.  Margins are one of my things that make my day

With the current milling algorithms and bur options, we can mail “pressable” mills. This video documents my optimal milling techniques. View Video

The CEREC 4.51 software will be incredible once the hardware catches up with the software. The milling algorithms are the best I have seen since using this system.  The problem, unless you CEREC tower is fairly recent, the system is still crashing.  Consider this part of progress! View Video

The 4.5 software is here.  I love the upgraded margin clarity and refined mills.  However, the software does crash a bit.  Unless you have a recent computer tower,  you may need to upgrade to make this software work. Sorry!  However, this software is the closest I have seen in performance to 3.85 since introducing the 4.0 platform.  View my intro video.  There is a general overview for each section of the software in the 4.5 Software Channel.  More videos will be coming soon in the 4.5 Channel.   View 4.5 Overview Video

My CAD/CAM CEREC ceramic grinding provides incredible feather margins when the case needs this type of margin style.  This video will recommend two bur set options to create great feather margins when using the Sirona CEREC system.
