This video highlights my anterior prepping workflow for full crowns and scanning with the Primescan. This approach works well for Omnicam as well. The bur kit being used is by Meisinger (JK02). The white stone used for finishing is from Meisinger as well, but not on the prep kit. Please post questions or comments.

This video is my typical veneer bonding workflow. Though I now use Variolink Esthetic Dual Cure for easy cleanup, the light cure Variolink Esthetic is used in this video. This video is a bit long. Let me know how these longer videos work for you.

Over the last 12 years, my veneer trend has been to preserve more and more tooth enamel and engineer thinner veneers. I preserve at least 50% enamel surface or more for a strong adhesive interphase to enamel. A material like e.max has helped this journey due to its robust nature allowing our veneer applications to go down to 300 um and less than 50 um on the margins. This video is about my preparation strategy when I prep. And this case has it all, breaking contact on some of the preps, minimal prepping on others, and then almost no prepping on the premolars and molars.

This video is an introduction to conservative veneer workflow in addition to soft tissue laser recontouring before veneer preparation. The second video phase is about the incisal addition of composite to setup a more conservative incisal reduction for the final veneers.

Fabricating and using a Sil-Tech aesthetic jig is a predictable asset for aesthetic mock-ups. This video will review applications for a prototype before and during an anterior smile treatment and then the fabrication process for a mock-up Sil-tech jib.

The workflow present in the video is the strategy I use to complete a veneer case in the same appointment. Several pointers will help the process. One, go in with a mock-up and complete the projects in sections, so the milling starts early in the appointment. Two, have a predictable design and milling strategy, have the glaze coloring system down, and gain outstanding results.

MiYO Esthetic is the magic layer to our zirconia aesthetic restorations. With this material, I can intermix and blend with adjacent e.max restorations. With the aesthetic zirconia, choose one to two shades darker than the target shade, and place MiYO Esthetic on just the buccal/labial surface. This video will demonstrate using MiYO Esthetic on an anterior ZirCAD MT Multi zirconia bridge.

The most optimal zirconia surface wear against a natural dentition is polished zirconia. It is kinder than a class IV gold. This video will break down the steps and polishing tools to effectively polish the anterior bridge's lingual and pontic tissue surfaces. However, leave the labial surface unpolished to retain the surface texture for MiYO Esthetic application.

Infiltration may not be necessary in every anterior zirconia bridge case. However, it will come in handy for cases with deeper cervical dentin saturation and does help in creating the illusion of separations for the pontic. This video will illustrate applying a single infiltration color using ZirCAD LT Coloring liquids on a ZirCAD MT Multi zirconia anterior bridge. When infiltration is applicable for the case, this is applied in the green zirconia condition, and the restoration is sintered using the added drying cycle in the CS6 and the SpeedFire.
