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.

With the plethora of aesthetic zirconia materials, we are now capable of moving zirconia to the smile zone when it needs function and esthetics. This video tutorial is a case review about material choice and CEREC software workflow for an anterior bridge. In addition to designing each individual tooth within the bridge, the software presents a pontic baseline tool and connector design metrics to optimize the aesthetic and engineering design needs.

Occlusal Offset will impact material thickness milled and occlusal calibration. This video will discuss how to arrive at an Occlusal Offset that is properly calibrated for your CEREC system and assure proper occlusal material thickness and occlusal contact firmness. Though this video is illustrated in CEREC Software version 4.65, the principles are the same for the current 5... version software.

This video is my workaround technique for creating an implant-supported bridge using the CEREC software. In the future, hopefully, Dentsply Sirona will provide more creative workflows in the chairside software for making implant bridges.

With the CEREC dry-mill option for zirconia and the efficient Katana Speedfire cycle, Katana has become a reliable posterior full crown option in my CEREC theater. This video is about my "bread & butter" workflow for posterior Katana single crown applications.

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.

One of the most asked questions I have received in the last decade about the CEREC workflow is mastering occlusion with the finished restoration(s). This video will address the major pointers I look for and apply when designing posterior restorations. The content of this video applies to both Omnicam and Primescan users.
