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 BioCopy anterior software multiple crown case has been used in my anterior CEREC classes for a number of years.  Even though this case is illustrated working on a model, it is a case I did about seven years ago.  In this video, I review my systematic software workflow, starting with mastering the virtual midline and creating a virtual design flow resulting in milled restorations that should drop onto the preparations with minimal adjustments, just leaving the micro texturing to work through.

The anterior BioCopy software workflow has been my main anterior tooth proposing technique going back to 2004. Though I am using BioJaw most of the time now for multiple anterior restorations, BioCopy is still the standard proposing application when there an ideal BioCopy scan and a demand to precisely reproduce the prototype or pre-prepared tooth.  This video will review my strategies for case setup and workflow for anterior BioCopy design proposing.

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.

The ceramic milled and finished restorations just dropped in!   I have noticed better contact precision when designing multiple side-by-side restorations with Primescan.  We did have one hiccup with this case.  The centrals needed a brighter shade.  This video will share how the two e.max cental restorations where cemented temporarily and rescanned, used for BioCopy design, and then milled for a brighter shade.  Shade issues happen occasionally when working with thin ceramics, this is my workaround method for cases like this!

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.

This video will show my workflow for designing a posterior bridge in the CEREC software.  There are a number of zirconia materials and brands to choose from when fabricating a bridge in today's CAD/CAM world.  I used ZirCAD Multi for this case.  The videos to follow will document each step of the workflow from green zirconia shaping and luster finishing, infiltration, and final MiYO brush-on ceramic application on the buccal corridor surfaces.

There are a few additional steps when setting up an implant restoration(s) in the administration screen.  The first thing to check is affirming that the implant size and brand are in the current software system.  Most mainline implant brands are.  Before scheduling the patient, order the corresponding ScanPost.  Scanning and fabricating an implant restoration is one of the most efficient and predictable applications in the CEREC software.
