Paste color options is my current favored approach for color accenting anterior restorations.  It is now my go to glaze method for e.max. This video will demonstrate creating incisal translucent and mamelon effects on a monolith ceramic resulting in a natural incisal outcome.

 By applying the incisal characteristics first and then firing, we can glaze in the effects with a final layer of glaze. This method will provide a better final depth effect than just one additon of incisal accent in the glaze.

I prefer to polish in the ceramic final luster, this is call superficial gloss finishing.  The final video in this series will walk the viewer through the polishing steps and prefered support products.
