Zirconia implant abutments play a routine part in my clinical theater.  The InCoris Meso F2 is my go-to implant abutment block, but I add one more feature to create an A3 to A4 color using infiltration before sintering.  This video reviews my abutment coloring technique and the recommended zirconia infiltration system.

This video is my workflow for setting up thin veneers.  What are the case situations that work for thin veneers, and how do we choose the ceramic color and then process the veneer for placement?  This video will also present the benefits of using the MiYO 850 Stain and glaze system.

This is the introduction to a series of videos that will involve the complete workflow for accomplishing anterior veneers in our clinical theaters with CEREC or sending them off to a virtual lab.  I will add future videos on veneer preparation options, optimal milling for thin veneer ceramics, ceramic finishing, and then veneer placement.

This video is step four in the comprehensive digital workflow. Creating the fixed transitional occlusion is the magic of comprehensive care when increasing the OVD. The digital imaging with the Primescan is fully competent to capture and then create prepless onlay and veneers at levels of precision that dramatically simplifies the transitional phase of restoring a dentition when increasing OVD. This process facilitates the patient adapting in composite, with minor follow-up adjustments and settling the occlusion before moving into the final restorations. This video walks through the workflow for bonding the

The video provides a simplified workflow for creating a subtle natural incisal edge with MiYO on an e.max central incisor.

Steve shares how he adapted to the fixed transitional occlusion onlays and veneers.  

When changing a vertical functional dimension, verifying the patient’s adaptive capabilities with a removable splint is clinically safe, followed by fixed transitional onlays and veneers before moving into the final restorative phase. 

Measure this phase by interview questions and clinical response to the transitional bite. A successful adaptive occlusion will exhibit a clinical environment free from tooth, joint, and muscle pain. The patient needs physiologic imprinting and emotional closure before moving to the restorative phase

This video is the software workflow for a lower arch to open the bite with prepless onlays and veneers on the canine.  The current software is working well!  The transitional bite will be milled in composite material and bonded.  This transitional occlusion will provide neural, muscle memory, and biomechanical adaptation before placing the final restorative restorations.

The fixed transitional bite introduction. Creating prepless onlays and veneers using the precision of the Primescan buccal bite registration is a predictable way of increasing the vertical dimensions and creating a fixed transition occlusion before the final restorations.

”We move the comprehensive patient back to general dentistry by creating an adaptive physiologic transitional bite and choosing a restorative workflow to reproduce and maintain the transitional bite during the final restorative process.”

 There are four ways I 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.

This video is my workflow for shaping in one anterior central.  It is fun! the video will review the following:

  • Shaping steps
  • How much to texture the ceramic
  • Bur strategies
