    Hi everyone I know everyone does awesome work with E4D and NEVO,  I am going to start a post on single unit anteriors and hope to take a look at all the good work done out there.     This case I used E.max B1 LT and did a bit of characterization:     [attachment=7:Screen…

    Hi Yash.   In this case made 2 years ago,  I painted a thin line on the palatal side of the incisal edge with concentrated white and on the mesial and distal corners, still on the incisal edge, with blue. Now I don't use the HT blocks very often because I, as you, find them too…

    I am not sure that it is a good idea. Prefer old-fashioned hearts, birds and flowers like this http://flowertattooideas.com/top-30-awesome-small-cherry-blossom-tattoos/

    After the eMax is milled, how are you finishing your crowns? a.  are you adding anatomy via a handpiece? b.  How are you staining and glazing?  in particular, I will be painting on some A stain and it will come out spotty (like a cheetah) sometimes (see photos).  Do you mix the A stain with…

    Hi all! Today I want to share my very simple protocol to make posterior restorations more natural. Of course it's not necessarily. But my patients and me are a little bit crazy about aesthetics and natural looking restorations... yep! even posteriors! :roll:   Well, the tooth #19. Onlay. Enjoy! :cool:  [attachment=1000:Слайд1.PNG] [attachment=1001:Слайд2.PNG] [attachment=1002:Слайд3.PNG] [attachment=1003:Слайд4.PNG] [attachment=1004:Слайд5.PNG]…

    I am having a problem with my empress glazing. It frequently will come out of the furnace quite mottled,almost milky looking. I am using the same some of brush to paint on the glaze as I do for my emax and this is glazing up fine. Can anybody suggest anything?

    Hey guys, getting into incorporating my milled crowns into larger tx plans. Sorry if this is confusing but go with me for a second-- Full arch or full mouth cases with posterior long span bridgework that I'm not comfortable doing in-house emax. Anyone have great esthetic results marrying anterior emax HT with posterior lava bridgework?…

    I agree, it depends on how picky pt is. But we did a full mouth where anteriors 6-11 are empress multi, posterior is emax lt, lower anteriors emax lt because 24-26 is a bridge. Posterior bridges and implant crowns made by outside lab using Emax lt. It all blended in nicely as empress multi is…

    Does anyone have a solution for empress crown. We stained and glazed crown with a lot of white striations to match natural teeth. Anterior crown and pt. Now noticed area close to inter proximal where not as white and doesn't like it. I had a product couple years ago to HFl crown with dam and…

    You may want to consider removing the glaze before etching the glass. (followed by drying, silanating, and applying composite stains)   APF fluoride for 4 minutes is a safer alternative to HF etch in the mouth.  Also excited to see how Ivoclar's new non HF based glass etch performs...  This doesn't sound easy on an…

    Hi All,   I ran across this free online course on color matching.  It's a very good review for some and an introduction for others to the science of color in dentistry.  Great also for self calibration.     Alex

    When the shade is not spot on...use the try in pastes to help enhance the match...or base only....just turn off dental light and headlight...no "oops" setting of the bond! XL brightens, A4 or A3 warms to more yellow... Terry Yacovitch

    Charlie, at every occasion at each conference we attend, we take the time to chat at each manufacturers' booth. Relate to them the desire for just that, HT EMax blocks...if we all ask...we all will eventually receive...   Terry Yacovitch , Montreal

    Recently took the Smile Design Course at D4D taught by Lee Culp. It truly was amazing and changed the way I look at anterior esthetics and the lab work it takes to design and create a great case. Patient had severe decay interproximally. Pre-op Picture above. Another Pre-op. Prepped: Notice the interproximal prepping to remove…

    This 50 year old male wanted the space closed between 6 and 7. I took an impression constructed the veneers on a model and bonded them. I used EMax LT A2 blocks. The patient was very happy. Dr. Michael Raboy 7115 Guilford Dr. Frederick MD 21702 240 349 1550

    Just saw this case. Really well done. I assume you prepped out the palatal overlap of #7? An E4D dentist in Frederick...who'd have thought? (I'm from Thurmont BTW)

    An elderly gentleman (new patient) presented with a fractured off lateral incisor. The tooth was rootfilled, (poorly) so one rootfilling, fiber post and composite core later, with an e.max A3 LT crown done in two appointments on the same day, and his problem went away. Patients absolutely love this option. Pre treatment Xray Post endo…

    Wow the staining was perfect! Was the patient thrilled with the same day crown? I know they should have been. E4d is a wonderful asset to have in our office.
