CEREC onlay is one of the most common indications for patient restoration – be it on a vital or root-canal treated teeth. The sheer quantity and frequency of these procedures may result in a large number of errors unless one is intimately familiar with all the strengths and weaknesses of the used work-protocol and applied materials. The author focuses on detailed workflow such as:
Preparation techniques and differences between of preparing a vital versus endodontically treated tooth for CEREC onlay
Comparison of scanning techniques used by Bluecam, Omnicam and Apollo DI scanners
Variance in quality and machining precision in different indicated materials –blocks
Possibilities of milling – different milling process techniques or grinding
The effect of software parameter changes on final results

Often, we find localized subgingival margin that can complicate the use of indirect adhesive restoration (isolation, scanning, etc.) and subsequently hinders restoration durability and relationship with the periodontal tissues .Thus the author will discuss in detail the Deep Margin Elevation technique.

The Autor also focuses on postendodontic treatment – endocrowns.
- Hard tissue preparation – right shape of cavity
- Options of Anchoring
- Material choices
- Errors and conclusion

The presentation will include several supporting Case Reports.
