Mastering Anterior CEREC Aesthetics
This class is designed for the serious CEREC user with the desire to take aesthetic dentistry to a new level.
Obtaining results that will rival nature begins in the planning phase. Being well prepared for the aesthetic
clinical objectives will simplify the chairside experience. The CEREC application to aesthetic dentistry should
be seamless when operating in a systematic format.
Mastering anterior CEREC aesthetics is about understanding and implementing a systematic sequence that
will be dependable with each aesthetic case. The fundamental aesthetic principles taught in this class are a
reﬂection of Dr. Klim’s 25 years of clinical experience and years of post-graduate teaching in aesthetic dentistry.
Dr. Klim’s classes are not only unique because of his mastery of CAD/CAM aesthetic dentistry. They are
customized to your learning style and they target the primary understanding you need to raise your clinical
aesthetic skills. Class size is small; designed for your personalized tutoring.

CADStar™ CAD/CAM Aesthetic Curriculum ⎯
Fundamental Principles of Anterior Aesthetic Dentistry
Understanding and sequencing your steps prior to the clinical experience will signiﬁcantly
simplify the CAD/CAM optical capture, virtual design, and ﬁnishing of the milled restoration(s).
Aesthetic CAD/CAM Preparation Architecture and Optical Impression
Desired clinical outcome, pretreatment conditions, and CEREC optical scan conditions will
impact the preparation architecture. You will learn the preparation principles and optical scan
techniques that will yield excellent virtual models.
Simplify Virtual Design and Maximize Outcome
The secret to simplifying virtual design is the pretreatment plan and preparation design. Then
the optical capture and design process will become second nature. With a systematic
approach, learn how this part of the process should be the easiest part.
Aesthetic Ceramic Selection
My block selection is primarily determined by desired brilliance and transparency for the
demands of the case. Learn the Klim “depth-layering-inﬂuence” system for ceramic selection.
Customizing the Incisal Edge
With the new layered blocks, we can customize incisal characteristics without full cutbacks.
This will retain optimal strength and function for the incisal edge. Learn the two primary
approaches Dr. Klim uses to customize the incisal edge.
Texturing, Glazing, and Superﬁcial Gloss Finish ( “Fingerprinting” )
The artistic caveat to fooling the eye starts with tooth proﬁle. In addition, customizing and
texturing the reﬂective and deﬂective surfaces creates an individuality and uniqueness for each
case. Learn the systematic approach to “ﬁngerprint” the case with conﬁdence.
Adhesive Process and Bonding Resin Effects
Proper techniques for humidity and soft tissue control will assure a successful adhesive
process. Learn Dr. Klim’s systematic ﬁnal resin color effects and adhesive protocol.
