—ONE BAKE+ TECHNIQUE & AN “UNORTHODOX” WAY OF LAYERING A CROWN WITHOUT STAINS.— As you see in the first photo, after staining the substructe with wash firing, I’m lengthening the substructure with enamel (pi2). Next, (second photo), for the insical area and to create a natural-looking, translucent dentine and with the correct histo-anatomy, I’m using the dentin recipe that’s given by my application.
After that, I’m creating the opacious body. Again, this is a recipe given by my own created application.
Now it’s time to create the internal effects with Opal Effect Violet and Special Effect Citrine. Between this layer and the DEC, I’m creating the crack line on the distal line angle with deep dentin. ---CREATIVITY-----
When we have the correct dentin recipes and the incisal canvas, it all comes to mimic the natural tooth with ceramic powders.
For the internal effects, you can use your creativity and decide how intense you want to make these effects. ---TIP---
In this case the skin enamel is a thin layer of Opal effect 1 and power incisal 2. TIP: Make the skin enamel on the opacious dentin as thin as possible, otherwise you will lose the correct appearance and brightness because the enamel lowers the luminosity.
After firing, I’m trimming the crown into shape and I’m glaze firing without using any stains. ---EASIER- FASTER- PREDICTABLE---
This process is an example of the One Bake+ Technique that I’m developing through research and different kinds of cases. In other words, it’s the Easier-Faster-Predictable way to have natural-looking results.
I hope you enjoy it ;-) If you have any questions let me know! -
Just had an amazing interview with Master Claude Sieber. He shared so much knowledge about work and wisdom about life, that it’s going to inspire and be an eye-opener for many people. Can’t wait to share it with the dental world through the Labline Magazine.
Stay tuned! “If you are doing something, do it right or don’t do it all”
The article on using the One Bake+ Technique for an accurate Shade Matching is just published in the Dutch Magazine ”Dentaallab”. What is One Bake+ Technique?
It’s a calculated layering strategy. Now we can measure and predict the influence of each layer, substructure, dentine, internal effects, skin enamel, on top of each other and have an accurate color result and an identical shade match after the first firing. You can also use this strategy when more than one firings are needed. It sounds complicated but it’s easier than you think!

—HOW TO HAVE PREDICTABLE SHADE MATCH IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION —
Zirconia crown layered with Noritake CZR.
Firstly, to have an accurate end result, it’s very important to control the color of the background.
In this case, the background color is very dark, as you see in the photo.
In this kind of cases you can do two things:
You can either use a pfm solution or white opaque zirconia. I chose the second, with 0.5mm thickness.
Now, because it’s white, we must stain the substructure.
When staining the substructure make the chroma (a+b) as close as possible to the target chroma, but always keep the luminosity (L) 2% brighter than the target value.
To create depth at the incisal area, I mixed Incisal Blue 1 with Incisal Blue 2 and to increase the chroma I used Mamelon Orange 1 and Red from the internal staining kit. While staining the chroma, I always compare it with the Vita 3D master in order to work faster.
Then, I used Opacious Body Pink Pale for the first layer because it has a lot of red in it.
After that, the dentin recipe to achieve the accurate result is Opacious Body Pink Pale mixed with Body Dentin C2 (I get the recipes from my own application that I’ve created)
To create the discoloration in the incisal area, I used Sunbright and Gray from the Modifier Gray. I’ve found out that the Grey Modifier gives beautiful depth, but use it very subtle because it’s intense.
I used the internal staining technique to create the cracks and as skin enamel I used LT1
For the cervical translucency, I used ccv-2.
The total thickness of this crown is 1.5mm, so I had 1mm space for the ceramics.
When the patient comes for the final photos I will show you the end result.
