CNC milling my new dental crown

My dentist installed a crown on my front tooth yesterday. Only ~45 minutes elapsed from the time he scanned my tooth to the moment he permanently installed the color-matched crown on my tooth. He used this system to scan and manufacture the crown. And here is a video of the milling:


Open wide and sit VERY STILL…


My dentist did this in the past, but he has gotten back to sending them out. He said it took too long to mill them in house and have patients waiting around or having to come back. He has a couple of Form 3 3D printers that he still uses to make various things like guides for implants, etc. One of the crowns I have was cut in house while he was still doing it.

I was happy to avoid a second visit and some of the problems that I’ve heard can happen with temporary crowns.
