My nubbin. Please don't envy that gorgeous face.
All those pictures create a 3-D image of my tooth. That image is sent to the back to a machine.
That machine changes a cube of purple porcelain into the crown by using high pressure water jets. Crazy right?
Boom! The purple tooth. The dentist then drilled that bad boy to fit over my nubbin. Once he determined it was the right fit, he put enamel over it and baked it into the faux white tooth I'm rocking now. Entire process? About 2.5 hours. Neat.
