While the prosthesis is produced, the monolithic block of lithium disilicate is cut with the help of a milling machine. As the result, the crown consists of a single block. Once the crown is produced in a suitable size for the patient, it is sent to the dentist. In the following session, the ceramic tooth is applied to natural teeth.
Sessions needed may vary depending on different elements like the patient profile. After the treatment, the dentist informs the patient about taking good care.
