Local dentists can make crowns in 'one-stop shop'
Dr. Brad Dickey looks at teeth on the Cerec 3-D software program. The technology allows him to make adjustments to a tooth and send them to a milling machine, which makes tooth restorations. (Dan Evans/News-Sentinel)

The words "You need a crown" may not be words a patient would
like to hear while at the dentist's office.
Patients like John Hewitt of Lodi have had impressions taken,
had a temporary crown put on, and waited two weeks while the
impression was sent to the lab. They come back, have the temporary
crown popped off and the new crown is placed on the tooth.
