yes, the tooth is numbed, and cemented in place with a special "glue"

Hi, my dentist tells me I need a crown &  it will cost about R4000, can it really be that much? what is the main cost involved? Apparently it can be done in one appointment in his surgery, approx 2 hours, he uses a porcelain block that they diamond cut?
