$500

crownMy trusty stainless steel crown that I've had since I was eight or so finally gave out on me. I have a fancy new porcelain crown that was made using a $12K camera that captures a 3-D image of the tooth, and then some 3-D modelling software that generates an appropriate crown for the tooth, and finally a $100K dual-diamond bit cutter that mills the crown out of a block of porcelain (of the correct yellow hue for my teeth). I was rather impressed, in a dorky way, how computer technology is taking over the dentists office.

You totally missed your chance at making a bit of your own e-bay style reflecto-porn.

Ken:

LOL. I have to go in tomorrow for some adjustments. Maybe I'll talk to my dentist about diversifying his business.
