Many dentists have questions about how much to prep the tooth prior to placing the OVC One Visit Crown. If you haven’t already, make sure you read this blog post on how to achieve correct occlusal distance when placing the One Visit Crown. One of the benefits of the OVC is that is doesn’t need an invasive circumferential prep so is more conservative for the tooth.
