Does the code D2751 Crown – Porcelain fused to predominantly base metal (or any crown material code) mean only the physical crown itself (like, the part I can place in my hand)? Or does that code also include the crown prep? (anesthesia, removal of decay, buildup for crown retention)
The code D2751 includes the crown prep, anesthetic, temporary crown and permanent crown. It does not include a crown build up, crown lenthening, or pins...these are billable seperately.
