The CDA was recently alerted to a problem with the coding and representation of indirect composite restorations, specifically procedures that involve taking an impression, making the restoration out of oven curable composite and cementing the restoration in place. We have been told that some dentists are representing the procedure to the patient as a porcelain crown and coding this procedure as such.
