CEREC: What Is It & How It Benefits You

CEREC-AC-with-BluecamAdvances in dental technology have revolutionized modern dental care. Pennington, NJ dentist Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci and her associates use the latest in dental technology in order to provide their patients with a more accurate diagnosis for lasting, less painful treatment. One machine that has changed dentistry is the CEREC technology. Family & Spa dentistry is one of the only dentist offices in the Trenton area to use CEREC technology. CEREC now makes it possible for patients to enjoy the benefits of same-day dental restorations.

How Does CEREC work?

CEREC-AC-with-BluecamCEREC technology is a computer CAD/CAM software. Using highly sophisticated digital imagining, CEREC can accurately design and fabricate high quality ceramic dental restorations all at our Pennington dentist office in about just one hour. The digital images are uploaded to the software for designing, color matching and then milling of your new dental crown, dental veneer or onlay. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will prepare the tooth as needed and the new restoration will be permanently secured after being properly fitted and adjusted.

What Are The Benefits of CEREC?

CEREC allows for highly accurate results and eliminates the need for messy impression trays. Because CERREC can design and fabricate dental restorations in just one visit, it may save patients time and money. Same day restorations are ideal for patients with a broken tooth, or restoration in a visible part of their smile.

Am I a good candidate for same day dental restoration using CEREC technology?

Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci believes in quality dental care that addresses and treats the root cause of your oral health concerns. Every patient will receive a thorough and personalized dental health consultation to determine the best treatment for their needs. Same day dentistry is often used to restore broken dental crowns, chipped teeth, or to replace teeth in the “smile-zone” for patients with otherwise stable oral health. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will help you determine which treatment will offer your optimal oral health.

At Pennington, NJ Family and Spa Dentistry, we encourage patients to maintain their oral health to allow their natural teeth to remain functional for as long as possible. The advancements in dental technologies such as CEREC make this easier and more efficient for both dentist and patient. If you have a damaged or missing tooth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci or one of her associates in our Pennington dentist office and see how dental technology can help you to improve your smile!

  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.


  • I always have an outstanding visit and just recently referred two more people who raved about the experience they had! The proper time and attention to detail is always taken on every appointment.

  • I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because I had bad experiences. Then a friend referred me to the Spa Dentistry office. I usually see Dr. Silk. I have a lot of confidence in him and am very comfortable with everyone in the office now. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great! I highly recommend the dental group to anyone because they are very personable and always make me feel comfortable.

    Kim and Ian

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

    Gayle D.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...

    David, Priscilla and Lynn

  • I want to thank you for going out of your way countless times to correct and fix my two permanent crowns. It is rare to meet a person of your character. I am lucky to have you and your magnificent staff care for me.
