Dental Crowns Pennington NJ

Pennington dentist Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci, DMD uses dental crowns to improve both the function and appearance of teeth. Dental crowns add strength and protection to teeth that have been compromised by decay or trauma. Dental crowns can also be used in cosmetic dentistry to change the shape or length of teeth.

We use porcelain dental crowns and many of our dental crown procedures can be completed in a single visit using CEREC technology.

About Porcelain Dental Crowns

A dentist can choose amongst many materials for creating a dental crown. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci chooses porcelain dental crowns because of their superior esthetics and long-term durability.

Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns

  • Metal free – do not cause discoloration along the gum like conventional metal dental caps
  • Natural aesthetics – porcelain dental crowns are made of layers of fine ceramic material, to reflect light like natural tooth enamel
  • Long lasting – porcelain dental crowns are highly durable, as well as stain resistant.

What is Same Day Dentistry

The office of Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci, DMD, PC is one of a few dentists in the Princeton area to integrate advanced CEREC technology into her dentist office for same day treatment with dental crowns. CEREC utilizes CAD/CAM technology, allowing our dentists to design, fabricate and place a porcelain dental crown in a single visit.

The computer-aided design component ensures CEREC crowns fit perfectly over decayed or damaged tooth, eliminating the need for a temporary crown. You will be able to eat and drink normally following your appointment with little to no pain or sensitivity.

  • 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 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.

  • 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...
