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.
