Dr. Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci is a general dentist in the Hopewell Township, NJ area that will restore a structurally unsound tooth with a dental crown. A dental crown, or ‘tooth cap’, can be used as a restorative treatment to protect a tooth damaged by tooth decay. It can also be used in cosmetic dentistry to change the shape or length of a tooth. Our dentists can also replace a metal dental crown, a broken or worn dental crown with a new porcelain dental crown that looks and feels like your natural tooth.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. It adds strength, aesthetics and protection to teeth damaged by tooth decay or trauma. A dental crown is stain and decay resistant and can last for many years. Our Hopewell Township, NJ dentist office uses porcelain dental crowns and many of our dental crown procedures can be completed in a single visit using CEREC technology.

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.Elizabeth
Prior to my involvement with Vagnozzi-Bucci and her associates, I had been experiencing multiple dental problems and enduring an uncomfortable fragile partial denture, which never completely matched my tooth color. Thus, I had been reluctant to smile. The dental work that was constructed for me is beautiful and natural, now…Cathy
Dental Crown What to Expect
Dental Crown Process
At your consultation, Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will examine your teeth and overall dental health. This exam will help us to design a personalized treatment plan that will restore the tooth to optimal health and function.
Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will then prepare the tooth/teeth by removing a small amount of the natural tooth structure to accommodate the dental crown. A temporary tooth cap will be placed on the tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated.
In about 2 to 3 weeks, you will return to our dentist office where Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci will attach the dental crown, make any necessary adjustments and secure it for a permanent fit.
Same Day Dental Crowns
Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci is one of the few dentists in the Hopewell Township, NJ area to offer same day dental crowns. With the use of advanced CEREC technology, our dentists can design, fabricate and place a porcelain dental crown in a single visit. CEREC utilizes CAD/CAM technology to ensure that the porcelain dental crown will fit perfectly over a decayed or damaged tooth, eliminating the need for a temporary crown. This also eliminates the need for messy dental impressions. You will be able to eat and drink normally following your appointment with little to no pain or sensitivity.
