If you have severely stained, broken or chipped teeth it might be time to consider a cosmetic dentistry solution. Most procedures can be completed in one visit. Thanks to advances in Sedation Dentistry techniques these procedures are not only quick, but can be completed with practically no pain or discomfort. There is no reason to put off the dental repair you need any longer. But with so many different repair options, you may be confused about what would work best for you. The first step toward fixing your smile is to make an appointment with Dr. Salivonchik today. If you live near Coplay or Allentown, PA, Dr. Salivonchik can help you find the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution.
- Cosmetic Bonding– A tooth-colored composite material is bonded to the tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened and polished. For patients with minor cosmetic flaws, cosmetic bonding is the answer. It can fix a broken or chipped tooth, close small gaps between teeth and fill in cavities. However, unlike cosmetic crowns and porcelain veneers, dental bonds can become discolored over time.
- Cosmetic Veneers– Veneers are tooth-colored shells that cover your natural teeth. Made of porcelain or composite, cosmetic veneers can easily repair discolored, slightly crooked or gapped teeth. The veneers are completed in three visits where the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel, take an impression of your teeth, send the impressions to a dental lab for fabrication and then apply the veneers in the final visit. Cosmetic veneers are durable and permanent.
- CEREC Crowns– Traditionally dental crowns took two to three visits to complete, but CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crowns can be applied in just one visit. The dentist will take a 3D image of your tooth for the CEREC system which can mill an all-ceramic restoration in about an hour. CEREC crowns are highly durable and permanent.

Among the many tools that are improving dental care, CEREC CAD/CAM technology is one of the most notable. In the past, it would take at least two visits to restore a patient’s decayed or fractured tooth with a crown. But now, with CEREC CAD/CAM, it’s possible to create and attach a custom-made crown in just one appointment.
That’s good news for our Coplay-area patients. With a single appointment, Dr. Salivonchik can improve both the appearance and functionality of your smile.
Speed is just one part of the equation, though. Also important is the material the crown is made of.
Dr. Salivonchik uses durable, esthetic e.max porcelain to create strong, natural-looking restorations. The tagline for e.max’s quality material is “Smile to the max,” and patients can truly expect great results. Crowns milled with special e.max porcelain look natural and can be cared for the way a normal tooth can—with simple brushing and flossing. What’s more, crowns made with e.max porcelain contain no metal and have twice the strength of conventional porcelain.
Here’s what you can expect from your visit to Dr. Salivonchik. First, we’ll take a digital scan of the tooth that’s being restored. Then, the information we collect will be transmitted to our CEREC unit, which will begin milling your restoration while you wait comfortably in our office. The milling process only takes about an hour to complete. When your crown is ready, Dr. Salivonchik will attach it, putting the finishing touch on your procedure.
