Smiles can become damaged through a variety of factors. Tooth decay and gum disease, which are two of the most common dental health issues anyone can face, can cause a dental breakdown if they aren’t treated soon. Damage you may have sustained in an injury can contribute as well.
Thankfully, it’s possible to enjoy improved functionality and appearance again. With a full-mouth reconstruction from our Coplay office, we’re helping patients have a whole new smile using a variety of restorative services. Once complete, your new smile can help to reverse the effects of serious oral health problems and improve your sense of health and wellbeing again.
The services that may be used for a full-mouth reconstruction include:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Dental Implants
- Periodontal Therapy
- CEREC Crowns
- Inlays & Onlays
- Dentures & Partials
At a consultation appointment, Dr. Salivonchik will assess your needs and talk to you about your treatment options. We promise to deliver personalized care that helps you address your situation.

The New Year is still weeks away, but it’s not too soon to start thinking about what kind of services you might need for 2014. Every year, new patients embrace what’s possible with cosmetic dentistry, while others may already know about one or two restorative services they’ll need.
If you fall into either category, we want to encourage you to call Dr. Salivonchik’s Whitehall dental office for a late-2013 or early-2014 appointment. During your appointment, he’ll be happy to talk to you about what’s on your mind and the concerns you might have about the care you need. Dr. Salivonchik will also complete an oral health exam so he’s fully up to date on how your smile is currently doing.
Our combination of cosmetic and restorative services includes many of the best available today, including:
When deciding what services are ultimately right for you, we’ll consider a wide range of factors, among them your health and the goals you’ve already devised. We’re committed to making sure our Whitehall-area patients receive the personalized care they expect.
And for patients who choose teeth whitening, there’s an extra benefit. Dr. Salivonchik donates all teeth whitening fees to the Children’s Cancer Research Fund at the University of Minnesota. This lets patients do something good for others while at the same time improving the appearance of teeth and boosting self-confidence. You can learn more about our special program by visiting our teeth whitening page.

In our last post we talked about CEREC and how it’s making crown restorations easier and more convenient. Crowns are just the beginning, though. Our CEREC milling can also fabricate metal-free inlays and onlays that will blend in seamlessly with your smile.
It’s helpful to think of inlays and onlays as in-between services. Let’s say you have a big filling that needs to be replaced. On the one hand, you almost need more than a filling to put in its place; on the other, a full crown could almost be described as overkill. What you really need is a service that can bridge the gap between a filling and a crown—that’s where inlays and onlays come in.
Inlays are made to go between a tooth’s cusps, which are the bumps on top of a tooth. Onlays, meanwhile, are made to fit over one or more cusps. In both cases, because they’re being milled with Dr. Salivonchik’s CEREC machine, patients can look forward to getting the care they need in a single appointment instead of two or more.
Is an inlay or onlay right for you? To find out, call Dr. Salivonchik to reserve an appointment. During at a consultation at his Coplay dental office, Dr. Salivonchik can help you understand your needs and explain the best course of action that will work best for you. We’re proud to serve patients all around the Lehigh Valley area.

It’s not uncommon for patients to put off care because of a busy schedule. With so much to do, you might wonder if you really have time for a procedure that takes at least two appointments. Thankfully, with the advances being made in today’s dental technology, certain services are taking less time than they ever have.
One example of this is dental crowns. In the past, it took at least two visits to restore a chipped, broken, or decayed tooth with a crown. Now, with CEREC and e.max crowns, patients can get the custom-made restoration they need in a single appointment.
That’s because it only takes about two hours for CEREC’s in-office milling unit to fabricate a restoration. During that time, you can rest comfortably in Dr. Salivonchik’s Coplay office. Then, when the milling process is complete, we can attach your crown and have you on your way again with no need for a second appointment.
That also means you don’t have to worry about damaging or losing a temporary crown. Thanks to CEREC and e.max, the stress of restoring a tooth with a crown has been eliminated. Now the focus can be on what it should’ve been all along—giving you your best possible smile right when you need it.
To learn more about how Dr. Salivonchik can restore your tooth with CEREC, call our Coplay dental office today. Our office is located in Lehigh Valley and serves patients from Coplay, Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, The Poconos, and surrounding areas.
