Did you know you could get a dental crown in Wayne, NJ, in just one dental appointment or the next day?

If you’ve had to get a dental crown in the past then you probably came into the office multiple times for treatment. For someone with a busy schedule, the idea of having to schedule several dental visits just to get one dental crown can feel rather frustrating. With incredible advancements in dental technology, your dentists Dr. Maria Ambrosio and Dr. Wilson Maldonado can design, fabricate, and fit your crown in only one visit.

What are same-day crowns or next-day crowns?

Using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology, we are able to craft beautiful, natural-looking ceramic crowns in only one visit. This technology also promises a crown that fits more precisely and offers superior aesthetics comparable to natural teeth.

How do E4D CAD/CAM crowns work?

Instead of fussing with messy molds, we now use a handheld camera that can take 3D images of your tooth quickly and effectively, and then upload them to our computer. From there we use our CAD software to design a crown that will give you the best shape and color to match the rest of your smile. Using this computerized camera over traditional molds to create impressions of your smile will offer more precise measurements, which also means a better-fitting crown.

After we design your crown, the information is directed from our computer to a milling station that will chisel out your restoration. Once this is done, we will fit you with your new same-day/next-day dental crown. This whole process only takes about 1.5 hours and it’s all done from the comfort of our practice.

Are same-day/next-day crowns in Wayne, NJ, right for me?

Our E4D crowns are a great way to fix a patient’s damaged tooth. If you have a weak or damaged tooth, we can often restore it with a same-day/next-day crown. They offer the same fit, function, and esthetics as traditional crowns, but are provided in a shorter amount of time so you can have a restored smile faster. Our dental team can examine your smile during your consultation and determine if same-day crowns are right for you.

If you are dealing with a cracked or damaged tooth, same-day dental crowns could restore your smile quickly and effectively. To find out if you’re an ideal candidate for same-day dental crowns, call Dr. Ambrosio and Dr. Maldonado of Valley Dental Arts in Wayne, NJ, today at (973) 694-9080.

Your smile is often the first impression you put out onto the world, caring about its appearance is only natural. Your Wayne, NJ, dental specialists offer a variety of treatments that will return function to damaged or diseased teeth, but just as important is having teeth that will look natural and healthy. To learn more about their cosmetic dentistry offerings, get in contact with Dr. Maria Ambrosio and Dr. Wilson Maldonado of Valley Dental Arts.

Teeth Whitening

If you simply wish for a smile that's brighter, whiter, and is sure to catch the eye, then a professional teeth whitening may be all you need. Whether in the office or with take-home trays, you will be able to make your teeth multiple shades whiter, and in a much safer way, than with over the counter products.

Bonding and Tooth-Colored Fillings

For teeth with small chips or cracks, composite bonding can recreate their natural shape. This compound is also often used for fillings that will not stand out and will look just like they're part of teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have teeth with a variety of concerns that you wish to address with one treatment, then porcelain veneers may be your solution. They can provide you with a full smile makeover with a relatively little reshaping of your teeth. Veneers are thin but very durable porcelain caps that are bonded directly to your teeth, giving your smile a brand new look.

Dental Implants

Of all the available treatments dental implants are the most durable. The implant itself is a titanium post that is permanently attached to the bone in your jaw. Onto the implant, a crown is attached which will give you a tooth as secure as your natural ones, and that will definitely look the part. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, without impacting their neighbors, unlike bridgework. But they can also function to replace multiple teeth, even full dentures.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Wayne, NJ

The right treatment for you will depend heavily on your expectations and your dental health and health habits. Some procedures cannot be performed if you're a smoker, or without first addressing problems like decay or gum disease.

So don't waste any more time wishing for a perfect smile, take the first step toward it, make an appointment today. Call Dr. Ambrosio and Dr. Maldonado of Valley Dental Arts in Wayne, NJ, by dialing (973) 694-9080.
