CEREC Same-Day Crowns

If you’ve ever had to get a crown, you know the process can be uncomfortable and time consuming. Our office offers same-day crowns created using CAD/CAM technology on our CEREC system. 

What does this mean for you?

For one thing, it means that there is no more waiting for your impression to be sent out to another company while you hope that it is done correctly the first time. It also practically eliminates the need for temporary crowns. 

Dr. Pete will make your crown while you are in the office, meaning you no longer have to wait days or even weeks for your crown to come in. Less time spent in our dental chair means more time doing the things that you need (and want) to do!

Using the CEREC system, Dr. Pete can produce a comfortable, properly fitting, and natural-looking crown while you wait. We work with you one-on-one to offer you the right crown for your needs and lifestyle. 

Cleanings & Preventive Exams

Regular cleanings and check-ups are a great way to maintain and achieve great dental health. These regular visits can help us catch decay or other issues right from the start, reducing the chances of you needing extensive care. 

Proper dental hygiene at home can also go a long way in maintaining great dental health. Brushing twice daily with toothpaste can help lower the amount of bacteria-causing plaque left behind from your food and drinks. Flossing after brushing can get any extra food particles that have gotten stuck in between your teeth and helps to remove plaque beneath the gumline. 

Great dental health requires daily maintenance and regular visits to the dentist – we will work closely with you to help you keep your smile bright! 

Cosmetic/Esthetic Dentistry

Are you unhappy with the way that your smile looks? If you are, then there's a good chance that esthetic dentistry may be right for you. If your teeth are discolored, worn, gapped, or even missing, the team at our Teaneck, NJ dental office has the training and experience to make your smile brighter and happier with natural-looking results. We offer a range of dental services so that you and Dr. Pete can decide which ones will work the best to help you reach your goals. 

We have the professional Zoom! Teeth Whitening system available in both in-office and take-home options. Our in-office system can actually improve your smile in as little as one hour. Dental implants, bridges, dentures, and veneers are also available for those looking to replace or restore missing, damaged, or gapped teeth. 

We offer many different financing options and can help you maximize your yearly insurance benefits so you can get a smile that you are happy to show off. 

Dental Implants

If you have a missing tooth, chances are you notice it every time you look in the mirror. Traditional tooth replacement options are temporary and require extra work on your part. Dental bridges connect the “new” tooth to existing teeth, breaking down the structure of otherwise healthy teeth. Over time, the tooth that is used to support the bridge can wear down and become loose itself. Dentures are removable, not as secure, and require extra maintenance and cleaning.

Dental implants offer a more permanent solution. They are both natural looking and fully functional. Since they become a part of your mouth, there is no need to remove or clean them specially; you just continue your regular dental hygiene routine, including regular check-ups and cleanings at our office, and you’re good to go. 

Our dental team knows how important it is to have teeth that look great and feel great, and that’s why we offer dental implants that can last a lifetime! 

Prosthodontics

Along with the necessary dental training that is required to become a general dentist, prosthodontists continue on to complete the additional education to become a specialist. This extra education teaches the dentist how to properly fix dental structures and offer dental prosthetics to replace missing or damaged teeth. Specialized training and experience mean that prosthodontists have gone the extra mile to offer the most up-to-date technologies for dental implants. 

Only 2% of American dentists continue after dental school to complete the training to become prosthodontists. Dr. Pete is an experienced prosthodontist who has gone above and beyond the average training. He even teaches prosthodontics to dental students. His extra experience makes our Teaneck, NJ dental office an excellent choice for anyone who is choosing a new dentist.
