If you have a chipped tooth, noticeable gaps and spaces, or cavities, bonding can be the solution you need.

We are true artisans at enamel shaping to correct overlapping teeth and smooth rough edges.
Veneers provide an immediate fix to straighten, whiten and repair chipped or worn teeth. They are 1mm thick sheets of porcelain custom made to be bonded to the front surface of your teeth. The tooth must be filed to accommodate the veneer. When you're ready to speak with a cosmetic dentist in Allentown, PA, give Dr. Pellegrino a call for a consultation. After a thorough evaluation, we will outline a plan to give you the best smile of your life.
A dental crown or cap
is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over a weakened or damaged tooth to restore its natural appearance and prevent further deterioration. Crowns are used in cases of severely chipped or broken teeth, to cover the exposed area of a tooth following a root canal procedure, to replace a large old filling or for cosmetic reasons. When a filling is not a viable solution to correcting the damage sustained by a tooth, crowns can provide a long-term solution to restoring the function of your teeth and enhancing the appearance of your smile. Crowns can be made of all metal, all porcelain, or a combination of both. Because all crowns are custom made for each patient, it may take more than one appointment to complete. At your first visit, the area is numbed to make you comfortable.
will use a dental hand piece to shape and prepare the tooth so that the crown can properly fit over it. Next, impressions are taken of the prepared tooth. Often times, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth while the final crown is being made. The impressions are used to fabricate a model of your mouth on which the final crown is made. When your final crown is ready, dental cement is placed into the crown and it is cemented to the prepared tooth. You tooth is now restored to a healthy and functioning state!
