Dental Crowns & Bridges in Rochester Hills Dental
Dental crowns are one of the most common forms of rehabilitation for patients who need to address dental concerns. When a patient has a filling that is too large to fill with bonding material, or for a patient who has undergone a root canal, dental crowns can be placed over the top of the tooth.
Crowns help to protect a tooth when it has weakened or lost much of its original enamel. Patients who want strength and durability may opt for gold crowns, while those who want a cosmetic look will typically enjoy porcelain crowns. Both are strong materials that can protect a natural tooth from damage.
Dental bridges let you smile with confidence
This brief video is packed with information on the dental bridge procedure. This non-surgical treatment replaces one or several missing teeth, restoring ability to eat, speak, and smile with self-assurance. For dental bridges in the Rochester Hills, MI area, call John L. Aurelia, D.D.S., PLLC at 248-651-6810.
A dental bridge is a very common way to replace a missing tooth. The adjacent teeth on each side are drilled down slightly to accommodate them for the crowns connected to the dental bridge. The false tooth replaces the missing tooth, and the crowns on the surrounding teeth help support and keep the bridge in place. This is a cost-effective way of addressing gaps and spaces in the smile caused by missing teeth, and is a wonderful alternative for patients that are not viable candidates for dental implants.
Inlays and Onlays
For patients who have cavities that are too large for filling materials but are not large enough to require a dental crown, inlays and onlays may be used. In teeth that still have a lot of vital tooth structure, inlays and onlays are more conservative options. These are restorations that are fabricated to fit into the tooth similar to a jigsaw puzzle piece in order to replace the area of the natural tooth that has gone missing due to cavities and decay. These can be done with a variety of materials, including porcelain and gold.
At Dr. Aurelia's office, all restorations are made by local laboratories for fast, reliable, quality service and restorations. Unlike other dentists who use overseas labs, Dr. Aurelia believes in supporting local businesses and getting the best in quality and premium materials from dental labs in the area.

"Received my second crown from Dr. John Aurelia to which it was a great experience, something I thought I would never say about a dentist. He and his staff made me feel as comfortable as I ever have when visiting a dentist. Thank you all for being so kind and making my experience a pleasant one.
