Lake Orion area dentist describes the effectiveness of dental bridges

Repairing a smile after tooth loss can be done in a variety of ways. Patients who have lost teeth from disease, extraction, or trauma are encouraged to speak with their dentist about ways to restore the functionality and beauty of their original smile. Dr. John L. Aurelia of the Lake Orion community has been able to help hundreds of patients with rejuvenating the smile after devastation in one of three ways: dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures.

Dental bridges are a wonderful middle-of-the-road solution. Dentures are removable and considered a more economical yet temporary method of repairing the smile. Dental implants, on the other hand, are more expensive but can last a lifetime. When patients want something in-between they may benefit most from dental bridges. Dental bridges are just as effective as other methods but can be a permanent AND economical option for many. In fact, Lake Orion area patients often ask about the effectiveness of dental bridges. Once placed, many patients will find they can enjoy their favorite foods again and smile with confidence—something they may not have been able to do in the past due to missing teeth.

Dental bridges are custom-made of porcelain. They use one or more false teeth and dental crowns to fabricate a single piece. The surrounding teeth are prepared by removing a thin portion of the enamel to allow room for the dental crowns to be bonded in place, thus aligning the false tooth in the proper location for optimum placement. Dr. John L. Aurelia can make precise bridges with the use of impressions and molds for an amazing fit and function.

If you live in the Lake Orion area and have considered a quality cosmetic dentist who can fabricate restorations such as dental bridges to repair the smile, contact Dr. John L. Aurelia and his team today to book an appointment and find out what method of treatment is most appropriate for you. A comprehensive evaluation and consultation with him can assist many patients in choosing what is best for their budget and their smile.

Terrible experience. I booked an appointment back in August for October 30 (first available). Not a big deal at all. I never received a confirmation call for my appointment which I thought was odd but still made the 30 minute drive to this highly rated offed to be told they didn’t have my appointment in part of their system but did have record of it on another part of the system. They told me I could wait and see if the next appointment didn’t show up, but the staff made it seem like it was my fault for showing up to an appointment where I didn’t get a confirmation call for. Nevertheless, I did have a text confirmation from when I scheduled the appointment months ago. Very disorganized office. Don’t waste your time. I’m sure the dentists themselves are wonderful but the office staff makes this place an office to avoid.
