Why a Rochester area dentist may recommend quality dental crowns

Dental crowns are an extremely common dental restoration used in the practice of John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC. Patients in and around the Rochester Hills area may benefit from the placement of quality dental crowns when certain dental situations arise.

Dental crowns are made of porcelain and are often used to help restore a tooth and maintain its strength and integrity. This can help in reducing the need for a permanent extraction. Patients can extend the life of a natural tooth even if it has experienced trauma.

Most patients have dental crowns placed due to an injury to the tooth. This is when the enamel of the tooth is fractured and it may be at risk of breaking further. The crown can be bonded over the structure of the tooth to give it protection. This is often done on teeth near the back of the mouth that have to withstand strong chewing forces.

Another reason why patients may need quality dental crowns is due to a large area of decay. A dental filling may not be enough to restore the tooth as it may require the removal of some of the essential structure to place. Dental crowns may be placed over teeth to give them more strength after dental fillings have been placed.

Quality dental crowns may also be used in instances such as for the restoration of a dental implant. Patients who have lost natural teeth and have had dental implants placed can use a full dental crown over the top of the implant to act as a false tooth. This restores the function and beauty of the smile. The dental crown is fabricated to look like the existing teeth for seamless integration.

Additionally, crowns are also used to fabricate dental bridges. Crowns are made and fused with one or more pontics (false teeth) to create a dental bridge. The adjacent teeth are prepared and the crowns are placed to offer support for the false teeth in the middle. This is done when patients are missing natural teeth from their smile.
