What is the purpose of using dental crowns and bridges for Rochester, MI area patients?

Drs. John L. Aurelia and Dina Khoury are dentists who uses dental crowns in a variety of ways in their practice.

Two common dental restorations used in the practice of Drs. John L. Aurelia and Dina Khoury of Rochester, MI are dental crowns and dental bridges. Both these restorations are made of porcelain and have a variety of ways they can be used. When restoring the smile, many patients find that these treatments have a vital purpose in achieving oral health and wellness.

Dental crowns explained

Drs. John L. Aurelia and Dina Khoury are dentists who uses dental crowns in a variety of ways in their practice. This porcelain restoration is used to cover the visible areas of a tooth. This restoration can be used in a variety of ways.

  • Dental crowns cover teeth that may be weakened by procedures such as root canal therapy or large fillings
  • A dental crown can be placed over a dental implant abutment to act as a false tooth
  • Dental crowns are fused to false teeth to create a dental bridge

In most of these situations, the dental crown is used to protect a tooth or to replace a tooth. Dental crowns are fabricated of ceramic because this material is strong and natural-looking. When done correctly, a dental crown can cover a tooth and blend in seamlessly with the smile.

Dental bridges explained

Another restorative option available for patients is the dental bridge. A dental bridge is a ceramic restoration that incorporates dental crowns. On each end of the bridge is a crown, and in-between, they are false teeth called pontics. This single restoration is then used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. The dental bridge “bridges” the gap that is left behind when teeth are lost or extracted. The crowns on each end are placed over adjacent teeth to hold the bridge in place, ensuring it provides a stable repair. Dental bridges are more affordable than dental implants, yet more permanent than partial dentures. Many patients may find that this middle-of-the-road option is often covered in part by dental insurance, making it an economical solution for repairing the smile.
