Several types of dental crowns are available in Rochester Hills

Several types of dental crowns are available at John L. Aurelia, D.D.S., PLLC in Rochester Hills

Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that can be used to replace a missing tooth or strengthen a weakened tooth. At the office of Drs. John Aurelia and Dina Khoury DDS in Rochester Hills, we believe dental crowns are a natural looking and feeling solution that can last for many years.

Why patients may need a dental crown

 There are several situations that may require the use of a dental crown including:

  • Strengthen a weakened or cracked tooth
  • To restore functionality for a tooth that is broken
  • To protect a tooth with a large filling or root canal
  • As support for a dental bridge
  • To complete a dental implant restoration

 Types of dental crowns

 While there are several types of dental crowns, such as porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and gold, the one we use most commonly at our office in Rochester Hills is porcelain.

Porcelain is a strong ceramic that very closely resembles natural tooth enamel in color and translucency. Porcelain is durable enough to withstand biting and chewing and is also resistant to staining.

The dental crown process

 Placing a dental crown requires two appointments. During the first visit, the dentist will evaluate the tooth to make sure that it can support a crown. In some cases, the tooth may require a filling prior to placing the crown. If the tooth can support a crown, it will be filed down to make room for the crown. Impressions are then taken and sent to a laboratory for fabrication of the permanent crown. A temporary dental crown is used to protect the tooth until your second appointment.

The dental lab ceramist will precisely fabricate your crown to the correct size and shape.

Once the permanent crown is ready, you will return for placement. The temporary crown will be removed and the permanent one will be secured into place with a strong dental cement.

There may be an adjustment period following the placement of your crown. As time passes, the crown will look, function, and feel like your natural tooth.

Wish I could give them more the five stars. This is the best practice I’ve ever been to. After I moved out of town I searched for a local dentist, needless to say I drive almost an hour to go see Dr. Aurelia still. On top of have a great staff and being a great dentist, Dr. Aurelia is kind enough to return messages over the weekend and do what ever he can to help even when he is not working.
