Dental Crowns

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

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.

A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or non-metal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.

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.
