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.
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.
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.
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.
Five star review from Google+ This is a brand new, clean facility, with easy parking. I am 47 years old, but I still carry a childhood fear of dentists. I have to say, Dr. Aurelia's personality and state-of-the-art equipment make it a pleasant experience. The digital imaging and record system is neat (I asked for a demo).
Visiting in Rochester Hills and had an aching tooth. A crown that had been recently replaced in FL was apparently not adjusted quite right and was giving the tooth above a great deal of pain. Since Dr. Aurelia is my daughter's dentist, I called at 8A to be given a 9A appointment. Dr. Aurelia diagnosed the issue quickly and knowledgeably as one that just needed a little grinding down of the new crown. What a guy! What a dentist! Very pleased indeed! If I move back to MI, I would use his practice for sure. Everyone was so accommodating and professional.

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.
