Restorative dentistry is an aspect of dentistry that is focused on the repair of the natural smile. Dr. John L. Aurelia and his team provide patients in the Rochester Hills, MI area with solutions for their teeth. This includes natural-looking restorations such as dental crowns for covering a tooth and offering it protection against damage.
Crowns, or “caps,” are restorations made of porcelain to ensure a natural appearance. Dr. John L. Aurelia prepares the tooth with the removal of a thin portion of enamel. A dental laboratory custom-creates these restorations and allows patients the opportunity to have a say in how their final dental crown looks. By choosing the same color and shaping the tooth to the same look as the remaining teeth, patients can enjoy seamless integration into their smiles!

Many patients with dental crowns can enjoy their restorations for a decade or longer. This is especially true for patients who take good care of their smiles. Patients are encouraged to book regular dental visits with Dr. John L. Aurelia to check for concerns which may arise between appointments. At these visits, patients can undergo cleanings and examinations, including x-rays, to monitor the smile for periodontal disease and dental decay. Brushing and flossing at home after every meal also helps.
