It is common for patients to come to John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC of Rochester Hills, MI to ask about restorative solutions for their smiles. When teeth are broken or damaged, they may benefit from the placement of dental crowns.
Dental crowns are used often in dentistry. These porcelain restorations are beneficial for patients who need to protect the natural tooth structure to keep a tooth from becoming damaged or requiring extraction. Dental crowns, also referred to by some patients as caps, are made of ceramic, which is a material that looks just like natural tooth enamel. It can be colored to match the existing teeth for a seamless integration into the smile. Restorations that look like the rest of the teeth within the smile are difficult to distinguish, making them the most desirable in cosmetic dentistry. Aesthetics is important to our dental team, so we make sure all restorations blend in with the appearance of the teeth.
Dental crowns are made by removing a small portion of enamel off the natural tooth structure before impressions are done. These impressions are used to fabricate the crowns by a dental ceramist. Patients who have dental crowns and other restorations placed can take care of them with proper care and attention to improve their longevity.
