As patients age, teeth become victim to a variety of alarming problems, such as general weakening, structural damage, significant decay, aesthetic concerns, and even loss. When this happens, what’s most important is that the affected tooth be rebuilt and revitalized as soon as possible. At Lansdowne Family Dental, Dr. Wael Elosta provides quality, tooth-colored crowns and bridges that fit seamlessly into existing smiles, renewing strength. Same-day restorations from our state-of-the-art CEREC machine are also available!
A crown is designed to “cap” over the visible portion of a broken or decayed tooth, restoring its stability and protecting it from further damage. Our Lansdowne, VA team uses crowns as the finishing touches for dental implants and root canal therapy so patients enjoy a complete, beautiful result. The traditional method for receiving a crown takes two appointments. During the first, we prepare the tooth in question, take impressions, and provide you with a temporary crown so your smile isn’t disrupted. Once we’ve received the final crown, we invite you back so Dr. Elosta can securely place your permanent crown and ensure full satisfaction with the look and feel. We hope to exceed your expectations!
Are you missing one or more teeth in a row? For patients who can’t afford dental implants or simply aren’t the right candidates for the procedure, dental bridges offer a similar sturdy, lifelike result. A bridge is designed to seamlessly blend in with natural teeth, and additional crowns fit over nearby healthy teeth, anchoring it in place. The prosthetic is not removable and should be cared for in the same way as the rest of your smile. Like dental crowns, bridges also typically require two appointments to receive. Patients from Ashburn and beyond are welcome to contact us today and schedule an appointment!
