Crowns & Bridges

A beautiful, healthy smile is important. Missing or damaged teeth can make chewing difficult, affect your self-image, and even make you reluctant to talk, laugh, or smile around other people. If your smile isn't all you'd like it to be, we can help with beautiful, natural-looking crowns and bridges.

Full Coverage Crowns

Crowns can be used to restore a variety of cosmetic and structural issues. Cracked or chipped teeth, teeth with large fillings, or teeth that have had root canal therapy can all be strengthened and improved using dental crowns.

Dental crowns are a cap that is made specifically to fit your teeth. They are usually made of porcelain, porcelain over metal, or composite resin. Crowns can be made to look just like your real teeth, restoring a less-than-perfect smile to a natural beauty. The crowns are permanently bonded to your teeth, giving you a low-maintenance restoration for years to come.

Crowns also offer structural support and protection. If you have a tooth that is cracked, this weakens the remaining structure of the tooth, leaving it vulnerable to decay, further cracking and breaking, and infections. Placing a crown over a cracked tooth strengthens the tooth and helps avoid additional damage that may result in the need for root canal or extraction. Crowns are frequently used on teeth that have had root canal therapy for this reason, to protect the tooth and leave you with a beautiful smile.

Restore Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge

If you have lost a tooth through damage, disease, injury, or decay, it leaves a gap in your smile that may make you self-conscious. But did you know it can also cause other dental issues if left untreated? Your other teeth may shift due to the space, creating alignment issues and bone loss.

If the cost of a surgical implant is out of your reach, you may want to consider a dental bridge. Bridges restore the missing tooth by "bridging" the gap. A replacement tooth is created to match your natural teeth, usually with a crown on either side that fits onto the healthy adjacent teeth. The crowns securely anchor the bridge in place, helping to keep your teeth properly aligned and giving you back your smile.

Bridges can be used to restore a gap of one or more teeth and can sometimes even be used in an area that doesn't provide an anchor on both sides, such as at the back of your mouth. Be aware that properly anchoring the bridge will require some removal of healthy tooth structure to accommodate the crowns. Herndon, VA dentist Dr. Ahmad will perform an examination and discuss your treatment options to see if you are a good candidate for a dental bridge.
