Get a crown or bridge with a dentist you can trust! Schedule your restoration using crowns or bridges at Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S. and Associates today.
Do you need a crown or bridge in Centreville, Virginia? If you’re missing one or more teeth, crowns and a bridge can help you restore the natural look and function of your teeth. Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices. Crowns can be used to cover or cap your damaged tooth entirely. If a tooth is missing, they can be secured to a dental implant placed in the jaw. A bridge is used to fill in a gap if you’re missing one or more teeth in a row. The bridge can be attached to crowns on your natural teeth on either side of the gap or attached to implants.
Before your restoration can be fitted, your tooth or teeth need to be prepared, or dental implants will be surgically placed in the jaw. Your dentist will take an impression to provide an exact mold for your restoration. We will then determine the correct shade to match the color of your existing teeth.
This impression is sent to a dental lab that will make your restoration to the specifics that your dentist provides them. We may fit you with a temporary crown or bridge that will be placed to cover the prepared tooth while the permanent crown or bridge is created. When it's ready, any temporary restorations will be removed, and your new crown or bridge is permanently bonded or attached.
At Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S. and Associates, we use porcelain for our crowns and bridges. Porcelain is one of the most durable materials available, and it can be made to perfectly match the shade of your teeth, and it blends seamlessly with your teeth.
