Dental Crowns & Bridges

Man with dental crowns and bridges from a Reston VA dentistDr. Han is proud to provide CEREC same-day crowns!

Patients with broken or damaged teeth may not be satisfied with the function or appearance of their smile. Dr. John Han and his team create beautiful restorations, including dental crowns, that recreate the aesthetic and comfort of your natural smile.

There are many different methods of fabricating a dental crown, and one of the most modern and esthetic methods is the CEREC system. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field. With this technology, Dr. Han can design, fabricate and place porcelain crowns in just one visit! The need for uncomfortable temporaries or messy impressions has been eliminated.

Porcelain Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that restores a damaged tooth to its normal form and function. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings. Dr. Han’s crowns are made to match the size, shape and color or your teeth for a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Broken or failed fillings
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Restoring a tooth after root canal treatment

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge can “bridge” the gap between two teeth after a tooth has been lost. Dental bridges replace missing teeth with a porcelain restoration that is cemented between the two teeth adjacent to the gap. Each bridge requires at least three porcelain crowns. A dental bridge is an excellent option for patients who are missing teeth.

CEREC Technology

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CEramic REConstruction. The system includes a digital camera, CEREC design software, and a milling machine. CEREC makes it possible to design and bond your permanent dental crown in a single visit.

At Expressions Dental Care, we have streamlined the smile reparation process with CEREC technology. The process requires no messy impressions or bothersome temporary crowns. You won’t have to wait around for weeks to see the final product. Instead, you’ll leave with your gorgeous new smile after just one visit to our office.
