Crowns & Bridges

A dental bridge is a type of restoration that we use to replace a missing tooth. It fills the empty space, restoring your appearance and the function of the tooth.dental bridge diagram or illustration

Just about anyone with a missing tooth is a good candidate for a dental bridge. Of course, you should keep in mind that everyone has unique needs, and Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram will help you decide if a bridge is the right choice for you.

A dental bridge is one unit that usually consists of three or more parts. The main part of the bridge is the artificial tooth that will fill the space left by the missing tooth. This is referred to as the pontic.

Since we must secure the pontic to your teeth, dental crowns are placed on either side to form one stable restoration. The dental crowns are then attached to neighboring teeth, leaving you with a functional, aesthetic replacement tooth.

Dental Bridges in our Vienna VA Office

At our Vienna dental office, we have created hundreds of bridges that are durable, provide function, and look completely natural. If you have a missing tooth, we can help you with a dental bridge, but we do have other options as well.

Please call our office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation to discuss which tooth replacement solution is most appropriate for your needs.

A dental crown is a restoration that is used to strengthen and protect damaged teeth. The crown is designed to completely encase your natural tooth, which is why it is often referred to as a cap.

At Tysons Dentistry, crowns are an essential part of the restorative treatments we use to return your tooth to its full function. Advances in dental materials now allow us to create crowns that not only protect your oral health, but actually enhance the appearance of your smile.dental crowns | vienna va dentist
