What Are Dental RESTORATIONS?
Individual teeth that have suffered moderate damage or tooth decay can generally be fixed using a dental crown or dental bridge. Our modern dental office offers crown and bridge restorations to Washington, D.C. individuals to restore normal dental function and provide an improved cosmetic appearance. Crowns and bridges are both designed to blend beautifully with your natural teeth and can be placed to address teeth that are broken, decayed, misshapen, or damaged. Individual crowns might also be fused into an appliance to function as a bridge or connected to single dental implants to replace a missing tooth. Book a consultation with our dental experts at Chang & Rothkopf Dental to find out if a custom-made crown might enhance the appearance and health of your smile.
Dental Crowns and Bridges Reviews
"Dr Chang and staff are AWESOME! Dr Chang put a temporary crown in without causing pain nor discomfort. She is very gentle, professional and explain every step of the process."- B.J. / Google / Jan 07, 2022
"Dr Rothkopf is amazing and completely trustworthy. I moved here 15 years ago and another dentist said I needed 4 crowns. Went for a second opinion with Dr Rothkopf and he said it wasn’t needed - just a bit of clean up of very old fillings. Huge savings but also .... who wants crowns! His staff is super personable and responsive. I feel incredibly fortunate to have found this office."- T.C. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2022

Dental Crowns And Bridges FAQ
How many teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge?
In general, a dental bridge replaces up to four teeth in a row. Trying to replace more than four teeth with a dental bridge can make the bridge unstable in the mouth, so it is typically advised against. In these situations, a partial or full denture may be recommended as the best option to restore your smile.
Does getting a dental crown or bridge hurt?
No, most people don't find the procedure painful or uncomfortable. During the preparation process, your tooth or teeth will be shaped to accept the crown or the crowns that will hold the bridge. We will use a local anesthetic to completely numb the treatment area — so you should not feel any pain or anything at all. During your consultation, feel free to talk to us about your concerns and the options we provide to further enhance your comfort.
How long does a dental crown or bridge last?
Most patients can expect a dental bridge to last up to 15 years before it may need to be adjusted or replaced. This is due to the natural movement of the teeth in the mouth over time and the usual wear and tear on the restoration. A dental crown can last 15 years or longer in some cases before it may need replacing. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups at Chang & Rothkopf Dental, you can dramatically extend the life of your dental crown or bridge.
Will my teeth look fake with a dental crown or bridge?
No, they won't. We will choose a tooth shade, shape, and size that is almost identical to your natural teeth so that they blend in seamlessly with your smile.
