Why Trust Elite Prosthetic Dentistry with Your Temporary & Permanent Restorations

At Elite, Dr. Gerald Marlin is Washington D.C.’s most respected and trusted Prosthodontist and dental restoration specialist.

Elite Delivers, Best-Looking, Highest-Quality, Restorations in Less Time with Our In-House Lab

Typically, we can fabricate temporary custom dental restorations for you within one to two days, looking natural and seamlessly matching your appearance. Most other offices are hampered by needing to coordinate with remote, off-site commercial dental labs, as an alternative, many offices will print your crowns on a CAD/CAM machine, using stock images. This step alone can take several days or even weeks to complete, and there is no guarantee that the restorations created by a third-party will actually fit your smile. With teeth, millimeters can make a difference and, in some cases, off-site restorations such as these have to be restored, retooled, and retried several times before a comfortable and attractive fit is found.

After Your Temporary Restorations, Elite Delivers High-Quality Permanent Restorations That Can Last a Lifetime

After we place your temporary dental restoration, we have our lab work on your permanent one. In the meantime, you can do all your normal things with the temporary restorations, including smile, eat, chew, and speak without worry.

When your permanent restorations are ready, we will contact you to come in for placement. Once your permanent restorations are placed, your smile will be fully restored. As a result of our on-site lab and thorough process, multiple adjustments and appointments are not needed—we will ensure your restorations fit perfectly before you leave our office.

Get Your Smile Quickly Back to Looking Its Best, We Are Here to Help 

While we are not a 24/7 facility, we make every effort to see existing patients on the same day. If this is a medical emergency and our office is closed, please call 911 right away.

Since emergency visits can delay regularly scheduled appointments, your understanding is appreciated as we make every effort to accommodate each regularly scheduled patient on a timely basis.
