“Dr. Marlin was referred to me and I will be forever grateful. I had an extremely challenging case, one that required the ultimate professional. His expertise is second to none. His technique with existing implants, old crowns and bone issues were carefully addressed. My case was extensive and required a team. Two other doctors were involved, and Dr. Marlin organized the procedures to perfection. The entire staff is exceptional. There is no finer in the Washington Metro area.”

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may avoid smiling. Even a single missing tooth can impact your self-confidence.
But it’s more than that. One or more missing teeth can cause serious health consequences for you, including:
- Problems with your jaw alignment and issues with your bite
- Loss of bone density in your jaw
- Joint and muscle pain in your jaw as your teeth shift into gaps
- Stress on your other teeth resulting in breakdown or additional tooth loss
The good news is that Dr. Marlin can help. If you are missing teeth and would like to discuss your dental implant options, please call our experienced prosthodontist Dr. Gerald Marlin today at 202-244-2101 to schedule an appointment. We welcome patients from Washington D.C., Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Potomac, Rockville, Alexandria, Arlington, and other nearby areas, as well as from other areas of the country and abroad.

Because of our well-situated uptown location and our high-efficiency treatment regimen resulting from working directly with our own in-house technician, many downtown-area patients come to us at the beginning or end of their busy workday in addition to the many patients who come to us from all around the world.
“Dr. Marlin is truly a virtuoso of his profession. I went to him requesting correction of dental work done elsewhere. In a one-day marathon, he replaced five old/faulty crowns and a bridge with six meticulously crafted temporaries. With the permanent crowns now installed, my bite is correctly aligned and the new crowns, made in his in-house lab, beautifully match the neighboring teeth. The restoration process took place over 8 months, was pain-free, and included seamlessly coordinated referrals to a periodontist and endodontist. Dr. Marlin’s good humor and the kind attention of his staff were much appreciated. Experiencing this level of expertise, perfectionism and artistry gave me reason to smile, indeed.”

At Elite Prosthetic Dentistry, we take profound satisfaction in having made a difference to thousands of patients for over 35 years. Our goal: make it radiant, make it natural.
In this digital era where stamped-out, milled crowns and veneers are routinely developed from virtual libraries in software programs, we take pride in handcrafting all of our crowns and veneers in our in-house dental laboratory. We craft your restoration using a custom anatomic form to match your natural tooth shape or blend with your facial pattern. Additionally, we provide custom, internal shading (rather than just surface staining) to blend with your coloring, followed by an overlay of specific translucent enamel porcelains to replicate the 3-Dimensional feel of a natural tooth.
