Tooth Enamel Erosion & Treatment

A college student treated by Dr Gerald Marlin in his Washington DC dental office had severe erosion of his tooth enamel. As the enamel eroded, the dentin layer made his teeth look more yellow. Continuing erosion made the teeth so thin that the edges appear blue.

Porcelain crowns were placed to prevent fracture and decay and to restore his appearance, and give him a brighter smile.

Before & After


“Hats off” Doctor Marlin for the outstanding work done on my 12 crowns and implants 28 years ago.

I moved from the area 25 years ago. Today my current dentist praised your work as he was evaluating my mouth after viewing my panoramic x-ray this morning. All 12 crowns are completely sound and do not need restored or replaced!

Thank you, Dr. Marlin, for your exceptional skill.
