Porcelain Crowns Overview
Porcelain crowns can restore a single damaged tooth back to its original form and function. A dental crown is an exact porcelain replica of the natural tooth it is covering, where it preserves and protects the remaining shell of the tooth. The crown covers the entire visible surface of the tooth, leaving it strong and durable. These restorations, available in our office in Washington, DC, are cemented onto the teeth, and are referred to as "fixed" dentistry rather than using a removable appliance or partial denture. The Washington Center for Dentistry has a team of highly trained and artistic cosmetic dentists, who are thrilled to give patients the smile they have always dreamed about with their cosmetic dentistry skills for porcelain crowns.
Porcelain Crowns Reviews
"Dr. Fordjour is a good as it gets. The staff at the Washington Center for Dentistry was incredibly helpful and attentive. The cosmic dentistry was flawless and is virtually invisible to the general public. Dr. Fordjour fully understood that "real" teeth are a much better option than "perfect" teeth. I've had two dentists in my life and now that I've gone to Dr. Fordjour there won't be a third."- E.D. / Yelp / Mar 23, 2016
"Dr. Deutsch's services cost a lot, but so does a BMW. His work is impeccable, and he stands by it. And he's honest. Over the past 11 years, there have been a couple of occasions in which some very complex treatments didn't turn out as hoped, and he re-did them. I wish I got the same value for money everywhere."- N.M. / Yelp / Aug 04, 2014
"Dr. Fordjourd is the best dentist I have been to in this area! Thank you so much for making my procedure as pain free and as relaxing as a dental visit can be. Theresa and Libby are also outstanding. Overall, great customer service and a wonderful team."- F.S. / Yelp / Jan 31, 2017
"Dr. Daniel Deutsch is one of the best (if not the best) dentist in the Washington, DC area.HIs work is excellent!"- D.V. / Demandforce / Jun 09, 2015
"I started going to here 18 months ago b/c it was in my insurance network, and I saw the great reviews on Yelp. I had been going to my previous dentist for many years, and wasn't happy so wanted to make a change and so glad I did. The office is really busy, but it is very clean and VERY organized. I have gone there for three scheduled visits and for one emergency visit (broken crown done by previous dentist). Every time the employees are professional, courteous, and efficient. The equipment is state of the art. Dr. Deutsch is personable and knowledgeable. His oral exams and review of X-rays & records are appropriate and thorough. I would recommend him to anyone."- L.K. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2017

Reasons to Get Crowns
Age, grinding teeth, a misaligned bite, large fillings and tooth decay all cause teeth to wear, crack, or break, and result in the need for a crown. In other cases, crowns replace missing teeth or portions of the tooth. We also offer crowns that are anchored to the teeth on either side, with a "bridge" section spanning the space and connecting the 2 crowns.
How Crowns are Placed
- At the first appointment, one of our cosmetic dentists reshapes the tooth structure and repairs any defects to prepare it to receive the new crown.
- The dentist makes an impression of the tooth that needs a crown.
- The impression is sent to our in-house dental lab where the crown is made.
- Patients usually leave the office with a specially fashioned crown that already looks a lot like the crown. This gives the dentist and patient a wonderful chance to talk about plans for the color and shape of the crown.
- When the crown is ready, it is cemented to the tooth with special, long-lasting cement.
New Generation of Crowns
While tooth crowns have been around for many decades, a new generation of fine-grade porcelain gives today’s porcelain crowns the astonishing look of real teeth. Mimicking nature’s pearlescent glow and translucency, these crowns are difficult to distinguish next to their natural-born neighbors. Also, newer, stronger materials eliminate the need for metal under layers that cast an unsightly dark shadow under the gum line. The newer techniques in fashioning crowns also allow crowns to fit seamlessly into the bite.
