What Is A Porcelain Crown?
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.
Do I Need A Porcelain Crown?
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.
Washington Center for Dentistry Reviews
Always professional & a great doctor who explains things thoroughly with a great support staff
Always have a good experience here. All staff is friendly and professional. I’ve been fearful of the dentist most of my life but they’ve made me rest easy. I would highly recommend this place to all family and friends.
I have a history of challenging dental problems. I have been a patient of Dr. Katsaros for a number of years. He is a highly experienced and very skilled at what he does. I am very appreciative for the care I have received from him and his excellent staff. Highly recommend.
The Washington Center for Dentistry is a very impressive group indeed; It all begins with a beautiful, large, and comfortable open sign-in and waiting area with an eye-popping view of K street from the 8th floor. The doctors and staff are dedicated, focused, and personable, and the goal is clearly the very best dental care. This, for me, came in the skills and very pleasant demeanor of Dr. Elana Shlansky whose insistence on perfection soon revealed itself as a kind of signature. All very agreeable! The whole Washington Center for Dentistry package is extraordinary! Take your mouth there! you won't regret it.
I write this with pleasure. Dr Foujour is a Doctor - a Scientist and an Artist. He and his staff made me feel so so good today. The Washington Center for Dentistry will make you relax and enjoy...

How Does Getting A Porcelain Crown Work?
- 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.
Do Porcelain Crowns Look Like Natural Teeth?
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.
