What Are Porcelain Crowns?
Individual teeth that have been affected by significant damage or decay can generally be restored using a dental crown. Our dentists use advanced technology to provide same-day crowns to patients in Washington, D.C. Porcelain crowns cover the visible part of teeth, giving them a more natural cosmetic appearance. These kinds of restorations are designed to look like your other teeth and may be placed to fix teeth that are fractured, decayed, oddly shaped, or damaged in some sort of way. Porcelain crowns could also be merged into a unit to form a dental bridge or attached to dental implants to replace a missing tooth. Schedule a consultation at Washington Elite Dentistry to discover if you're a candidate for a same-day crown.
What Is the Porcelain Crown Process?
Getting a porcelain crown at our Washington, D.C. office only takes one visit instead of the usual two. To start, our team will take digital impressions of your mouth with intraoral cameras, and our state-of-the-art machine will then use those images to create your custom crown. Next, one of our highly trained dental practitioners will numb your mouth and can incorporate other sedation dentistry services to boost your comfort if you desire. Once the damaged portion is cleared away, we can place the new dental crown on your tooth and make whatever necessary adjustments to ensure it fits securely and comfortably.
Washington Elite Dentistry Reviews
top-notch dentist and staff. reasonable and transparent pricing. pristine office space. A++
Very happy I stumbled upon Washington Elite Dentistry! The staff was friendly, attentive and even made sure I scheduled a follow up appointment for soon after.
Dr. Berman and her staff are the best! I hadn’t been back to work in DC since Covid in 2020 and they got me right in for a cleaning. I have had painful experiences with dentists in the past but I feel safe and comfortable under Dr. Berman’s care. I appreciate the entire staff, from dental assistants to the front office, they take time to explain procedures & costs to you and work with you to achieve the most favorable outcome. I highly recommend them.
Top notch, one stop shop for all your dental needs. Modern office, close to the Metro, staff clearly dedicated to superior customer service skills.
Dr. Berman and her staff are extremely personable and they worked extra hard to make sure my filling was perfect.

Porcelain Crowns FAQs
How long does it take to get a porcelain crown?
The process typically takes two or more visits to the dentist. The first visit involves preparation and impressions, while a temporary crown may be placed. The second visit involves removing the temporary crown and bonding the permanent crown in place.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure itself is not painful, as the area is usually numbed with a local anesthetic. Some sensitivity or discomfort after receiving porcelain crowns is possible, but it usually subsides quickly.
Can I eat and drink normally with a porcelain crown?
Once the crown is securely in place, you can eat and drink as you normally would. However, it's advisable to avoid very hard or extremely sticky foods that could potentially damage the crown.
