Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are frequently used to strengthen and repair cracked, broken, or badly decayed teeth. Fitting snugly at the gum line, porcelain crowns look and function just like the real teeth, and protect the remaining natural tooth. They also improve facial appearance and prevent shifting and overwork by the surrounding teeth. At Rye Smiles for Life, serving Virginia and the Washington, D.C. area, our restorative dentistry team uses porcelain crowns that reflect light to achieve a healthy glow without dark metal lines.

Creating a porcelain crown is a fairly simple process. First, a mold is made of the patient’s mouth; the crown will then be crafted based on the model, to ensure a good fit. Dr. D. Gordon Rye may have to reshape the damaged tooth to prepare it for the crown. While the custom crown is being made, patients wear a temporary crown. During a second appointment to install the permanent crown, Dr. Rye may shave away part of the tooth to make room before fitting the crown. Once the permanent crown is in place, it can last for many years with daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental checkups. Dr. Rye can often complete a full smile makeover with only the use of our high-quality porcelain crowns.
