For more than 30 years, Dr. Charles Martin, founder of Richmond Smile Center and clinically advanced dentist with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, has been helping patients achieve their healthiest and happiest smiles. Providing a comprehensive menu of dental services, our premier team at Richmond Smile Center can care for patients of all ages and stages of life, in one beautiful and relaxing location.
Dental crowns have evolved over the years and are natural-looking, durable, and versatile solutions for many conditions, such as:
- Enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the smile
- Strengthening a weakened tooth or protecting a cracked tooth
- Restoring teeth that have excessive wear
- Providing support to a tooth with a large filling
- Changing the shape or color of a tooth
- Anchoring a dental bridge
- Covering a dental implant
A crown is a prosthetic tooth that is made from porcelain with a metal base, all porcelain, or ceramic materials. It serves as a "cap" that completely covers the visible portion of a tooth and it is cemented into place, restoring a patient's ability to speak and eat comfortably.
For patients considering any dental restoration, such as crowns, implants, bridges, porcelain veneers, or dentures, Dr. Martin offers a complimentary, thorough consultation which includes an introduction to our professional team, complete smile evaluation, before and after imaging, review of options, and a custom-tailored treatment plan.
Recognized as a Master in the Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Martin is also a respected author, mentor, and educator, and a Fellow in the International Academy of Dentofacial Esthetics, which recognizes excellence in cosmetic dentistry.
The team at Richmond Smile Center is committed to providing the latest technologies and treatments in a pain-free, friendly, and welcoming environment. Our services include cosmetic, reconstructive, family, emergency, mature adult, and sedation dentistry, as well as oral health screening and progressive treatment for sleep apnea, TMJ, migraines, headaches, and gum disease.
Appointments may be conveniently requested online or by calling us at 804.417.7203. Richmond Smile Center is located at 11201 Huguenot Road in Richmond, VA.
