Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond simple repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “bonded to high noble gold alloy” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems. These treatments may last for a lifetime, which is as close to “permanent” as dental treatment can get.
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay if present, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to noble gold alloy. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can provide better support and prevent breakage of the tooth.
Dr. Gordon has taken care of me since the early 80s and I can't recommend him more highly. I am not the easiest patient he has (even if I am one of his longest-term ones) because I hate dentistry, but he has always been caring and compassionate.

I am so grateful to Dr. Gordon and his staff. I was suffering from an acute toothache on a Sunday so I left a message on Dr. Gordon’s website. Dr. Gordon immediately called me and told me to come in the next morning. He gave me his undivided attention to determine the source of my pain. I ultimately had to have a root canal (Dot, his receptionist arranged for an appointment with an endodontist that same day). I receive a telephone call that evening from Dr. Gordon to see how I was feeling.
I am now going through the process of getting a dental crown with Dr. Gordon. He and his team are making me comfortable and confident every step of way. I feel that they really care about and want the best for each of their patients.
I recommend Dr. Gordon and his staff to anyone who wants a top-notch professional who is passionate about providing exceptional service and care. I would not go anywhere else to get dental services. Thank you to Dr. Gordon and his exceptional staff!

Dr. Gordon came into the office on his day off to reseat a temporary crown that had popped off. He met me in less than an hour. The consistent quality of service received from this office makes us loyal patients.

5 Stars for everyone in the office!
I have been a patient for about 25 years. Everyone is wonderful and cheerful which puts you at ease!
Dr. Gordon makes sure that you are comfortable at all times during the procedure. I used to hate getting a crown, but I can honestly say that I never felt any pain, not even the shots of Novocain!
