Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns by Chandler, AZ dentist, Dr. Walker may be used to repair a tooth that has extensive decay or is cracked and at risk for breaking. A dental crown can also be used as a replacement tooth when attached to a dental implant or bridge. Whatever your need may be for this type of restoration, you can trust that Dr. Walker’s dental crowns are designed to provide long-term strength, function, and beauty to a tooth that needs it.
When it is decided that a dental crown is needed, treatment begins with an assessment of the tooth that needs to be covered. Dr. Walker will take an impression of the tooth and fit it with a temporary restoration while your crown is being created at the dental lab. Once your dental crown is finished being designed, Dr. Walker will carefully fit and cement it to the tooth so that it fits comfortably and is durable.
A bridge is used to replace missing teeth. Our dentist makes beautiful, natural-looking bridges that restore the strength and function of your smile. A dental bridge gives you back the ability to chew, speak, and smile as if you never had a missing tooth to begin with.
Bridges are a single crown or several crowns attached together in order to fill the space left behind by a missing tooth or teeth. They are suspended across the space and bonded to the adjacent natural teeth. When an experienced dentist like Dr. Walker places a dental bridge, it looks and functions much like natural teeth.
I enjoy all my interactions with Dr. Walker, Tara, and the staff. They are incredibly helpful and fun. The fact I have perfectly clean teeth at the end almost seems like a bonus instead of the reason I go! I like how I am informed of what they are doing and what my options are. I highly recommend Dr. Walker.
