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.
Robert F. Walker Jr. DDS works with top-quality dental labs to accomplish a crown restoration in as little as two office visits. Together, he and the dental lab will custom-design a crown that meets your individual needs. A crown may be designed of any combination of metals and porcelain materials, depending on the needs of the patient. For the most esthetic results, modern dentistry gives our dentist and lab the ability to design crowns crafted of 100% porcelain. Through careful assessment and discussion, Dr. Walker will help you decide which type of crown will meet your needs the best.
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 by 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.
Dental bridges may be designed of metal and porcelain or 100% porcelain materials. The type of bridge used will depend on the individual needs of the patient.
Bridges are a single crown, or several crowns that are 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 a dental bridge is placed by an experienced dentist like Dr. Walker, they look and function much like the natural teeth.
While dental implants are typically the ideal method of tooth replacement, there are certain situations when a bridge may be a better solution. If you have missing teeth, discuss your tooth replacement options, including dental implants and bridges with Dr. Walker.
