A tooth that has suffered dental decay, injury, or periodontal disease, or has been lost completely, may benefit from a dental crown or bridge to restore proper support and function. Dr. Michael G. Winkelman and our team offer both dental crowns and bridges in Apache Junction, Arizona, to keep your smile full, strong, and beautiful.
Dental crowns are synthetic tooth caps that are designed to match the size and appearance of your natural teeth. Meridian Dental Care offers porcelain crown material that matches the new dental crown to the shade of your smile so that the results look full natural. Our dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore a tooth damaged by decay, infection, or injury. Dental crowns can also cover misshapen teeth, complete a dental implant, and become part of a dental bridge.
A dental bridge is an appliance comprised of three or more synthetic teeth that is designed to replace one or multiple missing teeth. The synthetic teeth on each end are dental crowns that are fixed to the neighboring teeth to provide support for the dental bridge. Not only to dental bridges improve your smile but they can enhance the facial contours that often suffer from missing teeth, such as sagging cheeks.
If you feel that you would benefit from a dental crown or bridge, call 480-671-1111 today to speak with a member of our team and schedule your appointment. We would love to hear from you!
