Dental Bridge

Dr. Joe Gerard may recommend a dental bridge if you are missing one or more teeth in a row. Our dental bridges are custom made in our on-site laboratory to fit your smile and provide long-lasting stability. Call (602) 788-4040 today if you would like to see our dentist at Arizona Dental for a dental bridge in Phoenix and Sun City, Arizona.

Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
  • Alleviating excess stress on the bite.
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile.
  • Improving the shape and volume of your face.
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture.
  • Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal.
  • Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position.

Where We Can Help

We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.

How Bridges Are Effective

If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete the dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.

Inlays & Onlays


Dr. Joe Gerard offers a number of restorative options at our practice, including dental inlays and onlays. These can be a great option for a long-lasting, natural-looking restoration. We invite you to contact Arizona Dental at (602) 788-4040 today to learn more about dental inlays and onlays in Phoenix and Sun City, Arizona, and to set up your next visit with our dentist.

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used to repair damage or decay. If the damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown but is too serious to be repaired with a filling, our experienced dentist may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are custom created from porcelain, composite resin material, or gold. Our dentist will ensure that your custom inlay or onlay perfectly fits your tooth to restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Once placed, they are virtually undetectable in the mouth and conserve much of your natural tooth structure.

The Benefits of Dental Inlays & Onlays

Both inlays and onlays are used to restore damaged teeth. The difference between a dental inlay and a dental onlay is that an inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth, while a dental onlay is used when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps. We will help you determine whether you need a dental inlay or onlay to restore your smile.




Dr. Joe Gerard can provide you with a dental crown that is aesthetic, custom made, and durable if you have a damaged tooth in need of repair. Our on-site dental lab allows us to create your crown in as little as one visit. We encourage you to give us a call today at (602) 788-4040 to learn more about our dental crowns in Phoenix and Sun City, Arizona, and schedule your next appointment at Arizona Dental.

Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
  • To improve a misshapen tooth.
  • To enhance the beauty of your smile.
  • To anchor and attach a dental bridge.
  • To cover and complete a dental implant.
  • To protect a tooth following root canal treatment.
  • To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weakened.
  • To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains.

Crowns Create Smiles

Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration.

Dental Crowns & Diverse Application

A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentist will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.

Root Canal


Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction.

To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root Canals


We Specialize in Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentist, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.

What Our Dental Fillings Entail

If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!

How Dental Fillings Work

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore the tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings. The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill the tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.
