Tooth decay is a progressive problem that can ultimately lead to the “death” of a tooth. Primary chewing teeth, such as premolars and molars, are especially vulnerable to decay. With the use of a sealant, we can create a protective barrier that fortifies the enamel of your teeth. A sealant is a plastic resin applied to the chewing surfaces of your permanent teeth. This material bonds into depressions and grooves that are difficult to reach via regular brushing and flossing. The sealant helps to prevent the harmful effects of bacteria, plaque and acids that are primary causes of tooth decay.
Like most things, teeth can get worn down and start to decay. This process creates cavities or holes that can grow over time so its important you get them repaired promptly. At Yuma Dental, our dentists gently remove the decayed portion and fill the cavity with sturdy metal, alloy, plastic or porcelain.
A crown isn’t for aesthetic purposes only. In fact dental crowns can improve the health of your mouth in a variety of ways. For instance, crowns can restore a tooth to its original shape or are used to make a tooth stronger. They can also be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth or fix one that's already broken. Our knowledgeable Yuma AZ teeth restoration staff may recommend a dental crown to remedy any one of these conditions. A crown may be exactly what you need for a smile that's healthy and happy.
If you need to replace only a few missing teeth, dental bridges can be an excellent option. As the leading Yuma, AZ teeth restoration experts, we can make either removable or fixed bridges out of gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination. Dental bridges, just like dentures, can give you a confident smile.
