Need to Fix a Broken Tooth? Our Yuma AZ Dental Specialists Offer the Best Solutions for Broken Teeth
A cracked or broken tooth can cause serious pain. A cracked tooth most likely hurts when you bite down. As soon as you release, the pain goes away. This pain is caused by the pulp inside your tooth becoming irritated when the crack is opened. On the other hand, a broken tooth is easily identified and the pain is more severe.
Depending on a variety of factors, including size and location of the crack or severity of the break, treatment varies from a simple bonding to a more complicated root canal. In the event of a broken tooth beyond repair, you may need a tooth removal.
If you need to fix a broken tooth, our Yuma AZ dental specialists will review with you the best options available to you, based on your unique situation.

Teeth Restoration in Yuma AZ's Premier Dentist Office
Yuma Dental offers a complete line of tooth restoration services to fix your cracked or broken tooth, including:
Dental bonding is a restorative procedure in which we apply tooth-colored materials to the surface of your tooth and cure the material using a high intensity curing light. Bonding is used to fix a broken or cracked tooth and will improve its appearance. Tooth bonding is also used to minimize gaps between teeth and attach a filling.
With bonding, your broken, stained or chipped tooth will be fixed, improving the appearance of your smile, while preventing further dental complications. The benefit of bonding is how quickly it's performed. Often, in a single visit, your tooth can be restored using bonding.
Dental crowns are often referred to as caps. If you need to fix a broken tooth, our Yuma AZ dental specialists may recommend a dental crown. Dental crowns can also be used to strengthen a tooth that is poorly shaped, improve a tooth's appearance, support a tooth with a large filling, aid in attaching a dental bridge, cover a dental implant or protect a weak tooth from cracking or breaking.
Should your broken tooth be too severe to repair, a tooth removal may be the best option for you. To improve your smile after a tooth removal, you may opt for a dental bridge.
Dental bridges are used to replace teeth that are missing in your mouth. Missing teeth can not only detract from your appearance, but can also cause significant dental issues, such as a change in your bite, shifting of teeth or TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder). These can cause discomfort and headaches, as well as lead to speech impediments.
Dental bridges come in a variety of forms. They can either be removable or fixed. Fixed dental bridges are permanent solutions that can only be removed professionally by a dentist. There are several types of fixed dental bridges, including conventional, resin-bonded and cantilever. Each type has its benefits and best uses. If you require a dental bridge, our expert, caring staff will review your options with you.
