Restoring Teeth at The Yuma Dentist

dentistry-gorgeous-smilesAt The Yuma Dentist in Yuma, we use a variety of techniques to restore damaged teeth. Most Somerton dental patients are familiar with fillings. Traditional fillings are also called ‘direct restorations’ because they are applied to the tooth and then shaped and polished in one visit.

Another type of filling is called an ‘indirect restoration’ and is fabricated in a dental lab. There are two types: inlays and onlays.

When a tooth needs more extensive dental restoration, a dental crown is often used. At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma, we create strong, natural-looking crowns from a variety of materials.

What if the tooth is damaged beyond repair? There are a number of functional replacements for missing teeth. Dentures are not the only option.

Call 928-318-6346 to learn about the restoration options available. We have been improving smiles for San Luis, AZ, and Winterhaven, CA, patients since 2012.

Whether the damage is caused by decay, injury, bite problems, or natural wear; Frank Hulme DDS will choose the best dental treatment plan for your tooth restoration needs. We provide quality dental care for Yuma area families.

Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants And Dental Bridges

Yuma Dental Implants and Dental Bridges When my Yuma patients ask me about Yuma tooth restoration, I usually tell them about fixed (or ‘traditional’) dental bridges or tooth implants. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth which replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth (called a ‘pontic’) is fused to porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth.

Tooth replacement has been a highly requested procedure at my Yuma dental practice. Patients from the Winter Haven, CA area and Somerton area have expressed concern about tooth replacement for many years. Most of my questions in the Yuma area have to do with the strength of the tooth replacement and durability.

Dental implants are also popular in Yuma. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

After it has bonded with the bone (it usually takes three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields terrific results for Yuma tooth restoration patients.

Both AZ smile restoration options preserve or restore facial contour and allow you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite problems, also.

Tooth implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many Yuma area dental patients have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration alternatives.

Call The Yuma Dentist and ask for Franklin Hulme to schedule an evaluation for AZ tooth restoration. You can schedule your tooth restoration by calling us at 9287830804.
