Benefits to Treating a Cracked Tooth With The Yuma Dentist

A crack or chip may seem to be very minor. Hardly anything worth worrying about. While it’s true that this type of damage will not usually cause immediate problems, a cracked tooth should be treated sooner rather than later.

Why?

Teeth are covered in a mineralized material called enamel. In fact, the enamel is the hardest material produced by the human body. It needs to be tough in order to protect the inner parts of the tooth from bacteria, foreign particles, and the physical stress of chewing, biting, and speaking. Cracks, chips, and breaks pierce through this protective layer, exposing the dentin and pulp to all of the dangers listed above. Cavities may form in the damaged tooth, and you could experience severe pain, temperature sensitivity, and potentially even further breakage of the tooth as well. Unlike other cells in the body, enamel cannot heal itself. Therefore, it is necessary to fix a broken tooth or chipped teeth in a dental office.

Treatment Options

The treatment you receive depends on what your individual case requires. The Yuma Dentist has a number of excellent options for you to choose from.
Bonding| Bonding is a simple and cost-effective way to fill in chips and cracks. Essentially, it involves:
the application of a tooth-colored resin which is shaped to the specifications of your tooth, effectively sealing off the sensitive inner tissues.

Crowns| If the damage to your tooth is too extensive to save with a filling or bonding, it may be necessary to replace the entire surface with a synthetic crown. These dental crowns are custom crafted and all but indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Veneers| Veneers are an incredible and beautiful way to take care of minor chips, gaps, or slight crookedness without needing a major procedure. On top of all that, it also gives your tooth a new layer of protection between it and the stress of the outside world.
