Dental crowns and bridges are used in modern dentistry to adjust, resize or improve the appearance of a tooth. The dentist in Dubai will cement them on the teeth or at the base of a removed tooth, which can be pulled off, if the patient wishes so, only in a dental cabinet. If your case requires it or if you have suffered from tooth loss and you seek for dental improvement, you can receive dental implants in Dubai.
A dental crown is needed when the tooth is badly injured, chipped or has other irregularities. When applying it, the doctor will cover the entire visible part of the tooth. You can book an appointment at our dental clinic in Dubai for applying a dental crown in the following situations:
• to replace a filling of large proportions;
• for when the tooth is at risk of fracturing;
• to restore a fractured tooth;
• to hold a dental bridge;
• to cover a dental implant;
• to cover a tooth with an irregular shape;
• to cover a tooth on which the dentist has done a root canal operation;
• esthetic reasons.
At our dental clinic in Dubai, the dentists can perform such procedures on children as well, but for these special situations, it is required that the operation is performed by a pediatric dentist. You can choose from a large variety of dental crowns, made out of stainless steel, various metals (gold, nickel, chromium), porcelain fused to metal, resin, ceramic, porcelain or zirconium.
A dental bridge is generally used when the dentist has to remove a natural tooth. The empty space between the teeth is covered by bridges. This procedure is necessary as the empty space may lead to a bad bite, gum disease, and other disorders. The Dubai dentist can explain you the benefits of adding a crown after the removal of a tooth. He will insert an abutment, which will act as an anchor for the bridge. After the bridge is added, the doctor will put the replacement tooth, also called a pontic. There are various materials you can choose from and you can discuss this with our dentists, but most commonly used are the bridges made of porcelain or ceramic, which can mimic the color of the natural tooth. Under certain circumstances, bridges and dental crowns can last a time, but their general lifespan is from 10 to 15 years.
