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. Our team is at your disposal with complete information about the dental services we can provide in our dental offices.
What are the dental crowns?
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 or for the case in which the tooth is at risk of fracturing;
- to restore a fractured tooth orto hold a dental bridge;
- to cover a dental implant orto treat a tooth with an irregular shape;
- to cover a tooth on which the dentist has done a root canal operation;
- for esthetic reasons for patients who want to improve their smile.
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. Here is an infographic that presents the benefits of dental crowns:
Benefits of ceramic crowns
The ceramic crowns are made from a thin material and are perfectly matched to patients who have minimal space within their mouth for a crown or desire something which has a normal and natural look. Moreover, the material used is “bio-compatible” which is suitable for natural gum soft tissue and allows it to raise back alongside the crown. The dentist in Dubai will explain to his patients that there is no risk of an allergic reaction or sensibility to hot or cold foods.
The procedure for placing ceramic crowns
The technique is the same as for any fitting of a crown and starts with the cleaning and reshaping the tooth to be treated as a form of preparation. In the next stage, the tooth is tapered so that it will let the crown fit tightly over the top. An imprint is then taken of the patient’s teeth with dental putty. The mold resulted is then sent to a dental lab where it will be used to create the new crown. Meanwhile, the patient will be fitted with a temporary crown because the permanent one will take about two or three weeks to be ready. The last step involves fitting the new crown, where the dentist in Dubai will rough the surface of the affected tooth and then will allow the crown to stick to it. If you and the dentist are pleased with the fitting, then it will be fixed definitely in place with dental non-toxic cement.

If you want to know more details about the dental bridges and crowns you can receive in our modern dental clinics in Dubai, we invite you to watch the video below:
What are the dental bridges?
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 to 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 for a long time, but their general lifespan is from 10 to 15 years.
What are the traditional dental bridges?
Replacing the missing teeth is not a challenge in dentistry anymore, as there are numerous methods to offer for this problem. The traditional dental bridges are usually offered by most dentists because they are strong enough to replace even the missing molars. The traditional dental bridges are artificial teeth that are held in place by a dental crown. These are then cemented on the teeth and can last for 15 or 20 years if the daily habits linked to oral care are respected.
What are Cantilever bridges?
Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional dental bridges with the difference that the bridge is held by an abutment on only one side. Even if there is only one natural tooth available, the bridge can still be placed and held to the denture.
What are the implant-supported bridges?
Restoring the missing teeth can be done with implant-supported bridges that are dental implants that hold the dental bridge. This is a recommended method for patients with several missing teeth. Such dental bridges can last a lifetime and can successfully replace the missing teeth, offering the wanted aspect of natural teeth.
