Dental crown is a hollow cap designed to cover a damaged tooth to restore its shape, function, and appearance. Crowns can either be made of ceramic, stainless steel, zirconia, acrylic, gold or other metal alloys, making them a strong protection for your teeth. These tooth caps are cemented on existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by your prosthodontist. We provide you a comprehensive check-up and outstanding services for dental crowns at Micris Dental Clinic that fits your specific needs and dental condition.
It is recommended that you consult one of our specialist prosthodontists if you plan to have dental crowns. A prosthodontist specializes in restoration and replacement of your natural teeth with artificial substitutes such as tooth caps and bridges.
Crowns are actually meant to last a lifetime with proper care and good oral hygiene! However, if the underlying tooth becomes decayed or damaged by gum disease, the crown can fall off and will require replacement. Crowns need no special care except maintaining your teeth and gums healthy through proper oral care and regular checkups.
Zirconia crown is a popular type of crown most preferred by patients in and around Dubai because of its strength like a metal and color that resembles natural teeth. Compared to porcelain crowns, zirconia crowns are easily shaped and cemented much faster.
Zirconia crown is made of zirconium, a durable silicate invented for various medical uses not just in dentistry, but also as prosthesis in hip, finger, or ear surgeries.
Depending on your dental condition and the type of crown to be used, your prosthodontist will provide you the exact cost on the day of your consultation.
Regular brushing and flossing at least twice a day is needed to make your crowns last up to 10 years or longer. Remember not to bite down hard objects or use your crowns to open or cut food packs. Also make sure to have a regular visit for professional cleaning and to check the condition of your crowns.
Dental Bridges are used to literally bridge the gap in between teeth. A bridge is commonly made up of two crowns with false tooth/teeth placed in between. Bridges, also called as fixed removable dentures or fixed dental prosthesis, are attached to your natural teeth or implants for support.
Its anchoring teeth are called abutment and the false teeth are called pontics which can be made from alloy, porcelain, gold, or a combination of strong materials. Dental bridges not only restore your normal oral functions and your smile, they also prevent your other teeth becoming misaligned. We offer you a comprehensive check-up and outstanding services for dental bridges custom-made to your specific needs and dental condition.
On average, bridges can last from five to seven years. The success of a dental bridge always depends on the foundation where it is attached to. With proper oral care and hygiene, bridges can last for more than 10 years.
