Dental crowns are placed on top of a tooth that has lost a considerable amount of tooth structure. The crowns protect and restores the natural form and function of the tooth and thereby helps in chewing and other functions. Dental crowns are usually placed on tooth that has undergone root canal treatment as an extra protection. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape, and alignment too. At Versatile Dental Clinic, Al Barsha, our experienced dentists make sure our patients get the best crown and bridge treatment options.
Dental bridges are one of the treatment options for replacing one or more missing teeth. Spaces left by the missing tooth eventually cause the adjacent tooth to move or rotate, resulting in improper occlusion or bite. A bridge is basically crowns on either side of the missing tooth, there by bridging the gap. Our specialised dentists in Versatile Dental Clinic, has the calibre of performing the best crowns and bridges work in Dubai.

Crowns and bridges can be made of metal, ceramic (Zirconium), or porcelain fused to metal. We at Versatile Dental Clinic, Al Barsha provides our patients with high quality dental crowns according to patient’s need. Porcelain or ceramic crowns matches the colour of your natural teeth. Other materials like porcelain fused to metal is often used for the back teeth because of its strength. Before fabricating a crown or bridge the tooth/teeth must be reduced in size in a proper manner by the dentist so that the crown can fit over the tooth perfectly.

Usually, crowns and bridges last for a lifetime, but at certain times they become detached or fall out which can be fixed back in most of the cases. The most important step to improve the longevity of your crowns and bridges is to maintain good oral hygiene. Keep your gums and teeth healthy, so that the foundation of the overlaying crowns remains strong. Also make sure to visit your dentist for follow ups and to keep a check on the maintenance of your crowns and bridges. To get more in-depth information, you can visit our experts in crowns and bridges at Versatile Dental Clinic.
Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthesis unlike dentures. Hence, they need to be maintained the same way as our natural teeth. Brush twice daily with medium to soft bristled toothbrush. Rinse your mouth with a mouth wash to maintain your gum health. Clean the areas between the crowns and gums by using an interdental brush to remove the food debris. Maintenance is the key for long lasting crowns and bridges.
Regardless of the number of teeth missing, you must get them replaced. Failure in replacing a missing tooth can cause serious dental issues. The adjacent tooth and the opposing tooth start moving towards the missing space creating mobility of the existing tooth, and problems in one’s normal bite. A missing tooth for a long period of time can also cause resorption of the jawbone and reduces the density and strength of the bone. At Versatile dental clinic, we are specialised in crowns and bridges treatment.
