Dentist in Dubai explained that if you have had well fitted dental crowns you don’t have to have them replaced. The same goes to gold dental crowns that are implanted in your teeth, you won’t need to replace them, unless for preventive measures.
Dental crowns should be fitted by your Dental Clinic in Dubai in a way that there are no open spaces or margins. There should not be any signs of dental decay on the borders. Even when the crowns do not have to be prophylactically or periodically replaced, you still have to visit your dentist regularly as they will check for the condition of the crown and if there are any threats to your overall good health.
Some of the materials that are commonly used for Dental Crowns include:
Gold – This is a non-corrosive material and does not cause any problems then you put on the teeth. However, the dental cement that is used to bond the gold to the teeth dissolves due to saliva over time. Therefore, due to the deterioration of the dental cement, fluids that a person consumes start seeping inside the tiny gaps of the teeth, causing dental decay over a period of time.
Porcelain – If the crown is made of porcelain, but fused into metal, the patient can experience chipping. This is not a legitimate cause to have your crowns replaced. Patient’s should visit their dentist and request them to smooth out the edges of the chipped tooth. If the changes are not very noticeable and does not cause discomfort when speaking or eating, then the patient will need to have their dentures replaced. Older citizens become anxious when their dentures chip or crack, this is because they think that the tooth should be replaced as a whole for appropriate functioning.
Porcelain crowns are usually very expensive, therefore talk to you dentist and explore the possibilities of performing reconstructive dentistry. A patient should understand that dentists are keen to replace restorations often as it leads to financial benefits for them as well. However, a caring and concerned dentist will do this because they truly do care about your dental health. Most dentists will suggest the replacement of a dental crown as opposed to a denture as the denture can be very uncomfortable and cause inconvenience in the long run. Dentists will try to save the crown as much as possible by polishing, filing and other processes of reconstructive dentistry and patients have no requirement to worry about the exorbitant crown replacement costs.
Before having your crowns replaced make sure to have a chat with your dentists and also have a second opinion if you are not sure, about problems like dental decay and procedures like gum contouring around the crown. While one dentist might suggest that you completely replace the dental crown, another may provide options for restorative solutions that not only preserves the old crown, but gives you comfort from pain as well as an affordable solution. Good oral hygiene can make your dental crowns last monger as well.
