Natural-looking, comfortable dental bridges
Dental bridges are often a good solution for the replacement of one or more missing teeth. Award-winning Cosmetic Dentists of our clinic specializes in Smile Transformation, and use many dental techniques, including bridges, to help people get the smiles that they want, hand in hand with improved functionality.
Is a Bridge the right solution?
A bridge can be used to fill in a gap in your gumline left by a tooth that is missing. Using the adjoining teeth as support, a properly-made bridge will match your remaining natural teeth and enable you to eat, smile and speak comfortably. A bridge can usually be completed rapidly.
When you come in for a dental restoration consultation, the Dentist will fully examine your teeth, jaw and bone structure. He’ll ask you exact questions to find out what you need and expect from your new teeth, and he will work with you to find the solution that will work for you.
In the case of missing teeth, sometimes a dental implant is the solution that patients prefer, because the implant protects your underlying bone from resorption, and doesn’t require any alteration or cutting of your remaining teeth. However, not everyone is a candidate for dental implant surgery. The Dentist can tell you if you are a good candidate for dental implants, and can fully explain your options.
If you and the dentist decide that a bridge is right for you, he can use a bridge to complete your Smile Transformation.
INLAYS & ONLAYS
Inlay and Onlays
When a large tooth filling is needed to sit on a cavity prepared tooth, an inlay/ onlay is the solution.
As it is stronger than composite restorations, and it is made extraorally at the dental laboratory, with the ability to shape the contact and occlusion anatomy just as a natural tooth.
Much like a veneer or crown, an inlay first requires a digital scan of the affected tooth to be taken. This scan is then sent to a lab for the design. This inlay is then affixed to the area and cemented in place. This technology makes it possible to provide patients with long-term solutions to larger cavities that are both painless and beautiful in just hours.
The confident clinic uses all porcelain inlays and onlays, because porcelain does not wear down over time, has no negative side effects like metals do, and has the extra benefit of being aesthetically pleasing.

Porcelain and Cercon Crowns – Cosmetic Dentistry Specialists Confident clinic
If you’re self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, take heart. We can bring back your healthy, natural looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structural strength and functionality to a tooth that has extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function just like a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment.
Although We use precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, to maintain a fully-white smile, we can recommend cercon and all-ceramic crowns. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain and cercon crowns are also extremely durable and long-lasting, and these benefits make them a popular solution with dentists as well as patients.
Our state of the art dental technology allows us to custom design and create everything in the house, which means we can usually design, fit, and place your crowns in a single appointment. Once a crown is placed, you can ensure continuing oral care just like you do your other natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth.
Call us at +971 (04) 343 3315 for consultation. The confident clinic provides “Dental Solutions for Extraordinary Needs.”
As Cosmetic dentists, we understand that you want your smile to look as healthy as it feels. That’s one reason that when we repair your cavities, we use only tooth-colored, durable materials to fill your teeth.
Current technology has provided dentists with many choices that can be perfectly color-matched to your own teeth. Our tooth-colored fillings are beautiful, durable, and safe.
A root canal treatment, which is also referred to as endodontic treatment, is a common dental procedure that is used by dentists to remove diseased or dead nerve tissue from inside a tooth.
After diagnosing the inflamed or necrotic pulp tooth clinically, by a cold test and x-ray, the dentist will place a rubber dam to protect the tooth from bacterial entrance into the tooth, and from irrigation solutions to enter into the patient throat, then the dentist will make access into the tooth, and then remove the pulp/nerve. The root canal is then thoroughly cleansed and re-shaped by Rotary and Manual instruments. Following this, the root canal and pulp cavity will be filled and sealed. The last step is the placement of a crown over the tooth to give it extra strength and to match the rest of the teeth. This whole procedure is painless, and it takes anywhere from one to multiple visits depending on how severe the infection is.
Gum disease is a highly prevalent dental problem today. Gum disease can occur in two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is a milder, more easily handled disease, and it only affects the gums. Periodontitis is more severe and can lead to major complications in the mouth. Both of these diseases occur below the gum line in a shallow, V-shaped crevice called the sulcus. As the sulcus becomes more affected, the crevice grows, and the gums and bone recede from the tooth and eventually, it becomes loose.
Certain things a patient can do to prevent – or at least decrease the likelihood of – gum disease. Patients should be in the habit of brushing well two to three times daily and flossing once per day. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush will also help. Having a healthy diet also aids in the health of one’s gums: whole grains, vegetables, meats, and dairy products are all beneficial. Snacks eaten between meals can increase the likelihood of gum disease and cavities. Also, regularly visiting your dentist and getting a full checkup and professional cleaning will help the teeth and gums to stay healthier.
Gum pocket charting is a way that dentists keep track of the health of gums and determine whether the patient is suffering from gum disease. Dentists can use advanced computerized technologies to measure the height of your gums, and then chart them on a graph. Using the results, a dentist will be able to determine how healthy the patient’s gums are and recommend how to handle any problems.
