Crowns and Bridges:

Crowns:

We may recommend a crown when a tooth is fractured, has a large old filling, or is severely damaged by decay. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure. There are porcelain crowns and all-metal crowns.

Dr. Owais will remove decay, prepare and shape the tooth, make an impression, then fabricate a temporary crown to cover the tooth. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory where they will make the permanent crown.

Dr. Owais will match the crown color to the color of your teeth. If you are considering whitening your teeth, you should do it before the crown is made. Bleaching products do not change the color of crowns and we would prefer to match the crown color to the color of your teeth after they are whitened.

Bridges:

A Permanent Bridge replaces missing teeth. Its purpose is to keep teeth from drifting into the space created from a missing tooth and to help preserve normal function and normal bite for the jaw joint.

A Permanent Bridge is cemented to the teeth in front of and behind the space of the missing tooth. The natural teeth provide a stong support for the bridge.
