When a tooth is lost, dentistry offers various options to replace the missing space:
The ideal mode of tooth replacement is Dental Implant. A titanium-based implant is placed in the bone in the space where the root of tooth was present. After a period of time during which the implant becomes part of the natural jaw bone, an abutment is connected with the implant. Then impression is made and a crown or bridge is fixed on the abutment/s.
A bridge is done when the bone is not suitable for an implant or the cost of implant is too expensive. For making a bridge two or more teeth are grinded that are present adjacent to the missing area. An impression is made and a bridge is manufactured to fit on those abutment teeth and cover the space of missing tooth/teeth.
When there is unavailability of strong teeth to take up the load of a bridge or too many teeth have been lost, then the option of removable appliances is chosen. Acrylic Dentures, Cast Partial dentures or CC-plates & Flexible dentures are the options that may be chosen to fulfill the requirements.

What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium-based structure that replaces the missing root of a tooth. It gets fixed with the bone of jaw (maxilla or mandible), and provides a platform for abutment to be fixed over the implant; thus making a foundation for the dental prosthesis to be attached (crown, bridge, dentures, etc.).
Why Dental Implants?
Following features induce the people to choose dental implant as first priority to replace missing tooth/teeth:
- Dental implants enrich the beauty and smile of the patient.
- Dental implants immensely increase the mastication power/chewing capacity of mouth.
- Dental implants help enhance the appearance of teeth in general.
- Being fixed with the bone, dental implants become part of the body and the person does not feel artificial like when using dentures.
- Since the life of dental implants is long, so they improve the quality and lifetime of jaw bone as well.
- With the help of dental implants, general oral health is greatly improved.

Crown and Bridge
At Sherwani Dental Associates, The Best Dentist in Lahore; we are providing the best services in terms of crown and bridge. Crown and Bridges are among the best solutions to deal with missing teeth or the ones that are severely damaged. They are bonded with natural teeth or the fixed implants, and in such case these teeth or implants are called as abutments.
Most of the patients need Dental Crown and Bridges to enhance their biting/chewing capacity, aesthetics, improve the smile and adjust the alignment/orientation of teeth. Our specialist dentists at Sherwani Dental Associates will sit around with you in-person to discuss your specific case and provide knowledge to help you chose the best treatment modality for yourself.
Dental crowns are the replica of original teeth and cover the whole surface of the teeth, similar to wearing a real crown. In case of a rundown tooth, severely damaged tooth, or a tooth treated by RCT; artificial crown is the best solution in such cases. An artificial crown revives the tooth strength, matches the color of adjacent teeth and improves the overall health of the oral cavity.
Dental crowns are also fixed over dental implants and can also be used to cover natural defects and fulfill the cosmetic requirements of a patient. Sherwani Dental Associates, The Best Dentist in Lahore, offer the following types of dental crowns:
- Metal / Stainless steel
- Metal-fused-Porcelain (PFM)*
- Zirconia crown*
When one or more teeth are missing, then the gap is filled by the Dentist through fixing a dental bridge on the adjacent teeth of both sides. The unit/tooth that mimics the natural tooth in a dental bridge is called as ‘Pontic’, while the adjacent natural teeth used as anchors are called as ‘Abutments’. Dental bridges are made to mix or blend with the natural teeth and enhance the outlook, improve the appearance of face and correct the alignment of teeth.
The following options of Dental Bridges are available at Sherwani Dental Associates:
