Need a Filling?

If you’re suffering from tooth decay or have a chipped or cracked tooth, you’re not alone! Nearly 90% of adults will need a filling at some point in their lives. Left untreated, a cavity or damaged tooth may become severely infected and painful. A filling is a simple restoration designed to eliminate pain, remove decay, and make your tooth as good as new again. With the help of Drs Shah & Karia Do You can get a filling made from natural, tooth-coloured material. Your filling will look and function just like a natural tooth.

We have helped hundreds of patients eliminate decay and save their teeth with dental fillings. Our fillings are:

  • Made from tooth-colored composite resin
  • Durable — they’ll last for years
  • Designed to protect your teeth from further decay


At Smiles-R-Us Family Dental, we want you to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. When you’re dealing with a cavity or another dental issue, we often recommend a white (Composite) Filling. But if you’re suffering from advanced decay or have more filling than tooth structure, it puts your tooth at risk of cracks, breaks, and other issues.

A dental crown is a cap that covers the entire visible portion of the tooth, protecting its remaining structure and restoring its original shape, size, and colour.

Severe tooth decay is the most common reason for a dental crown. A crown is needed whenever there is more filling than tooth structure. In these cases, the tooth is brittle and at high risk to break. A crown fits over top of the tooth and helps protect the tooth when you chew and eat. You may also need a crown as the last step of a root canal or dental implant procedure.

Thanks to advanced technology, dental crown treatments are simpler and more comfortable than ever. However, a numbing gel and local anaesthetic is usually all that’s necessary for most patients to feel comfortable

This depends on your specific needs and tooth. We’ll help you understand the cost of your crown before your treatment. We offer flexible financing and payment options, including CareCredit and our in-house membership program. We also accept most insurance plans and are happy to help you maximize your benefits. Contact us to learn more at 408-943-9443 or (510)7961656.

With proper care, our crowns are designed to be a perfect fit and last for 15+ years.

Do you have an old crown that’s cracked, feels loose, or has fallen out? Contact us. We may be able to bond the crown back in place or replace your crown entirely.


A dental bridge is a modern-day solution for one or multiple missing teeth and is often viewed as a better alternative to a removable partial denture. A dental bridge is fixed in place (non-removable) and very durable. Custom-made bridges are also highly esthetic and look as beautiful and natural as your original missing tooth or teeth. Unlike dentures, dental bridges are very secure and allow you to eat the foods you love. They also promote healthy gums and prevent bone loss — something quite common in patients who wear dentures.

Using teeth on either side of your missing tooth, a bridge holds a replacement tooth in place. This process effectively “bridges” the gap in your mouth, restoring the beauty, health, and function of your smile. Dr Shah and Dr Karia offers custom-made dental bridges right here in our office. This treatment can often be completed without surgery and finished in as few as 2-3 weeks. Contact us today to find out if a dental bridge is the right choice for you.

In addition to restoring your natural-looking smile, dental bridges are also good for your health.

  • Preserves healthy jaw bone tissue, preventing bone loss
  • Provides a stable bite
  • Allows you to speak naturally
  • Ability to eat the foods you love


Tooth loss is one of the most challenging and embarrassing things a patient may deal with because of how often we smile, speak and eat. Losing even just one tooth can influence your ability to do these activities normally. Your dentist may suggest replacing your lost tooth or teeth immediately to provide comfort and aesthetics.

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. That’s because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth—things that people often take for granted.

When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.


This full removable denture is made and placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are re-moved and tissues have healed, which may take several months.


This removable denture is inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. Your dentist will take measurements and make models of your jaw during a preliminary visit. You don’t have to be without teeth during the healing period, but may need to have the denture relined or re-made after your jaw has healed.

Implant Supported:

If you’ve lost teeth, implant-supported dentures are one of the best investments you can make in your health. They’re a permanent method for repairing your smile, protecting your health, and im-proving your quality of life.

  • New Dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases. As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should go away. Follow-up appointments with the dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your dentist.
  • Even if you wear full dentures, you still have to practice good dental hygiene. Brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
  • Like your teeth, your dentures should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque. Brushing also can help keep the teeth from staining.
  • Rinse your dentures before brushing to remove any loose food or debris.
  • Use a soft bristle toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleanser to gently brush all the surfaces of the dentures so they don't get scratched.
  • When brushing, clean your mouth thoroughly—including your gums, cheeks, roof of your mouth and tongue to remove any plaque. This can help reduce the risk of oral irritation and bad breath.
  • When you’re not wearing your dentures, put them in a safe place covered in water to keep them from warping.
  • Occasionally, denture wearers may use adhesives. Adhesives come in many forms: creams, pow-ders, pads/wafers, strips or liquids. If you use one of these products, read the instructions, and use them exactly as directed. Your dentist can recommend appropriate cleansers and adhesives; look for products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Products with the ADA Seal have been evaluated for safety and effectiveness.

If you have any questions about your dentures, or if they stop fitting well or become damaged, contact us. Be sure to schedule regular dental checkups, too. The dentist will examine your mouth to see if your dentures continue to fit properly.
