top cosmetic dentist Lafayette

You may not be able to express why all the elements of a great smile blend in perfect harmony, but you know it when you see it. It’s the kind of great smile you can get with cosmetic dentistry from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO.

Traditional dentistry addresses the health of your teeth and gums, and that certainly has its place in what we do. Cosmetic dentistry aims to complement the overall general and dental health of each patient.

We do more than recommend specific procedures. We consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth, and the facial shape and coloring of each patient. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment.

Your teeth take a lot of wear and tear over the years. But cosmetic dentistry from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO can restore your smile to its youthful appearance. Even the smallest improvement can boost your self-confidence! We also offer dental implants, and treat sleep apnea. Schedule an appointment today!

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Boulder

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Boulder Hello! Welcome to the Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our Lafayette cosmetic dentistry practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.

My name is Dr. Gordon West, DDS. I have been practicing dentistry in Lafayette since 1998. Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry is a full-service dental office located at 1140 West S. Boulder Rd, Suite 201 in Lafayette, Colorado. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for clients in the Boulder area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.

When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a dental restoration is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.

If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible tooth-colored fillings. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our Longmont cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the ‘metal’.

Another reason some Broomfield and Louisville clients have had their old fillings replaced is because they are concerned about the possible heavy metal toxicity of the mercury in the silver.

If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings, call us at 720-862-3630 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our Lafayette cosmetic dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.

Smile – it increases your face value!

Correcting Severe Dental Problems in Lafayette

Correcting Severe Dental Problems in Lafayette Each separate restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedure performed in Boulder can address a specific dental problem. For example, a porcelain veneer can perfect the surface of a tooth that is discolored or slightly misshapen. Dental bonding can fill a small chip in an otherwise healthy tooth.

Some Lafayette dental problems are more extensive and require a combination of procedures. Crown restoration combined with soft tissue grafts can restore a severely decayed tooth with the root exposed. A bone graft and dental implant can restore a missing tooth in an area where the jaw bone has receded. Orthodontia followed by tooth bleaching totally transforms a smile by straightening and whitening.

What is the difference between tooth bleaching and whitening? Whitening is the term for procedures which remove surface stains to restore the degree of natural lightness. Bleaching goes even further by lightening teeth beyond their natural shade. That’s right: you don’t have to resign yourself to yellow teeth even if they have been that way your whole life! The natural shade of your teeth, by the way, like your skin and hair color, is determined by genetics.

Some Lafayette smiles have been gleaming for years by regular whitening. You can maintain the whiteness of your teeth just as you maintain your fitness level. (Of course it is a lot easier to make a quick visit to your Lafayette dentist once a year for whitening touch-ups than sweating in a gym several times a week!)

We live in an age where severe dental problems can be permanently corrected. You don’t have to participate in a TV makeover show in Hollywood to access these premium cosmetic dental procedures. They are available right here in Lafayette, Longmont and Louisville. Dr. Gordon West has the same advanced training and extensive experience as the dentists who keep the smiles of famous actors and musicians camera-ready.

Schedule a consultation at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry to discover the perfect combination of procedures to achieve your ultimate smile. Our phone number is 720-862-3630.
