At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry we see many Lafayette, CO area children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.
I am Dr. Gordon West and I recommend that parents in Lafayette, CO encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most Boulder area sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.
If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry offer many restorative options.
If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be an option. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.
Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.
If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.
Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry has been offering cosmetic and sedation dentistry to the people of Lafayette, CO since 1998. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
