Beautiful Teeth Without Breaking The Bank

affordable teeth whitening Lafayette

At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Lafayette, our smile redesign patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a beneficial investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, attractive smile cannot be measured in dollars. We recognize, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.

Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to enhance your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.

Dental Bonding
In many cases, dental bonding can be used to correct a tooth that has been chipped.

When Gordon West repairs a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. Dr. West expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, Dr. West performs any required trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.

Dental bonding is typically less expensive than porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Call us at 720-862-3630 to discuss cosmetic dental financing options.

Beware of brand-new Boulder area practices that advertise unusually low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The proficiency and artistic ability required to attain minuscule tolerances should not be undertaken by a beginner. Thoroughly research any new cosmetic dentist you are considering for any cosmetic dental procedures or complete smile makeover.

Tooth Whitening
Most Lafayette people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening procedures. Gordon West recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and cause tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and uneven coloration.

Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you choose an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to obtain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more cost-effective in the long run.


What Can Fluoride Do For You, Boulder County?

Why Your Boulder County Cosmetic Dentist Uses Flouride

Hello, and welcome to the Lafayette Dental Blog. Today we will be answering questions about fluoride: “What is it, exactly, and why is it so beneficial to your dental health?”

Fluoride is a mineral, plain and simple. Fluoride occurs naturally in different foods as well as in water. Fluoride is also added to many of the oral care products sold in Louisville, Boulder, and Broomfield stores. This makes it possible for you to apply fluoride to your teeth when you brush your teeth or use mouth rinses.

And why would you want to put fluoride on your teeth? Because it will help to prevent tooth decay, of course! Fluoride does this by giving the teeth increased resistance against the acid attacks brought on by plaque bacteria as well as sugar in the mouth.

Fluoride is especially important for kids. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in, therefore fluoride exposure is extremely beneficial. But, stay tuned, adults: the benefits of topical fluoride are available to you as well!

This miracle mineral is also applied to teeth during routine cleanings at Boulder County and Lafayette dental offices.

I’m Dr. Gordon West and I have a full-service dental practice in Lafayette. Helping my dental patients maintain optimal dental health is important to me, and so is helping them achieve the smile they want through cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, teeth whitening and complete smile makeovers.

My practice, Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry has been serving the Boulder County, Louisville, and Broomfield area since 1998, and we would like you to be our next satisfied patient. Please contact us at 720-862-3630 so we can make an appointment for you.

7 Ways Dental Bonding Can Improve Your Smile In Lafayette, CO

7 Ways Cosmetic Dental Bonding Can Improve Your Smile In Lafayette, CO

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the Boulder area, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is or when it is useful to have the procedure done. Today in the Lafayette Dental Blog, we explain 7 ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening, when having a smile makeover.

Re-Contour Your Teeth At Gordon West DDS

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Get Your Boulder County Teeth In Shape

If your crooked, discolored teeth keep you from smiling and you feel like there is nothing you can do about it please give me a call! My name is Gordon West and my staff and I at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry have been giving the people of Lafayette something to smile about since 1998.

If you are disappointed with the smile mother nature gave you let me help you create the smile of your dreams. New procedures and materials now make it possible to completely revamp and restyle your mouth in Boulder.

If your teeth are uneven, Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry has several options to correct that. We can re-contour your teeth by removing a small portion of your enamel to change the length or shape of your tooth. If more is required to improve your smile we can offer you veneers or bonding.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are permanently attached to the fronts of your teeth, correcting any imperfections. They last much longer than dental bonding and preserve more natural tooth structure than crowns.

Many Colorado resident’s teeth have become discolored by drinking colas, tea, or coffee. If you have stained or discolored teeth and dream of having pearly white teeth then check out the many teeth whitening options at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry.

Stop hiding behind a timid smile. Take charge and let Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry create a confident, beautiful smile.

Your Perfect Smile Is Only A Few Dental Visits Away, Boulder County!

Your Cosmetic Dental Smile Is Only A Few Visits Away, Boulder County!

What does it take to really change the way you look? Hours upon hours at the gym? Expensive trips to the most cutting-edge salon in the Boulder area? What about a routine trip to your cosmetic dentist?

You may not love going to the dentist, but you will love the results when they help you find the best way to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening in Lafayette is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure, but the dramatic results never cease to impress.

Your Boulder, Boulder County, or Lafayette, CO dentist can work with you to develop a teeth whitening regimen that will be most effective. This may include any of the following three methods:

1. Bleaching done in-office. Sometimes called chairside bleaching, a special light is used while a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. A rubber shield or protective gel is used to keep your tender gums safe from the whitening agent.

2. Bleaching at home. Even though this is done at home, the peroxide-containing whiteners used do have potential side effects, so it’s a good idea to discuss this with your dentist. Also, there are many at-home whiteners available in Lafayette, Colorado drug stores, and your dentist can direct you to the best ones.

3. Toothpastes with whitening properties. When a toothpaste carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it means that it contains special chemical or polishing agents. These will provide additional stain removal which complements the surface stain removal offered by all toothpastes.

My name is Dr. Gordon West of Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Lafayette. Helping my dental patients establish good habits is important to me, as is helping them achieve the smile they want using cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, teeth whitening, bonding, and complete smile makeovers.

My practice, Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, is currently accepting new patients, so give us a call at 720-862-3630 to make an appointment!
