Solutions to Missing Teeth for Our Boulder Patients
Your teeth have a lot to do in your life, from practical functions like eating and speaking to social interaction at work and school. A full, beautiful smile can add confidence to your lifestyle, which is why we provide treatment options to replace missing teeth for our patients in the Boulder County area.
Because your teeth are such a huge part of who you are, restorative dentistry focuses on preserving your natural teeth instead of merely replacing them. At our Boulder area office in Lafayette Colorado, Dr. West and Dr. Johns offer a full spectrum of restorative dental procedures, including the following:
- Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are a great way to restore the aesthetics of your smile. A dental bridge utilizes the strength and stability of your surrounding teeth to bridge the gap of a missing tooth with a replacement tooth. Because it can be anchored to natural teeth or dental implants, a dental bridge provides a stable and comfortable solution for missing teeth.
- Dental Crowns: A dental crown replaces your damaged natural tooth crown, which is the visible part of your tooth. A crown can preserve your natural tooth root and give you a beautiful tooth crown that complements your surrounding teeth. Dental crowns can also be supported by dental implants.
- Implant Dentistry: We can place posts into your jaw that will support a variety of teeth replacements. We will carefully evaluate whether you are a candidate for implant dentistry and do whatever we can to make this a great solution for your missing teeth!
- Dentures: This classic method of replacing teeth can come with a twist for patients who qualify. With implant dentistry, we can now offer a more comfortable and stable method of securing dentures.
- Dental Fillings: Fillings preserve the integrity of a previously infected tooth and can protect your tooth from further damage from decay. We offer attractive tooth-colored fillings to restore your tooth while still preserving the beauty of your smile.
- Root Canals: A root canal removes infected tooth pulp from the core of your tooth. Tooth pulp helps your teeth grow and is therefore no longer needed when teeth reach mature size, allowing us to remove bacteria and save your natural tooth from falling out.
We want to help you find the option that works best for your unique mouth, so we will recommend the restorative option that works for your health and your lifestyle.
