Dentist in Lakewood, CO
At Northstar Dental, we aim to prevent dental problems before their occurrence impacts your life. This is why we recommend our patients visit us at least twice a year for their professional dental cleanings and checkups. Even if you suffer from any dental problems due to genetics, poor hygiene, infrequent checkups, or other factors, we offer restorative dentistry services. These services aim to improve the condition of your smile and overall oral health.
Dental fillings help restore minor to moderate tooth decay instances. Most fillings are made of a material known as composite resin that is color-matched to the existing shade of your tooth enamel, allowing it to seamlessly blend in with the rest of your teeth.
A crown is a cap placed to improve the structure and aesthetics of a decayed or damaged tooth. This procedure entails the complete reshaping of your tooth to accommodate the crown. Once your tooth has been reshaped, the dental crown is placed and stuck to the enamel with a special adhesive.
CEREC is a lab-made crown that is made within a day. It uses computer-aided manufacturing to ensure the perfect dental crown for your tooth.
A dental bridge is a tooth replacement procedure that entails two dental crowns linked to one another through a new tooth or point. A traditional dental bridge is generally supported by two surrounding teeth while other bridges can also be supported by dental implants.
An implant is a small metal post that is surgically embedded into your jawbone, serving as the root of a prosthetic tooth. Once in place, the implant will fuse with your jawbone to provide a solid structure for the crown placement. Dental implants are a great cosmetic dentistry option to restore lost teeth, and with that, the aesthetics of your smile.
If you have experienced tooth loss, several options are available to you to correct your tooth loss and restore your confidence in performing everyday activities, one of which is a dental implant. If you want to find out more about dental implants, what the surgery entails, and what to expect after we perform the procedure, we at Northstar Dental are here to assist you and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
A patient needs to have a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw for their dental implant installation procedure to be successful. A very thin or soft jawbone often results in implant failure. However, we offer bone grafting surgery to add an adequate amount of bone to your jaw for a successful dental implant.
A denture is a traditional removable dental appliance that is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. While a partial denture can be attached to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps, a complete denture comes with an acrylic base that supports an entire arch of prosthetic teeth. At Northstar Dental, we offer customized dentures that offer superior comfort and ease-of-use.
Inlays and onlays are the go-to solutions to fix decayed teeth that are too large for fillings and too small for dental crowns. An inlay entails restoration that is placed within the bite surface of a tooth, while an onlay is restoration that extends beyond the occlusal cusps.
Whether it’s a wisdom tooth or decayed and damaged tooth, we offer both simple and surgical extractions. A simple extraction is performed on a tooth that has erupted above the gumline, and a surgical extraction is performed on a tooth that is either already impacted or is yet to erupt.
A root canal is the final effort made to save a tooth from extraction. Root canals are often recommended in cases where the infection spreads to the center of the tooth that contains connective tissues and nerve endings.
Not only do straight teeth make you feel more confidence, but they also improve your overall oral health by making it easier to keep your teeth and gums clean. Our Invisalign® clear aligners help restore the function of your teeth very discreetly without having to resort to traditional orthodontic treatments.
It is possible that you may have multiple missing or problematic teeth that require multiple dental procedures. We offer full mouth reconstruction services to give your teeth and gums a complete overhaul.
