Gregg L. Lage DDS, PC can help you decide which procedures you are interested in for your smile makeover. Whether you have minor concerns like teeth staining that you want to have addressed or you have a variety of challenges, like missing teeth, damaged teeth, or teeth that simply look tired or worn, we can help you find the solution that will work best for improving your smile. Very often, this could involve a combination of procedures like dental veneers, Lumineers, dental crowns, dental bridges, and more. The best way to discover which options will be the most effective for you is to call 303-427-4552 and schedule an appointment with our Denver, CO cosmetic dentist office. In the meantime, here are a few common dental concerns and the solutions we have for correcting them.

Stained Teeth

If you have stained teeth, this is something we can correct with our smile makeover procedures. We often begin with a standard teeth whitening procedure; however, this is not always enough to remove the deep stains and discoloration that have happened over time. In this case, we may want to place dental veneers or bonding material on the surface of your teeth in order to fully cover dark teeth, gray teeth, or to restore damaged ones.

Damaged Teeth

We will make a recommendation for a solution to restore your damaged teeth based on the extent of the overall damage. For example, if you have a slight crack, it may be restored with Lumineers. However, if the crack is more significant or there is a major dental chip, we are likely to recommend dental veneers, since they are thicker than Lumineers.

Simultaneously, if you have lost a large portion of your dental enamel due to an infection or an accident, you will need something more comprehensive. In this case, dental crowns will be your best bet. We can give you natural-looking dental crowns that will blend in with your surrounding teeth. Dental crowns are a cap that surrounds the entire visible area of your tooth. This makes it possible to save teeth that are so damaged, they would otherwise need to be extracted.

Gaps Between Your Teeth

Having a gap between your teeth is actually more of a minor issue than you may think. Gregg L. Lage DDS, PC can use Lumineers and dental veneers to close gaps between your front teeth or any other visible teeth. If you live in the Denver area and want to address this issue without orthodontics, we encourage you to call 303-427-4552 and schedule an appointment with our 80221 dental office.

Missing Teeth

When you visit our office with missing teeth, we will recommend a dental restoration that gives you the full functionality and appearance of the teeth you have lost. We have several options for doing so, including partial dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. Which one we recommend for you will be based on your timeline and your budgetary constraints.

Additionally, you should consider what life would be like while wearing partial dentures, a dental bridge, or dental implants. Partial dentures are often recommended when you need an immediate solution; however, since they are removable, they do not provide the same level of security that dental bridges or dental implants do. Dental bridges help bridge the gap between dentures and implants, they look natural, and they are a convenient solution. If you want something that will be as durable as your natural teeth, there is nothing that quite compares to dental implants.

Crooked Teeth

A smile makeover is typically not complete without addressing any crooked teeth you have. While orthodontics is still a viable solution, many of our Denver patients are interested in something that can be completed far faster. In some cases, we can use dental veneers to straighten your teeth and improve your smile. If you want to explore this option and find out if it will provide the teeth straightening that you require, call 303-427-4552 and schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist office.
