High-Quality Care No Matter Your Circumstances
"Dr. Gillette SAVED MY TEETH. I had a horrific fall on my face while shoveling snow at my Opa’s house... and I was in a panic because I needed to get my mouth fixed before flying back home to Germany. Dr. Gillette’s staff was able to find me a same-day appointment and got my knocked back front tooth back in place to heal properly. Plus, they gave a detailed care plan so I could easily transition back to care in Germany. They were so considerate of my mangled lip and really saved the day! Best dentist I’ve ever been to!"
Trauma or infection can cause broken or decayed teeth, which can be incredibly painful and make chewing and speaking difficult. Dr. Gillette in Arvada can repair and protect compromised teeth with dental crowns. A dental crown can prevent the need for extraction by strengthening a tooth following root canal therapy. They can also hide imperfections like intrinsic stains when veneers and dental bonding do not provide enough coverage.
Missing teeth make everyday tasks such as eating and speaking a challenge. Tooth loss can occur as a result of trauma, gum disease, or untreated decay and can cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. A dental bridge from our Arvada, CO, dentist can improve your quality of life by renewing your ability to chew and speak properly. Made from state-of-the-art medical-grade ceramics, a dental bridge is customized to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. This solution can restore the balance and function of your smile.
Missing teeth have a significant impact on your overall health and well-being. Tooth roots do more than just hold a tooth in place—they also help retain jawbone tissue. When a tooth is lost, the bone tissue begins to recede. Left untreated, this can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, leading to an aged appearance and further tooth loss. Dental implants replace tooth roots to support restorations such as bridges and crowns while providing the stimulation needed to stop bone atrophy.
All-on-4® implants provide a solution for those who may not qualify for traditional dental implants due to bone atrophy. All-on-4 uses four strategically placed implant posts to maximize contact with existing bone tissue, often eliminating the need for a bone graft. Once in place, these implants can immediately support a full denture. This procedure can usually be completed in one visit to our Arvada, CO, practice.
Teeth that are chipped, slightly crooked, worn, or misshapen may cause you to hide your smile due to self-consciousness. Dr. Gillette can conceal these imperfections with porcelain veneers. These ultra-thin, custom-crafted porcelain shells are engineered to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel. They can be precisely color-matched to your surrounding teeth. The smile enhancement provided by veneers can last 10 years or more with proper care.
Would you like straighter teeth, but the prospect of wearing bulky metal braces has you thinking twice? SureSmile® offers teens and adults a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Using a series of clear aligner trays, SureSmile can give you a straighter smile without the restrictions associated with conventional orthodontic treatment. Dr. Gillette can review your candidacy for SureSmile during your next visit to our Arvada dental office.
Left untreated, tooth decay can reach the inner tissue (called the pulp) of a tooth, causing a painful infection. Without prompt care, the infection can lead to tooth loss. A virtually painless root canal can save your smile by removing the infected pulp and preserving the exterior tooth structure with a durable dental crown.
Dr. Gillette always strives to preserve a patient's natural teeth, but sometimes an extraction is the best solution to improve their oral health. Impacted teeth, overcrowding, extensive decay, and extreme physical trauma can lead to the need for extraction. Our dentist will be happy to discuss your treatment options for replacing a tooth or teeth after extraction. Dr. Gillette can develop a custom-tailored dental plan that includes an implant-supported restoration or a traditional dental bridge.
