Dental crowns can perform several functions, including restoring teeth that are broken, worn, or decayed.
These restorations can also be used as a cosmetic treatment to conceal imperfections or paired with dental implants to replace lost teeth.
Dr. Andy Maples offers traditional and same-day crowns for our patients at West Lake Dental in Loveland, CO.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Simply put, a dental crown is a cap that covers your natural tooth. They are made from durable materials like porcelain, zirconia, or ceramics. We can create same-day crowns in our office or provide you with a temporary crown if your permanent crown is being made in a lab, so you don't have to wait long for a new smile.

Patients Explain Why They Return to Our Loveland Office
Dr. Maples and his staff have been amazing. The atmosphere is comfortable and they take great care to make sure you understand your options and know what's going on throughout your dental procedure.
Dr. Maples had a gentle hand and I appreciated how discomfort free my entire procedure was. Will definitely be getting all my dental work done at Westlake Dental! Highly recommend
Dr. Andy Maples and everyone at West Lake Dental are truly amazing. I tell all of my friends and co-workers that I truly enjoy going to the dentist, because my dentist office is that good. I recently had a filling and haven't had one for 8 years so I was nervous about what to expect. It was such a great experience from start to finish. I didn't even feel the numbing injections. Dr. Andy called me at 8pm to check on me and make sure I was doing ok after the procedure. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and truly make you feel like they care.View on Google

"...A Kind and Caring Group." What Loveland, CO, Patients Have to Say
I am a retired doctor and new to the area. I was referred to Dr. Maples through family members. I must tell you firstly that I was envious of the manner in which his office is operated. I had practiced my profession for thirty-six years and have not seen a better run operation. The staff is highly skilled and were a kind and caring group. Each time I've visited the office I have been treated like a family member. Rarely do you find such a consistently genuine dental office.View On Google
