If you have weak, worn, damaged, or misshapen teeth, you may feel that there is no hope for your smile.
All-ceramic restorations are strong, durable, and natural-looking. They can restore the appearance of a single tooth or an entire arch.
At West Lake Dental in Loveland, CO, Dr. Andy Maples can restore your oral health and appearance with all-ceramic restorations.
Why Choose All-ceramic Restorations?
Restore the Appearance of Your Smile
Aesthetics are a major concern when the front teeth are compromised, discolored, or misshapen. Porcelain can deliver the aesthetic outcome you desire. Dental ceramic is a durable material that closely resembles natural enamel. It reflects light in the same manner as your teeth and can be matched to almost any color.
Dental restorations that are made out of ceramic are a solution that can last for many years. With proper care and a good oral hygiene routine, these prosthetics can last for 15 years or more.
Ceramic restorations can restore the form and function of damaged teeth. They can also be used to address lost teeth. The high-quality ceramic material has the strength to withstand the daily wear and tear caused by biting and chewing. No matter the degree of damage, we offer a comprehensive range of restorative dentistry treatments for your smile.

I've been a patient here for about two years. All of the staff and Dr. Andy are caring and friendly without a doubt. But, I think their strength is in their professionalism and attention to detail. They do everything they can to make sure their patients have a good experience and receive the highest quality care available.
Every staff member I dealt with was very professional, polite, and compassionate. I needed to be seen urgently as a new patient and they were able to get me in within 24 hours. After thoroughly explaining to me what needed to be done, they were able to get me another same day appt for some much needed dental work to relieve pain. I am so appreciative of everyone at this office, I will be switching my primary dental care to this place!
Porcelain Veneers and Fillings?
Veneers are also made of ceramic porcelain material. However, they are not considered a restorative treatment. They are solely used to mask cosmetic imperfections affecting the anterior teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings are a restorative treatment, but the material used in this treatment is not ceramic; it is a composite resin. This material can be shaped directly in the cavity, rather than fabricating the prosthetic in a lab or with a milling machine.
for Your All-Ceramic Restorations
Good Oral Hygiene
Ceramic crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays are durable, but they still require good oral hygiene. Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day will help keep both the tooth and the restoration clean, and keep it looking its best.
Avoid Bad Habits
Habits such as biting on your fingernails or opening bottles with your teeth can cause your restorations to wear prematurely or become dislodged. Avoiding these habits can help your restorations last longer.
Visit the Dentist
Visit the dentist twice a year so the health of your smile and the condition of your restorations can be checked. If your restoration becomes cracked or damaged in any way, it can allow bacteria to reach the vulnerable natural tooth, causing cavities or infection.
Dr. Andy is THE best dentist I have ever gone to! He is very patient and kind and listens to you. He tried to help right away and not give you more than what you actually need. He is always honest and his staff are excellent and super super sweet! It's easy to make an appointment and get suggestions right away.. never have to wait and if you do it's only because Dr. Andy is giving his very best to every single person that sits in his chair.
I have been seeing Dr. Andy since he started here years ago and he is the best dentist I have ever had. If you need a dentist he is the one. He and his staff are incredible. He always calls at the end of the day after I have had any work done to see if I am doing alright.
