Covid-19 Update

April 24, 2020

We are excited to announce that we will re-open for dental care starting Wednesday, April 28th! Governor Polis announced that our state is transitioning from the “Stay at Home Order” to a “Safer at Home Order”. Earlier this week Larimer County also approved dental offices to re-open as long as pre-cautionary measure have been implemented. We have implemented their recommendations as well as our own procedures to keep everyone healthy. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety! Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and this is one area where we are constantly making improvements.  Besides our infection control procedures we have made several other office changes to keep you safe. We understand that some of you may want to delay or reschedule your appointments and we are happy to do this for you. Please give us a call and we will find a time that is convenient. With our additional safety procedures in place and your cooperation we feel that we can provide great care in a safe environment.

 Firstly, how we schedule patients has changed. We are staggering the schedule to limit the number of people in the office as well as to promote social distancing. Of the 5 treatment rooms we have, we are currently only using 3 to increase the distance between everyone. In the reception area we have spaced our chairs out, leaving 6 feet between them. You may notice that this area will no longer have magazines, coffee, or bottled water since these items are difficult to clean and disinfect. When checking out we have taped blue squares on the carpet letting everyone know where to stand. This will help keep both other patients and employees a safe distance apart. In between appointments we are using hospital grade disinfectant to clean all surfaces in both our treatment rooms as well as in the front office, bathrooms and reception area, and these areas are being disinfected on the hour.  

Renew Your Oral Health with a Restorative Dental Treatment

Two hygienists work in a dental labDental problems typically happen to everyone at least once in their lives, and you shouldn't have to feel guilty about it – instead, Dr. Andy Maples and the rest of our team at West Lake Dental are here to offer support. We specialize in providing quality care that’s honest, friendly, and as advanced as possible so that you have an ideal experience every time you come in. With the help of our variety of restorative dentistry services, from crowns to inlays and onlays, we can correct cavities, structural damage, missing teeth, and much more in a quality, lifelike manner.

Traditional Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are an important cornerstone of our care due to their versatility; Loveland dentist, Dr. Maples can use crowns to effectively correct areas of serious decay, injury, or even cosmetic flaws. They're also typically used as the finishing touches for root canal and dental implant procedures, allowing patients to regain a smile that looks and feels completely lifelike. Our crowns are made from high-quality porcelain and ceramic materials, and we always take our time to ensure that they match your original tooth’s shape and shade as closely as possible. The results are virtually seamless!

Crowns can also be fused together to create the sturdy tooth replacement solution many patients need: dental bridges. We use dental bridges to replace one or more missing teeth in a row, as long as there are also healthy teeth located on either side of the gap. Additional crowns are also used to fit securely over these adjacent teeth, serving as anchors.

Full & Partial Dentures

Removable full and partial dentures are also available for patients in need of a more convenient and affordable tooth replacement solution. Contact West Lake Dental today if you have any questions for our team members, or if you're ready to schedule an initial appointment! Our dental office is located in Loveland, CO, and we also serve the nearby areas of Fort Collins, Berthoud, and beyond.

Root Canal Therapy

Sometimes, teeth can become so badly decayed or injured that dangerous bacteria are able to penetrate their inner chamber. In these cases, extraction may become a very real possibility in order to protect your oral health. At West Lake Dental, our team wants to do whatever it takes to help preserve your full, natural smile; that's why we offer root canal therapy as a saving grace that can restore your hurting tooth's vitality.

During the procedure, Dr. Maples will carefully access the inner chamber of the tooth and thoroughly remove diseased pulp before sealing the area to reduce the risk of further infection. Finally, we'll create a brand-new dental crown for you to restore any lost tooth structure, completing the process. While root canal therapy may have earned a scary reputation over the years, the truth is that most patients say it hurts no more than receiving a filling does, and as long as it's cared for properly with regular check-ups and homecare, most treated teeth can go on to last for the rest of the patient’s life.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

While our team here in Loveland, CO works hard to avoid the threat of extraction, there are times it may be necessary in order to protect the rest of your smile. This need is most common when faced with wisdom teeth, which are the last permanent teeth to erupt. If your smile is already crowded with plenty of teeth, the lack of room can cause your wisdom teeth to emerge from the gums at an angle or even not emerge at all, causing them to become trapped in your jaw. If Dr. Maples determines that extracting your wisdom teeth is the best solution for your overall oral health and happiness, we'll be sure to handle the procedure as carefully and gently as possible so that you can remain comfortable.
