Covid-19 Update

August 31, 2020

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and 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 continually making improvements.  Besides our standard 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.

 Some of our new procedures:

We complete a pre-screening questionnaire the day before all appointments. We ask our patients to wait in their car until the time of their appointment so that we limit the number of people in the office at any given time. We take temperatures as soon as patients arrive in the office and require all patients to wear masks while not in a treatment room. The clinical team wears two masks as well as a face shield to protect our patients. And, we have reconfigured the front desk to include plexiglass barriers and “stand stations” to show where patients should stand to follow social distancing requirements. 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. Finally, Dr. Andy regularly reviews the latest updates on how to best manage patient safety as we learn more about the virus.

We look forward to continuing to provide you with great care in the safest way possible during these unique times!

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.
