Cosmetic Dentistry at Ruby Canyon Dental

We know that having a beautiful smile is important to many people. Studies have shown that when people feel confident about their teeth, they feel confident about themselves. And we all know that when we feel confident, we make better first impressions, go after that job promotion, and smile proudly.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. They have become increasingly popular over the years because they require minimal tooth preparation and are very versatile. Our doctors routinely place ceramic veneers and have perfected the the skills required to place veneers so that they look and function just like your natural teeth.

Porcelain Veneers - Ruby Canyon Dental

Will porcelain veneers look like my natural teeth?

Porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable to the naked eye, and they are highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains.

How durable are porcelain veneers?

With proper care, porcelain veneers can have you confidently showing off your smile for decades! We handcraft all of our veneers from high-quality porcelain and then bond them to your teeth with state-of-the-art materials and technology.

Natural-Looking Dental Fillings

Your dentists in Grand Junction, CO have created a mercury-free dental practice. They use porcelain, tooth-colored inlays to create dental fillings that are beautiful, natural looking, and durable.

What Are the Advantages of Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings?

  • The resin inlays that we bond to your tooth create a secure fit and can last a lifetime.
  • We can use this type of dental restoration to repair a tooth that has had structure lost.
  • Tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride that can help prevent decay.

Can I Replace My Silver Fillings with a Tooth-Colored Restoration?

Yes! And it only takes two dental appointments!

Dental Fillings - Ruby Canyon Dental

During your first appointment, your Grand Junction dentist removes your old silver filling along with any tooth decay. We then take impressions of your teeth and place a temporary onlay (that looks just like your natural teeth) onto the tooth. At your second visit, we remove the temporary onlay and prepare the tooth for the permanent onlay. We then place bonding cement onto the tooth and bond the onlay onto your tooth with a high-intensity light. Finally, we polish the tooth so that the restoration looks and feels just like your natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel just like your natural teeth. If you have extreme damage to your tooth and your dentist determines that the tooth is beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to restore your smile. Dental crowns are an effective way to repair severe dental problems. We can even use them to permanently replace missing teeth!

How Long Does It Take to Fit a Dental Crown?

We use state-of-the-art CEREC® technology to create and place crowns in just ONE VISIT! CEREC’s computer-aided design and in-office milling process allow us to guarantee a great fit for your new restoration.

Benefits of a Dental Crown

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Support misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems

We look forward to treating you!

Dental Bridge

All of your teeth play an important role in everyday functions like speaking, chewing, and smiling. Your teeth also help maintain proper alignment of your mouth. Dental bridges are a great way of replacing missing teeth and maintaining proper function of your teeth and jaw.

A dental bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth. It attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth — it literally bridges the gap between teeth. Bridges can be either permanently attached (fixed bridges) or removable.

We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
