Patients in Denver and beyond seek holistic restorative dentistry treatments
Restorative dentistry involves repairing and restoring decayed, damaged, or dislodged teeth. When teeth need to be restored, the South Lakewood Dental team offers an alternative to crowns called biomimetics. Instead of removing healthy tooth structure in preparation for crowns, only the damaged portions of teeth are eliminated. This ensures that the teeth remain as intact and healthy as possible and minimizes risk for infection.
Preserving healthy tooth structure
Our team recognizes that teeth need to expand and contract. However, dental crowns restrict these important functions. Biomimetics is a safe and highly effective solution for restoring health and beauty to the teeth. Patients in Denver and beyond seek our practice for alternatives to traditional dental restorations, such as biomimetics.
Providing safe and effective treatments
One of the common restorations in dentistry is fillings. While other dental practices may offer amalgam fillings, we choose safer alternatives. Amalgam is composed of about half mercury, a potent neurotoxin. When mercury vapors are released into the body while chewing food, they can lead to numerous health issues. The vapors can affect the placenta and may contribute to birth defects.
Avoiding the risks posed by amalgam fillings
We operate a mercury free dental practice to avoid the potential danger of amalgam. Instead, we offer composite resin fillings. This material blends nicely with the smile and is biocompatible, meaning it does not cause harm to the body. Composite fillings are durable and not sensitive to temperature. Therefore, they are less likely to pull away from teeth or crack. In addition to offering a mercury free environment, we practice mercury safe dentistry. Our dentist, Dr. Scott Stewart, has the training and experience required to safely and effectively remove amalgam fillings. Dr. Stewart and our team follow International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology protocol to ensure safe removal procedures. This involves implementing a number of safeguards for the patients, our staff, and the environment.
South Lakewood Dental is a holistic dental practice, meaning we understand the connection between oral and overall health. We provide various services including cosmetic, general, and laser dentistry.
