Denver and Lakewood, Colorado
The beauty of today's cosmetic dentistry is the merging of innovative technology, a more preventive and comprehensive approach and better quality materials. As materials continue to evolve, they will no doubt become stronger, longer-lasting, and more aesthetically pleasing.

Today’s top-notch dental porcelain comes in a variety of shades, designed to match any enamel color. For the outside of an all-porcelain crown, we use this natural-looking porcelain. For the inside of the crown, we use a porcelain made of zirconia that increases the crown’s strength.
