Dental CrownsIs your smile filled with stained, bent, crooked, cracked, or chipped teeth that make it not much of a beautiful smile at all? For those of us who have any or all of these dental deficiencies in our mouths, there's a common solution that can shore it all up: dental crowns.

At the office of Ronald L. Morse, DDS, PC, patients suffering from bad teeth find lasting solutions for patching up and restoring their smile back to full beauty. That's because Dr. Morse and his staff are well-versed in the placement of dental crowns, which are small "caps" placed atop broken or disfigured teeth.

Dr. Morse even offers E4D™ technology on site. This innovative dental technology is the future of dentistry, and allows a high-tech analysis of patients' teeth. The E4D™ uses computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) that allows dentists to retrieve digital impressions of a patient's dental profile. This means no awkward impression process needs to be used. E4D™ brings the analog crown creation process, which once took days to complete, into the 21st century of no mess and quick turnaround.

This technique puts the crown creation process on the fast track, and it can expedite and improve upon the traditional veneer and filling process as well. In fact, the E4D™ is so powerful that numerous dental restorations can be created during the same visit.

Once the crown is ready to be made, it is constructed from a very strong material, identical in appearance to natural teeth and just as reliable. E4D is fast, too, as patients who need crowns can get theirs in one day at Dr. Morse's office in Lakewood, CO.

For more information on dental crowns, and why they're one of the leading options for restoring your smile, give Dr. Morse a call at (303) 279-6929, and begin your journey to having more beautiful teeth today!

VeneersWhen it comes to the color, shape, or alignment of the teeth, porcelain veneers can correct a variety of problems.

Advancements in cosmetic dentistry mean that restorations are more natural-looking and comfortable than ever before. One of the most popular choices is veneers. These thin porcelain laminates cover the surface of the teeth to create a new, flawless layer. Here, the dental team at the office of Ronald L Morse DDS, PC offer the top three reasons people decide on veneers to completely transform their smile.

For stains and discolorations
Whitening is another popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. Unfortunately, certain stains and anatomical situations do not respond well to the bleaching agents. For instance, people whose teeth turned gray after taking certain antibiotics do not typically notice any results from whitening. If the gums have receded, the exposed root enamel will also not respond to whitening treatments. The bleaching agents do not have any effect on existing dental work, such as fillings or crowns. For these common reasons, your Lakewood cosmetic dentist will likely suggest veneers to evenly lighten the shade of your teeth.
For size and length
If your teeth have become worn down over time or have grown in unevenly in length or shape, veneers can also help solve this problem. By layering the veneer over the existing teeth, each tooth will be proportional and symmetrical while still retaining a natural appearance.
For crooked teeth
Moderate misalignment can also be corrected with veneers. Teeth that overlap or have small spaces between them can be corrected this way. Severe crowding should be fixed with orthodontics first; veneers may be the finishing touch they need.

With proper maintenance, veneers can last more than a decade. If you think your teeth might benefit from these revolutionary restorations, contact Ronald L Morse DDS, PC, your Lakewood cosmetic dentist, to learn more about revitalizing your smile!
