I have been coming to Colorado Dental Arts for the past 10 years, and could not be happier. I have a real phobia regarding dentistry, and they have treated me with great respect and without judgment. I cannot say enough about how great the staff is, and Dr. Krendl is just awesome.

A Closer Look at Your Treatment Options A Range of Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions
Porcelain veneers are an incredibly versatile treatment option. The thin, tooth-shaped shells are placed over the front of the teeth to mask imperfections. It is important to note that veneers are only used for cosmetic purposes on the anterior teeth; they aren't used on the back teeth. Depending on your needs, our cosmetic dentist can place a single veneer or a set of veneers to enhance your smile.
- Can treat many issues at once
- Offers natural-looking results
- With proper care, veneers can last 10 years or more
- There are less expensive cosmetic dentistry options
- Since the treatment involves some enamel removal, it is not reversible
Like veneers, crowns can hide many types of dental imperfections. What sets crowns apart from veneers is that they encase the entire tooth rather than just covering the front surface. Our dentist may also recommend crowns if you have cracks, chips, wear, or other damage that could compromise the health of the tooth.
- If the crown will provide health benefits, it may qualify for insurance coverage
- Can also be used as a restorative dentistry treatment
- With proper care, crowns can last 15 years or more
- Require extensive alteration of the tooth
Teeth whitening can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile. Whitening is especially effective for patients who have tooth discoloration that affects the tooth enamel. This type of extrinsic staining is often caused by repeated exposure to dark-colored foods and drinks or smoking. Deep stains that affect the inner tissues of the teeth don't respond as well to whitening. In these cases, our cosmetic dentist can mask stains with veneers or dental bonding.
- Relatively inexpensive
- Quick treatment
- Dramatic results
- Only treats stains that affect the tooth enamel
- Doesn't address other cosmetic dental issues
Our dentist is an Invisalign certified provider. Invisalign uses clear aligners to address minor to moderate misalignment issues affecting the teeth. If you want to close gaps or straighten your teeth without wearing braces, Invisalign is a great solution.
- With proper care, offers permanent results
- May be covered by insurance
- Results can take a year or more
The dental bonding procedure involves the application of a composite resin material, the same one used in the dental filling procedure. Our dentist will use the bonding material to mask stains, fill gaps, lengthen the teeth, or make other adjustments to the appearance of your smile.
- Quick; treatment can typically be completed in one hour at our Littleton office
- Re-treatment may be needed in about five years
- Results don't look as realistic as veneers
A smile makeover is a treatment plan that combines multiple cosmetic dentistry solutions. For example, patients may wish to undergo teeth whitening before having porcelain veneers placed; this allows our dentist to ensure that the natural teeth match the shade of the new veneers.
- All cosmetic dental issues can be addressed in one comprehensive treatment plan
- Costlier than other treatments due to the combination of multiple procedures
