WHO ARE WE?
We are a modern, family dental practice with a focus on relationship-based care. Our goal is to enhance self-confidence, help people get over their fears of the dentist and inspire everyone to smile more! At Abundant Smiles, we know that your mouth is a part of the rest of your body, which is why we strive to keep up to date with the latest technology. We provide exceptional care, while using materials that are bio-compatible and non-toxic, along with advances to minimize radiation.
At your first appointment, we want to take the time to get to know YOU! We want to know more about your overall health, previous dental experiences and goals for your smile in order to provide you with the best care possible. Once we determine what motivates you, we will take necessary photographs and x-rays. At Abundant Smiles, we use reduced-radiation digital radiography and caries detection by a non-radiation fluorescence camera. This helps us be as minimally invasive as possible and prevent the need for more extensive treatment, all while reducing your exposure to radiation. Once we have all of the information we need, an exam will be completed and together we will create a treatment plan that is best for you. Our goal is to work with you to provide you with the tools needed to achieve life-long oral health.
After you have had a chance to get to know us and all questions have been answered about necessary treatment, a cleaning will be completed to give your pearly whites that sparkling fresh feeling. Some patients require deeper, more extensive cleanings to get the gums healthy. If this is the case, your cleaning may need to be started at the next appointment.
The majority of your treatment needs can be provided right in our office. We provide our patients with routine cleanings, exams, whitening and oral cancer screenings. Additionally, we complete standard dental care such as: extractions, root canals, mouth guards and Invisalign and we place tooth colored, non-metal fillings and crowns. We know the dentist can be a scary experience for some, so we also offer anti-anxiety options to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable.

DENTAL SERVICES DENVER
Your mouth is a part of the rest of your body. This is why we find it so important to help you keep your mouth healthy!
Tooth Replacement Options
No one ever wants to have a tooth removed, but if it's necessary there are many options to replace your missing tooth and return your mouth to full function.
Cavities can lead to discomfort and pain. It is important to take care of fillings as soon as possible to stop the cavity from progressing further. When cavities are removed, the missing tooth structure may be restored with a tooth-colored filling or may sometimes require a crown.
Invisalign offers a clear and removable solution to braces to help straighten your teeth and give you a smile you have always dreamed of!
We offer same day emergency appointments for those unexpected accidents and tooth aches.
One of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry is enhancing patient's self confidence. We offer many cosmetic procedures to help boost your smile.
We understand everyone has had unique previous dental experiences, some of which may have been unpleasant. We pride ourselves on helping patients overcome dental anxiety.
Therapeutic & Esthetic Botox®
Botox has multiple applications. Not only can it smooth lines and relax muscles, it can also be used to treat chronic headaches, migraines, TMJ pain and muscle aches.

Every effort will be made to closely estimate your co-payment and deductions, but the ultimate responsibility of any unpaid balance is yours.
