Dental Services


A dental bridge can effectively replace one or more missing teeth to restore the function, health, and beauty of your smile. Two dental crowns (also called dental caps) are placed on the two teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap to support the new tooth. Dr. McArthur may recommend a dental bridge in order to:

Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
Restore lost facial volume
Improve your ability to chew and eat
Enhance the appearance of your smile

We use dental bridges created from tooth-colored materials for a natural-looking, beautiful restoration. If you are missing one or more teeth, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. Our caring dentist and dental team look forward helping you achieve a gorgeous, healthy smile!

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are an aesthetic and effective choice for restoring teeth affected by minor damage and decay. Composite fillings are created using composite resin, which is tooth-colored and will match the look of your natural teeth for a beautiful restoration. During the dental treatment, Dr. McArthur will remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth and fill in the tooth with composite resin to improve its health, function, and appearance. Dr. McArthur will also shape and polish the composite dental filling to ensure that fits your mouth comfortably and beautifully. We welcome you to call our office today to learn more about the benefits of composite dental fillings. We are eager to improve your oral health!

Dentures and Partials

If you are missing many or all of your natural teeth, dentures can restore the function and beauty of your smile. Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace your missing teeth. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dr. McArthur, will ensure that your custom dentures fit your mouth comfortably and securely and that they look and feel natural. Your dentures can help to:

Restore lost facial volume
Improve your ability to eat, chew, and speak
Complete one or more dental implants
Enhance the beauty of your smile

Your custom dentures will be created from materials that look like natural teeth and gums for beautiful, aesthetic results. We invite you to call our friendly dental team to learn whether dentures are right for you.

Oral Surgery

If you are experiencing a serious dental problem, your dentist, Dr. McArthur, may recommend oral surgery to improve your oral health. The following conditions may necessitate oral surgery:

Facial injury
Cleft lip and cleft palate
Facial infection
Tooth loss
Impacted teeth
Jaw problems

Dr. McArthur we may refer you to an oral surgeon to best meet your dental needs. Dr. McArthur and his knowledgeable dental team will counsel with you to understand the options for treating your dental problems and to help you choose the best form of treatment. We are committed to helping you achieve optimal oral health and a gorgeous, healthy smile. Please contact our dental office today to learn more and to schedule your consultation with our caring dentist.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is used to restore teeth suffering from severe infection, decay, or damage. Root canal therapy can effectively improve your oral health and can prevent the need for tooth extraction, as well as preventing infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. During root canal therapy, we ensure that the patient is extremely comfortable before beginning work, then remove the infected or damaged portion of the dental pulp, fill in the remaining tooth structure, and may restore the tooth with a dental crown to protect the tooth and restore its shape, appearance, and function. The following are signs that you may benefit from root canal therapy:

Facial swelling
Tooth pain while chewing
Pain in the tooth when you bite down
Oversensitivity of the teeth to hot or cold drinks

We will ensure that your root canal therapy is a pleasant, painless dental experience. In especially serious cases, Dr. McArthur may refer you to an endodontist (a dentist who specializes in treating dental pulp). If you are experiencing any tooth pain, we invite you to contact us today to get you comfortable!


Bonding is a simple cosmetic dental treatment that can make your smile look whiter, straighter, and more beautiful. We can enhance the appearance of your smile, improving:

Cracked or chipped teeth
Discolored or stained teeth
Crooked or misshapen teeth
Gaps or spaces between the teeth

Cosmetic bonding involves bonding composite resin to your natural teeth; composite resin is available in a variety of shades, allowing Dr. McArthur to match the composite resin color to your natural tooth color for beautiful results. To discover the benefits of cosmetic dental bonding, we welcome you to call us today!


Dr. McArthur is proud to be an Invisalign preferred provider! Invisalign is an excellent option for straightening your teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces. Invisalign works through a series of clear, smooth plastic aligner trays, which gently and gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to discreetly straighten your teeth. The Invisalign aligners are also removable, so you can brush, floss, eat, and drink as usual. Invisalign can correct a number of orthodontic problems, including:

Gapped teeth
Problems with the bite (overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite)
Misaligned teeth
Overly crowded teeth

Dr. McArthur, will ensure that your custom Invisalign aligners fit your mouth comfortably. He holds special expertise in Invisalign treatment, and he is eager to help you achieve the gorgeous, healthy smile of your dreams. Call our dental office in Lakewood, Colorado today to schedule your consultation!

Porcelain Veneers

Are you looking for a solution to cosmetic dental flaws? Porcelain veneers might be right for you! Dental veneers are very thin shells designed to fit over your natural teeth to correct cosmetic dental flaws. Veneers are created from porcelain to ensure that your new smile is durable and looks beautiful and natural. Porcelain dental veneers can correct a number of cosmetic dental flaws, including:

Misaligned teeth
Chipped or worn teeth
Gapped teeth
Stained or discolored teeth
Irregularly shaped teeth

Dr. McArthur, will make sure your custom dental veneers fit your smile comfortably. To learn more about dental veneers and to schedule your consultation, please call or visit our dental office today!

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is an effective, simple way to improve your smile and boost your self-confidence! Professional teeth whitening can whiten and brighten your smile by lessening the appearance of stains and discoloration. Over time, your teeth may have become discolored and stained due to a variety of factors, such as:

The natural aging process
Consumption of certain foods and drinks
Tobacco use

We offer professional teeth whitening services to combat these factors and make your smile more inviting and attractive. If you are interested in whitening your teeth, please contact our dental office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. McArthur. We look forward to enhancing your smile!

All-Ceramic / Porcelain Crowns

A ceramic or porcelain dental crown can effectively protect and restore a tooth that has been damaged or weakened. By completely covering the tooth, a dental crown can improve the tooth’s structure, function, and appearance. Dr. McArthur may recommend a porcelain dental crown to:

Support a dental bridge
Repair a broken or cracked tooth
Complete a dental implant
Follow up root canal therapy
Enhance the beauty of your smile

We use all-ceramic or porcelain dental crowns, ensuring the crown is durable and matches your natural tooth color, and resulting in a strong, beautiful restoration. We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about the benefits of all-ceramic dental crowns!

Oral Devices

Through at home sleep studies, and working with your medical insurance, we’re able to help treat sleep apnea with an oral appliance instead CPAP machine.

Sleep apnea is no fun for the sufferer or for anyone within a five mile radius. Okay, so maybe we’re exaggerating just a bit, but those with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) tend to bring down the house with loud snoring, choking, and gasping for breath throughout the night. On top of being disruptive, OSA makes it difficult for sufferers to feel rested and refreshed, and is even a potentially life-threatening disorder. In order to remedy these issues, many dental experts recommend the use of various oral appliances.
