You may be in need of a dental crown if you have a weak, broken, or chipped tooth. With a crown, your tooth is artificially restored with a tooth-shaped cap placed over it. The crown essentially saves the weak tooth from breakage, fortifies it, and restores tooth shape and size. Specializing in restorative dentistry in Highlands Ranch, Cottonwood Dental Group effortlessly places beautiful crowns.

We offer CEREC same-day crowns to those who qualify.

We also utilize two excellent labs. Our aesthetic crown lab is nationally recognized and our everyday crown lab performs custom shading and staining in our office.

All crowns fit in perfectly, smoothly, and easily.



A comfortable full denture is needed when all teeth are missing, but if one or more natural teeth are still intact, an aesthetically pleasing partial denture can be created. Both full and partial dentures are removable, making them easy to clean and take off at night.

Implant-supported dentures are known as the “gold standard.” They are non-removable, contributing to greater security and comfort. Natural-looking, implant-supported dentures will not move or shift, so you can eat the foods you want…worry-free.



A dental bridge is an anchor-like restoration which joins two crowns on both sides of a missing tooth, restoring your smile and allowing for a proper bite, chewing, and speech. During your first visit, adjacent teeth will be shaped, allowing room for the placement of a crown and teeth impressions are made.

Appointment two sees us fit the new permanent bridge, and then a few other visits are needed just to check it is working properly. The bridge can then be permanently cemented into place.

Bridges are not only budget-friendly, they are aesthetically beautiful and a wonderful restorative option.


Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Multiple cavities or missing teeth may be causing you to hide your smile. With full mouth rehabilitation you can show it off again.

During our one-to-one interview we look at your records and discuss your desired smile. Digital radiographs are then taken, as well as intraoral and extraoral pictures. Once a plan is in place, we focus on restoring jaw muscles and joints. After this, we take a temporary wax-up and give you a prototype to take home. If the patient is happy, then the final porcelain restorations are completed.

In this process you are the priority! Everything is prepared so you can attain your dream smile!

Do You Have an Incomplete Smile?

Make missing teeth a thing of the past with our implant dentistry solutions.

While missing teeth can definitely have a negative impact on the aesthetics of your smile, it can also be detrimental to its health.

A dental implant provides a permanent solution for missing teeth! A small post is surgically placed into the jawbone. Once fully integrated and healed, a beautiful, natural-looking crown is placed above the gum line to complete the restoration. For implants we use Nobel Biocare as they have a long-standing reputation as quality implant designers, which is why we offer it to our patients.
