Dental emergencies, such as teeth being knocked loose or out, trauma resulting in cracked or broken teeth, abscess beneath a tooth, sudden swelling around the jaw, or significant tooth pain often demand immediate attention. Unfortunately, treatment for dental emergencies is not always fast. In fact, under some circumstances, you may have to wait for weeks and make multiple visits to the dentist to complete treatment for an emergency dental situation.
The dentists at the Cherry Creek office of DeWitt Dental Associates work to minimize both the time you spend in our office and the time you wait for completed services following dental emergencies. We offer a number of same-day restorations, including dental crowns, that can be created and placed during a single office visit, enabling us to quickly protect your teeth from further damage without sacrificing quality or aesthetics. If you are facing a dental emergency, give us a call at 303-321-5656 to schedule an appointment right away.
CEREC technology enables our dentists to create high quality, aesthetically pleasing restorations during a single office visit. With CEREC, we can produce tooth-colored dental crowns, inlays, onlays, dental bridges, and veneers in minutes, allowing us to complete your treatment on the same day you come in for service.
When it comes to dental emergencies, CEREC technology helps us meet both the immediate and long-term needs of the patient. Same-day dental crowns and similar restorations are milled on-site from a single block of zirconium or ceramics, making them durable and capable of performing all normal tooth functions. What’s more, these restorations are shaded, shaped, and contoured to look and feel just like the teeth they will be adjacent to, allowing them to protect and perfect your smile without requiring multiple visits for preparations and placement. If you are experiencing a dental emergency in the Metro Denver area, please call our office right away to schedule an appointment and learn how we can help.
Should You Call 911?
DeWitt Dental Associates is open from 9 am – 5 pm, Monday through Thursday. We are open from 9 am – 2 pm on Friday. We are closed on Saturday and Sunday. We make every effort to schedule emergency appointments on the day they occur, but we are not a 24/7 dental center and do not offer after-hour services.
If your dental emergency involves significant blood loss or is part of a larger medical emergency, the best course of action is to call 911. Emergency services for medical issues or severe dental trauma require swift and often comprehensive treatments. Our office is equipped to handle dental trauma only and should not be relied upon for more extensive or involved issues.
If your dental emergency is severe enough to demand direct attention right away, we recommend you contact the closest hospital for faster service.
The dentists at DeWitt Dental Associates will make every effort to see you as quickly as possible after your dental emergency. If you have suffered dental trauma and would like to schedule an emergency dental appointment, call us at 303-321-5656 and we will make every effort to schedule you in right away.
