Dentist Boulder CO

General dentistry and preventative dental care set up patients for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Routine dental visits and at-home oral hygiene are important ways to prevent further dental problems. Thoroughly cleaning the teeth and gums can prevent common problems like gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities.

Dental cleanings and at-home care can remove harmful bacteria that irritate the gum tissue and break down the tooth enamel. At Gunbarrel Dental Center, we provide general dental treatments that help patients maintain their smiles in Boulder, CO. Our team can keep patients healthy and improve their smiles with preventative care.

Dental Fillings

We can provide traditional and composite fillings for patients with cavities and tooth decay. Composite or white dental fillings are tooth-colored restorations. To ensure that white fillings stay in place, we prepare the tooth, apply and cure bonding fluid to the tooth’s structure, then place the filling. Composite dental fillings blend in with the color of natural teeth for a seamless look.

Amalgam fillings use a mixture of metal to fill cavities in the back of the mouth. Dr. Barone can safely remove and replace old, damaged, or cracked amalgam fillings. Although metal fillings can become damaged over time, they offer a more durable option for patients with damaged molars.

General Dentistry in Boulder, CO

Dr. Barone is an experienced general dentist and has achieved the status of Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. This is a testament to her dedication to providing the most comprehensive care possible for the oral health needs of our patients. Our general dental services include preventative treatments and dental tools that we offer so patients can receive high-quality dental care: 

Emergency Dentistry

If you have a dental emergency, call our dental office for care. Dental emergencies can be sudden, painful dental problems such as a knocked-out tooth, toothache, or broken dental restoration. 

Dental Sedation

Has it been some time since your last dental cleaning? Do you avoid the dentist because of anxiety or fear? Dr. Barone offers oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. She works with a local CNA to provide IV sedation. Patients with dental fear or anxiety benefit from dental sedation because it keeps them calm and relaxed. 

Family Dentistry

Our dental office provides dental care for the whole family. We offer extensive services, from dental sealants and fluoride treatment to dental restorations and cosmetic care. It is important to continue to care for the teeth and gums as you age.

Sleep Apnea

Do you often wake up gasping for air? Do you or your partner snore? You may have sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common type of sleep disorder that occurs when the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses and blocks the airway. Wearing a custom oral appliance can keep the airway open and prevent sleep apnea. 

Laser Dentistry

Dental lasers are tools that we use to treat patients with gum disease, tongue-tie, lip-tie, and cold sores. Laser dentistry provides a painless and efficient way to treat the soft tissues of the mouth. 

General Dental FAQs

Read answers to commonly asked questions about our general dentistry services: 

What are common dental emergencies?

Our dental office can treat patients with objects stuck between teeth, tooth pain, broken teeth, lost teeth, and broken or lost dental restorations. We can treat patients’ tooth pain and discomfort while creating new, custom restorations.

Do I have sleep apnea if I snore? 

Snoring is often a common indicator of sleep apnea. However, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. Contact our office if you also experience problems staying asleep, frequent headaches and migraines, and other sleep apnea symptoms. Our team can help you determine if you require a sleep apnea appliance. 

What do I do if I have dental anxiety?

We encourage patients to contact our office for accommodations. Patients can be accompanied into the exam room and bring their favorite music and headphones to listen to during treatment. We can also review dental sedation options if needed for more routine care.
