At our dental office in Glendale, Colorado, Hakala Family Dentistry provides general dental services to patients of all ages. Dr. Kate Hakala was a dental hygienist in general and periodontal dental offices and has been a dentist for over 30 years, and our hygienist Suzi also has a great deal of experience, working first as a dental assistant before becoming a hygienist.
For child patients from children at age 2 to adults at 102, we provide preventive comprehensive preventive dental care. “Dental Checkup” appointments are tailored to each individual patient’s needs and can include examining for decay, gum disease, and bite problems. Children receive sealants to prevent decay and routine screening for orthodontic problems. Adults can receive prophylaxis “cleanings” or periodontal cleanings as needed.
We provide a variety of tooth-colored fillings, veneers, crowns, and bridges for improving your smile! We also provide gold crowns when patients request them, and restore implants with crowns and bridges. Dr. Kate takes classes to learn about all of the improvements in dental materials, and we offer a variety of ways to repair your teeth. Call us if you would like to know your options for fillings, veneers, and crowns.
At our Denver area dental office, we provide tooth whitening or “bleaching”, cosmetic bonding and veneers. We are happy to discuss cosmetic dental options with you.
For our patients who grind their teeth, have TMJ discomfort, or have a lot of fillings and crowns, we often provide bite guards. We are seeing a great number of cracked and broken teeth, as well as chipped crowns, and believe that bite guards help prevent these conditions.
Teeth sometimes need to be removed because of gum disease, decay, or because they are cracked and broken. Dr. Kate can extract your tooth and discuss options for replacement, including implants, crowns, and partial or full dentures.
