Maybe your child is experiencing dental decay, developmental concerns, or a serious injury to one or more teeth. When these situations arise, Dr. Layne Benzley is here to help, providing much-needed support and restorative dentistry.

Whatever their needs are, parents can rest assured that our team will treat their little ones with all the gentleness, warmth, and comfort they need throughout the treatment process. Our Castle Rock, CO office welcomes new patients from all over The Meadows and other nearby neighborhoods. Contact us today to schedule a first visit!
Dental crowns are designed to fit over an entire individual tooth, essentially covering its natural shape and protecting it while also providing a durable, lifelike replacement. There are a wide variety of reasons why our team at Castle Rock Smiles may recommend that your child has a customized dental crown placed, including:
- Badly decayed tooth that’s too severe for a filling to treat
- Fractured tooth
- Weakened tooth that needs additional support
- Teeth with defective enamel
- Restoring a tooth treated with a pulpotomy
Dr. Benzley offers traditional stainless steel crowns as well as tooth colored Zirconia crowns. Tooth colored crowns are always used for front teeth, but are also available for back teeth under appropriate condition.
Fillings are a tried-and-true cornerstone of restorative care, allowing our team to treat areas of decay quickly and comfortably. Composite resin, or tooth-colored fillings, are typically used in our office, they are designed to match the natural shade of the patient’s teeth smile and provide esthetic restorations. Amalgam, or silver, fillings are also available if desired or warranted by the clinical situation.
