From routine treatment such as dental crowns and bridges, to full mouth rehabilitation involving dental implants.
Dr. Chen is both a general dentist and prosthodontist, so you and your family can see him for all of your dental needs.

We also provide emergency services, general dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry.

We understand that people often feel anxious about going to the dentist because they are never sure what they can expect. Dr. Chen and his team do what they can to eliminate this source of anxiety. We never want our patients to feel uncomfortable or have unanswered questions. We do everything we can to explain your treatment options to enable our patients to make informed decisions for themselves.
Patient education is critical to the way our practice is run. Dr. Chen and the entire staff are happy to go over recommendations and costs so you know exactly what to expect. There is nothing confusing about making educated decisions!
Our mission to share information, treat patients like family, be professional in all we do, and create long-lasting restorations. Basically, we want our patients to be healthy while being treated the way we would like to be treated.
At Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics, we stay current with the latest in dental technology at our South Aurora dental practice. Not only does enable Dr. Chen to make better, earlier, and more accurate diagnoses, but it goes a long way in making our patients’ visits as comfortable as possible. Our modern office includes E4D technology for same-day dental crowns, and intraoral camera, digital radiographs, and panoramic x-rays, as well as nitrous oxide and electric handpieces.
We believe that a healthy smile should also be a beautiful smile, so we provide the cosmetic dentistry our Aurora, CO patients need to achieve just that. If you are not happy with the way your smile looks, we invite you to give us a call to speak with Dr. Chen about the following cosmetic dentistry options:
Dr. Chen is pleased to work with patients to provide dental implants for tooth replacement at our Aurora, CO dental office. This reliable, secure option to replace one missing tooth or a mouthful offers patients the form and function that is closest to their natural teeth.
Although Dr. Chen is trained for implant surgery, he has chosen not to place dental implants. Despite his additional training as a prosthodontist, he believes that the extra three to six years of schooling completed by periodontists and oral surgeons make them better qualified to perform this procedure. Dr. Chen wants only the highest-quality results for his patients, so he has established relationships with great dental surgeons in the Aurora, CO area.
His patients will be in good hands until they return to Dr. Chen for the prosthetic portion of the implant—the dental crown—to be placed.
If you are considering dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth, you should know that almost anyone who has sufficient periodontal bone is a candidate for dental implants. The best way to find out if implants are a good option for you is to come into our office for a consultation. Dr. Chen will examine you to find out if dental implants are appropriate.
Even if you are not currently a candidate, procedures are available to improve your oral health so you could be a candidate in the future. Contact our South Aurora dentist office today if you have any more questions.
Yes. Dr. Chen believes that All-on-4 is a good way for his denture-wearing Aurora, CO patients to get better stability. All-on-4 combines the best of the two most popular tooth replacement options: dental implants and dentures. With All-on-4, patients can have their denture attached to four dental implants placed in the mouth. This is advantageous for patients who are missing a complete upper or lower, so they do not have to have a dental implant placed for each tooth.
This option is also more economical for patients because there are fewer implants to place into the jawbone.
Unlike with traditional dentures, the implants placed into the jawbone will help to preserve bone density. Traditional dentures do nothing to protect the jawbone, so denture-wearers tend to get a sunken-in look to their face over the years that can alter their appearance and make them appear older.
Just give us a call to make an appointment. Whether you are seeing us for a routine examination and cleaning, or if you are interested in dental implants or cosmetic dentistry, we can help you achieve a smile you are happy about. Call Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics. We look forward to providing you with the best in quality dental care in South Aurora, CO.
