In this article from The Fort Collins Dentist, we take a look at three procedures often used in cosmetic dentistry.
- Dental Implants: Implants are transforming dentistry. For most patients, a dental implant is the prime solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal – usually titanium – rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post. When the final crown is placed, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth in function and appearance.
- Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic. We attach them to the front of your teeth to cover chips or cracks, gaps, and other imperfections. they leave you with a fantastic smile!
- Tooth Whitening: If you had tooth decay in the past, you may notice staining on your teeth. Professional whitening can lighten your teeth by several shades, significantly improving your smile without the need for an invasive procedure.
At The Fort Collins Dentist, we use cosmetic dentistry to improve the smiles of patients every day. People from Loveland, Timnath, Wellington, and Windsor also come to our practice for complete general dentistry. Contact us today!
