Let’s Talk About Your Smile

Let’s Talk About Your Smile

How do you like your smile? At The Fort Collins Dentist, we know it’s easy to be your own worst critic. But we also know lots of people don’t care for one aspect or another of their smile. We can improve any smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Maybe you have a tooth that’s been chipped since middle school, or a gap between your front teeth that’s been there since forever. Or maybe your smile has grown dull and yellow over the years.

Popular Procedures

There are cosmetic dentistry procedures that can address just about any smile issue you might have.

  • Porcelain veneers – Thin shells of medical-grade porcelain are designed to fit over the front side of your teeth. They’ll hide chips, cracks, gaps, and other flaws. They’re custom-made to your teeth, look totally natural, and leave you with a great new smile.
  • Bonding – Bonding is another way to correct any flaws in your teeth. A special material is bonded to a tooth, and shaped to create a strong structure that looks fabulous.
  • Crowns – Dental crowns are fitted over teeth that are discolored or in need of restoring due to damage or decay. They are long-lasting and strong.
  • Whitening – Teeth whitening is an easy, popular procedure that lightens the color of your teeth. The same whitening agents found in whitening toothpastes, but at much higher concentrations, bleach out years of stains and other discolorations and give you a dazzling smile.
  • Dental implants – Dental implants replace missing teeth. A titanium post is inserted into the jaw and fuses with the bone. An artificial tooth goes on top. Implants look and function like natural teeth.

At The Fort Collins Dentist, our cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile into something special. People from North Laramie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud also come to our practice for extractions, TMJ treatment, and crowns . Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Teeth Whitening: Do It Right

Fort Collins dentist teeth whitening

It’s not a news flash to say that we’d all like to have a beautiful smile, and the whitest teeth possible. At The Fort Collins Dentist, teeth whitening is one of the procedures we are asked about the most often.

The reality, of course, is that the color of teeth can vary greatly from one person to the next. In fact, many people have teeth that are yellowish or gray, or otherwise dull and off-color. And that probably accounts for the popularity of whitening toothpastes.

There’s a wide range of these toothpastes in any grocery store, along with whitening strips and similar products. They contain abrasives that polish the teeth, and help to dissolve stains.

Types of Stains

There are two kinds of stains on teeth: extrinsic and intrinsic.

  • Extrinsic Stains: Extrinsic stains are surface stains. We’re all vulnerable to them, because they’re the type of teeth stains that come from things like coffee, cola, and other beverages. Tobacco is also a major staining agent, whether it’s smoked or chewed.
  • Intrinsic Stains: These are stains that are within the enamel of the tooth itself. They are often caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline.

What To Do?

Whitening products from the store can be effective. But they do not have the whitening power of professional teeth whitening. One of the major drawbacks of whitening toothpaste is that the results don’t usually last. They also don’t whiten teeth more than a shade or so, and some patients report sensitivity after using them.

At The Fort Collins Dentist, our teeth whitening can whiten your teeth up to eight shades, leaving you with a brilliant white smile. People from North Laramie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud come to our office for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry services. Contact us today!

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry

Fort Collins Cosmetic Dentistry

This post from The Fort Collins Dentist describes the ways that general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry are different.

Family dentistry, also called general dentistry, is dedicated to preventing and treating oral diseases such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, like a cavity between two teeth, a general dentist will establish the best way to restore the tooth involved.

Cosmetic dentists offer elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Available procedures include teeth whitening, dental implants, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns.

Many dentists provide both general and cosmetic dentistry. In some cases there is some overlap. For example, if a patient comes in after receiving an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth must be restored to prevent decay. The tooth is also less structurally sound, so it is vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile.

At The Fort Collins Dentist we want our patients to have healthy smiles that look great! General dentistry achieves the first goal, and cosmetic dentistry the second. Find out why patients from North Laramie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud trust us with their smiles. Contact us today!

3 Smart Smile Solutions

Aesthetic Dental Transformations in Fort Collins

In this article from The Fort Collins Dentist, we take a look at three procedures often used in cosmetic dentistry.

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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 North Laramie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud also come to our practice for complete general dentistry. Contact us today!

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment

Fort Collins Pediatric Dentistry

If your teeth have grown yellow and dull over the years, professional teeth whitening from The Fort Collins Dentist can restore the natural beauty of your smile, and take years off your appearance.

Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains

Tooth enamel, while one of the toughest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth bring about staining and discoloration.

There are plenty of toothpastes on the market that claim to whiten teeth, but their effectiveness has its limitations. You have probably noticed this already.

Powerful Peroxide

Professional-grade teeth whitening uses powerful peroxide that can whiten teeth up to ten shades. It is the safest, most convenient way to achieve a fabulous white smile.

Having your teeth whitened professionally can be a huge boost for your self-confidence. You’ll look younger, and find it easier to make a positive impression on other people.

To schedule a teeth whitening appointment, please call us at The Fort Collins Dentist. Patients from North Larmie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud also come to us for complete restorative dentistry. Call today!

Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains

Fort Collins Teeth Bleaching

One of the most common requests we get at The Fort Collins Dentist is for teeth whitening, one of our cosmetic dentistry services.

Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. Our teeth tend to grow dull or get stained as the years go by: it’s just an unfortunate fact of life.

There are three types of stains on teeth:

  • Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth. They’re the easiest to remove, and are caused by things like coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the aging process.
  • Intrinsic stains form beneath a tooth’s enamel. They can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. They may be the result of trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or other factors.
  • Combination are teeth with both extrinsic and extrinsic stains.

We have two options: in-office whitening and at-home whitening. Our in-office whitening takes about two hours to complete, and leaves you with a brilliant, dazzling smile. The at-home whitening also delivers fantastic results, but lets you proceed at your own pace. Both of them surpass any over-the-counter whitening products.

At The Fort Collins Dentist we’ve improved countless smiles with teeth whitening. Patients from North Larmie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud also come to our office for dental implants and much more. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
