Smile at the New Year with Porcelain Veneers in Ft. Collins, CO

January 22, 2015

100047604The New Year has only begun, so there’s time to make one more resolution—smile more! That’s right. Your smile isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the people around you, too. So why not give them your best and brightest smile with porcelain veneers from Aspen Dental Care in Ft. Collins, CO. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and her staff have improved or repaired the smiles of many patients and they can do the same for you.

Your smile may be less than you desire for a variety of reasons:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Teeth that are chipped
  • Fractured teeth
  • Teeth that are slightly misaligned or misshapen
  • Teeth that have irregular gaps in between them

Whatever the reason, you don’t need to accept your smile as it is. Porcelain veneers can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.

Porcelain Veneers for You

When you come to Dr. Lindsey for porcelain veneers, the first thing she’ll do is thoroughly examine your overall oral health and make sure you don’t need any restorative treatment before the veneer procedure. The two of you will discuss your vision of a beautiful smile with consideration given to your mouth and facial features.

Then, the procedure will begin and will usually be completed in a couple of appointments. First, we’ll cover your lips and gums with a shield for protection. Dr. Shiloh will prep the teeth receiving veneers by first applying a gentle abrasive that makes the teeth’s surface better able to hold the veneers. Furthermore, this ensures that the veneers will lay flush with your other teeth.

You’ll wear temporaries while your custom-designed, color matched porcelain veneers are created in a cosmetic dental lab. When they’re ready, you’ll return to Aspen Dental Care for Dr. Lindsey to apply the veneers to your teeth. She will trim and polish your new veneers until they look like your real teeth—only better!

Brighten Your Smile for the New Year with Professional Teeth Whitening from Dr. Lindsey in Ft. Collins, CO

December 22, 2014

99452669Could your smile be any brighter, or whiter? It often seems like, no matter how diligently we brush and floss, we just can’t protect our teeth from staining and discoloration. In many respects, this is true. Our teeth naturally change color over time. Additionally, there are many acidic foods in our daily diets that can change the color of our teeth. While this struggle can be frustrating, there are reliable solutions available. Ultimately, teeth whitening results depend upon your natural tooth color, how stubborn your stains and discoloration have become, and which treatment method you choose. To make an informed decision, schedule a teeth whitening consultation appointment with Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and Aspen Dental Care today. Dr. Lindsey is a trusted Ft. Collins cosmetic and restorative dentist, who can help you find the teeth whitening solution that works best for your unique situation. Aspen Dental Care proudly serves patients throughout Ft. Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland, and the surrounding communities.

Why do teeth change color?

The internal layers of our teeth naturally darken as we age. Behavioral factors like tobacco use and drinking coffee, soda, tea or wine can also cause staining. Taking certain medications and antibiotics can discolor our teeth as well.

What about teeth whitening toothpastes?

Teeth whitening toothpastes don’t actually whiten your enamel. They contain mild abrasives, but no bleaching agents, so they can only polish away shallow surface stains. If you’re seeking a reliable teeth whitening method, teeth whitening toothpastes are not the best option.

Do over-the-counter teeth whitening products really work?

Over-the- counter products can come as whitening gels, strips, rinses, or trays. Though they contain bleaching agents to whiten teeth, they are heavily diluted. Therefore it can take several weeks of daily use before you see any changes at all. There is also a high risk of gum irritation when you expose your teeth to these bleaching agents for prolonged periods. As a rule of thumb, yellowed enamel responds well to whitening, while brownish-colored teeth do not. Gray stains caused by smoking, antibiotics, or dental fluorosis (ingestion of too much fluoride), may need to be addressed with cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers treatments. Dr. Lindsey can help you make this determination.

Ft. Collins Teeth Whitening Appointments

Professional tooth whitening is the most consistently successful teeth whitening method. With professional teeth whitening you can avoid tooth sensitivity and damage to the roots from DIY bleaching mistakes. Dr. Lindsey can also better predict when you may have problems with the procedure. Don’t take a chance with unproven teeth whitening methods.

Porcelain Veneers are a Great Cosmetic Dentistry Solution for Ft. Collins Patients

October 17, 2013

porcelain veneersIf you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, there’s no need to despair. There are a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments available that can change the way your smile looks, such as porcelain veneers. If you want a new smile without undergoing extensive dental work, this may be the right choice for you.

For your first appointment, your dentist will examine your smile and go over what you wish that your smile will look like after treatment. Things such as shape and color will be discussed. Measurements and photographs will be taken to help with the planning and designing process. Then, your dentist will carefully remove a thin layer of your tooth enamel to prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers. Impressions of your teeth will be taken and used to craft your veneers. You’ll be fitted with temporary veneers.

Once your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to the office where your temporary veneers will be removed and replaced with your permanent veneers. All chips, cracks, gaps, stains, and other smile flaws will now be hidden by the high-quality, thin layer of porcelain that is now affixed to your teeth. This is a great way to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry procedure that can have a big impact on the appearance of your smile. If you’re unhappy with your smile and have numerous smile concerns or flaws, ask your dentist if this could be right for you.

Cosmetic Bonding for Appealing Smiles in Ft. Collins

September 24, 2013

cosmetic bondingMany people visit their dentist to learn more about the options they have to improve the appearance of their smile. If you have some minor smile concerns and don’t want to commit to a lot of dental work, cosmetic bonding may be a great choice to help improve the appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic bonding is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that is best used when you have one or a few teeth that need attention. If you have a tooth or a few teeth that are chipped, cracked or slightly misaligned, this can be a great alternative to porcelain veneers. Your dentist will apply composite resin to your tooth that has been carefully color matched to the rest of your teeth. The resin will be shaped into place and then hardened with a special curing light. Your dentist will complete the procedure by sculpting and polishing your tooth.

While this is a quick and simple method to improve the appearance of your smile, it’s not the longest-lasting. Usually it only lasts five to 10 years, provided you’re taking proper care of your smile. Also, the resin won’t discolor the same as your natural tooth, so you may need teeth whitening to keep the color of your smile consistent. Despite these slight drawbacks, cosmetic bonding is still a great smile solution that can be the right choice for your smile. Call your dentist to learn more and see if this is the right solution for your smile.

Improve Your Smile’s Appearance With Cosmetic Dentistry

May 21, 2013

cosmetic dentistryIf you’re not satisfied with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry could be a great solution. Cosmetic dentistry is a term used to describe any dental procedure that improves the appearance of your teeth.

Some typical cosmetic dentistry treatments include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and cosmetic bonding. Your dentist will start by analyzing your smile and come up with the right treatment or treatment plan to help your smile achieve its full potential.

Teeth whitening is a great choice if your teeth have become stained or yellowed over time. There are a variety of take-home and in-office whitening treatments available to improve your smile. You can see noticeable results immediately after treatment.

Porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding both help to cover chips, cracks and gaps in your smile. Cosmetic bonding doesn’t last as long but is a more affordable solution. A special composite resin will be applied to your teeth and shaped to cover imperfections and resemble natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of high quality dental porcelain that are attached to the front of your teeth. They require some removal of tooth structure, and are custom crafted to resemble natural teeth. Since both methods attach to the front of your existing teeth, they allow your dentist to change the appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is a great choice to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Call your Ft. Collins dentist today to learn more and see how the appearance of your smile can be improved. There’s no reason why you can’t have the beautiful smile of your dreams.

Teeth Whitening—Starting the Year with a Sparkling Smile

March 7, 2013

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry — Tags: , , — drlindsey @ 9:37 pm

teeth whiteningWe always want to make a good impression, but if your teeth are yellowed, you could be worried about the impression you’re making. Ensure that the rest of this year will be a great one, and ask your dentist about teeth whitening. It’s still early in 2013, so there’s no reason why this can’t be the year that you have a sparkling white smile.

Your teeth become yellowed over time, for a variety of reasons. Alcohol, coffee, tea, tobacco, and other foods could cause your teeth to become yellowed over time. Also, medications including tetracycline, too much fluoride, and even previous dental work can stain your teeth.

There are a variety of teeth whitening options to fit your smile needs. There are over the counter whitening treatment and whitening toothpastes, but many patients don’t see the results they’re wanting because methods aren’t as effective as the treatments your dentist can provide

Your dentist offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening solutions. With an in-office teeth whitening solution, you’ll leave our office in about one hour with dramatically whiter teeth. Your dentist will place a rubber dam around your gums to protect them from the bleaching solution and activate it, often with a laser. This is a fast, convenient way to whiten your teeth. You can even come in on your lunch break.

For at-home teeth whitening, your dentist can create custom bleaching trays so you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. Fill the trays with a professional bleaching solution and wear as directed. You’ll see results right away, but after about two weeks you’ll see whiter teeth.

If you think teeth whitening could be what your smile has been waiting for, call your dentist to learn more and see if it could be right for you. With a variety of teeth whitening options available, there’s no reason why you can’t have a beautiful, white set of teeth.
