Lindsey and the entire Aspen Dental Care team are experienced and skilled in the treatment of a wide variety of oral health concerns, but more importantly, we focus on education patients about preventive dentistry in our office and when they return home.

A goal that many people may think is hard to achieve is an impeccable smile. Having a smile that you feel as though you are settling for can do harm to your self-esteem, as well as the way you interact with the people around you. Life has a way of leaving evidence of its daily rigors, whether it is a scratch on a car or the yellowing of pages, and unfortunately your smile is no different. A chip here and a crack there can really take its toll on your smile over the years, and you may feel as though there is nothing you can do. Fortunately, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey is able to erase the flaws in your smile using cosmetic bonding at her Fort Collins, CO dental office.
One of the wonderful things about cosmetic bonding is the fact that it is able to completely change the way your smile looks in a single appointment! If your smile is chipped, cracked, or slightly misaligned, cosmetic bonding is able to completely erase it, only revealing the smile you have always wanted. Made of composite resin, we will be able to make the bonding match your natural tooth color exactly, making sure your new smile looks as natural as possible
Dr. Lindsey will apply the mixture onto your smile and begin to sculpt it. When the desired shape has been reached, she will polish it, ensuring it shines bright! Being a wonderful alternative to porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding lasts up to ten years with proper care. It is also stain resistant, meaning your smile will always be bright and ready to show off!

Many 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.
At Aspen Dental Care, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey provides complete family and cosmetic dental care from her Ft. Collins dental office. Give us a call to schedule your next appointment today.

If 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.
