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!

Find Relief in Your Pain with Root Canal Therapy

October 15, 2014

489085765One thing that is very difficult to live with is pain. Whether the pain is slight or significant, it can really take a toll on your mind, body, and heart. One pain that is very difficult to go day in and day out with is tooth pain. The throbbing, constant pain can cripple someone, leaving them unable to eat, speak, or smile is confidence and pain-free. Though many people may be willing to write off the pain, there could be many reasons as to why your tooth is causing you discomfort, and it could be severe. Thankfully, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey is able to alleviate her patients of their tooth pain by offering root canal therapy at her Fort Collins, CO dental office.

Root canal therapy is often times needed when a cavity has not been handled or when there has been some sort of dental trauma. The pain is caused by bacteria making their way into the pulp of your tooth, and the pulp houses many nerves. When that happens, the result is relentless discomfort and pressure. Though root canal therapy has gotten a bad reputation over the years, with today’s modern technology, having root canal therapy performed is so comfortable, many patients doze off!

When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Lindsey will address the tooth by removing the pulp and the bacteria. She will then fill it with a bio-compatible material and cap it with a crown, all with the effort to ensure no other bacteria makes its way back into your tooth. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a healthier smile and free of pain! If you would like Dr. Lindsey to help alleviate your pain with root canal therapy, contact our office today!

Gum Disease and Your Heart

August 15, 2014

460469071Like many things in life, there are things that work in tandem in order to produce a smooth-running operation. Whether it is parts of a car or the components within a cell phone, you will often see several parts making up a whole, working system. Unfortunately, if one of those aspects is damaged, it has the potential to throw the entire system out of whack. The same theory can be applied to your smile, especially with your gums. Having beautiful, healthy gums is essential to having a healthy smile, and if your gums are compromised, it can have damaging effects. If you are suffering from gum disease, it has the ability to affect other areas of your body, especially your heart.

Gum disease occurs when harmful bacteria has made its way into the soft tissues of your mouth. If left to its own devices, the bacteria attacking your gums can enter your bloodstream, having a clear shot to your heart. Bacteria found in your mouth can also be found in your arteries, and they can slowly clog them while also decreasing the blood flow to your heart. Your body is built with natural defense mechanisms, and one of them is swelling. The bacteria found in your mouth have the capacity to cause your blood cells to swell, which essentially increases your risk of a blood clot.

Easy ways you can prevent the bacteria in your mouth from causing bodily damage is by taking the time out each day to brush and floss. Though it may seem simple, brushing and flossing are excellent ways to decreasing the amount of bacteria in your smile, making it less likely to enter your blood stream. Keeping this knowledge and tip in mind, you are sure to be on track for better oral and heart health!

Face Your Fears with Sedation Dentistry!

July 10, 2014

shutterstock_100163522Although many dentists would love for every person to enjoy going to the dentist, the reality is that many people feel quite the opposite. Having a fear of the dentist is a common fear many people face, and it can deter them from getting the much needed dental work they need done accomplished. Though it may seem like a helpless situation, there is a way Dr. Shiloh Lindsey can help those patients who have a fear of the dentist. By offering sedation dentistry to her patients, Dr. Lindsey is able to keep her patients cool, calm, and collected.

There are two ways Dr. Lindsey is able to help with your dental fears. The first one is with oral conscious sedation. With this option, our patients simply take medication at the predetermined time before your appointment, and they will be able to experience relaxation. You may become so relaxed that you will fall asleep during your appointment! Oral sedation is also good for patients who have a sensitive gag reflex or those who have neck and back problems, and therefore do not sit comfortably in a dentist’s chair. With this form of sedation, it is very important to have someone you trust drive you to and from your appointment, as the effects of the sedative may still be in effect after your dental work is performed.

The second option is nitrous oxide (laughing gas). With this, we simply put a mask over your face before your dental work commences, and you will inhale a nitrous oxide and oxygen blend, and with time, you will feel no pain or anxiety! Dr. Lindsey will be able to effectively work on your smile during this time, and you will not feel a thing! When your work is done, we simply remove the mask, and the effects of the sedation wear off! If you are curious as to how Dr. Shiloh Lindsey is able to help you get over your dental fears using sedation dentistry, contact our office today!

If you would like to schedule your appointment with Dr. Shiloh Lindsey, contact our Fort Collins, CO dental office. We are able to take care of all of your general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry needs. We are proud to serve patients from Fort Collins, Greeley, Longmont, Windsor, Loveland, and the surrounding communities.
