The 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!

If 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.
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.
