Cosmetic Dentistry – Fort Collins, CO
Creating Improved, Beautiful Smiles That Last
Sometimes, even healthy smiles don’t look as beautiful as we’d like them to be. Over time, our teeth can accumulate all kinds of frustrating visual flaws, from chips and cracks to stains and discoloration. Here at Aspen Dental Care, our cosmetic dentist in Fort Collins, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey, and her team would love to help you overcome these issues and achieve the look of your dreams with the help of cosmetic dentistry! We’ll work closely with you to develop a customized smile makeover plan that creates gorgeous results in a way that fits your unique preferences, time commitment, and budget.
Smart Moves Clear Braces
Achieving straighter teeth can benefit both your oral health and the aesthetic value of your smile, but many patients are still hesitant to undergo orthodontic treatment. This is understandable – after all, the last thing professional adults want is to spend years wearing noticeable metal braces. Here at Aspen Dental Care, we offer a more sophisticated, seamless alternative in Smart Moves Clear Braces. Removable and non-invasive, these virtually invisible aligners fit snugly over your teeth and help move them into their ideal position. Better yet, they allow you to still enjoy your favorite foods and brush and floss just like normal.

Sometimes, patients face so many cosmetic dental issues that receiving treatment for all of them can be a daunting process. With the transformative power of veneers, Dr. Lindsey can give both individual teeth and whole smiles a complete do-over instead! Made from wafer-thin, lifelike dental porcelain, veneers are precisely designed and customized to reflect the patient’s ideal smile – this process can even include changing the shape, size, and length of certain teeth to more aesthetically pleasing levels. Once your new veneer is created and we’ve prepared your natural teeth for placement, we’ll simply place it over your existing smile, creating a new, polished look you’ll be proud to show off to the world.

If you’re tired of the dingy, yellowish stains and discoloration that plague your teeth, it might be time to consider teeth whitening. This safe and effective treatment can improve your smile and have you seeing dazzling white teeth in no time at all. At Aspen Dental Care, you can whiten your teeth your way. From in-office teeth whitening to at-home customized bleaching trays to whitening toothpaste suggestions, we’ve got you covered. Whether it takes an hour or a few weeks depends on your individual wants and needs, but rest assured, you’ll receive the same, beautiful, natural results.
Minor cosmetic flaws can be frustrating and problematic, especially when trying to determine the best way to fix them. Luckily, cosmetic bonding is the ideal solution for handling chipped or misaligned teeth. These minor imperfections are easily remedied thanks to a tooth-colored composite resin that is matched to your natural tooth’s color. Not only will it blend it perfectly, but it will seal off the tooth from any future damage. In one visit to our office, you take your smile from imperfect to perfect with this less invasive, more cost-effective cosmetic solution.
The Importance of Getting the Smile You Love
- Increased confidence: By fixing these minor flaws and imperfections, you will have renewed confidence. Whether it’s preparing for a job interview or going on a date, you’ll feel good about your new and improved smile.
- Improved oral health: Depending on your dental needs, cosmetic treatments can improve your oral health. From chipped teeth that can damage other, natural teeth, or gaps that can trap food and cause tooth decay, cosmetic solutions can keep your oral health in check.
- More money in your wallet: If you want to keep from spending more time than necessary in the dentist chair, cosmetic dentistry can save you time and money in the long run. If your teeth are damaged and can be fixed with veneers or cosmetic bonding, why not let a dentist in Fort Collins fix your smile now and save from potential damage or infection in the future?

Can my teen benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

Depending on their concerns, they may need to have all their permanent teeth before moving forward with any elective treatments. We’ll examine their teeth to implement a personalized strategy to give them the confident smile they deserve.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
There isn’t a set fee for cosmetic dentistry because the price is based on your needs. There are several factors that influence the cost, like the type of procedure. We’ll provide you with a custom estimate during your consultation and explain the fees associated with your plan. We will help you find the solutions you need to achieve your dream smile without draining your wallet, like using third-party financing.
Can I use my dental insurance to pay for cosmetic dentistry?
Unfortunately, most dental plans won’t cover cosmetic treatments because they are considered elective; however, there are some exceptions. Some cosmetic procedures also offer restorative benefits. As a result, a procedure may be covered under your insurance plan if it’s necessary for your oral health, like dental bonding. If applicable, a member of our team will work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the necessary forms to offset the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.
