Cosmetic Dentistry Overview

If you have dedicated time and effort to getting or keeping your teeth and gums into the best health, you should also be able to show them off with a big smile. However, there are many people who actually hide their healthy grins because of cosmetic issues. Fortunately, Dr. Visger at Trail Ridge Dental in Longmont, CO offers our patients a nice array of cosmetic dentistry that can put the finishing touch on an otherwise perfect smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is not just about the look of the smile, but also about the function. Some of the services we offer will actually help with certain dental issues. For example, we offer teeth whitening and porcelain veneers as some of our most popular cosmetic treatments. However, veneers are excellent for chipped or cracked teeth and offer them support in addition to good looks!

Generally, cosmetic dentistry is offered to our patients once we are sure that any problems with their teeth have been addressed. Any fillings, cleanings, root canals or preventative care must be complete before we consider the looks of the smile.

We can then consider issues like wide gaps, chipped teeth, uneven teeth and darkly stained teeth. Though it may seem like these are impossible to easily remedy, we can do so through the use of porcelain veneers and teeth whitening.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made to fit your teeth. They can be applied to cover deeply set stains, make an uneven smile completely straight and even conceal broken teeth. It takes two visits for the process to be completed, but when finished, you will have a picture perfect smile.

Teeth whitening can also turn your smile into a showstopper. Once your dental health is assessed, we can work with you to choose the teeth whitening most suited to your needs. We offer in-office treatments that may lighten teeth by many levels in just one visit. We also have high quality at home products that take a bit longer but generate equally impressive results.

You should not hide that perfect smile and we have cosmetic dentistry to help with the most common concerns. From teeth whitening, crowns and porcelain veneers to aligners and implants, we can meet your needs.
