Veneers Transform Smiles

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Boulder County Smiles In Lafayette

At Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO, we use cosmetic dentistry to transform smiles. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures are porcelain veneers.

Have you ever wished you could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as quick and easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently attached to your natural teeth.

At Boulder County Smiles, veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures in complete smile makeovers. Because they can fix cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes called instant orthodontics.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be produced in any size or shape.

Are veneers strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to Gordon West. Dr. West will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look great!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we have a Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

What’s The Difference Between An Inlay And An Onlay?

tooth colored fillings Lafayette

This post from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO is about inlays and onlays.

If you have tooth sensitivity or pain when you chew with your back teeth, the surfaces may be damaged. One option for restoration is the use of an inlay or onlay made of metal, composite resin, or porcelain.

Inlays are very strong and shaped to precisely fit a hole in a damaged tooth. The choice of an inlay or onlay depends on how much decay and tooth loss has transpired.

An inlay resembles a filling and fills a small part of the tooth, while an onlay covers one or more of the cusps on the top of the tooth. In other words, an inlay fills a hole without changing the shape of the tooth, while an onlay builds up the tooth surface to restore its previous dimension.

The procedure begins with a extensive evaluation, oral x-ray, and an impression. The damaged area will be removed and then the inlay or onlay will be formed to accurately fit your tooth and bite. While it is being made, your tooth will have a temporary restoration piece to cover and safeguard the vulnerable area.

Finally, the inlay or onlay will be placed and permanently bonded to the tooth. Since the procedure requires removal of damaged tooth material, restoration fabrication at the lab, and the placement on the tooth, it will take a few appointments to carry out the process.

Inlays and onlays guard the tooth from further damage, provide natural function, and are durable and inconspicuous.

At Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO, we have restored countless smiles with inlays and onlays. Our services include dental implants, and general and family dentistry. Scheduler an appointment with us today.

Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

Broomfield cosmetic smile makeover

A question from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO: have you ever taken an unanticipated trip to the grocery store looking completely unkempt? You know: one of those in-a-rush trips for an emergency item – say cough medicine or a must-have poster board for your child’s school assignment?

On such an occasion you will inevitably bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your sloppy sweatpants and stained T-shirt? Or worse yet, pajamas.

Our outward appearance influences the way we feel inside. In professional situations, don’t you feel more self-confident when you are wearing flattering, pulled-together business clothes? Aren’t you more likely to vocalize your opinion when you are comfortable in your own skin?

When encountering someone for the first time, don’t you feel better when you are having a good hair day or have cleared up a recent bout of acne? Blind dates are brutal when you don’t feel at the top of your game.

Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost self-esteem for most folks. But do you know what people notice before any of these characteristics? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Multiple studies have shown that dazzling teeth and eyes immediately capture attention. Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts. But stunning smiles are within reach because at Boulder County Smiles, we can work miracles with cosmetic dentistry.

With specialized training, finely honed skills, modern equipment, and quality lab services, we can turn unattractive smiles into stunning first-impressions using a variety of state-of-the-art cosmetic dental procedures. Boulder County Smiles patients who have received cosmetic dental smile makeovers report feeling more confident, more attractive, more effective at work, and happier in their relationships. Some even say that they take more risks and observe more success.

If you are not satisfied with your smile, you are probably not aware of the influence it has had on your confidence and self-image. Don’t hide behind an unattractive smile any longer. Call Boulder County Smiles. We offer cosmetic dentistry, procedures like dental implants, and many other services. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

Boulder County cosmetic dental and tooth implants

A well-designed veneer from Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO does not make your tooth look larger – unless you want it to. A veneer can correct many cosmetic dental problems and is a minimally invasive restoration. During the placement of some porcelain veneers, an extremely thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth.

If you have teeth with damage, discoloration, an irregular shape or minimal to moderate misalignment, you have several dental remedies to choose from. Don’t worry if you feel that veneers seem to have more cons than pros for you. You have alternative options. We can analyze your smile, your needs, and your goals to develop a perfect plan.

Boulder County Smiles offers the highest standard of dental care and the full spectrum of vital services including:

dental crowns
teeth whitening
sedation dentistry
Invisalign clear braces
prepless veneers

Clear Aligners: Almost Invisible

Clear braces are an increasingly popular option in orthodontics. They produce excellent results, but are so discreet that some people call them invisible. At Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO, we offer MTM clear braces.

Unlike traditional metal braces, clear braces have no wires, brackets or rubber bands. They are so subtle that people standing just a few feet away from you may not realize you’re wearing them.

They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for this style of braces is “aligner.” They are a customized series of trays made of clear plastic that are worn over your teeth. After about two weeks, you receive the next in the series. And in as little as a year’s time, your teeth are brought into alignment.

One of the things that people like best about clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.

At Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette CO, we offer MTM clear braces. To find out whether they are right for you, schedule a consultation. We also offer dental implants, and general and family dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.
