How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Boost Your Self-Confidence

How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Boost Your Self-Confidence

Not everyone is happy with the appearance of their teeth. Many patients feel self-conscious about their dental issues and try to hide their smiles whenever possible.


Cosmetic dentistry can help you overcome these feelings and feel great about your appearance. This blog details how we can help you regain self-confidence and show the world your bright, new smile.

How Cosmetic Procedures Can Help You Shine

At Fort Collins Dental Center, we offer several procedures that can boost your oral health while improving your appearance:

Restorative Dentistry

Tooth-colored composite fillings are more aesthetically appealing than metal amalgam, especially for front teeth. Repairing teeth with composite resin also makes them stronger than before.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are unique because they have a dual purpose: cosmetic and restorative. Crowns can cover discolored, broken, or decayed teeth with an attractive cap matching your existing teeth.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays can repair teeth and improve their appearance. They are similar to crowns but can be employed when the tooth is too damaged for a filling. However, they have enough structure not to need a crown.


Patients with a gap in their smile often feel uncomfortable with their appearance. A dental bridge can provide a relatively fast, simple solution to the problem of a missing tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a durable, attractive solution to the problem of missing teeth. Dental implants replace the crown and root of a missing or damaged tooth. They improve your appearance and help your oral health by eliminating spaces where food and plaque collect. Plaque buildup is unsightly and causes tooth decay and gum disease.


Invisalign is perfect for busy adults and older teens who do not want to draw undue attention to their orthodontic care. Discreet, comfortable plastic aligners gradually move your teeth into ideal positions. The process is simple, comfortable, and, in most cases, faster than traditional braces. Invisalign also improves oral health since straighter teeth are easier to keep clean.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

How long does it take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign?

Invisalign's treatment speed is one of its standout features. Typically, Invisalign takes between 12 and 18 months to work, compared to 18 months to three years for braces.

Does dental insurance cover dental implants?

Insurance may cover parts of the implant process, like tooth extraction and the creation of the dental crown. If your tooth incurred damage in an accident, you will more likely be able to receive insurance coverage.
