New to Loveland and I was extremely pleased with my experience at Rocky Mountain Smiles.  My teeth are not “perfect” and so I chose this practice because it was private and not corporate, and could assist me with whatever my dental needs are. The staff was extremely thorough and professional and provided me with a wealth of information on preventative care. The facility is beautiful. I have recommended this practice to family and friends!” – Sharon S., Five Stars, Google Reviews

We’ll begin today’s blog with a brief overview of our cosmetic dental services before answering some frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry from a more general standpoint. Let’s dive in!

The Top Cosmetic Dentist In Loveland

It’s no secret that having straight, white teeth and a brilliant smile can impact far more than your oral health; it can help your self-esteem and confidence in a unique way. Conversely, if you are self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, you might cover your mouth when smiling, be afraid to laugh gregariously, or just be preoccupied with how other people perceive the way you look while smiling or eating. 

If the latter portion above describes you to any degree, then cosmetic dentistry just might be for you. Smiling not only directly improves your mood, but has also been clinically shown to boost your immune system and reduce stress. There are a plethora of health benefits you stand to gain from getting the cosmetic dental treatment you need, so let’s discuss what we are able to offer you more specifically below.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Now that we’ve covered the essentials of our cosmetic dentistry services, we’ll be addressing some frequently asked questions regarding teeth whitening, veneers, and other elements of cosmetic dentistry.

Q: Are there any side effects to professional teeth whitening?

A: When you receive professional teeth whitening from Rocky Mountain Smiles, we take protective measures to make sure you don’t experience discomfort during the procedure. Usually, your dentist will use a rubber shield or protective gel to ensure that the bleaching agents do not affect gum tissue at all. What’s more, our bleaching agents are approved for use by the American Dental Association, which should give you peace of mind. 

Q: Are dental veneers right for me?

A: There are several different factors you should consider when discussing the option of dental veneers with your dentist. For one, you should think about your goals; what problem are you trying to address, and will dental veneers be a part of that solution? Further, you should consider the impact of your lifestyle choices when thinking about dental veneers. Do you teeth grind? If so, your veneers might be at a higher risk of chipping or cracking. These are just a few of the many considerations you can discuss with your Loveland dentist, Dr. Bigus, when you consult with us at Rocky Mountain Smiles.

Q: How can I tell if I am choosing the right cosmetic dentist for my needs?

A: A lot depends on how comfortable you feel with your dentist, although that is not exclusive to cosmetic dentistry by any means. When it comes to the specific procedure you are considering, make sure your cosmetic dentist has experience performing said treatment. You shouldn’t feel uncomfortable asking for before-and-after photos of patients who they’ve performed that treatment on in the past.
