How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me?

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me?Are you tired of living with crooked teeth but don’t know what to do about it?  Maybe you’re too embarrassed to smile or laugh or eat in public? Maybe you think traditional metal braces are the only method available to straighten your crooked teeth.

But you don’t need to go on worrying about your crooked or improperly spaced teeth any longer. Meet with an Integrated Dental Arts dentist in Greeley, CO or your area dentist today to discuss what cosmetic dentistry can do to help you. Fixing your crooked teeth might be easier than you think.

While traditional metal braces can correct crooked teeth no matter what age you are, most adults don’t want to go through that process for what might be the second time in their lives. Cosmetic dentists and patients usually prefer other options such as porcelain dental veneers, invisible braces or dental bonding over traditional orthodontic treatment.

Integrated Dental Arts, a respected dental provider of Greeley, CO would like to present your tooth-straightening options.


Dental veneers are fastened on top of crooked teeth, straightening your smile quickly and with relatively painlessly. Some dentists even consider porcelain veneers to be a suitable alternative to invisible clear braces (detailed below) depending on how much correction is needed.  Your dentist will be able to determine if porcelain veneers or invisible braces are the best solution for you. As they are constructed of porcelain, veneers resist staining and discoloration and can last a long time — possibly even 2 decades.

Invisible Braces

Most people have heard about invisible braces and for good reason.  This solution for straightening and spacing crooked and crowded teeth is quickly replacing traditional braces as the primary means of straightening teeth. Clear braces, custom-fitted to your mouth, will gradually move your teeth where they need to go regardless of whether you are a teen or a full-grown adult. The translucent aligners are meant to be worn at least 22 hours a day but can be removed for eating and oral hygiene and are easily cleaned.

Invisible braces are usually able to produce the desired results in six months to two years.  The exact length of time you will need for improvement will depend on several factors including the severity of your crooked teeth to whether or not your bite needs adjusting.  Your Integrated Dental Arts dentist will be able to give you the specifics for your case. To most patients, the best part of invisible braces is that nobody will be able to tell you are wearing them.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a painless means of correcting uneven or crooked teeth.  Your dentist applies a composite resin to the front surface of the damaged tooth or teeth.  Bonding, also referred to as cosmetic bonding, is very effective in hiding those annoying gaps between teeth, reshaping teeth and even lightening dark or yellowed teeth.

Although it may be surprising, cosmetic bonding is actually only a minimally invasive procedure.  There is no need for needles or anesthesia. Cosmetic bonding can be applied in a single office visit.  Cosmetic bonding produces natural-looking results, letting you feel free to once again smile as much and as wide as you want to smile.
