Cosmetic Dentistry in Fort Collins
Your smile is one of your most valuable possessions.
It allows you to express your identity confidently, so even a minor smile flaw can impact the way you feel about yourself and the way others see you.
Your Personalized Smile Treatment Plan
Fortunately, using updated cosmetic dental treatments at Buxton Family Dental, we can create a completely customized smile makeover that fits your needs.
Before we plan any cosmetic work, however, there are two questions we ask:
- What are your goals and expectations for a more attractive smile?
- Do you have a particular treatment in mind to reach your smile goals?
Whether you are considering a dramatic smile makeover or you would just like your smile to look a little brighter, we can help. We are happy to take all the time necessary to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and create a personalized treatment plan that helps you achieve your goals.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth that show when you smile. Dental porcelain is a highly durable material and has the same translucent qualities as tooth enamel.
Veneers can be used to conceal chips or change the size, shape, positioning, or shade of your tooth to completely redesign your smile. To make sure your veneers fit correctly, we remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Next, we take impressions and send them to a dental lab where your veneers are custom-crafted just for you.
Dental Bonding & Direct Veneers
Dental composite material consists of glass and resin particles, giving it an appearance that’s very similar to natural tooth enamel. This characteristic makes the material perfect for seamless dental fillings, but we can also use it to improve the appearance of front teeth with a procedure called cosmetic dental bonding.
We use bonding to fill in chipped or broken teeth or improve the shape of a tooth to give it a more pleasing appearance. You may hear this process referred to as direct veneers because we don’t have to send impressions to a dental lab and wait for them to be finished. We can usually complete the entire process in a single appointment, which also makes direct veneers less costly than porcelain veneers.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is by far the most popular cosmetic treatment because it is fast and affordable, and it produces dramatic results in a short amount of time. At Buxton Family Dental, our active patients love the convenience of our professional take-home whitening kits.
We provide you with customized trays made using impressions of your teeth, along with a supply of professional-strength whitening gel. Place the gel in the trays and wear them daily for about 30 minutes for two weeks. When finished, you can expect to see results that are about six to eight shades brighter than when you started.
