What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry can treat any dental condition that you feel adversely affects the quality of your smile. It can improve your overall dental health, bite function, and quality of life. When you feel confident in your smile, you are more confident in work, play, and life in general. A confident smile is priceless!
At Dr. Brian Cox Dentistry, our philosophy is that ALL dentistry as cosmetic dentistry. We believe that singling out specific treatments as only cosmetic or only restorative is misleading, and here’s why: Whether we are treating a front tooth that people will see every time you smile or we’re treating a far back molar that you share only with your bathroom mirror, every tooth matters when it comes to the entire oral care and aesthetic quality of your smile. When Dr. Cox is done treating a tooth, it will be aesthetically perfect no matter where it is in your mouth.
The aesthetic-focused procedures Dr. Cox has perfected in his office include:
- Recontouring, reshaping, polishing, and smoothing on rough or worn out tooth edges or chipped or broken teeth
- Aesthetic, custom crafted crowns and veneers
- Composites (tooth-colored fillings)
- Teeth whitening
Is cosmetic dentistry right for you?
Patients often think cosmetic dentistry (simply by the nature of its name) is an unaffordable luxury when they should be spending time and money on more immediate dental needs. The truth is, many dental procedures that will improve your smile are both noninvasive (won’t need anesthetic) and inexpensive. Often, just simply smoothing out a chipped tooth, or recontouring and polishing a rough edge is all that is needed to perfect a smile. Dr. Cox is an experienced dentist who particularly loves the art of dentistry — he is very talented and patients have left his office many times with beautiful smiles that they never thought would be possible.
Maintaining Your New Smile
Want to keep your smile looking its best for years to come? The answer is simple: Brush and floss, repeat. Brush and floss, repeat. Brush and floss, repeat. And be sure to visit our Fort Collins, CO dental office every six months for a cleaning and exam — and a treat from the treasure box if you’d like.
Getting Started on Your New Smile
During your first appointment at our Fort Collins dental office, Dr. Brian Cox will meet with you, review all dental records, and most importantly, listen to your specific dental concerns. This initial evaluation and oral examination allow Dr. Cox to create a step-by-step plan that is individualized for your unique needs and goals. In most cases, Dr. Cox can present several options, allowing you to choose which option best meets your overall needs and lifestyle.
When it comes to your smile, practice makes perfect!
Dr. Cox has more than 20 years of experience, putting the “perfect” in the saying, “practice makes perfect.” Dr. Cox is a perfectionist and an artist who knows and understands his craft. And what’s more, he truly enjoys the art of dentistry! You can get all the A’s and B’s you want in biochemistry and anatomy in dental school, but the truth is, it’s the person who can skillfully perform the dental procedure that is the true dental artist. It’s a talent and a gift that not everyone has, but one you can find at Dr. Brian Cox Dentistry.
