Winter in Longmont CO

Longmont, Colorado is a quiet, beautiful part of the Rocky Mountains. Dr. Cliff Rogge opened this practice in 1990, but he has loved this city for much longer than that. Growing up here, Dr. Rogge knew that he always wanted to come back and serve the community. Since he noticed that a smile had a strong effect on how a person felt about themselves, he wanted to bring confidence to a community he loved so much through creating beautiful smiles with cosmetic dentistry, and maintaining healthy smiles with general dentistry.

Smile Design

If you are looking for a smile makeover, the first thing we do is bring you in for a smile design meeting. We go through what you dislike about your smile and talk about the techniques we can use to fix it. This is a team effort, so it is important for us to do it together and take the time necessary to fully mapping out a plan. There are several different methods we can use to make improvements, including bonding and veneers, and then moving on to the finishing touches.


This process involves bonding materials to the tooth to help improve its appearance. This is especially helpful when you have chipped or discolored teeth, because the resin material used covers the tooth completely. If you are looking for a fast, affordable option, this is a great one to consider.


Our porcelain veneers are one of the most popular options among the Longmont community. These are also used to cover an unattractive tooth and give it a straight, white, clean appearance. It requires little to no anesthesia. When we apply veneers, they have the potential to last a lifetime, so this is a great, long-lasting option.

Finishing Touches

To complete a smile, or just give a fast, refreshing fix to a smile, we have two quick procedures; gum contouring and teeth whitening. The difference these two procedures make on their own is subtle, yet drastic. Gum contouring is when we shape the gums around the teeth to look symmetrical, even, and healthy. This gives your smile a boost that makes everything look clean and beautiful. Teeth whitening is when we improve the coloring of your teeth. With a brighter, whiter look, eyes are naturally drawn to a smile. Either one of these procedures can greatly improve the overall appeal of a smile, but if you have other work done, we consider these the cherry on top to complete your new look.

Eliminating Dental Chair Fear

One of the reasons residents are hesitant to go to any Longmont dentist is because they are afraid of the pain often associated with dental work. Dr. Rogge wanted everyone to feel comfortable in our office seats, so he brought in sedation dentistry. This allows any of our patients to relax in the seat while the work is done. Simply waking up to a more beautiful smile is an attractive option that members of our community have really appreciated. Please don’t think that you must go through a lot of pain to get the smile of your dreams.

The technology in our office is modern and sophisticated, which allows us to do high quality work that you can trust. If you are looking for a smile makeover, come in today and let’s talk about what we can do to help.
