Longmont, CO Tooth Fillings Provide Beautiful Smile Repair

Say no to unsightly metal fillings! Silver Leaf Dentistry’s Longmont, CO tooth fillings will repair your smile and look natural at the same time. Dr. Wallin exclusively uses tooth-colored composite material to repair cavities. Until relatively recently, metal fillings had been the standard restorative dentistry option to repair cavities. Tooth-colored fillings offer many advantages, however, because they are:

  • Non-Toxic – Composite fillings do not contain any mercury or other heavy metals.
  • Discreet – Dr. Wallin will color-match your fillings to your other teeth, so no one will notice your fillings.
  • Minimally Invasive – Compared to metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings allow us to retain more of your natural tooth enamel.
  • Fast-Hardening – Because tooth-colored fillings are fully hardened by the time you leave our office, you can start chewing normally right after your appointment.
  • Durable – Composite resin fillings will last for several years without any special care.

If you need a tooth filled, call us today to schedule an appointment: 720-504-2539. We’re conveniently located just a few blocks from Burlington Elementary School. For your convenience, we’re open as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 7 p.m.

Keep Your Mouth Free From Painful Cavities

Tooth decay can often go unnoticed until it starts causing discomfort. Cavities can also cause these symptoms:

  • Sensitivity to certain foods and drinks
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Food becoming stuck on the surface of your teeth

At Silver Leaf Dentistry, we aim to find cavities while they are still small so we can minimize the amount of dental treatment needed. That’s one reason it’s important to see Dr. Wallin for regular dental cleanings and exams.

If too much of your natural tooth structure has been lost to decay, Dr. Wallin may recommend a dental crown. Your dental crown will completely cap the damaged tooth, protecting it and giving it a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Our Longmont, CO tooth fillings will repair dental damage and blend in seamlessly with your smile. Call us today at 720-504-2539 to schedule an appointment.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

Our white fillings are made out of composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. We can match the color of these materials to your other teeth so they will look completely natural in your smile. Unlike amalgam (metal) fillings, white fillings don’t contain mercury. So they’re a good choice for patients who prefer to avoid mercury.

How long do tooth fillings last?

Tooth fillings can be made from a variety of different materials. At Silver Leaf Dentistry, we use tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin. Not only will they last for an average of five to seven years, but they also blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. They won’t stand out like metal fillings can.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Getting a tooth filled does not have to be a painful experience. Your dentist and staff at Silver Leaf Dentistry will make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and comfortably. We’ll use a local anesthetic before starting to ensure that the area around the tooth is completely numb so you don’t feel pain.
