If you are looking for an expert dental practice that will be able to provide you with a wide variety of dental services, than you want to visit us at our dental office, Avanti Dental Care. At our office our doctor, Dr. Juan Sauza, will be able to offer you many different types of dental services, including Longmont dental fillings for teeth cavities.
At our dental practice, we are happy to be able to offer two different types of teeth fillings for when the patient has dental cavities. We offer both tooth-colored composite fillings as well as silver amalgam Longmont dental fillings. Our dentist will recommend which type of dental filling will work best for you, generally depending on the size and location of the cavity. Each type of dental filling has its own benefits. Tooth-colored composite fillings are aesthetically pleasing as they are made to match the color of the tooth, and cannot be seen. They are excellent for front teeth and for areas that show when the patient smiles or speaks. Silver amalgam fillings are stronger, and are generally useful for cavities on the flat chewing surfaces of the back molars. Silver amalgam fillings are much less likely to break or cause any type of problem, and they will last longer in your mouth as well. On the other hand, tooth-colored composite fillings will actually bond to your teeth so they will serve to strengthen your tooth. Composite fillings also call for less of the tooth enamel to be removed while they are being applied. However, since the installation process is a bit more involved, they may cost more. You will want to check with your dental insurance to make sure that the ceramic fillings are covered under your particular dental plan.
If you have a pain in your tooth when you eat something sweet, you may well have a cavity and need to visit our office for Longmont dental fillings. For an appointment to meet with our dentist at Avanti Dental Care, contact us today.
