Composite Dental Fillings

Here at Hampden Dental Care, we are dedicated to taking a whole-body approach to our dental care. This means that we offer treatments and use materials that safe for not only the mouth but also the body. As part of this dedication, our dentist offers composite dental fillings in Lakewood, Colorado, to treat teeth that have been moderately damaged.

Traditional amalgam, or silver, fillings are made up of a mixture of metals, one of which is mercury. Mercury can be harmful to your health as it is released in small amounts through your filling. Composite dental fillings, however, are 100% mercury-free, so you never have to worry about them endangering your health. Amalgam fillings can also cause fractures or cracks in your tooth over time. On the other hand, composite fillings can actually strengthen the tooth structure for a long-lasting restoration. 

Each composite filling is matched to your unique tooth color and shape, resulting in a restoration that actually looks like your natural tooth. This means that Dr. David Edlund can not only repair cavities, cracks or fractures to your teeth, but he can also keep your smile’s natural and beautiful appearance.

If you are interested in receiving dental care that benefits both your smile and your health, we invite you to reach out to our team at 303-988-3800 and learn more about composite dental fillings.
