Affordable Pediatric Dentist in Longmont, CO
At Longmont Pediatric Dentistry, we offer comprehensive pediatric dentistry treatment for infants, toddlers, children and teenagers.
Our services include:
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child's first checkup should occur by age 1. At this important visit we will check the baby teeth for early cavities, show you how to care for a young child's mouth properly, go over your child's developmental milestones, and discuss the importance of good oral hygiene.
White Fillings (aka restorations) are used when decay is present on a tooth. After the decay is removed from the tooth, the filling material replaced the lost tooth structure so the tooth can function properly.
Dental sealants are white resin coatings that smooth out the chewing surfaces of the back teeth — the place where your child is most likely to get tooth decay. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a cavity, which could require expensive dental treatment and cause your child pain.
Cosmetic bonding uses tooth-colored materials to replace missing tooth structure or hide minor defects like chips, discoloration, or irregular spacing. It's a great option for children and teens, who often need to wait for their teeth to mature before choosing a more permanent restoration (like a crown or veneer).
