from our family to yours
Metropolitan Dental Care has proudly served Denver and the surrounding communities for over 30 years. During that time, we have acquired a team of dental professionals who adhere to a patient-focused ideology. In other words, we believe in treating every patient as a member of our own family.
Our doctors include general dentists and specialists so that we can provide comprehensive, consistently high-quality care, whatever your dental plan may entail.
general dentistry services
At Metropolitan Dental Care, we offer numerous treatments in general dentistry, including:
dental cleanings and check-ups
Every six months, you should have a thorough check-up of your mouth, jaws, head, and neck. During the exam, your dentist will look for signs of any dental problems, including tooth decay, failing dental work, and orthodontic concerns. We also evaluate for gum disease. You may need x-rays, as well.
After your exam, the hygienist will perform a professional cleaning. This includes the removal of plaque, tartar, and debris from the teeth. When the cleaning is done, the hygienist will polish your teeth.
Note that not everyone is eligible for a check-up and cleaning on the same day. If you have gum disease or certain health issues, you may need to be seen at a different time. We’ll work with you to make appointments comfortable for your schedule.

Professional teeth cleanings are essential to maintaining good oral health, but how you care for your teeth and gums between visits is just as important. Our team is dedicated to educating you and your family on excellent brushing and flossing techniques. We will also recommend oral hygiene products to suit your particular needs.
For patients with mild to moderate tooth decay (cavity), we offer tooth-colored composite resin fillings. We consider resin fillings a better option than the silver amalgam (metal) fillings for a few reasons. Due to their dark metallic hue, amalgam fillings are very noticeable. They also contain mercury, a hazardous heavy metal that could be harmful to your overall health. Amalgam fillings usually require that we remove a greater amount of tooth structure than is required for resin fillings.
Metal-free resin fillings will blend seamlessly with your smile and offer a healthy, natural-looking restoration.
