Tooth-colored fillings, also called composite fillings, are a type of filling valued most for their ability to closely match the natural color and look of your teeth. Unlike the standard amalgam fillings that appear silver on your teeth, composites will fill in the necessary space and maintain a relatively organic look. They are made up of a combination of plastic resin and silica fillers and are used most often on the front of more visible teeth.
Composite fillings are an excellent choice and provide good durability and resistance in the face of small to medium-sized fillings. They can stand up relatively well to moderate pressure that is a result of the constant stress of chewing.
Dr. Lawlor belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists and has been specifically trained in cosmetic dentistry. The American Dental Association does not issue special certifications or licenses indicating which dentists are cosmetic dentists and which are not. The dentist you go to for twice-yearly check-ups is probably not going to be the same dentist you go to for cosmetic enhancement. Unless you’re in the qualified hands of Dr. Lawlor!
