What Are Composite Fillings?


Also referred to as filled resins, composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium, producing a tooth-colored filling.

This type of filling is often appropriate for smaller restorations in areas of the mouth where there is moderate chewing pressure. Generally, less of the tooth is removed and composites can often be bonded or adhesively held in a cavity.

There are many different dental filling choices. You can learn more about them on the ADA's Mouth Healthy website, MouthHealthy.org.
