Resin Composites Restorations (Bonding)
Resin composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin that produces a tooth-colored filling. They are sometimes referred to as bonding, composites or filled resins. Composites provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-sized restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure.
Composites are also more beneficial from a longevity standpoint because less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, resulting in a smaller filling than one made with amalgam and a stronger natural tooth.
