Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

- Since they bond to the tooth, composite fillings restore most of the original strength of the tooth. Silver fillings weaken the teeth, making them more susceptible to breaking.
- Since broken teeth are very expensive to restore, composites can save a great deal of expense over the long run.
- Composite fillings restore the natural appearance of the tooth.
- Teeth restored with white fillings are less sensitive to hot and cold than teeth restored with amalgam.
- Composites require less removal of tooth structure to place. Especially with new cavities, the size of the hole made for the filling can be dramatically smaller with composites.
