What are tooth-colored alternatives for replacing silver fillings in back teeth?
Posterior composites are tooth-colored fillings used for back teeth. The material used is a combination of resin-based materials reinforced with glass particles. This treatment is indicated for the restoration of small to moderate defects; this treatment is done in a single visit. Other options are ceramic inlays or onlays. These fillings are made of dental porcelain restorations that are made in the laboratory and often require two visits. Ceramic inlays are indicated for moderate to large defects in the posterior teeth.
