By Dr. Roger Suter

What is composite?

A tooth-colored filling material made of resins or glass and plastics, reinforced with silica or porcelain particles.

The many uses of composite in dentistry

As fillings (one of several alternatives to mercury dental amalgam), bonding, bridges, veneers, inlays, and other cosmetic restorations.

Advantages of composites

More affordable than porcelain

Composite veneers don’t require the removal of enamel
