Composite is a combination of materials with a high proportion of fine ceramic particles. For this reason, it is also referred to as 'mouldable ceramic'. This high-tech substance has the excellent modelling characteristics of synthetic materials and the outstanding abrasion resistance of ceramic. Thanks to these properties, composite restorations have natural and lasting aesthetics.
Inlays made of solid ceramic in the posterior region are considered as the most aesthetically pleasing alternative to amalgam today. Solid ceramic is a very compatible and high grade material. Ceramic fillings are produced in the dental laboratory and are bonded or cemented into the tooth. This makes it possible to achieve practically "invisible", colour-accurate reconstruction of the tooth.
