Loss of the enamel structure of the tooth may occur due to different reasons such as caries, root canal treatment, filling renewal, replacement of old amalgam fillings, fracture or erosion. In such cases, the filling option is an alternative to replace the lost tooth tissue. The size and location of the filling is the biggest factor affecting its permanence. There are different types of composites that are specific to the anterior and posterior region. While durability is more important for the teeth in the posterior region, aesthetic filling preference is more important for the anterior region. The work on the anterior teeth should be done with more precision in a longer appointment, since the teeth are on the smile line.
