This paper presents an overview of the role of composite posterior restorations. Composites perform well as a first treatment approach to dental caries and may keep teeth free from recurrent caries. They are less successful when used as replacements for existing amalgam restorations. Use of indirect composite inlays may prevent or delay the additional tooth destruction necessitated by full-coverage restorations.
