Abstract: Tooth-coloured restorations in posterior teeth are becoming increasingly popular, with the results of a survey of 1,000 UK dentists in 2002 and 2008 indicating a decline from 86%1 to 59%2 of restorations in posterior teeth formed in amalgam, with restorations formed in resin composite increasing accordingly.
