Dental materials should not only be aesthetic, but also show good biological compatibility. Different monomers and co-monomers can be released from composite resins and have a toxic effect on the body.
Therefore, toxicity / compatibility should always be considered when choosing dental materials.
In our practice we use Saremco Green Line, a high quality Swiss product, which is free of BisGMA, BisphenolA, HEMA, TEGDMA and fluoride. We also use Admira Fusion from VOCO. This is a purely ceramic-based composite.
Furthermore, the composites are placed in small layers and thoroughly cured. The concentration of non-crosslinked monomers can thus be significantly reduced.

Composites can be used for small dental defects. However, for larger defects, ceramic fillings are an ideal choice.
