composite,

n in dentistry, material made from mixture of resin and silica used in tooth-colored fillings and other restorative work. It was created as an alternative to metallic fillings, which were much more visible due to their dark coloring. Also known as a
resin matrix.
composite cement,
n a dental adhesive made of colloidal silica powder combined with the matrix monomer dimethacrylate.
composite odontoma,
composite resin,
composites, hybrid,
n.pl resins made from a combination of macrofill and microfill particles that are generally considered easy to polish and highly resistant to fracture and wear. They may be used for either anterior or posterior applications. See also resin, composite and resin-filled.
composites, macrofilled,
n.pl strong resins made from small particles filled with either glass or quartz. They may be difficult to polish. See also resin, composite and resin-filled.
composites, microfilled,
n.pl filled resins made from finely ground silica used for anterior esthetic restorations because they polish well and retain their shine. See also resin, composite and resin-filled.
