Hi..Now a days you have lot of fillings and all of them are tooth colored except few. However the longevity and strength of filling is based on your food habits and tooth retention area. Less the retention, less the longevity. However, Composite, Type 9 GIC, and even miracle mix is said to be strong. Regards

Hello there... Usually composite filling stays for longer ...but again it depends on the placement technique by the dentist ...and the eating habits of patients... Take care ..!!
