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
