In brief: White filling

A posterior composite filling is a white colored filling on a posterior tooth (molar or bicuspid).
Composite is a mixture of glass/mineral particles in a resin matrix and can be bonded or glued to the surface of the tooth. The cost varies by surfaces involved and where you live. In california the cost can range from 150 to 450 dollars.

composite fillings are superior to amalgam fillings as they bond to the tooth.

In brief: 30% > than amalgam

The composite resin fillings are more time consuming they are more expensive by 30-50% than amalgam fillings.
The fact is that posterior composites cost more and wear out quicker than amalgam.
