Posterior teeth restorations present as basic requests the functional and aesthetic reconstruction of the dental element. For this, it is necessary to understand the technique and materials available to restore the tooth structure. The evolution of loading particles present in restorative materials – from macroparticles to suprananometric particles, which combine better optical and mechanical properties – allowed the professional to make very satisfactory restorations that restore shape and function really close to that present in the natural dental tissues. Thus, the aim of this study was to report a clinical case in which old composite resin restorations were replaced due to defects in shape and polish, which prejudiced the function as well. Therefore, different restoration techniques were used, resorting to a suprananometric composite resin. It is important to highlight that the evolution in the development of the composite resins has favored the control of hue, chroma and value, besides providing excellent polish and brightness.
