BACKGROUND- Composite resin restoration on posterior teeth through conventional technique is generally, a time consuming procedure with risk of contamination between layers. Therefore, there have been techniques developed to facilitate the work of dental professionals and achieve aesthetic and functional results such as occlusal stamp technique. One of the major factor after the restoration of teeth is reproducing the original tooth anatomy to near perfection. "Stamp technique" is a novel & easy technique for filling the such carious teeth which has undestructed occlusal topography. With high precision & accuracy when restoring to functional occlusion, stamp technique is of great use. It is usually a method for placing large composite restorations with accurate occlusal topography. Although convenient, it has found acceptance in only a small percentage of practitioner. 
CASE PRESENTATION- A 18 year old female reported of decayed tooth in lower left back posterior region of jaw. On clinical examination pit fissure caries was noticed in lower left second molar of jaw. Patient had no complaint of sensitivity in the same region. Since no tooth morphology was destructed and only pit fissure caries was observed, Occlusal stamp technique treatment procedure was opted. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate & discuss various aspects & application of this technique, highlighting the point that stamp technique enables the clinician to accomplish more in less time.
CONCLUSION-Stamp technique for direct composite restoration is a convenient, favorable & biomimetic procedure . The accuracy of topography replication is far greater than the plain manual method & can be adapted to unconventional cavities as well

Composite restorative materials represent one of the many successes of modern biomaterials research, since they replace biological tissue in both appearance and function. At least half of posterior direct restoration placements now rely on composite materials . Composite resins are a class of dental restorative materials that are a mixture of organic and inorganic components. The primary organic components are the resin, the coupling agent, the initiator and filler. Fillers play a pivotal role in the performance of composite resins. Fillers can be from a wide range of materials. Fillers in composites can be made of glasses, ceramics, metals etc. Glass fillers are usually made of crystalline silica, silicone dioxide, lithium/barium-aluminium glass, and borosilicate glass containing zinc/strontium/lithium. Ceramic fillers are made of zirconia-silica, or zirconium oxide. The development and implementation of composite dental restorative materials rely on a comprehensive understanding of each component of the composite and consideration of methods for changing each component. The aim of the review is to showcase the recent advances in composite resin fillers which have substantially improved the clinical performance of composite
