Composites are being widely used in day-to-day clinical practice. Though, numerous researches are being successfully carried out, polymerization shrinkage still seems to be a clinical hindrance. Megafillers are being used to overcome this. Only few types of megafillers are available but their cost is a major drawback. In this study, three innovative megafillers are used to reduce the polymerization shrinkage and hence improve the marginal adaptation of resin composite. The efficacy of these megafillers was evaluated using dye leakage.
