**Abstract**: An effective Lagrangian for quark pairing in nonlinear chromodielectric models (CDM) is derived in the leading order. The effective pairing coupling depends explicitly on the confinement field, ÷, of the CDM manifesting a confinement effect on color superconductivity. The self-consistent gap equations are constructed and solved for the color-flavor locked phase. The pairing coupling, for the quartic ÷ potential used in the calculations, is inversely proportional to the second power of the ÷ field and to the ÷ mass squared. In the chiral solution the quarks do not pair, but in the chiral breaking solution, where ÷ is small and the effective pairing interaction is stronger, it does show pairing. Our results indicate that the vector channel of the gap is weaker than the scalar one.
