Tooth coloured fillings, also known as Composite Resin, are a cosmetic alternative to the old style silver-mercury fillings. They are made of a plastic material mixed with small glass particles and are tooth coloured, rather than silver. They are natural looking and are suitable for repairing cavities in any teeth.
This June Today’s Dentistry sent three of our dental team to perform voluntary dental treatments on Cambodian street children in Sihanoukville, Cambodia for one week.
