White Fillings by Smile Care Cosmetic Centre Plymouth in Plymouth

Aesthetic dental treatments that are performed when the tooth has decay, fracture or fillings in poor condition. Damaged or carious tissue is removed by a special device and replaced by composite resin (white fill) that hardens with LED light. These filings are carved and polished to provide a natural and aesthetic appearance. We use the best quality 3M brand fillers.
