Case study

Michael attended Smilemakers unhappy with the appearance of an old composite filling on his front tooth. The filling was stained and the colour match poor. After discussing the options, a solution was found in replacing the filling with a new composite filling, giving a simple solution that blends in naturally with the remaining tooth.
