Posted November 08, 2019 12:15:12 Plastic dentures, which are often used as dental fillings, are widely seen as an unnecessary, unhealthy replacement for traditional teeth.

This week, the charity launched a new campaign to get more people to buy a plastic denture.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the health benefits of using plastic dentistry.
