asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many suppliers of traditional dental amalgam serve the National Health Service; and how many now supply tooth coloured resin replacements.

Information about the number of suppliers of filling materials is not available. There are 21 manufacturers of dental amalgam products approved for use in the general dental service. I understand that there are approximately 17 manufacturers of tooth coloured resin based materials.
