TAILORED TO YOU
If you develop tooth decay or break a tooth, London Road Dental Care can help by providing a high quality dental filling.

What can I expect from my treatment?
A filling treatment follows careful history taking, examination, perhaps an appropriate x-ray and of course a chat about the procedure to answer any concerns.

When the local anaesthetic has had chance to work and the area is numb the cavity is cleaned and the restoration is placed.
