Many of us turn to the Internet or to home based solutions to address whitening our teeth.

Dental fissure seals are a coating that is put on the biting surfaces of children’s back teeth to help minimise decay in the grooves of the teeth.

Even more seriously, dental phobia (a very high fear of the dentist which
At Renton Dental, we understand how hard it can be to balance the household budget.
