Cosmetic dental procedures are aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth, gums, and bite and fighting the effects of age and wear that affect even the healthiest teeth.

Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information

Dental Services Provided at South River Dentistry
At South River Dentistry, we offer a wide variety of dental services to meet your oral health care requirements in one convenient location. Our patients can visit us for everything from a simple check-up to relief from a sudden toothache or a more complex restorative procedure such as a custom-made crown. Here is a brief overview of the services we offer.
Regular check-ups and professional cleaning
At South River Dentistry, we firmly believe that the best dental care is preventative dental care. Our goal is to help you maintain an effective routine for oral hygiene so that you are able to prevent tooth decay and avoid the cost and effort of dealing with cavities and gum disease. You can safeguard your smile with a visit to South River Dentistry every six months for a professional cleaning and dental exam. The dental team can remove stubborn plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing simply can't handle, as well as identify the warning signs of decay and damage that would normally go unnoticed.
Everything from diet and personal habits to the normal effects of aging can leave even the healthiest teeth faded or discolored. However, we offer a variety of teeth whitening services and will work with you to find the right one to fit your needs, schedule, and budget. We offer highly effective whitening procedures that require only a short visit to our office, or you may prefer the convenience of whitening kits that you can use in the comfort of your own home.
Are you suffering from a toothache, a lost filling, painful gums, or a damaged tooth? Our dental team at South River Dentistry can identify your particular problem and provide a stress-free treatment with your comfort in mind. Our highly trained technicians, hygienists, and dentists will employ the most up-to-date methods and innovative technology to administer care that is accurate, effective, and affordable. From new fillings to root canals, at South River Dentistry, we ensure that our patients receive the care necessary to enjoy healthy teeth for years to come.
Corrective dental services
You may be unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth, but you would like to know more about the options available. We encourage you to call us at 804-378-7888 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures -- from reliably effective and affordable metal braces to the latest innovative orthodontic methods like Invisalign®. Invisalign® utilizes clear teeth aligners that are less noticeable than metal braces. They are also removable, making them an excellent choice for those who prefer versatility. You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.
Restorative dental care
Regardless of how rigorously you care for your teeth, over time, you may suffer physical trauma that results in weakened, chipped, or missing teeth. These conditions can compound and lead to a bite misalignment, bone degeneration, or even further tooth loss. However, we can customize a treatment plan for veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, or dental implants that will restore your smile and promote excellent overall oral health. Restoring your ideal dental structure not only improves your appearance and oral health but also prevents adjacent teeth from shifting and eliminates the discomfort of a misaligned bite.
Emergency dental care
If you have experienced physical trauma such as a chipped or broken tooth or if you are suffering the pain of an aggravated abscess, South River Dentistry can provide the relief you need. For emergency dental needs during standard business hours, just call South River Dentistry at 804-378-7888 to consult with our helpful staff.
If you are unsure if we provide a particular service to meet your individual need, please do not hesitate to call us at 804-378-7888 for further inquiry; we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Our dental team utilizes the most advanced dental equipment in order to provide treatment of the highest quality, safety, and comfort. Our dental team uses the iTero Element scanner to produce high-resolution 3D images of your upper and lower dental structures. The iTero's virtual model of your teeth is created without the time and discomfort required by the use of traditional x-ray photos and the dreaded dental impression goo necessary for making a physical model. In only seconds, your dental team at South River Dentistry will be able to show you a model of your teeth's current condition as well as a side-by-side simulation of your smile with its ideal spacing and alignment. The unprecedented resolution capable with the iTero Element allows the hygienists and dentist here at South River Dentistry to provide you with a higher quality of oral health care by identifying dental problems such as early decay or microscopic fractures in a fraction of the time required by old-fashioned methods. This means that your dentist can give you a diagnosis with greater accuracy while also decreasing the amount of time for your examination.
