Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is the area of dentistry that improves the overall aesthetic or appearance of one’s teeth, gums or bite. Common cosmetic dentistry procedures include Professional Whitening, Bonding, Veneers, Contouring, Composite Fillings and Orthodontics. Typically, these procedures don’t just affect the appearance of your smile; They also positively affect your dental health.


Invisalign is the easiest and most convenient way to straighten your teeth. By using a series of removable custom aligners, your teeth slowly move into their desired position. Invisalign can be used to treat a wide variety of cases, and can even cut orthodontic treatment times in half for some patients!

One of the most popular reasons that many of our patients choose Invisalign over traditional braces is that it’s a treatment option that fits easily into anyone’s lifestyle. Whether you are a teacher, a business professional, or a professional athlete – Invisalign is a great way for you to get the smile you have always desired.

Our practice offers complimentary Invisalign consultations, flexible payment options, and digital impressions with our iTero digital scanner. At your Invisalign consultation, you will actually see your predicted results so that you know just what Invisalign can do for you! Contact our office to book your Invisalign consultation today.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional whitening is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures. Teeth can become stained for a variety of reasons, including smoking, eating certain foods, drinking coffee, tea or red wine, or having poor oral hygiene. Teeth bleaching can instantly enhance the appearance of a stained smile.

At River Run Dental, we utilize the Zoom! Professional Whitening System. Zoom! got its name from its speed. It’s considered one of the fastest teeth whitening systems. Zoom! is an in-office professional teeth whitening procedure. With just a single treatment, your teeth can look up to eight shades lighter!

In addition to the in-office procedure, your dental assistant will also manufacture a set of custom take home trays that you can take with you to use for future touch ups.


A veneer is simply a layer of material that is adhered over the tooth in order to improve the appearance of the tooth or to protect it from damage. Veneers can be used to remedy discolored, cracked, crooked, or broken teeth. After performing a thorough dental exam and, our dentists may recommend veneers as a treatment option to help you achieve your desired results.

The process of getting veneers typically requires several dental appointments. The first appointment involves a consultation and exam. The second appointment is when the tooth is prepped for the veneer. The final appointment is when the veneer is bonded to the existing tooth structure.


Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth may be repaired or have their appearance improved with bonding. Tooth bonding involves the placement of a natural looking material onto the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the remainder of the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth to create a healthy, bright smile.

Without even realizing it, many patients have received a dental treatment involving dental bonding: either direct composite bonding or adhesive bonding of a restoration that was created in a laboratory or in-office.
