I had two IPL facial treatments to remove sunspots, and the results were AMAZING! I had never had anything done to my face before and was rather skeptical. Dr. Heywood was extremely professional, and I highly recommend her.

I came in for a tooth whitening session with Dr. Heywood.  She was very nice and keeps her office extremely sanitary and is very meticulous about using PPE to keep herself and her patients safe.  I'm very happy with the results of my teeth whitening at her office.  I'm not embarrassed to show my smile anymore :)

Could not have been more pleased. Dr. Lewis’ COVID precautions were perfect (which is something I care about greatly). Her care and attention were beyond any dental care I’ve had back in Denver. I’m so happy to have found her practice. Highly recommended.

Let's take a closer look at some of the most popular aesthetic dentistry treatments at Riverside Dental...

Treatments in Cosmetic Dentistry

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Fillings made from high-grade composite resin blend in with your smile for natural-looking results. Many patients even choose to have their old silver fillings removed and replaced with tooth-colored fillings.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are custom-crafted ceramic shells that fit over the front teeth. Dentists use veneers to camouflage a wide range of cosmetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and misshapen teeth.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that can repair large cavities, reinforce cracked teeth, or even restore dental implants. At Riverside Dental, Dr. Lewis-Heywood crafts crowns using high-quality materials that mimic natural enamel.

Gum Contouring

Excess gum tissue can make your natural teeth appear boxy, small, or short. Cosmetic gum contouring eliminates excess tissue and reshapes the gum line improving balance, symmetry, and proportions between the teeth and gums.

Teeth Whitening

Aging, smoking, and consuming dark-colored foods and beverages can stain your teeth over time. At Riverside Dental, our dentist can brighten your smile dramatically by several shades using advanced in-office or take-home whitening.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth not only affect your appearance, but also compromise your oral health and dental function. Dental implants are anchored into the jaw to replace missing teeth roots. They can be restored with crowns, bridges, and even dentures.

Many patients want a straighter smile, but they don't want to wear traditional braces. SureSmile® gradually shifts your teeth into the proper positions using a series of clear aligner trays. They can even be removed so you can still enjoy your favorite foods.

PDO Thread Lift

A thread lift uses dissolvable sutures to lift and tighten your skin. This in-office procedure takes less than one hour to complete, and is a less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts. Thread lifts also stimulate natural collagen production, giving your skin more elasticity.

IPL Photofacial

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treats your skin at the cellular level and reverses the signs of aging. We harness this technology for our photofacial treatment. The FDA-approved procedure can treat sun damage, acne scars, skin discoloration, and other imperfections.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Accentuate your new, beautiful smile with flawless skin. Dentists use BOTOX injections to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a fresher, more youthful look. Noticeable results are achieved within a week, and outcomes last up to four months on average.

Dermal Fillers

Restore volume to your facial tissue, reduce fine lines, and plump up thin lips with dermal fillers. We have a variety of options to choose from, depending on your specific needs. Results are immediate and last between six and 18 months.
