At Gwaltney Dental, we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. Our friendly, courteous staff is dedicated to providing professional dental services to achieve this goal. We want you to have the best patient experience when visiting the dentist and more importantly, we want you to love the grin you’re in!
Dr. Steve Gwaltney, Dr. J. Ryland Gwaltney, and Dr. Whitney Gwaltney have years of experience in treating patients with a range of oral health needs and concerns. As a family of dentists, Drs. Gwaltney knows how important it is for all members of the family to get the dental care they need. Because of this, they offer family and pediatric dental care. Parents and their children can often arrange for both to receive treatment on the same day at our Suffolk dentist office.
Our dentists understand that visiting the dentist for the first time can sometimes be a stressful experience for younger patients. Because of this, we take care to create a warm and comfortable environment for patients of all ages. We also work with parents so that they can know how to best care for their growing child’s teeth and gums. As children grow older, our team also helps educate them about how to care for their own oral health.
Modern Dental Treatments
Our office incorporated advanced dental technology to improve your patient experience and the integrity of your results. We provide a variety of popular and modern dental solutions in our Suffolk, VA dentist office:
- Dental Implants: As a versatile restorative dental option, dental implants provide stability by replacing missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to restore single missing teeth or even full rows of lost teeth. Dentures and dental bridges that are secured with dental implants last longer than traditional methods and require less maintenance.
- Invisalign: Clear Invisalign aligners straighten crooked and misaligned teeth quickly and comfortably. Patients with moderate orthodontic concerns can realign their smiles without dietary restrictions. When compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners do not irritate the gums and provides more customized care.
- Teeth Whitening: We provide Zoom! in-office teeth whitening to help our patients brighten their smiles. During treatment, we apply Zoom! whitening gel to the teeth and then activate it with UV light. In just one hour, our patients can whiten their teeth by multiple shades. Teeth whitening is also a great option for patients who are attending special events such as birthdays, weddings, and graduations.
