Braces are one of the most well-known and popular orthodontic treatments for straightening teeth and fixing bite issues. Modern traditional braces are much lighter and more comfortable than you might expect, and different bracket colours let patients customise their appearance while undergoing treatment. It takes an average of 12-24 months for braces to work their magic on the appearance of teeth, but the end result is a fantastic, healthy and long-lasting smile. 



Cfast is a simple, gentle and minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that focuses on correcting misalignment issues that only affect the top and bottom front six teeth that are most obvious when you smile. Cfast uses clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires that work in the same way as clear aligners. However, because only the front teeth are being targeted, treatment is much more predictable and much faster. This fast, effective and affordable treatment is ideal for people who have healthy teeth and want a quick smile fix.


composite bonding

A popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses a special material called composite resin to improve the appearance of the teeth. This soft material is applied to the outer faces of the teeth and then sculpted as required to cover minor imperfections. Once your Riverside cosmetic dentist is happy with the appearance of your teeth, a special light is used to harden the composite before it is polished to complete the treatment.

Dental crowns

Crowns can be cosmetic as well as functional and are most often recommended to cover teeth that have been left structurally intact, but looking less attractive than their neighbours. These hollow caps are designed specifically for each tooth, shade-matched to existing teeth and can restore their strength and appearance. They are also used as the visible part of the solution for dental implants.

Dental implants

Dental implants have transformed the way in which missing teeth are replaced and offer patients a permanent, long-lasting alternative to traditional dentures and bridges. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post into the jawbone, which then heals around it to anchor it permanently in the jaw. Once this process is complete, a bespoke crown can be used to create the visible restoration. Implants can last decades or more with the right care.

Dentures are one of the oldest techniques for restoring the smile in patients who are missing some or most of their teeth. Dentures are false teeth that are designed to look and act just like natural teeth, and modern dentures are more lifelike than many patients expect. In fact, people around you might never realise that your teeth are artificial at all. Choose a partial or full denture depending on your requirements. 


Inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays are used to fill holes in the teeth, but when they are made from composite, they can be shade-matched to the rest of your teeth so that they are virtually invisible once in place. Unlike fillings, inlays and onlays are made in a laboratory, meaning that they are designed specifically for your teeth and making them ideal to restore your smile so that it appears healthy and cavity-free.

SmileFast is a revolutionary concept that enables patients to enhance the appearance of the front six top and bottom teeth through the unique placement of composite veneers. We are delighted to be able to offer SmileFast to our patients who can benefit from a custom-designed composite veneer smile makeover in just a single application. This new technique reduces treatment time, giving you the smile you deserve more quickly and easily. 


Teeth whitening

One of the most sought-after cosmetic dental treatments, teeth whitening can lighten and brighten the colour of your smile by many shades. Whiter, brighter teeth are considered to be healthier and more attractive, and professional teeth whitening services provide faster and longer-lasting results than over the counter alternatives. Riverside Dental are a leading teeth whitening dental practice in Norwich and accept direct patients as well as referrals from other Norfolk dentists.

Dental veneers are a popular alternative to teeth whitening, where patients are perhaps unsuitable for dental bleaching. Veneers are thin, bespoke-created shells of porcelain that cover the outer faces of the teeth to cover imperfections such as discoloration, stains and minor cracks and chips. They can also be used to add uniformity to teeth by closing gaps and addressing height and thickness issues, making them exceptionally versatile for improving your smile.

Porcelain Crowns, Porcelain Veneers, Implants and Bridges commenced and completed at Riverside Dental are guaranteed to be replaced, if they cannot be repaired, for a period of three years for absolutely no fees or charges.

As we strive to give you the very best results we also stand behind our excellence in longevity, quality and durability. This is why we offer a genuine 3 year guarantee that offers total peace of mind. We really want your dental treatment to last as long as possible and are proud of our unique 3 year guarantee.

A few simple conditions apply:

  • The patient attends at least one examination and one hygiene appointment every 6 months at Riverside Dental following completion of treatment, and has followed our recommended preventative and maintenance program. The easiest way of doing this is by joining the Riverside Dental Plan (plus you get an extra 2 year guarantee!) For implants 3 month hygiene appointments are required for the first 12 months.

  • A bite guard is worn at night in cases where the dentist detects a history of grinding and/or clenching.

  • The dental treatment has been paid in full and there is no outstanding balance on the account.

  • The Crown, Porcelain Veneer, Implant or Bridge has not been damaged or lost due to trauma (accidents, sports or 3rd party) or neglect such as new decay, gum disease, misuse, abuse, accidents or any additional dental treatment.

  • If a general or systemic illness develops which, directly or indirectly, has an adverse effect on the jaw (e.g. diabetes,  epilepsy, osteoporosis, excessive x-rays or chemotherapy) or causes grinding of the teeth which has not been managed, this may void the guarantee.

  • In the unlikely event that your tooth needs root canal treatment, the nerve(s) in your tooth is/are unpredictable. This means root canal treatment is not covered by the 3 year guarantee.

  • The 3 year guarantee only applies if any remedial or subsequent dental work is provided by a dentist at Riverside Dental. Reimbursements for travel will not be paid.

  • If your dental treatment requires replacement or repair and a different dental material or technique is deemed to be necessary by the dentist or dental laboratory, then only the difference is payable.

  • If you start smoking or partake in illegal drug abuse this will void the guarantee.Join the Riverside Dental Plan and you get a 5 year guarantee!!


  • You must be a member of the Riverside Dental Plan before starting the treatment, during the treatment and remain a member for the full 5 years following completion.
