Family Dentistry Services

Preventative Care:

  • Exams: Regular examines are a major component in maintaining your oral health. At your examine the dentist will spot any potential problems, take any needed photographs or x-rays and give you personalized advice on keeping up with your oral health at home.
  • Cleanings: In addition to routine examines, regular cleanings are vital to a healthy mouth. The hygienists at Short Pump will get your teeth cleaner than you can do on your own at home. They remove the plaque that causes cavities and apply fluoride to strengthen teeth. Regular cleanings are important for the whole family!

General Treatment:

  • Dental Fillings: If the dentist does find decay, our offices offer filings to repair it. We offer silver, gold, and white fillings and our staff are happy to help you decide the right choice for you.
  • Root Canals: Root canals may have a bad reputation but in reality, they are a simple relatively painless procedure used to save a tooth that otherwise would be lost to decay. The family dentists at Short Pump strive to make their patients comfortable and happy with their smiles.
  • Dental Crowns: For more extensive decay our dentist can apply a crown to your tooth to replace the enamel and restore the shape and size of the tooth.
  • Dental Bridges: We offer bridges for missing teeth or for a tooth that is too damaged to repair.
  • Tooth Extractions: Through preventative care and some of our other services we try to avoid extractions whenever possible, but sometimes the damage is not repairable and so extraction is necessary to achieve your best smile.

Periodontal Therapy:

Periodontal disease can cause many health issues. At Short Pump Dental we offer surgical and non-surgical techniques to restore the diseased tissue and save your teeth. Aging does not have to mean losing your teeth. Our dentists are here to identify issues early and are happy to work with you to make a plan for your mouth.


Sealants are a plastic resin that can be bonded to your molars to smooth out groves and prevent decay. A cosmetic dentist will apply the resin to your molars to prevent plaque growth and prevent decay. Sealants can protect your teeth for up to five years.
