In addition to routine cleanings and preventative care, South Philly Dental offers a range of services to optimize your oral health and your appearance.

Ask Dr. Kim about your custom dental solution.

Root Canals

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or has become infected. It may cause pain or it could be non-symptomatic. During a root canal procedure the nerve and pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. You are completely numbed during the procedure. Nowadays, root canals are not as painful as they once were. Many say it is no more painful than getting a filling.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices, not removable like dentures. Crowns and bridges are cemented on existing teeth or implants and can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.

Implant surgery and restoration

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural set. Because they are fused with bone, implants offer many advantages over non-permanent fixes such as dentures. Implants are more durable and comfortable as more of your natural teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.

Clear braces

ClearCorrect braces are excellent. There are no wires or brackets and we can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, customizable and removable aligners. Each aligner moves tour teeth a little bit at a time, which results in a set of straight teeth.

Complete and partial dentures

Some people refer a non-permanent solution to fix their teeth. We offer removable false teeth and create them to match your existing teeth. Ask us about our recommendations. We can provide dentures right after your teeth are removed, which is called immediate dentures.

In-office and at-home whitening 

Who doesn’t want a whiter smile? Start off with a dentist-supervised in-office whitening procedure, which is safe and effective. We offer an at-home whitening system to maintain your new smile and includes custom-fitted trays to apply the whitening solution.

Cosmetic veneers and resin filling

If your front teeth are discolored, stained, chipped, cracked, slightly misaligned or show metal fillings, consider dental veneers, which are thin and custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to dramatically improve the looks of your teeth.


Are you worried about getting a tooth pulled? Don’t. We will completely numb the area with a local anesthetic to ensure a pain-free experience.
