Dental Services in Peoria, IL

Brilliant, healthy teeth are a sign of good health. If you’re unhappy with your smile or are suffering from dental issues, it may be time to consult with an experienced dentist. In addition to providing routine oral exams, dentists can adjust and align your teeth using braces and cosmetic treatments. Dentists can also help protect the health of your gums, providing thorough cleanings and periodontal care. If you suspect dental problems, it’s important to visit the dentist before the problem gets worse. When left untreated, dental issues can worsen and become more expensive to correct.

At our dental office, we specialize in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and periodontal care. Our team of experienced dentists can fit metal braces and clear aligners, helping you achieve a straight and healthy smile. We help patients restore their gum health, offering gingivitis solutions that work. We also provide full-service family dentistry, including routine crown placements, fillings, and dental checkups. During our dental procedures, you’ll have the option to be sedated, which can help anxious patients relax during treatment. Ultimately, our goal is to help our patients maintain their dental health and confidence. If you’re ready to improve the health of your smile, call our office to schedule an appointment.
