Dental Services in Elgin
Elgin Family Dental is proud to offer a wide array of dental services so our patients don’t have to run around town to get the individual treatments they need. In addition to preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services, our practice welcomes visiting orthodontist Dr. Stephen Robirds twice a month to provide orthodontic treatments. We also see dental emergencies promptly so you can get the urgent care you need ASAP!
Preventive Dental Care
Elgin Family Dental offers individual consultations, dental exams, and routine cleanings. We also provide additional preventive services to protect your teeth and gums from harmful decay or injury. We encourage our patients to practice proper home care in order to maintain great overall oral health and avoid serious issues in the future.

Dentures & Removable Partial Dentures
Composite fillings are adhesively held in place or “bonded,” which allows for more conservative preparations that involve less removal of healthy tooth structure. The tooth-colored material is cured with a special light, and the surface is shaped and polished to match the tooth, rendering the final restoration virtually undetectable to the eye. This means smaller, more-natural looking fillings than that of amalgam (silver) fillings. Composite fillings are also environmentally friendly because they don’t use mercury!
From minor tooth adjustments and smile enhancements to dramatic smile makeovers, our cosmetic dentistry can transform your teeth into your perfect smile.
Lumineers® are one of the most popular forms of dental veneers these days. Compared to traditional veneers, they require less removal of enamel and less preparation. In just two visits, you’ll get a stunning smile designed just for you!
In addition to giving you the benefit of a more attractive smile, teeth whitening has also been found to have anti-cavity benefits and promote better overall enamel health, possibly because when your teeth look better, you take better care to keep them looking fabulous.

Advanced Dental Technology
Modern technology can make a world of difference with dentistry. Elgin Family Dental has equipped our office with the latest and greatest equipment so you’ll have a seamless, comfortable visit each and every time.
Digital X-rays are faster than conventional x-rays, and they are more comfortable for you, too. They help us accurately diagnose your oral health needs, all with up to 90% less radiation exposure! With no chemical processing needed, digital technology also helps us do our part to keep the environment safe.
We use VELscope ® technology to identify soft tissue abnormalities that can turn into oral cancer. This tool helps effectively diagnose oral cancer in its early, highly curable stage.
Using this camera, we can give you a “tour” of your mouth on a TV screen (which is really pretty cool!). This helps us guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options and keeps you at the center of your own treatment plans. We want you to feel informed every step of the way, so you can make smart choices for your oral health.
With the Isolite™ system, patients spend less time in the dental chair and are kept more comfortable. This system has a soft, flexible mouthpiece to shield your tongue and cheek during procedures—and it has a place for you to rest your jaw. It even has a light to illuminate your mouth from the inside, so treatments are provided more efficiently. Isolite also eliminates the need for cotton rolls and rinse breaks. We think you’ll feel the difference with this handy technology!
We use digital imaging to show you how great your new and improved smile could look before treatment even begins. Patients love being able to see a simulation of their treatment plan’s results!
Our skilled team has years of experience in sedation dentistry. With our sedation options, we can offer you worry-free dental care that’s more relaxing than you’ve ever experienced. Plus, sedation dentistry helps us take care of multiple treatments in one appointment, so you don’t have to keep coming back to get all your dental care.
If you’ve avoided seeing a dentist for a long time because of dental anxieties or fear, please call us today. More and more life-threatening diseases are being linked to the presence of dental diseases, and sedation dentistry can help you get the care you need to stay healthy without any stress.
