At Garcia Family Dental we focus on providing the most effective preventive dental care. We recommend coming in twice a year for a dental checkup, which includes a thorough teeth cleaning and comprehensive examination. Preventive care is especially important for pediatric patients, whose lifestyle and dietary habits make them most susceptible to cavities. In addition to providing protective treatments against tooth decay in children, we strive to make dental checkups engaging and educational. During your or your child's checkup, your dentist uses the most advanced diagnostic tools, such as digital imaging, intraoral cameras and telescopic loupes, to detect oral health conditions when they are first developing, at the microscopic level. Early intervention allows for the most straightforward and effective course of treatment. Whether you're coming in for a checkup or more in depth treatment, such as a root canal or a wisdom tooth extraction, we provide maximum comfort and relaxation during your visit. We offer sedation options, which help ease dental anxiety and can make a lengthy procedure feel like it's over in just minutes.

As your Seymour, IN dentist, we understand the important role your smile plays in contributing to your overall sense of self-esteem. We believe that everyone deserves to smile with confidence. Combining the art and science of dentistry, we can improve the aesthetics and function of your teeth with our extensive menu of cosmetic procedures. Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular option for transforming yellowish, stained teeth into a dazzling set of pearly whites. Porcelain veneers are another relatively simple procedure that can correct dental imperfections to create the luminous, harmonious smile of your dreams. We are also leading providers of Invisalign, a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces, allowing you to straighten your teeth with virtually invisible aligners.

For patients struggling with tooth loss, we offer options to create a smile that is beautiful, functional and complete. The most advanced method of tooth replacement is dental implants. A dental implant acts an artificial tooth root, preserving jaw bone and supporting natural looking replacement teeth. With dental implants, you'll find yourself eating, speaking and smiling with renewed confidence.
