Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information
Cosmetic dental procedures are aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth, gums, and bite and fighting the effects of age and wear that affect even the healthiest teeth. From alignment, shape, or size to whitening and stain removal, our cosmetic dental services can improve the aesthetic quality of your teeth so that your smile looks as good as it feels.More information
Oral Cancer Screening
The dental community is the first line of defense in early detection of oral cancer. The goal of oral cancer screening is to detect mouth cancer or precancerous lesions that may lead to mouth cancer at an early stage — when cancer or lesions are easiest to remove and most likely to be cured.More information

The Dental Services We Provide
Professional Teeth Cleaning
We recommend that you visit us at least twice a year for a regular check-up and professional teeth cleaning. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home just can't handle. Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide for you is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat.
Corrective Dental Procedures
Are you unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth? We encourage you to call us at 618-288-6204 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures such as Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign treatment is a wonderful option for working adults because it produces similar results to traditional metal braces, but utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are virtually invisible. You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Our team will work with you to determine what method works best for your lifestyle and dental needs. Make Glen Carbon Family Dentistry your home for Invisalign aligners in Glen Carbon!
Regardless of how meticulous we are about our oral health care, unforeseen situations can cause a myriad of dental problems. Whether the cause is physical trauma or untreated decay, Glen Carbon Family Dentistry will work with you to find the dental treatment option that is perfectly suited to your individual oral health needs.
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at Glen Carbon Family Dentistry can restore the brilliance of your smile. The Zoom! teeth whitening method has a proven track record of dramatically improving the whiteness of your smile by up to six shades in a very short amount of time. We are happy to discuss your options for whitening and will work with you to determine the treatment that will make your smile look as good as it feels.
Innovative Technology for Dental Care
Here at Glen Carbon Family Dentistry, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at Glen Carbon Family Dentistry we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, gum disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
