I need a dental crown

Porcelain dental crowns at River Peak Dental naturally restore damaged teeth. Full function & appearance quickly return with modern materials.

I want straighter teeth

Invisalign brings stealth straightening to you with thin, invisible trays. River Peak Dental’s experience puts a stunning smile within easy reach.

I’m nervous for my treatment

Some procedures may require a deep level of sedation for anxious patients. River Peak Dental provides IV sedation when other methods are not enough.
