Our Services

Galena Dental offers a full range of dental services to meet the needs of your family. Our services include, but are not limited to the following:

Cosmetic Dentistry

White (Resin) Fillings

Dr. Palacios has been doing tooth colored restorations, otherwise known as white fillings, for the last six years exclusively. For the last hundred years, dentists have been restoring teeth with amalgam (silver fillings), and it served us well. In the last ten years, science has provided us with the ability to restore teeth with resin instead of the silver fillings. Resin fillings are more esthetically pleasing and last just as long as the silver ones; they also have the added benefit of actually making the tooth stronger since it bonds to the walls of the tooth being restored.

Tooth Whitening

At Galena Dental, we whiten teeth in a manner that will be most comfortable for the patient and will offer the longest lasting results. By using the tray technique, you can lighten the color of your teeth at your convenience, with the least amount of discomfort. In addition, if you choose to continue the procedure past the normal two weeks in order to achieve further lightening, you will achieve significant savings because you already have the trays.

Get Ready to Zoom!

The Zoom!™ whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The Zoom!™ clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom!™ Whitening Gel which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.

Do You Want to Zoom!™?

The Zoom!™ In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening dentistry procedure, it's safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom!™ Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom!™ in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.

How Zoom!™ Works!

The Zoom!™ light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening dentistry. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom!™ light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch -up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years. Tune in to Zoom!™

Porcelain Veneers

Patients concerned with the appearance of their front teeth can now have the smiles of their dreams with porcelain veneers. In about the time it takes to have a crown made, we can fix chipped, stained and even crooked teeth, with only a slight modification of the existing teeth.


Dr. Palacios has been providing both his adult and adolescent patients with orthodontic services (Braces) since 1992. He offers both traditional and “Invisible” braces. Call our office for a free evaluation.

Periodontal (gum) Treatments

Galena Dental believes that patients should take care of their entire mouth, not just their teeth. Healthy gums are crucial to the patient’s overall health. We therefore offer deep cleanings and general cleanings, along with a variety of other services to help those patients with periodontal disease.


Crowns and Bridges

With recent advances in dentistry, we can now offer all porcelain crowns and bridges that look completely natural and use no metal for those patients with concerns about metal allergies.

Dentures and Partials

For patients who have lost a majority or all of their teeth Galena Dental offers full or partial dentures, This provides an inexpensive solution for replacing lost teeth and allows our patients to smile with confidence and enjoy the pleasures of eating the foods they like.

Mini Implants

For those patients struggling with lower dentures that don’t stay in, we now offer Mini Implants. Mini implants are used to give rigidity and retention to lower dentures at a fraction of the cost of traditional implants. Mini Implants can be placed in one visit, and even used with existing dentures.

Emergency Treatments & Repairs

Root Canal Treatments

When teeth become infected as a result of decay, trauma or fracture, it is no longer necessary to remove them. We can disinfect and restore the teeth with Root Canal treatment and save them for many years of use.
