Featured Services

Dentist Merrillville, IN

Bridges & Crowns

Crowns and Bridges are permanent prosthetic devices designed to cover damaged teeth or implants or to replace missing teeth. They are fitted and cemented into place by your local dentist.

Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is adhered to a tooth to repair decay, chipping, fractures, or discoloration. Bonding can also be used to change the shape of teeth or to close spaces between teeth.

Dental Cleaning & Whitening

Regular dental cleanings remove the tartar, plaque, and stains that naturally collect on and in-between teeth and gums to prevent and identify gum disease, cavity and decay. Tooth whitening removes food and debris, lightening the color of your teeth and restoring their natural shine.

Dental Implants

Dental implants help to produce the appearance and function of natural teeth. The implants create artificial roots that provide a permanent base for your replacement teeth.


Occasionally a dentist or oral surgeon will need to extract or pull, an adult tooth. Reasons for a tooth extraction include extensive damage or decay, periodontal (gum) disease, infection or the risk of infection, or to prepare an over-crowded mouth for orthodontia. Wisdom teeth removal is also a common dental procedure to prevent potential overcrowding and oral health issues.


Fillings are used to repair areas of tooth decay (or cavities), broken teeth, or cracks in teeth. Fillings can be created from several materials – gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or tooth-colored composite resin.

Root Canal

The pulp of your tooth can become inflamed or infected. A root canal is a crucial dental health procedure that removes the pulp and bacteria from the tooth, relieving pain, and repairing any damage to the tooth.


Problems with your jaw and its muscles are known as Temporomandibular Joint disorders. TMJ can cause pain or tenderness in your face, jaw, neck, shoulders, or in or around your ears when you open your mouth wide, chew, or talk.


Dental veneers are thin casings of porcelain or composite resin to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth. Veneers can improve the appearance of unsightly chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth.

Dentist Merrillville, IN

Today was a GREAT day, and my dental work is complete. My 10-year dental journey with Dr. Brucci has been life-changing, and I am forever grateful. I have had approximately 9 to 10 procedures, and throughout, Dr. Brucci made my comfort his priority, ensuring I never felt pain during and after procedures. I also adore the dental assistants. I have and will continue to refer individuals to Dr. Brucci.

Crystal H.

This dentist is by far the best i ever been to! The hours work perfectly with my schedule! The staff is so patient responsive and knowledgeable. While i was having my procedure one of the girls came in and held my hand! That was the kindest thing ever and helped with the anxiety of getting my tooth pulled.

Tanisha W.

Thank you so much Dr. Brucci for your care and concern during my last visit. I can’t thank you enough. Shelley was absolutely amazing too (as always)! She called me to see how the surgery went, how I was feeling, and even gave me her cell phone number in case I needed anything. I am so grateful to have such an amazing and caring dentist. I will always refer you to my friends and family.

Sheri B.

Jasmin H.

My latest appointment with Premier Dental was as always – GREAT. I received reminders which I appreciate. Also, I had what I thought was going to be a family emergency a couple of hours before my appointment. I called in thinking I was going to have to reschedule. Elise took my call & was so nice about the situation. While on the phone the emergency was averted & I was able to keep my appointment. Again, Elise was very nice about it and didn’t act like I was a bother or crazy! My hygienist, Katrina-as always was very thorough and personable. I actually look forward to my appointments with her.

Ernest H.

I would give you and your office a 10 as I’ve always been treated well and have been going to PREMIER DENTAL for close to 30 year. Thank you for your services.

Diane Y.

Dr. Brucci and his team totally Rock! The moment you walk into the office you’ll be greeted by a wonderful staff at the front desk with upbeat and positive attitudes. Shelly, Elise and the rest of the ladies set the tone for the warm and welcoming environment. I have never waited longer than 15 minutes in the waiting room. Dr. Brucci and my two favorite assistants, OJ and Jen, provide quality care and always make me feel comfortable and calm. Dr. Brucci is very thorough when discussing what needs to be done to improve or maintain my oral health. His staff is really good with following up after a procedure. I can say that Dr. Brucci and his team are the best! I pray he’s always around to address my dental needs. I will continue to go to him and highly recommend him and his team.

Ingrid Y.

Love this office!!! I’ve been coming here since I was little and I absolutely love them Dr Brucci is so awesome and helpful and treats you like family and not just a client…the staff is fast helpful and caring.

Raquel H.

I would recommend your practice to everyone! You all were very nice, understanding and very helpful. I was in a lot of pain with my mouth and tooth, and you guys got me in the same day and pulled it the same day. You all worked with me with payment and everything. Fantastic place!! 🙂

Breann R.

I have been going to the Premier Dental Group for over 20 years. I have been pleased with the thoroughness of the doctor, assistants, and hygienists during my visits. When going for a cleaning or dental procedure, I usually do not have to wait long. If I have to wait, I know it is because they want to give each patient the personal attention and care they deserve.

Douglas W.

I am pleasantly surprised that every time I have come there, Dr. Brucci has never said that I need to fill in the area where I have receding gums due to aggressive brushing when I was much younger. He never looks for ways to make more money, he is interested in my care and how I feel. As long as I have no pain, he isn’t looking to just do work on my teeth. His care and integrity has restored my faith in my dental care!!!

Jeanna M.

I must say I have never been any where else. Love you guys and gals!!
