Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment available today and we are happy to offer this service at Gardner Springs Dentistry. The first step is to spend some time talking to you about your expectations and goals. 

For your convenience, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening options. Both are effective, and the one you choose is mostly a matter of personal preference. As dental professionals, we can prescribe a concentrated whitening gel that is stronger than anything you can purchase over-the-counter. We will custom fit your whitening trays using impressions of your teeth. This allows the gel to cover the surfaces of your teeth evenly for consistent whitening. 

If you’d like more information about the beautiful results we can help you achieve with professional teeth whitening, please give us a call!

Dental implants may seem new, but they’ve actually been used successfully for over 25 years. So you may have heard or read about implants, but don’t understand what makes them different from other types of tooth replacement.

The biggest difference between dental implants and other types of tooth replacement is that implants are not just another cosmetic solution for a missing tooth. Dental implants actually replace your entire missing tooth, including the root!

The implant is a tiny titanium post that is placed surgically in your jaw bone by Dr. Gardner and then allowed to heal. The implant gradually bonds with surrounding bone and tissue and becomes a permanent part of your jaw.

Implants restore the appearance of your smile, but have other benefits as well. First, when your natural root is intact, it keeps your jawbone healthy. When the tooth and root are lost, the jawbone gradually breaks down. Because the implant acts as a replacement root, your jawbone stays healthy.

When the root is missing, adjacent teeth can also start to change position over time. This can cause other teeth to move out of alignment, causing crowding and issues with your dental bite. The design of a dental implant prevents this problem.

If you would like to learn more about how dental implants work and how they can benefit you, please contact our Boerne dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation.
