+ CEREC One-day Crowns

CEREC by Sirona Dental Systems is the world's first system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC at your dentist's side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay or veneer! For you, the patient, this means fewer injections, less drilling and less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.

+ Laser Gum Therapy

Dr. Gardner is proud to offer the PerioLase Laser. Similar to what LASIK did for eye problems, this patented and FDA cleared laser therapy allows him to treat periodontal patients with a minimally invasive breakthrough procedure. If you're like millions of other Americans, you could be one of more than 75% of Americans who have periodontal disease, the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Until now, gum disease often meant surgery and sutures. But today, our office offers LANAP™ Laser Gum Therapy. You can feel confident knowing Dr Gardner provides world-class technology and care.

+ Nobel Implants

Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Nobel implants provide comfort, convenience and confidence. Nobel implants are fully functional and they give a natural looking smile which lasts a lifetime.

+ Braces

The benefits of orthodontic treatment often go beyond the obvious physical changes of an improved bite and straighter teeth; it’s also a great way to improve a person’s overall self-image. While having beautiful straight teeth is important, even more important is the need to alleviate any potential health problems associated with the teeth or jaw. Crooked teeth or jaw problems may contribute to improper cleaning of teeth, leading to tooth decay and, possibly, gum disease or total tooth loss. Orthodontic problems that go untreated can lead to chewing and digestion difficulties, speech impairments, and abnormal wear of tooth surfaces. Over time, excessive strain on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth can affect the jaw joints leading to problems such as headaches or face and neck pain.

+ Invisalign

Invisalign is an invisible solution. So you won’t draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.

+ Zoom Whitening

The Zoom2! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe effective and very fast. In just under an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom2! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom2! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy patient.
