Are you suffering from damaged, decayed, or missing teeth? Do you wear dentures and want a more stable option? At Gentling Smiles, we understand the power of a healthy smile, and we want anyone who needs it to experience the gold standard of dental restorations.
Dental implants are a remarkable way to fill the gaps in your smile, and they look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. Restore your livelihood today by scheduling an implant consultation with Dr. Gentling.
A dental implant is an exciting solution for restoring a missing tooth because it allows you to eat, laugh, socialize, and enjoy your daily activities without worrying about the health or aesthetic of your smile.
Dr. Gentling uses biocompatible titanium alloy implant fixtures which act like the roots of your natural teeth, creating a stable foundation for the rest of the implant. Using biocompatible material is crucial to the success of the implant because osseointegration — the natural process of bone bonding with the implant — requires your body accepting the foreign object so that it can heal correctly.
The only portion of the implant that anybody will see is called the crown. At Gentling Smiles, we craft our crowns from beautiful, tooth-colored porcelain, which is a durable material that can withstand the same bite forces as your natural teeth.
At Gentling Smiles, we want you to love your smile. Dental implants provide a wide range of benefits that no other restoration can match.
The benefits of dental implants include:
After your implant has healed, it’s time to start taking care of it. Even though the implant itself is immune to disease, other oral structures, such as your gums, can cause implant failure if you don’t care for them correctly.
The easiest way to take care of your smile is to stick to a hygiene routine every day which works best if it includes brushing twice a day, flossing after meals, and visiting Dr. Gentling for biannual visits.
Because dental implants are permanently attached to the jawbone, there’s no need for temporary adhesives. Maintaining your dental health is easier because the implants allow you to care for your oral health normally. Best of all, dental implants often don’t require replacement; with the right care, they can last a lifetime.

Inspired by his cousins (both pediatric dentists in Eastern, WA) and others, Dr. Gentling chose to pursue a career in dentistry, leading him to graduate with honors from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS).
