Technology Meets Neighborhood Dentistry

Carlton Dental keeps a keen eye out for developments that can improve the dentistry we provide and that make your visits more comfortable. Our digitally based office keeps your information secure and your records accessible for quick comparisons over time. Comforts like nitrous oxide sedation can soothe our anxious patients who would rather explore Oregon’s hills and valleys than spend time in the dental chair.

Convenience Is Important

We work with most insurance companies and file claims on your behalf so that you can avoid the red tape involved in paperwork. We ask for your co-pay at the time of service and have payment plans to meet your budget. We look after your wellbeing, not just your teeth, and will help you find financial solutions to keep you healthy.

Dentistry For Every Smile

Many patients come through our door who have avoided the dentist in the past because of a negative experience or financial concerns. You will never feel guilty when you are with us. Our entire staff understands that life happens, and our focus is on getting you healthy again.

You can feel secure that we will provide leading-edge dentistry for every member of your family.

Dr. Leif Gambee provides the type of comprehensive care that helps your family have comfortable, beautiful smiles for a lifetime.


“Staff demonstrates great customer service skills. Remember your name and check you in as soon as you come through the door. The dentists are very personable and professional. The office is always clean with good music.”

Cosmetic Dentistry

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?


Not necessarily. We offer all types of cosmetic dentistry procedures in our Carlton, OR dental office. Some are simple and made for any budget, while others are complex and require a greater investment. The point to keep in mind is that your smile is part of your identity, and while quality care incurs costs, finding and experiencing the best cosmetic dentist in Carlton, OR, as Dr. Leif Gambee will result in the most excellent value.


Cosmetic Dentistry Options

If you are exploring cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile, we have options. Teeth whitening and dental bonding are simple and affordable. Teeth whitening can take years off of your smile, and dental bonding fills chips and gaps that negatively impact the teeth.

For patients who want dental implants, dental crowns, and teeth veneers, we can help you fit your cosmetic dentistry into your budget by phasing out treatment or choosing a financing option that allows you to complete your dentistry all at once but pay it off over time. Many options offer interest-free payment terms.


Learn More

Don’t let concerns over the cost of cosmetic dentistry stop you from having a consultation to discuss your options. You might be surprised to learn how affordable it is to have a smile you feel proud of. A gorgeous smile can be with you for the rest of your life. Contact our dentist in Carlton Oregon dental office to discuss cosmetic dentistry options best for you. 

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Do I really need a dental crown?


If your dentist has recommended a dental crown and you’re not sure why you are welcome to come in for an evaluation and second opinion. If Dr. Leif Gambee recommended a dental crown and you want to know if other options are available, give us a call.


Situations Where We Might Recommend a Dental Crown

  • Deep decay
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Root canal-treated teeth
  • Cosmetic purposes
  • Worn or short teeth
  • To replace large fillings

Dental crowns provide protection that goes beyond what a filling can provide. Fillings seal teeth after Dr. Gambee fills a cavity, while dental crowns completely encase teeth and absorb the force caused by chewing.


If we are replacing an old metal filling, Dr. Gambee might recommend a crown because amalgam fillings can make teeth unstable, causing cracks and secondary decay over the years.


When other options exist, Dr. Gambee will explain all of your options. Your dentistry is your choice to make, and we will respect that you get to choose.


When you do opt for a dental crown, you can count on a restoration that looks and feels natural. Porcelain comes in many colors and shades to complement your smile.

Dental Implants

How long does it take to get a dental implant?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. We proudly provide dental implants in our Carlton dental office as the gold standard for missing teeth.

Choosing a dental implant is almost like having your tooth back again because, with the proper home and professional dental care, your dental implant can potentially last a lifetime. 


As far as a timeline, you can count on about 3-6 months to complete the entire process. If you smoke, need bone grafting, or have underlying dental conditions, it might take longer to complete.


We promise that your dental implant will be worth the wait. Our patients rave about their results because of their many benefits.


Eat your favorite foods

– You don’t have to avoid steak, vegetables, or fruits when you have a dental implant. It works just like your natural tooth. It is still a good idea to avoid chewing ice, which can break dental implants and natural teeth alike.


Your dental implant will not move

– Because dental implants fuse with your natural bone, they will not fall or shift like dentures. They can be used to secure dentures in place.


They look like your teeth

– When you smile, no one will notice you have a dental implant. Dr. Gambee will precisely match your implant to the shade of nearby teeth.
