More durable than bonding, a porcelain veneer is an excellent method of permanently restoring chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. We’re proud to be a leading provider of porcelain veneers in Austin, offering our patients strong, durable, and attractive solutions. A wafer-thin layer of strong porcelain is applied to one or more teeth to repair, reshape, or whiten your smile. Veneers can even repair small gaps and spacing issues, and can provide a permanent, stain-free alternative to professional whitening treatments.
Dental bonding is a fast, inexpensive, and simple method of restoring damaged or decayed teeth. Tooth-colored material is bonded to the affected tooth to fix small chips, gaps, discoloration, and more. There’s no drilling, and it’s safe for kids and teens as well as for adults.
CEREC Crowns & Bridgework
Dental crowns are a durable and permanent solution to damaged or missing teeth. They are specially-shaped and colored to be indistinguishable from natural teeth, and function just like a normal tooth. Multiple tooth repair is possible thanks to bridgework, which replaces more than one tooth at once with minimal implants and as little invasive work as possible.
Today’s modern fillings are more durable than ever and can be made from a wide variety of materials. From subtle porcelain or composite fillings to high-durability amalgam or cast gold varieties, fillings are quicker and easier to place than ever before, and help to strengthen a tooth that’s been plagued by cavities and decay.
Oral Cancer Screenings
When it comes to any cancer, early detection is critical. Oral cancer is no exception, but is typically not caught until its later stages. Our oral cancer screenings are fast, comfortable, and provide our patients with peace of mind. Typically, these examinations are no more involved than a regular dental exam, and any abnormal regions in the mouth, lips, and tongue can be promptly sent for laboratory analysis.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease Therapy
Did you know that gum disease can spread and cause damage – or even loss- to surrounding teeth? During a regular dental exam, we screen for bacterial gum disease to determine if treatment is needed to protect your mouth and teeth for years to come. Treatments can include deep cleaning, gum grafting, laser treatment, implants, and more.
Professional Teeth Cleanings
The very best way to keep your teeth and mouth healthy is through diligent, daily oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing. But to ensure your best oral health, regular professional dental cleanings can help to deeply clean and protect your mouth in a way that isn’t possible with brushing and flossing alone. Our professional teeth cleanings involve the removal of tough plaque and tartar followed by a thorough polish.
Dentures don’t just provide patients with partial or complete new sets of teeth. They improve self-esteem and speech, reestablish facial contours and alignment, and restore the ability to chew and acquire proper nutrition. Removable dentures can replace multiple or full sets of teeth, and can adhere to the gum line either by suction and adhesion or stabilized by implant supports.
Kids are prone to cavities. And their back molars often contain crevices and grooves that are perfect hiding spots for food and bacteria. Combined with the fact that before their permanent teeth erupt children’s teeth are more prone to decay, you have a recipe for cavities. Sealants are an excellent and simple solution wherein the dentist fills and coats these hard-to-reach areas in kids’ teeth with an invisible plastic resin, protecting them against cavities.
We’ve all dreamed of a brighter, more dazzling smile. Over time, teeth can lose their vibrancy and begin to fade or stain. Certain foods and drinks, such as coffee or red wine, can speed this process along. Professional whitening treatments are safe and effective, and can be performed in-office or even at your own home. Teeth whitening in Austin through a licensed dentist are much safer and more effective than those found elsewhere, and can brighten your smile up to eight shades in just one office visit.
TMD stands for Temporomandibular Disorders, although the term is often confused with the term for the TMJ (the jaw joint itself). TMD is characterized by pain or clicking in the jaw, along with possible restricted jaw movement or ear pain. Treatments can include dietary changes, heat or ice, stretching exercises, NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen), orthodontics, and more.
Emergency Dental Treatment
Our helpful providers and staff understand that dental emergencies are stressful. That’s why we are proud to offer emergency dental services in Austin for non-life-threatening dental emergencies like chips or cracks in teeth, a knocked out tooth, or other dental trauma for all ages. For any dental injury, timing is very important to save all or part of a tooth, so in the event of such an incident, contact our office right away for assistance.
