Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are used to repair cavities or minor damage to teeth. Made from a tooth-colored resin material, these fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing restorative solution.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are custom-made caps that cover and protect a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its shape, size, and function. They are typically made from materials like porcelain, ceramic, or metal and are designed to match the natural color of your teeth.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. The procedure involves removing the damaged nerve and pulp, cleaning and sealing the inside of the tooth, and then restoring it with a crown or filling.

Full and Partial Dentures

Full dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures fill in the gaps where some teeth are missing. Both types of dentures are removable and help restore the appearance and functionality of your smile.

Dental Extractions

Dental extractions involve the removal of a tooth that is damaged, decayed, or causing crowding. Extractions can be simple, involving a loose or visible tooth, or surgical, requiring more complex procedures to remove a tooth that is not easily accessible.

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery encompasses a range of procedures to address various dental issues, such as impacted teeth, jaw alignment, and facial injuries. Not every Austin dental office performs oral surgery in-house—but we do!

What’s the difference between restorative and cosmetic dentistry?

Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing and restoring the function of damaged, decayed, or missing teeth. Procedures such as fillings, crowns, and root canals aim to improve oral health and chewing ability. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, primarily enhances the appearance of your smile. Treatments like teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign® are designed to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. While there can often be overlap between the two, restorative dentistry prioritizes function and health, whereas cosmetic dentistry emphasizes appearance and aesthetic improvements.

What should I do about my tooth decay?

If you suspect you have tooth decay, it’s essential to schedule a visit with our office as soon as possible. Early treatment can prevent the decay from worsening and causing more serious issues. Our team will likely perform a dental exam and take X-rays to assess the extent of the decay. Depending on the severity, treatment options may include fluoride treatments for early-stage decay, fillings for minor cavities, or more advanced procedures like crowns or root canals for extensive decay. Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups can help keep teeth healthy and prevent future decay.

Is restorative dentistry expensive?

The cost of restorative dental services can vary widely depending on the type and extent of treatment needed. Dental insurance often fully or partially covers restorative procedures that are deemed necessary, which can help reduce out-of-pocket expenses. Additionally, our office also accepts FSAs, HSAs, Lending Point, and CareCredit™ payment plans. We are also happy to work with patients and create flexible, in-house payment plans as well.
