As experts in cosmetic and family dentist, Dr. Holley and Dr. Duncan have taught aesthetic solutions to other dentists from around the world. They are accustomed to treating a variety of dental problems on a daily basis. A summary of the most common dental problems is provided below along with some details regarding the Dental Makeover procedures we often use to fix the problem and get the best results.
Chipped, Broken or Fractured Teeth
Chipped, broken or fractured teeth not only cause discomfort and difficulty chewing. They can look aesthetically displeasing. Depending on the severity of damage, dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or tooth bonding can be the best solution to get your smile back. If a fractured tooth goes untreated, and the fracture extends to the pulp of the tooth, this can be very painful and the tooth may require a root canal.
Crowns that are old, cracked, or unsightly due to their dark color can cause pain and difficulty chewing in addition to patient feeling uncomfortable with his or her smile. If this sounds like you, we can replace your old dental crowns using the same material, or apply porcelain crowns that will be indistinguishable from your real teeth.
Misaligned or crooked teeth can be a cause of anxiety and self-consciousness for many of our patients in the Austin area. To fix this problem there are a variety of options, including porcelain veneers.
Excessive and uneven gum lines can detract from the beauty of your smile. To fix this issue, Dr. Holley and Dr. Duncan can perform a gum recontouring procedure as a stand-alone procedure, or combine it with porcelain veneers to give you the smile you've always wanted.
Stained or discolored teeth is an extremely common problem that has a very simple solution - teeth whitening. At our office we use the Zoom! tooth whitening system as well as professional take-home Kor Whitening kits to provide our patients with exceptional tooth whitening results.
Now that there are tooth-colored filling options to replace the metal and amalgam fillings of years past, many patients request that their old, unsightly fillings be replaced with a resin or porcelain material indistinguishable from their natural teeth.
Worn teeth due to grinding or age can affect the teeth's functionality and appearance. To solve this problem, a combination of dental crown and porcelain veneers can be used. An orthotic may be necessary to protect these restorations.
