Laser Dentistry and Laser Periodontal Treatment

We're excited to announce that our Dental Hygienist is now certified to perform Laser Periodontal and other treatments. In our Austin & Lakeway Dental office we've been using a soft tissue laser to perform various procedures like laser gum contouring for gummy smiles, cosmetic gum procedures, and frenectomy procedures for braces/orthodontic treatment. Now we're offering laser treatment for the following:
•Treating of Aphtous Ulcers and Herpetic Lesions
•Reducing bacteria associated with gum disease and helping sterilize the gum pockets after periodontal treatment
The laser helps get rid of the bacteria that causes gum disease so it helps with better healing and better results of our gum/ periodontal treatments. For fever blisters or ulcers it helps speed up the healing time and helps reduce the irritation.
For gum treatments it also helps prevent post operative soreness and bleeding.
Call 512-263-8337 to find out more about this great technology.

One visit crowns and Dental Anesthetic Reversal

Hate having that numbing feeling after going to the dentist? Well there is a new product called Oraverse that shortens the amount of time that your numb after visiting the dentist!

Hate having to wear a temporary crown for a few weeks while your permanent crown is being made? There's a solution for that as well. CEREC is a computerized milling machine that allows us to make your permanent porcelain crown here in the office. Which means that we can place it permanently the same day as well! It also uses digital imaging technology so not only no messing with a temporary crown, but no messy impressions of your teeth. Check out some before and after pics of a CEREC crown and a resin filling we used to replace some old silver fillings.
