Implant Dentistry Austin

Austin Dental Implants: The Next Best Thing to Your Natural Teeth

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants offer you the closest alternative to the real thing available. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth and mini dental implants can even support dentures. If you want to know more about this area of restorative dentistry and / or find out if dental implants are the right option for you, Austin, TX-based Broberg and Tieken Dental would be pleased to help you explore this option.

The Basics of Dental Implants

Dental implants are an advanced area of dentistry but the basics are that a post and crown combination serve as the tooth, offering you a permanent option that is functional for chewing and talking and that looks absolutely beautiful when smiling.

Dental implants are generally done over two appointments and while there is healing time involved as the post fuses to your jaw (Osseo integration) and specific instructions to maximize their chances of success, the process isn’t as arduous as you might think. We work closely with patients to understand what’s involved and would be pleased to offer you a consultation to explore this option for you.

Some Things You Should Know About Implants Dentistry

Dental implants are permanent, offering many advantages over dentures that periodically need to be re-lined and replaced. Dental implants work great as a replacement for a missing, broken, or severely decayed tooth. Unlike dentures, they don’t slip and slide, don’t limit the types of food you eat, and they are as easy to care for as natural teeth. No adhesives and no worries about getting caught without your teeth!

In order to support dental implants, you need adequate jaw bone. For this reason, it’s ideal to replace missing teeth as soon as possible after losing them. If you don’t have adequate jaw bone, bone grafts may be recommended.

Dental Implant Failure Prevention

When a foreign object is put into the body there is always a chance of rejection. Dental implants have a very high success rate when the dentist’s orders are followed for post-operative healing. Dr. Tieken and Dr. Broberg only recommend dental implants when you meet specific criteria and are willing to follow guidelines carefully. Following good oral hygiene and getting regular dental check-ups could result in dental implants lasting a lifetime.

Dental Implant Alternatives

When a patient is not a good dental implants candidate, Dr. Broberg and Dr. Tieken can make other recommendations that give you the benefit of a healthy-looking and functional smile. Bridges, crowns, dentures, and mini implants (implant-supported dentures) could all be good options for you to consider.

Dental Implants Costs

Costs vary depending on a variety of factors but all costs will be discussed with patients before treatment begins. Dental financing options are available in Austin for dental implants as well as other procedures that can help you get the smile you want, affordably.

Invisalign Treatment Austin

Get Invisalign in Austin: An Invisible Alternative to Metal Braces

When it comes to adult orthodontics in Austin, Invisalign is a very popular choice. Here at Broberg and Tieken Dental you can get a free consultation to help you find out whether or not Invisalign is right for you. When it comes to teeth straightening options, there are quite a few benefits of choosing Invisalign.

Invisalign Basics

What is Invisalign? Invisalign are customized removable clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth to a more desirable position. They are worn 23 hours a day and every few weeks you’ll switch them out for a new pair. Invisalign are customized for your mouth based on a plan to get your teeth from where they are today to where they will be straighter and more aligned. They offer a treatment time similar to braces with similar pricing but with a whole lot of benefits that make them preferable for teens and adults.

Invisalign Benefits

Because this alternative to metal braces involves removable clear aligners that you wear on your teeth they can be taken out. They are taken out for eating and for dental hygiene. This means that your food choices are not limited to foods that won’t get caught in metal braces and it also means that brushing and flossing is simpler than for those with metal braces because you can follow an ordinary dental hygiene regimen.

Another benefit of Invisalign is that because you switch out aligners every few weeks you aren’t sitting in an orthodontist’s chair getting painful adjustments to metal braces. Busy people appreciate simply changing out their aligners on a schedule and seeing their Austin dentist for periodic check-ups to ensure that things are on track according to their customized Invisalign treatment plan.

And speaking of metal, there is no metal involved, only clear nearly invisible aligners that fit over the teeth, which is a big selling point for many people who choose Invisalign because their teeth become straighter over time without being glaringly obvious.

Dental Crown Treatment Austin

Dental Crowns Available at Broberg and Tieken Dental in Austin, TX

Dental crowns are used in a variety of ways in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures. At the Austin dental office of Dr. Eric S. Broberg and Dr. J. Derek Tieken you can get beautiful customized crowns that enhance your smile as well as strengthen it. If you are looking for a new dentist in the Austin, TX area, we are taking on new patients and would be more than happy to offer you a smile consultation.

Dental Crown Basics

Dental crowns are sometimes referred to as tooth jewelry or dental caps. Dental crowns are very versatile in cosmetic dentistry elements with capping damaged teeth or a tooth that has had a root canal as well as used in restorative dentistry areas, such as dental implants. They are a cap designed to cover your tooth or to be added to a titanium post in the case of dental implants. Porcelain crowns are designed to fit your smile aesthetically as well as functionally.

Do I Need a Crown after a Root Canal?

A root canal is done in an effort to save a severely decayed tooth and a dental crown is the final stage of this process. Because the root canal has left you with a tooth that is, in essence, a thin shell filled with composite bonding material, a dental crown is a necessity as soon as possible otherwise the biting force of chewing will quickly result in a tooth fracture and the efforts taken to save that tooth will have been for naught.

Dental crowns are designed to seamlessly match your teeth or in some cases, are used to cap discolored teeth, so can result in a brighter and whiter smile. Whether you need dental crowns due to injury, tooth decay, or are interested in them as part of your efforts to improve the look of your smile, our Austin cosmetic dentists can offer you a gorgeous dental crown.

Porcelain Dental Veneers Treatment Austin

Get Veneers in Austin from the Dentists at Broberg and Tieken Dental

People in Austin interested in dental veneers or other smile makeover options can make an appointment with us. Doctors Broberg and Tieken are very well-versed in leveraging dental veneers in order to improve the look of your smile.

Dental Veneers Popularity in Austin, TX Rising

Why are dental veneers such a popular option for smile makeovers? Dental veneers fit onto your existing teeth (after preparation where enamel is removed and composite bonding used to attach the veneers) and they correct a number of imperfections. Whether you want them to look cleaner and whiter, more symmetrical, or to hide gaps or chips or discoloration that teeth whitening has not eliminated, this quick cosmetic dental procedure can transform your smile, usually in 1-2 appointments.

Your first appointment includes Dr. Broberg or Tieken taking impressions to order customized dental veneers in the right shape and size for your smile. At your next appointment your new veneers will be attached and our team will ensure they fit comfortably as well as review care instructions.

Dental veneers are easy to care for and with good oral hygiene habits, they can last for a decade or longer.

Alternatives to Veneers

Are you concerned about dental veneers due to their limited life span or the fact that they permanently alter your teeth? Dental veneers are considered permanent since the front of the teeth have enamel removed for the purposes of attaching the veneer. If you are concerned about this or dental sensitivity that’s sometimes seen temporarily due to veneers, alternatives can be recommended. Options to consider include no prep veneers (Lumineers) or other cosmetic dentistry alternatives, such as teeth whitening and adult orthodontic devices, such as Invisalign clear braces.

Costs and Financing Dental Veneers

Costs vary with dental veneers but we would be happy to meet with you at Broberg and Tieken Dental in Austin, TX to discuss your options. If you are interested, dental financing options are available and affordable payments could help restore your confidence as well as improve your oral health.

Tooth Whitening Treatment Austin

Teeth Whitening: Available from Austin Dentists Broberg and Tieken

Teeth whitening in Austin has become very popular, not only because of how great pearly whites look but also because there are more options for teeth whitening than ever.

When you whiten your teeth you want the results to be noticeable but you also want them to be whitened safely. There are a variety of options available: some safer and some more effective than others. By having teeth whitening done at your dentist’s office you are assured of both. Dr. J. Derek Tieken and Dr. Eric S. Broberg offer several options for teeth whitening in their Austin dental office.

Ways to Get Your Teeth Whiter

There are a variety of ways to make your teeth whiter, including:

Whitening Toothpastes: The oral care isle in the drug store and department store are filled with these options. If you have significant staining these probably won’t give you the results you are looking for.

Whitening Strips: Same as above. Whitening strips can help brighten your teeth but won’t provide dramatically brighter results, especially if you have deep staining.

As Seen on TV Teeth Bleaching Products: These may or may not be helpful in getting your teeth whiter and brighter but they also may or may not be safe for your teeth. They could damage your enamel and cause sensitivity. They could even cause irritation inside your cheeks, on your tongue, and in your gums.

Take Home Whitening Options from the Dentist: Dentists often have great products that can help you get your teeth whitened at home. They are generally stronger than drug store brands and rigorously tested for safety. Toothpastes, trays that hold whitening / bleaching gel, and whitening strips may be available.

Dental Office whitening: In-office whitening can involve safe but high-strength gels and bleaching agents as well as curing equipment that can significantly whiten during a single appointment.

Talk to us at our Austin dental office and after an assessment of your teeth Dr. Broberg or Dr. Tieken can help review your options for optimal whitening.

Teeth Whitening Alternatives

Teeth whitening can often be dramatic but in certain circumstances, it might not be enough. Alternatives to teeth whitening include: cosmetic dental bonding and dental veneers.

About Tooth Bonding for Whiter Teeth: This is often referred to as cosmetic contouring and involves composite bonding material (the same material as white dental fillings) that covers your teeth.

Dental Veneers: Veneers are nearly paper thin but strong tooth covers that adhere to the front of teeth and these not only give you the bright pearly whites you want but they also look completely symmetrical, too. Some people with stubborn tetracycline staining opt for dental veneers.
