Improving Smile Appearances in Austin, TX
For many, improving the appearance of the smile is an immediate way to bolster self-confidence. Michael Nussbaum, DDS, offers cosmetic dentistry to anyone who wants a smile they want to show. We offer multiple treatment options to help patients better meet their ideal self-image.
A common esthetic goal of a patient is brightening discolored teeth. Whether you prefer to have your teeth whitened in our office or to take whitening trays home with you, our dentist can provide GLO® professional-grade whitening. External stains are lifted from the enamel, giving you a visibly whiter smile.
Not all stains can be lifted; some cases of discoloration happen within a tooth. Alternatively, a tooth may be structured differently enough to stand out among its neighbors, even though it is too healthy to treat with a crown. Veneers, which are thin shells of porcelain, can conceal these affected areas and give you a bright and uniform smile.
Smaller cavities can be treated with a filling, restoring the tooth’s structure to its original health. Traditionally, these fillings would be made of amalgam. While strong, this metal mixture poses several health and cosmetic concerns for our patients. Composite fillings, on the other hand, are made from a material that matches the color of the teeth, is hypoallergenic, and does not contain mercury.
Zirconia Crowns and Porcelain Bridges
Crowns rebuild teeth worn down by tooth decay and injury. If one or more adjacent teeth are lost, a traditional fixed bridge can replace them. When Dr. Nussbaum provides these, he makes them out of zirconia and porcelain. These materials are durable and are indistinguishable from the natural teeth in your smile.
Dental implants are one of the most durable and comprehensively beneficial options for replacing lost teeth. They are also among the most attractive restorations. A porcelain prosthetic is hosted on an artificial tooth root. The appearance and health of the remaining teeth are left alone, and your new teeth look as natural as possible.
