At Austin Prosthodontics, Dr. Ernesto Carmona, Jr., and our team are dedicated to helping you enjoy a higher quality of life through our advanced, high-end prosthodontic and dental services. Every treatment we provide is designed to help you maximize your oral health, cosmetically and functionally, and we take into account your personal preferences and suggestions when designing your treatment plan. Therefore, our main goal is to get to know you as a person before examining and diagnosing your oral health so we can ensure that your experience and the results of your treatment exceed your expectations.
What We Offer
With a passion for helping patients rebuild their smiles and enjoy a better quality of life, Dr. Carmona’s expertise is in creating durable and highly lifelike replacement teeth. For instance, Dr. Carmona is especially trained in prosthodontic dentistry, including the placement, restoration, and maintenance of innovative dental implants. His oral and maxillofacial expertise helps patients save significant time on their treatment plans by avoiding the need to have to visit multiple specialist offices to complete their smile restoration.
However, at Austin Prosthodontics, we also offer a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative treatment plans to help ensure the health and integrity of your smile. When possible, preserving your healthy, natural tooth structure is always preferable to replacing it. Therefore, we also emphasize protecting your smile through regular professional dental care and preventing tooth loss as much as possible. Even if you’ve lost one or more teeth, a combination of personalized prosthodontic dentistry and regular general dental care can help you prevent losing more teeth in the future.
Do You Need Prosthodontic Care?
The art of prosthodontics has evolved considerably over the last hundred years or so. For instance, dental crowns, bridges, and dentures are now crafted from highly lifelike materials, such as dental porcelain, that offer unprecedented results in appearance, strength, and functionality. Using advanced imaging and measuring technology, including digital X-rays, E4D PlanScan, and CT scans, we can craft customized replacement teeth that fit in perfectly with the size, shape, contour, and layout of your remaining healthy teeth. Your prosthetic appliance will look, feel, and function as well as your healthy teeth were meant to.
The advancement of prosthodontics also means you have more choices when it comes to rebuilding your smile. Many of our patients qualify for the placement of dental implants, which are prosthetic roots that can be inserted into your jawbone to support your dental crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implant posts are designed to mimic the roots that support your natural teeth, and as such, they are the best way to preserve the long-term health and density of your jawbone. In addition to the enhanced stabilization of your prosthesis, implant posts also stimulate your jawbone alongside your remaining teeth roots. This promotes a healthy flow of nutrients to keep your jawbone sustained and allow it to properly support your teeth.
General Dental Care
For patients who have already lost teeth and those who wish to avoid it, general dental care is an important part of maintaining and preserving your smile. From regular checkup and cleaning appointments to customized appliances for TMJ disorder, bruxism, and sleep apnea, general dentistry encompasses the routine care of your teeth, oral tissues, and more. By offering a wide range of general services, we can help you prevent most causes of tooth loss and ensure the success of your replacement teeth for much longer. We also offer a range of customizable sedation dentistry options to help make your prosthodontic, general, cosmetic, or restorative dentistry treatment more comfortable.
For routine exams, the creation of custom appliances, and the planning of cosmetic and restorative treatment, Dr. Carmona and our team utilize a variety of dental technology. In addition to our wide range of expertise, we also employ digital X-rays that produce crisp, clear, digital images almost immediately, and with up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays. Digital X-rays help Dr. Carmona better spot signs of trouble in areas of your mouth that cannot be viewed without assistance. To create precise, highly functional restorations, we also utilize the innovative E4D machine, which utilizes CAD/CAM technology to create lifelike restorations in just a single day.
