Why Choose Austin Smile Creations?
Many reasons. Most often patients find us when they are tired of quick-fixes that have been done over the years and simply don't work. Sometimes, the extent of their dental problems is so profound and complex that they know they need lots of work and need to go to ten different specialists to get anything done. Our Austin dentist Dr.Gotun brings it all together in one place and works with every patient individually to help them resolve all their issues and create a healthy smile for life. We can perform all aspects of dentistry and help plan all treatment from both financial and time point of view, as well as save you both. We can combine many specialized treatments into one appointment, which is unique, because it is like having several dental specialists working on you at the same time. This makes the process of treatment faster, more predictable and the outcomes better. We truly believe that we offer the best value in modern dentistry, while going out of our way to ensure the patient's comfort.
At our Austin dental practice you do not just get a pretty smile. Here we help you achieve a healthy natural smile that is uniquely yours that will last you a lifetime. We use cutting-edge technology, the best, verified and trusted techniques, methods and materials, distilled by 30 years of outstanding experience and excellence in dentistry, to ensure the most successful results. We rely on in-depth diagnostics to find true causes and solutions to problems. We do thorough long-term treatment planning with your occlusion ( bite) and anatomy in mind to make sure your investment doesn't just look good for a while, but looks good and functions properly for life.
Tor Gotun is by far the finest and most professional Dentist I have ever been to and I am very fortunate to have found my way to his office. I have been under his watchful care for approximately 9 years. His office staff is second to none and I love the fact that I never have to wait when I arrive for my appointment. What a concept!! Dr. Gotun does it all and always does it extremely well. I like not being referred out to other specialists. My teeth and mouth (very small) have been a challenge since I was a child and Austin Smile Creations has been by far the best in dealing with all the issues.

NEW PATIENTS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, OUR POLICIES.
Read what people are saying about us.
If you are reading this testimonial, I assume you are looking to alleviate pain in one or more of your teeth or to improve your smile cosmetically. Either way you can save yourself some time, stop right now and go make an initial evaluation appointment with Dr.Gotun and his staff at their cozy, comfortable office with a relaxing peaceful view of Eanes Creek. You can search the 1200 or more listings in the Austin area and the BEST you could hope for would be to find another dentist equally as skilled and talented as Dr.Gotun. I do NOT think it is possible to get BETTER quality dental work than what you will get at this office.
The one thing that made everything so simple for me was the photographs. During the initial exam Dr.Gotun takes a series of photographs of your teeth along with x-rays. You then get to see your teeth on a laptop screen, in color, up close and larger than life. If you can live with what you see then you can count your blessings and Dr.Gotun will let you be on your way, unless of course you would like to schedule a cleaning!
In my case I could see the damage, decay and buildup from many years of poor oral hygiene and neglect. In addition to the problem teeth that brought me to the dental office I could easily see that most of my teeth were in need of some type of restoration work. Dr. Gotun has my permission to show all of my records to anyone interested in seeing them. I am sure you will be as amazed as I still am at what Dr. Gotun was able to accomplish considering the very poor condition my teeth were in at the start of the process.
The cost was substantial in my case due to amount of work that was required. However, the work was spaced out over several years which made the cost much easier to budget. Dr.Gotun was not on my dental insurance plan, so I accessed some savings and my credit to finance the work and paid it off like any other significant asset I have purchased. My teeth are the most rewarding investment I have ever made.
If I could give anyone one bit of advice other than my story, it would be “do NOT let dental insurance be the major factor that guides your decision-making”. I was never happy with any of the experiences or results I had when I tried to use the dentists that were covered under my plan. I am proof that 12 years on with regular flossing and brushing, the investment in your restoration work done by Dr.Gotun can still be yielding satisfaction and compliments from friends and random strangers.
I have never gone to bed without flossing and brushing after seeing those photographs in my initial visit. Good luck and I hope to be reading your success story here sometime in the future.
Dr. Tor Gotun probably saved my life and he's added some years to it. You don't usually say that about your dentist, but I believe it in my case.
More than 10 years ago, after many years of neglecting my teeth and an unhealthy life style, I went to Tor, my neighborhood dentist, even though he wasn't on my State of Texas dental insurance network.
I soon learned of the challenges to getting my gums and teeth back to a healthy status. The way Tor explained it, I knew it was complex and that Tor had the skills and vision to get me there, as long as I did my part. I also knew it would take time and not be cheap.
Now, years later, I still have most of my original teeth and only a few very nice, state-of-the art crowns. I am following Tor's advice for taking care of my teeth and gums, including his regular cleaning schedule. What my dental insurance didn't cover, I was able to use Austin Smile Creations' association with Care Credit to finance the costs without any interest charges as long as I pay off balances within a year of each charge.
By the way, we had only one procedure that didn't work out as planned, but Tor made good on it and the solution turned out as good or better.
As a bonus, all of Tor's top flight members are both professional and personable, always considerate of my needs, interests, and schedule.
Bottom line, Tor is better than my expectations. He pays attention to more than just how my mouth looks; he's concerned about my overall health and how my life-style affects, and is affected by, the health of my teeth and gums.
I have been going to Dr. Gotun since he used to have his practice on William Cannon Drive ( 20 years now). Now he is located in Bee Caves. He is an excellent dentist.
The thing I like best about Tor Gotun is he is relatively pain free when administering his shots to numb your mouth. Dentists I have had before always seemed to be a bit heavy handed in this activity.
He is very up to date with modern dental technology. He can make a crown or cap in his office at the moment of your appointment and have you leave with a fully functioning mouth. I have friends who use other dentists who must wander the city of Austin for at least a week with a hollowed out molar stuffed with gauze as they await their topping to arrive by mail to their dentist's office.
The staff is very friendly, and Dr. Gotun will never talk down to you. He is very good at explaining why he is doing something or why he wants to do a procedure. He may have gotten two of my wisdom teeth, but I will still try to hold onto the remaining two regardless of his explaining the safety factors of hanging on to them as you get older.
