Cosmetic Dentistry for Correcting Decay and Missing Teeth

Our top priority correcting the cosmetic flaws and discomfort that are caused by decay, damage or disease. With over 30 years of experience and 3,000 hours of continuing education, Dr. Gotun takes pride in using the most advanced and natural-looking dental materials to give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, as well as a healthy bite. Our cosmetic and restorative treatments include:

Composite Resin Fillings -  Made of materials that match your natural tooth color, these fillings are applied in a putty-like form and are then hardened and polished so that they seamlessly blend with your natural dental enamel. IF you have old silver fillings, Dr. Gortun can replace them with composite resin for a flawless, white smile.

Porcelain Crowns - Our Austin cosmetic dental office offers the highest-quality porcelain crowns, including Procera crowns, which mimic the translucency and light-reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Porcelain Inlays and Onlays - Falling on the spectrum between a filling and a crown, inlays and onlays are pieces of porcelain that replace areas of moderate tooth damage to restore the healthy appearance and function of a tooth.

Fixed Porcelain Bridges -To fill the gap left by a missing tooth, we can create a fixed bridge made of luminous porcelain restorations.

Dental Implants - Dental implants consist of a small titanium rod that acts as a new tooth root and is topped with porcelain replacement tooth to take the place of missing natural teeth. The end result is a restoration that feels and functions like your own teeth and looks just as natural.


Get a Smile that Looks Bright White and Balanced

Perhaps your teeth are in good health, but you’re not entirely happy with their natural appearance, whether your smile looks discolored, or some teeth are slightly out-of-place. Dr. Gortun offers a full spectrum of modern cosmetic treatments to perfect your smile. Many of these smile-boosting procedures are comfortable and quick, only requiring one or two office visits to complete.

Teeth Whitening - With our professional at-home teeth whitening kits, you can achieve a dramatically whiter smile from your own home, in your free time.
• Cosmetic bonding: By using a tooth-colored composite resin that is skillfully painted onto teeth, we can alter the color, shape, and size of problem teeth. The result is a smile that looks uniform and naturally beautiful.

Porcelain Veneers - These thin laminates are bonded to the fronts of the teeth and can correct the many of the same issues that bonding can. In addition, veneers can also make teeth appear straighter and are often stronger and longer lasting for larger cosmetic restoration cases. 

Tooth Reshaping - Also called dental contouring, tooth reshaping involves buffing away a small amount of enamel to alter teeth that are slightly overlapping, pointy or irregularly shaped.

Gum Contouring - Using a soft tissue laser, we can remove excess gum tissue from gummy smiles. Your new smile will display balanced amount of natural tooth enamel and soft tissue.

Clear Orthodontics - While some minor orthodontic issues, such as spacing and slight overlaps, can be corrected with veneers, Dr. Gortun can address more extensive problems – such as large gaps between teeth and more severe crowding, with invisible braces from Invisalign®.

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.
