Same Day Crowns in West Lake Hills, TX - Single Visit Dental Restorations in Austin
Advancements in 3D technology and in-office dental equipment have revolutionized the way our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Tor Gotun, provides restorations for patients. At Austin Smile Creations, we use E4D technology to comfortably scan your smile and create same-day dental crowns while you wait. One-visit-crowns from our Austin dental office make restoring your smile easier than you thought possible.
Same-Day Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns
Dr. Gotun utilizes E4D’s digital scanner and chair-side milling technology to plan and create your new dental crown in-office and at one appointment. After our 3D imaging has captured precise pictures of your smile, our advanced computer software aids in treatment planning and sends information to our milling unit, where your crown is fabricated in about an hour.
Compared to traditional dental crowns, same-day restorations offer the benefits of:
No Second Appointment – One visit crowns eliminate the need for a return visit to our office and also prevent going through preliminary treatment steps again, such as applying local anesthetic. Our same-day crown patients receive complete care for damaged teeth in one visit.
No Messy Impressions – Impression trays are often patients’ least favorite part of the restorative process. Where standard impressions are bulky and messy, E4D can comfortably scan your smile and obtain detailed information about teeth with digital and non-invasive technology. Our Austin same-day crowns are perfect for patients who suffer from a sensitive gag reflex and wish to forgo impression molds.
No Temporaries – In preparation for your crown, decayed dental enamel is removed. With traditional processes, patients would receive a temporary restoration to protect their tooth while a dental lab fabricates their new crown. But E4D crowns negate the need for temporaries by supplying your permanent restoration on the spot.
Our same-day dental crowns are made from durable and beautiful restorative materials, such as all-porcelain or mixtures of porcelain, ceramic, and zirconia, based on your needs and bite alignment. By not sending part of your treatment plan to an outside dental office, we can ensure best results and color-matching. Your new crown will fit comfortably and match the rest of your smile.
Our Commitment to Quality, Same-Day Cosmetic Restorations
We use the best technology and treatments available to provide high-quality cosmetic and restorative dental services to our patients. By using E4D to create same-day dental crowns, we can ensure that our patients are comfortable during treatment, that their care is planned with precision, and that final results are customized to meet their needs. In additional to dental crowns, E4D is also capable of producing veneers and dental bridges with reduced treatment time.
Dr. Gotun’s office is your home for the best cosmetic dentistry with same-day crowns in Austin, TX. For more information about same-day dental services, contact our office for your consultation.
Testimonials from Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry Patients
" Wife and I have been clients of for 2 years. Some of our dental work done by Dr. Gotun as follows: Regular cleanings, 5 Crowns, a dozen or so old metal type fillings removed and replaced with contemporary tooth color material, tooth removal, braces, bone work preparation for implant bases (two separate areas).
Two things we have had done from other dentists which he does different - Cleanings he uses ultrasonic tooling, not manual scraper, which cleans better, saves time, and doesn't irritate our gums and teeth as much. Crowns he makes onsite so we have never needed a second visit for the same tooth, and he adjusts size, shape, contact points if necessary to not just repair a damaged tooth but improve its function (Wife no longer has head aches and I do not have jaw muscle fatigue as before).
If you need 'A' dentist go find one, If you want the BEST then call Dr. Tor Gotun because you may end up like us and connect with this truly talented Doc. that utilizes the most beneficial processes and equipment to treat your individual goals. "

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.
