Teeth Whitening in Austin Tx

Having a whiter, brighter smile can do wonders! Did you know that getting your teeth whitened by laser whitening or porcelain veneers can take years off your smile? Did you also know that when Hollywood actors get a role in which they're playing someone older they work on staining their teeth. And if they're playing a role where they're supposed to be younger the first thing they do is whiten their teeth! Improving discolored teeth literally can take years off some one's face. We've seen it over and over where either by teeth whitening, porcelain veneers for a full smile makeover, or even just fixing one or a few front teeth, can just transform a smile! Call Austin & Lakeway Dentist - Tejas Patel DDS if you have questions about improving your smile at 512-263-8337.

4 reasons you should use your Dental Benefits before the end of 2011

Did you know that you could actually save hundreds of dollars by using your dental benefits before the end of the year? If your dental insurance plan is on a calendar year, these 4 reasons will show you why you should make a dental appointment now.
1. Yearly Maximum
The yearly maximum is the most money that the dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within one full year. This amount varies by insurance company, but the average is around $1,000 per year, per person. The yearly maximum usually renews every year (on January 1 if your plan is on a calendar year). If you have unused benefits, these will not rollover.
2. Deductible
The deductible is the amount of money that you must pay to your dentist out of pocket before your insurance company will pay for any services. This fee varies from one plan to another however the average deductible for a dental insurance plan is usually around $50 per year. Your deductible also starts again when your plan rolls over.
3. Premiums
If you are paying your dental insurance premiums every month, you should be using your benefits. Even if you don’t need any dental treatment, you should always have your regular dental cleanings to help prevent and detect any early signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and other dental problems.
4. Dental Problems Can Worsen
By delaying dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and expensive treatment down the road. What may be a simple cavity now, could turn into a root canal later. Call your dentist and schedule an appointment to use those benefits.
Dr Patel's office and dental clinic work with various insurances and will help you maximize your insurance benefits. Dr Patel's office also offers monthly payments with your good credit to help you complete your dental treatment. Visit www.lakewaysmiles.com for more information or call Dr Patel's Lakeway & Austin Office at 512-263-8337.

Services provided at our office

We offer a multitude of services and procedures here at our Austin & Lakeway dental office. Here's some examples of some of the patients that we get to help out. We had a patient that wanted to replace all of the silver fillings on their mouth, we were able to replace all of the old amalgam fillings with resin or tooth colored fillings since her older fillings were smaller. For another patient, they had a similiar situation, but the old silver fillings had cracked and weakened the tooth and the old fillings took up more than half of the tooth. In this case we were able to do porcelain crowns that looked natural and are very durable. For a family that we see, we saw the parents and their kids and took care of their basic dental checkups and cleanings. For some other patients we completed Zoom Teeth whitening which is a great and easy way to get whiter teeth. For another patient, they wanted the gaps closed between some of their teeth and other teeth straightened so we started the Invisalign process. We also have many patients come to use because they're scared of the dentist and come to us for sedation dentistry. We have many patients that have missing teeth that we help with dental implants and denture services....And finally we have many patients who come to us that are unhappy with their smiles and want a great long term permanent solution. For many of these patients we used porcelain veneers to improve their smile and help them get the smile that they've always wanted. Visit out before and after section of our website to see more!

Replacing old silver fillings





Replacing old silver fillings is a procedure that we perform here at Dr Tejas Patel's office routinely. Many times there are concerns with old silver fillings as they tend to weaken teeth and eventually can cause teeth to fracture. Also, if the edges of the filling are sealed, that is a concern as well as if there is cavities or tooth decay around or below the silver filling. Here are some before and after pictures of silver fillings that were replaced with new resin based tooth colored fillings. Visit www.lakewaysmiles.com for more information on replacing your old silver fillings or updating your old dental work. Dr Patel is a Family and Cosmetic Dentist in Austin Tx and Lakeway Tx.

Laser Dentistry and Laser Periodontal Treatment

We're excited to announce that our Dental Hygienist is now certified to perform Laser Periodontal and other treatments. In our Austin & Lakeway Dental office we've been using a soft tissue laser to perform various procedures like laser gum contouring for gummy smiles, cosmetic gum procedures, and frenectomy procedures for braces/orthodontic treatment. Now we're offering laser treatment for the following:
•Treating of Aphtous Ulcers and Herpetic Lesions
•Reducing bacteria associated with gum disease and helping sterilize the gum pockets after periodontal treatment
The laser helps get rid of the bacteria that causes gum disease so it helps with better healing and better results of our gum/ periodontal treatments. For fever blisters or ulcers it helps speed up the healing time and helps reduce the irritation.
For gum treatments it also helps prevent post operative soreness and bleeding.
Call 512-263-8337 to find out more about this great technology.

Dental Implants Austin, Tx- Lakeway Before and after Photos by Implant ...


Here's a link to a before and after video on dental implants. Our patients went from missing teeth to getting teeth replacements!
What a difference that dental implants can make! From closing spaces, to getting teeth back that can help with chewing, there are so many benefits! Dental Implants are great as well because they are fixed into place and don't need to be removed. They're a great permanent replacement for a single missing tooth, to several missing teeth, or a whole row of missing teeth.
Dental implants are also a great option for teeth that are severely broken or infected that can't be saved.

Here's a before and after of a patient who received Snap On Smile. The Snap On Smile will be a great temporary smile solution while our patient is in the process of completing their dental care. Snap On Smile is a great interim solution for missing teeth, after implant surgery, to give you a preview of a smile makeover, and with making teeth appear bigger and closing spaces between smaller teeth.
