E. Griffin Cole, DDS, NMD
Rating: 5 Veneers Austin - 5 Star Reviews

Having experienced several dentists in my life - to include military dentists; or, were they trainees?? In any event, it is very difficult to overstate when offering praise for Griffin Cole's work, his staff. He is a journeyman...a master, really. An excellent staff and the highest standard of care are immediate impressions one can expect upon their first visit. Furthermore, those standards are maintained consistently over time, they don't fade. I believe I can say as much about his excellent care since my wife and I have been going for several years.

I have moved my two daughter's dental care to his establishment, notwithstanding the fact that we live in Cedar Park... We are delighted to have found a dentist who represents what we should all expect to receive from our health care providers, regardless their chosen discipline: respect and care for the individual and a noticeable passion for their work, and Dr. Cole is all of that.

My personal experience has been that I do not dread the trip to the dentist's office, quite the contrary. Definitely a 5 star experience, every time.
Cosmetic Dentistry Austin - Before and After

Dr. Cole works hard to make sure that the most beautiful smiles are also the most natural looking. We don't want your smile to look like it has been manufactured.
Cosmetic Dentistry is really any procedure that creates a beautiful, pleasing result. White composite fillings, all-ceramic crowns, beautifully crafted porcelain veneers, and zirconium implants, are examples of cosmetic treatments we offer in our practice. Our focus is always to enhance smiles to their most beautiful state. Your smile may be improved in a number of ways. Often, a minor alteration (such as recontouring a chipped tooth or a bonding correction) can make a world of difference. We love seeing how the cosmetic services we perform can dramatically improve a patient’s level of self-confidence!

In many practices, cosmetic dental treatments tend to transform the smile to such an extent that it looks manufactured. Dr. Cole is very particular about the manner in which he performs cosmetic procedures. Although we offer a variety of services, the underlying goal remains the same: to produce results that look truly natural. A beautiful smile does not have to include “block-white” (Chiclet) teeth. An excellent result happens when the dentistry lives in harmony with the rest of the face, as well as the patient’s unique complexion.

Whether we are brightening a smile or correcting an imperfection, we want the result to look completely natural. Success to us is when our patients receive compliments from their friends and loved ones on how they look, without being able to only notice new teeth. “Wow! You have a gorgeous smile!” is success. “Hey, you got your teeth done!” is failure.

Cosmetic Fillings

Dr. Cole is an Austin dentist with over two decades of experience in cosmetic smile enhancement. One of the most frequently used aesthetic services is cosmetic fillings. Since we are a mercury-safe dental office, we do not place amalgam fillings. Instead, cavities are repaired with tooth-colored composite resin fillings, which are far more attractive and much safer for you and the environment.

Composites, as well as porcelain, may also be used to fabricate tooth-colored restorations such as inlays, onlays, and crowns. Some patients may also wish to have restorations made from gold. When restoring teeth with gold restorations, Dr. Cole utilizes the highest gold content material available (it is important to note that all gold alloys contain other metals), and has had wonderful, long lasting results from this treatment.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is offered as a smile enhancement similar to veneers. In fact, dental bonding can often be used in direct veneer treatment. This is accomplished by placing composite material directly to the tooth or teeth. Conventional porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are indirect restorations that are designed and created by highly skilled ceramists in a dental laboratory. Although the laboratory veneers are superior to the in-office ones, not every person is best served with lab-created porcelain veneers. When dental bonding is the preferred treatment, Dr. Cole uses an artistic eye and a great deal of technical skill to create the most natural-looking tooth structure. Bonding material is molded to a tooth or teeth to achieve the ideal shade, proportion, size, and shape. Before it is cured with a special light, composite resin material is shaped with the perfect angles to reflect light just like natural enamel.

Teeth Whitening

Today, there are more choices for teeth whitening than is necessary. In our office, patients benefit greatly from the original (research supported) teeth whitening process first used years ago. Tray whitening, where patients wear custom-fitted mouth trays containing a carbamide peroxide solution, can begin in our office with the professional, supervised application of a safe, low-percentage whitening gel. Patients are then supplied with custom-fitted whitening trays and gel solution to use at home to achieve their individual desired result. There is no need to undergo expensive laser whitening or light-activated treatments to remove years of stains for a brighter smile. Lasers are no more effective, and can often be potentially dangerous and harmful. Research has shown that the fancy lights other offices use in their bleaching processes serve as nothing more than a sales tool. We can help you uncover your pearly whites in a safe, effective, and proven way.

    Dr Griffin Cole

    I couldn't be happier with my experiences so far. I have never been comfortable in a dentist office and have been embarrassed about how poorly I've taken care of my teeth. I have felt like a family friend with everyone in the office since I first showed up at their door. Their bedside manner is a 10! I love the fact that they are holistic and do everything they can to ensure I get the best and safest treatments possible. I will likely continue to go to them even if I relocate out of the state. Thank you, Dr. Cole, and staff for helping me- I can not fully express my gratitude.
