Crowns and Bridges

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


Have you ever gone to the dentist and couldn't wait to go back? That's how I feel after my first visit with Dr. Cole. He respectfully meets you at your comfort level regarding biological dentistry. He was able to answer all my concerns and willingly gave me his best advice even though it made him less money.

I've been to several biological dentist in several cities, but he by far my favorite. They don't accept insurance, but give you a nice form ready to mail yourself. The staff is amazing as well, very, very, nice and friendly.
Crowns and Bridges Austin - Before and After
From routine care to teeth restoration, we handle each case with the utmost attention.
Teeth that have been damaged by cavities or injury require professional repair. When a mercury-free filling is insufficient for optimal restoration, Dr. Cole may use an inlay, onlay, or dental crown to recreate the natural structure necessary for a functional, attractive smile.

Dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of a tooth, whereas inlays and onlays cover various portions of the chewing surface. Each of these restorations may be crafted from materials ranging from gold to high quality porcelain. Early dentists designed beautiful crowns from high quality gold, and this material still offers excellent benefits today.

Though Dr. Cole offers metal-free options for dental restorations, gold is an exception in some cases. This material is known to result in some of the most durable, longest lasting restorations due to its natural characteristics of strength and overall form. In situations where patient and doctor decide that gold is the optimal material for restorative care, a customized crown is special ordered and made by our dental lab ceramist to contain the highest gold content possible.

Many people today are accustomed to cosmetic restorations using tooth-colored materials, which are also available in our practice. Tooth-colored crowns are ideal for areas of high visibility. The base material from which our dental crowns are fabricated is zirconium, which is highly compatible with natural tissues and very durable.

Dr. Cole has over twenty years of dental experience, and the background to help patients confidently choose the dental treatment that will best suit their long-term needs.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is designed to replace a missing tooth when there are natural teeth remaining on each side. There are several types of dental bridges in which Dr. Cole has expertise, including the Maryland and Cantilever styles. Fixed bridges are often preferred for their longevity. The fixed bridge is anchored on the two adjacent teeth for optimal stability, but may also be designed to gain support from dental implants so that natural teeth remain unaltered.

It is our practice to collaborate with our patients, rather than dictate which treatment options are best for their unique needs. Our goal is to help our patients keep their natural teeth as long as possible. Should it become necessary to undergo treatment with a crown or bridge, we offer solutions that produce the best possible results.

    The Best Dentist and an overall great guy!

    My wife and I found Griffin on the internet while we were looking for a Mercury Free dentist in Austin. I'm not sure if he's the only one or not, but he's the only one for us from now on. Even my wife, who absolutely hates Dr.'s offices and dentist offices, was extremely comfortable and enjoyed her visit there. No matter what questions you ask, Griffin will provide you with educated, intelligent answers to make sure YOU understand what he's doing.

    They do not take insurance, but I'd rather pay myself and not have toxic poisons (flouride & mercury) "sold" to me and put in my mouth. Most people will spend hundreds of dollars at the bars and restaurants each month, yet won't spend a dime on their own health.

    Possibly the best dentist in Austin!

    Dr. Cole is one of the best dentists in Austin if you are concerned with keeping your teeth healthy and your body free from dangerous dental toxins--esp. mercury. My husband has been going to Dr. Cole for 15 years, and I've been going for almost 10. The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful. Dr. Cole himself is generous with his time, answering all questions thoroughly. His dental work is awesome. His dental hygienist, Cindy, is also world-class! Gentle, and thorough. My husband and I are both chemically-sensitive, and his office is a safe place for us.

    AWESOME

    Dr. Cole is a great dentist who is very caring; called me after I had a few fillings done to see how I was doing. He also specializes in biological dentistry (non-mercury amalgams, biocompatible focus) so he's concerned with total health. The office is nice and so are the staff. He's top-notch!

    PROS: biological dentistry, whole health, excellent care

    CONS: none

    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.

    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.

    We have been going to Griffin for several years now and are very happy. He has a mercury free office, knows about alternative health solutions and is anti-fluoride. He also uses digital x-rays which have 90% less radiation. Not cheap, but worth it.

    Dr. Cole and his staff, especially Deborah, have provided our whole family with conscientious, pro-active, caring treatment for over ten years. Our family ranges in age from 2-92, and they each receive specialized care with the safest substances - no mercury! Highly recommended - especially if you need cosmetic or restorative work and want them to look genuinely real.

    After you visit Griffin Cole, you wish that all your other medical appointments were like this. He's something like the character of Wayne Jarvis on Arrested Development - PROFESSIONAL. He's so professional it's almost funny. Before you go sit in "the chair" you sit down in a nice office and talk about what's going on. He listens and gets all the details and lays out what needs to be done. Then he does it, and he's always PROFESSIONAL. Seriously Great dentist. If you are having complicated or "scary" work done, he is especially the guy you want to see.

    Dr Cole is the best dentist my wife and I have ever been to. He has helped her deal with issues from titanium implants (she was allergic to titanium and no one tested her prior to installing the implants - very bad decision for us). He just helped me with a chipped tooth that probably needs a root canal. And he and his staff have been excellent to work with for the past 6 years.

    Dr. Cole is a beacon of light in a sea of Austin dentists- one of the few in town that values holistic dentistry over the other kind that seems content to shove dangerous chemicals in your mouth, and then charge you for it. I went to Dr. Cole's office this week after a small composite filling fell out of one of my tooth this past month. It wasn't a big hole that was left behind, but I am sensitive to radiation and wary of going to a dentist that requires a full examination before they will even touch your teeth. If you call around, most dentists will not even treat you unless you fork out for several hundreds of dollars worth of dangerous x-rays---something I am not a huge fan of. I literally couldn't schedule with a few places because they required this.
