"The primary focus of my dental practice is helping friends while emphasizing prevention."
Earning your trust is the most important thing that we strive to accomplish. Taking the time on the first appointment to get to know YOU and your priorities helps to open honest communications about what you want, not what we want for you. Time for a complete, thorough exam is time well spent. Setting goals, both short-term and long-term, and then implementing those goals is critical to maintaining your dental (and overall) health.
In addition to preventive maintenance and checkups, we offer emergency dental services, dental implants, bruxism (grinding) treatment, cosmetic dentistry (porcelain caps, crowns, bridges, etc...), tooth whitening and more.
Our office is located in Austin, Texas at 11645 Angus Road, Suite 10. We would love to answer your dental questions and assist you with your dental needs.
I have 4 shiny, white, natural front teeth and now smile without thinking. Looking back, my nervousness and worry was at the beginning. Once I got serious, Dr Hafernik talked with me clearly with all the detail I wanted about what the decisions were, what happens, and how he works with the Oral Surgeon and the Lab as a team. There was more to it than you’d think, and I could go on and on, but the proof is in the smile. - Laurie Frick
Porcelain Veneers provide a long-lasting smile solution! Look at this amazing before and after comparison.
Porcelain Veneers are an excellent choice to handle discolored teeth, close spaces or malpositioned teeth (“instant orthodontics”). Veneers take very careful case planning so that the end result is exactly what the patient and Dr. Hafernik BOTH want.
Though veneers require preparation of the teeth, it is much less than full crown preparation.
This is an actual case from our office.
For all practical purposes……EVERYONE bruxes. Therefore, the question is NOT whether a person does in fact brux. Rather, the better question is to what degree do they brux.
Are you getting frequent headaches? Seeing receding gums? Are your teeth sensitive or loose? You may be bruxing to a damaging degree.
Call (512) 345-5552 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hafernik to identify the problem and discuss the remedy.
