Today’s Improvements in Dentistry
There’s a new trend in dentistry these days: more people are scheduling appointments because they want to, not because they have to.
Additionally, developments that were previously unimaginable are now a reality. So, if you know someone who hasn’t been to the dentist in a while, they’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Modern dentistry is virtually painless. Technology, stress control, and some sophisticated approaches to anesthesia have all contributed to painless treatment—from cleaning and cavity preparation to root canal treatment.
Aesthetic Appearance, Functionally Strong
Today, dental procedures are now both beautiful and functional. And does it ever show in our patient’s smiles!
- Tooth whitening is a simple, inexpensive way to lighten stains and discolorations on teeth without altering the natural structure.
- Bonding can be used to rebuild tooth structure and hide imperfections. With today’s modern composite resins, there’s no limit to the cosmetic “magic” we can work on a smile. We can close gaps, reshape teeth, lengthen here, brighten there.
- Tooth-colored filling materials are getting prettier—and stronger—every day
- Implants—Though people are keeping their teeth longer and longer, part of the older population still has to deal with missing teeth. For those denture wearers who’ve always hoped for something better, dental implants can be a kind of dental rebirth.

Dr. Angela Burns moved to Austin 10 years ago and instantly fell in love with our beautiful city. Dr. Burns is originally from the Texarkana area. She attended Texas A&M for her undergraduate degree and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center for her degree in dental surgery (DDS). Dr. Burns is committed to providing her patients with gentle, technologically advanced dental treatment. She attends an average of 60 hours of continuing education every year. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Texas Dental Association, and the Capital Area Dental Society. Dr. Burns and her husband, Gary, have an 11-year-old daughter, Sydney, who is a proud 6th grader at Hill Country Middle School. She is also very involved in the Eanes PTO, her church, and loves raising her family in the Westlake community. “Growing up, I was drawn to mediating and helping others feel more included and less anxious. I was a camp counselor, student government officer and being the oldest of five, I was the family mediator. I found that I had a calling to help alleviate stressful situations for others and realized that being a good listener was something that was key to this. These skills really helped guide me into becoming a dentist that has based my practice on relationships, empathy and a sense of comfort. I knew that I wanted to provide an atmosphere that felt like home when others walked in. Our practice is small, personal and state of the art and we hope you feel like you’re hanging out with friends when you are here!” When she is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Burns enjoys traveling, hiking the greenbelt, enjoying Austin’s music scene, and eating Amy’s Ice Cream.
