Comprehensive Care in a Convenient Location
We are proud to provide comprehensive dental care in one convenient location. Because our dentists have advanced training in many areas of dentistry, they can meet a wider range of dental needs. When you first visit Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, you will undergo a thorough consultation and exam involving a dental checkup, periodontal assessment, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) evaluation, and bite analysis. This will allow your dentist to identify dental problems and develop a customized treatment plan. We are equipped to meet your every need, from routine cleanings to smile makeovers. In addition, we can provide complete implant treatment, which includes advanced preparatory procedures like bone grafting and sinus lifts.
Our dentists are also happy to work with patients who have particularly challenging cases. Regardless of the condition of your smile, we can provide the treatments you need to restore health, beauty, comfort, and overall health. We also handle emergency situations including severe dental infections and knocked-out teeth.

Committed to Your Comfort
Your health and comfort are our top priorities, and we want to make your dental care as pleasant as possible. We will explain each procedure in detail and work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. We will never rush treatment, and will make certain that you are comfortable with your dental plan before proceeding with treatment. Our dentists can also provide detailed mock-ups and wax-ups to show you what your smile will look like after your procedures.
We understand that dental anxiety is a very real condition affecting patients of all ages. Dr. Betancourt has specialized training in sedation dentistry, and he is one of the 1.5 percent of dentists in the state licensed to administer IV sedation. Other options to keep you comfortable during every stage of treatment include nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia.
We Can Restore Missing Teeth & Refine Your Appearance
For the right candidates, implants are the very best solution for missing teeth. Unlike traditional restorations, an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture also replaces the tooth roots. Using small titanium posts, these prosthetics provide an unrivaled level of support and stability for all sizes of restorations. They also stop the jaw atrophy that follows tooth loss. Our doctors have advanced training in the placement and restoration of implants.
At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we offer several types of implants, including the advanced All-on-4 placement method. This specialized treatment can support a full denture using only four implant posts. Our doctors will place two implants vertically in the front of the jaw and two at an angle to take advantage of the remaining jawbone tissue. For many patients, All-on-4 saves time and money by eliminating the need for a dental bone graft. It can also reduce the number of adjustments your denture needs over the years since the implants prevent jaw atrophy.
Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures to completely rejuvenate your appearance. Digital smile design allows us to exceed patients' expectations. This unique planning tool means patients can be more engaged from the very start. By previewing the anticipated results together, your doctor can make slight adjustments based on your goals and feedback. We can provide procedures like porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding, and more to ensure all your concerns are addressed.
The search for the perfect smile is over. Today's porcelain veneers are virtually identical to natural teeth, and they are uniquely capable of hiding the common imperfections that can detract from your smile. Whether you'd like to conceal staining, irregularly shaped teeth, or other concerns, veneers can achieve a stunning transformation in just two quick visits to our office. Our cosmetic dentists only use the highest quality materials, including IPS e.max® and IPS Empress®. These lifelike, durable ceramics offer an incredible range of shade-matching options.
