What Our Patients Have to Say Patient Stories from the Charlotte Metropolitan Area

These guys are the best!!!! If Dr Pinnex sees something cosmetically that he can improve quickly he just does it. My front teeth had little chips on the bottom and he took the time to smooth them out. Dr B does the same. I had a tooth fall out and it is a long process to replace it. He made me an Invisalign tray with a fake tooth so I would not feel insecure while waiting for my permanent replacement at no charge. The entire group are so thoughtful and loving. They have become more like family than just my dentist❤️ I highly recommend !!!! They care about every detail big or small. They truly want you to have a beautiful healthy smile.

Hands down, the most comfortable I've ever felt at a dentist office. I came in with lots of anxiety and fear.. knowing I have a lot of work that needs to be done. They immediately made me feel safe, comfortable, and did not shame me for how my teeth looked! We quickly came up with a plan and I left feeling super confident and excited to come back and get started! He even took my anxiety into consideration and reminded me to try and not get overwhelmed. To take things one step at a time and that we would eventually get to where i need to be! I highly recommend. Everyone in the office is super kind and friendly!

Have been a patient for many years. Broke a crown on Wednesday afternoon. Thursday morning I was in the chair getting the repair done. Can’t say enough good things about advanced dentistry. It is truly personal dentistry.

Have You Been
Avoiding Dental Care?

If So, You're Not Alone

A study in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders noted that roughly 20% of American adults suffer from dental anxiety that prevents them from seeking oral care. Avoid visits to the dentist means deteriorating teeth, increased risk of gum disease, and other serious health concerns.

Our team understands that some patients see a dental visit as a potential nightmare. We make every effort to provide a comfortable, stress-free, transformative dental experience. 

Your Comfort Is Our Priority How We Reduce Dental Anxiety

Your health and comfort are our top priorities, and we want to make your dental care as pleasant as possible.

Whether you need restorative care or want to improve the appearance of your smile, we will prioritize your comfort. We offer three types of sedation: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. These medications can even allow for quicker, more efficient treatment. 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.

To help you feel confident in your treatment, we will explain each procedure in detail, work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs, and take our time to 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.

Digital smile design

See Your Results Before Treatment Begins

Digital smile design is a state-of-the-art technology that allows us to exceed patient expectations and encourage patient input and involvement. By previewing simulated images of your results, you can give your opinion and suggest changes before even starting treatment. Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures to completely rejuvenate the appearance of your smile. We will customize your procedure based on your goals, feedback, and personal preferences. We can even combine treatments for more dramatic enhancement, ensuring your smile is everything you have dreamed of and more.

Drs. Pinnix completed a mini-residency at the NYU Dental School to master the art of digital smile design. Using our 3-D cone beam scanner and intraoral scanner, we can create digital models of your smile to help you preview your remarkable results, and allow us to precisely plan and place your restorations.

Refine Your Appearance  With Our Featured Treatments 

Dental Implants

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. Implants are small titanium posts that fuse permanently with the jaw to provide an unrivaled level of support and stability for restorations. They also stop the jaw atrophy that follows tooth loss. Our doctors have advanced training in the placement and restoration of implants.

Explore Dental 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.

Porcelain Veneers

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.

Explore Veneers

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic and restorative treatments to address all of your dental issues in a streamlined procedure. Common elements of treatment include teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding. You are in charge of your treatment during a smile makeover, and our dentists are here to listen to your needs and goals. A smile makeover can also save you time and money by reducing the number of office visits and anesthesia needed to perform the treatment.

Explore Smile Makeovers

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a custom restoration that covers the surface of a damaged tooth, protecting it from further damage, reinforcing its strength, and concealing aesthetic flaws all at once. Our doctors use CEREC® technology to create beautiful, long-lasting restorations in just one visit. Same-day restorations eliminate the need for temporaries and multiple appointments, allowing you to enjoy your results much faster.

As always, Dr. Betancourt did a wonderful job of taking care of a painful dental problem, and was willing to do the whole procedure while I was there at the first visit for this problem. Also, he was very kind as always, too.
