Greetings from Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney

Drs. John Pinnix and George Betancourt would like to extend our sincerest best wishes to you and your families. We hope that you continue to navigate these most difficult times with strength, perseverance and the promise that we will all soon return to 'business as usual'.

Please note, the purpose of this email is not to go into detail about our office protocols during the current COVID- 19 response. We always have and will continue to maintain the highest level of aseptic and sterilization techniques. Regarding our office hours, we are presently closed as a result of recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the American Dental Association. For patients with upcoming appointments, trust that we will communicate directly with you via phone call to reschedule them as we learn more about our current situation.

For the time being, we want to extend to you, our patients, the helping hand you need during these times for all things dental. While we may be limited in terms of office hours and available services, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt remain available to you via other modalities. For example, we ask that you please find and follow our social media pages, pinnixandbetancourt on Instagram, Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney on Facebook, and @BlakeneySmiles on Twitter. We will use these social media outlets as a means of communication and also a way to provide a Question & Answer forum for general questions anyone may have.

For personal/private needs related to ongoing treatment or your dental health, we will be available to schedule a virtual consultation. This may be accomplished via FaceTime, Zoom meeting or other platform whereby we may have a face to face encounter. These will be available to you, our patient, as a courtesy.

These are unprecedented times for us all. We strive to be on the front edge of the capabilities and service we provide our patients. Much of that depends on our availability and communication. We are here and we will, across any medium possible, provide the guidance you need during these difficult times. We ask that you please reach out to us either via email to the office (admin@blakeneysmiles.com), one of our social media platforms, or our phone line from which you can leave a message. We will make every effort possible to get back to you in a timely manner.

From Drs. Pinnix, Betancourt and our entire staff at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we hope you and your families manage the COVID-19 pandemic with an abundance of care, caution and respect for the well being of our community.

Learn Whats Taking Place in Charlotte Cosmetic Dentistry By SEO Admin on August 20, 2012

To most people, dentistry may not seem like a dynamic medical industry, however, dentistry is a constantly evolving field, especially when it comes to cosmetic dentistry practices. Today's cosmetic dentists have a wider variety of treatment options and materials to offer their patients than ever before. The result is a better looking smile for the patient.

While people once had to contend with metallic dental work glinting in their mouths, this is no longer a requirement today. Modern materials can mask dental treatments like crowns and fillings in the teeth. Dentists in Charlotte do not have to always use silver-colored repairs on the teeth. Porcelain options look just like the rest of the teeth, fixing the physical dental problem without sacrificing the appearance of the smile.

Cosmetic dentistry practices today also include porcelain veneers. These are custom-fitted to the patient's teeth to create a straight, bright smile where before a set of worn, slightly crooked teeth existed. These porcelain veneers require special crafting to properly fit over the patient's existing teeth, but they will last for years and are more comfortable than dentures because they are attached to the existing teeth. Charlotte cosmetic dentists may also use computer simulations to show the patient what the results of a cosmetic dental procedure will look like, ensuring that the patient has a clear image of what to expect.

Though innovative, dentists who specialize in cosmetic dentistry still custom-tailor each procedure to the individual. This lets the patient get the best results possible with the care and concern of the dentist.
