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 (, 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.

Charlotte Cosmetic Dentists and CEREC One Visit Dentistry

By SEO Admin on October 22, 2012

Visiting the dentist is not something that people look forward to doing, but our Charlotte dentists have technology that can make the experience much more pleasant for everyone who needs these certain types of dental procedures done. Cosmetic dentists are aware that their patients do not want to have to make appointment after appointment to have their dental work completed, so they offer CEREC technology that makes it possible to complete everything in one visit.

Even when patients need affordable crowns or veneers, they will have the option of having these porcelain products made the same day that the Charlotte dentists will apply them. What patients really like about the CEREC one visit dentistry that Charlotte cosmetic dentists have at their disposal is that they will not need to have as many injections of anesthesia and there is also less drilling.

CEREC one visit dentistry makes it possible for patients to have their affordable crowns applied without having the Charlotte cosmetic dentists give them an injection and prepare the tooth only to be sent home with a temporary crown. With the ability to create these affordable crowns on the same day, patients only need one injection, one preparation and the Charlotte dentists will apply the permanent crown that very day.

CEREC technology is not just fast because it is also the healthiest way that a dentist can restore a tooth. With CEREC, the old metal materials are no longer necessary. The substances CEREC uses are ceramic in the same color as the patients natural teeth. The material is strong and resists cracks and the untrained eye will never know that the tooth is artificial and not the one that has always been there.

If you have any questions or would like more information about our CEREC one visit dentistry treatments, which have been used all over the world for almost 20 years, or any additional information about our cosmetic dentistry services, please feel free to contact ourCharlotte dentist officeat 704-543-1102 or by using our convenient onlineappointment request form.
