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.

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.

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.

South Charlotte Cosmetic Dentists Bring CEREC Technology Into Practice By SEO Admin on December 10, 2012

CEREC technology has changed the way that cosmetic dentists approach their practice. The days of making impressions and sending them off to a dental lab to reproduce a crown or bridge are quickly becoming a thing of the past.

CEREC technology now gives the cosmetic dentists the tools necessary to create any crown, bridge or onlays/inlays needed for their patient in just one visit. With this technology, there is no longer the chance that the crown or bridge will not fit properly. CEREC ensures a perfect fit the first time.

New patients looking for a good South Charlotte dentist should consider choosing a dentist that uses the latest technology in their practice. It will save the patient having to book extra appointments for a procedure which is now done in one visit, and the results are remarkable.

With the correct South Charlotte dentist, patients can have fillings made of ceramic and match the adjoining teeth so that fillings are no longer noticeable like the metal and amalgam fillings that were once the only choice patients had. Over time, old amalgam fillings become unstable and sensitive to temperature extremes, causing them to expand and contract. This allows for bacteria to set up underneath the filling, thus creating a second cavity. If not caught early, a crown may be needed to stabilize the tooth.

Veneers are a quick orthodontics fix for teeth that need minor corrections. Using the CEREC technology, veneers can be made and applied in one visit instead of a year of braces to achieve the same look, and at a fraction of the cost.

Cosmetic dentists continue ongoing training in the field of dentistry to stay on top of the latest advancements, and they are being invented at breakneck speed now aided by the use of computer technology.

If you have any questions or would like more information about our one visit CEREC cosmetic dentistry services, please feel free to contact ourCharlotte dentist officeat 704-543-1102 or by using our convenient onlineappointment request form.
