Custom Treatment Plans Involving Cosmetic Dentistry & More
Because every patient is unique, no two smile makeovers will be the same. However, there are several popular cosmetic dentistry procedures to choose from, including:
This treatment involves the application of tooth-colored composite resin to can conceal a wide range of imperfections such as chips, cracks, discoloration, and more.
If you have old amalgam fillings, they can be replaced with tooth-colored composite fillings for a more natural-looking appearance.
Like bonding, veneers can conceal a number of aesthetic issues, including chips, fractures, gaps, and misshapen teeth. These thin ceramic shells are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth and can deliver a more uniform, balanced effect.
Yellowed, discolored, or dull teeth can be brightened by several shades with professional teeth whitening. At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we offer both in-office and take-home options.
Patients who have overlapping teeth, gapped teeth, or other forms of dental misalignment can benefit from orthodontic treatment. At our practice, we offer the Invisalign system, which is a clear, removable alternative to traditional metal braces.
Laser Gum Reshaping
Those with an uneven or “gummy” smile can undergo laser gum reshaping. This advanced procedure eliminates excess gum tissue and contours the gum line for a more symmetrical, balanced appearance.
Our Charlotte practice offers all necessary restorative care to create a strong foundation for your makeover. Dental implants, for example, are an excellent method of replacing missing teeth.
Most Patients with Cosmetic Flaws Will Qualify for Treatment
Our doctors, serving Charlotte and Ballantyne, typically recommend a smile makeover for patients who want to address multiple aesthetic concerns in a comprehensive treatment plan.
Ready to Invest in Your Smile
Insurance won't cover the cost of cosmetic procedures, so interested patients should be sure they are ready to pay out of pocket. We offer financing options that can make the smile of your dreams affordable.
You Can Control Every Aspect of Your Smile Makeover
Smile makeovers are all about personalization, meaning you are in charge of the scope of your treatment. Some of our patients choose to focus on minor issues, such as discoloration and cracks, while others want a dramatic transformation.
Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt can work with you to design a smile makeover plan that suits your goals and preferences. We help patients throughout greater Charlotte, including Ballantyne, experience beautiful smiles.

A Smile Makeover Can Provide Both Cosmetic and Functional Benefits
Patients who undergo a smile makeover at our Charlotte practice can enjoy a wide range of cosmetic benefits. Depending on the procedures you choose, these could include:
- Fewer surface flaws, such as chips
- Straighter teeth
- Whiter, brighter teeth
- A more uniform, even smile
- Closed gaps
In addition to these cosmetic benefits, some patients may enjoy functional advantages as well. For example, if your smile makeover included custom restorations such as a dental bridge or orthodontic treatment, you can experience:
- Enhanced bite function
- Improved alignment
- A decreased risk of bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder
Simple Tips for Maintaining Your Results
A smile makeover requires investing your time and money, so our dentists want to help you maintain your results as long as possible.
To keep your smile looking great and feeling healthy, you should:
- Brush your teeth twice each day, even if you have porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, or dental implants
- Floss your teeth daily, but floss front to back (rather than up and down) to avoid dislodging your dental work
- Visit our Charlotte dentists every six months so that we can assess the health of your smile
- Minimize foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as red wine, tea, coffee, and tomato sauces
Depending on which treatments you undergo, our dentists will provide a detailed set of aftercare instructions to help you maintain a healthy smile for years to come.

How to Determine the Cost of a Smile Makeover
Each smile makeover is designed to meet the unique needs of our patients. This means the costs involved can vary greatly from patient to patient, depending upon the number of procedures performed, the technology used, and the use of sedation.
A Closer Look at Smile Makeover Cost Factors
Our office uses the latest dental technology to provide the highest quality of care, including digital x-rays, CEREC®, and laser technology. Some of our technologies can save you money by reducing lab fees. However, others may add to your final cost.
More aesthetic materials, such as dental porcelain, often cost more than other options. For example, veneers are typically more expensive than bonding. However, ceramic provides more realistic and durable results.
We can often perform cosmetic dentistry treatments without the need for sedation. However, if you suffer from dental anxiety or have sensitive teeth, we offer sedation: nitrous oxide, oral medication, and intravenous (IV) sedation.
