Worn, chipped, or stained teeth can make you feel self-conscious and cause you to avoid smiling with friends or sharing your feelings.

Our dentists are masters at creating porcelain veneers to mask those cosmetic imperfections and reveal a more beautiful, symmetrical smile.

We can even give you a digital preview of your new smile. Discover what’s possible at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney in Charlotte, NC.

Porcelain Veneers Can Dramatically Enhance Your Smile

A Versatile Treatment

Veneers are porcelain shells that can be used to conceal a wide range of tooth problems, including chips, cracks, misalignment, and stubborn stains. The treatment is often included in smile makeover plans

Natural-Looking Results

At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney in Charlotte, NC, we craft our veneers from high-quality dental porcelain. This sophisticated material mimics the properties of natural tooth enamel so that dental veneers blend seamlessly with your smile.

Strong & Durable

While the porcelain shells are incredibly thin, they are also remarkably strong. With proper care, your veneers can last 10 years or more without fracturing or staining.

If You Are Unhappy with Your Smile, You Are Not Alone...

What Will My Smile Look Like? We Can Show You

Do you get a little tongue-tied trying to describe just what you want in your smile? Are you worried your dentist misunderstood what you said? 

These are legitimate concerns. We address them with state-of-the-art digital technology that creates a 3-D simulation of your transformed smile that you can preview. Before we even touch a tooth, you can tell us if we are on the right track or point out any changes you want.

The simulation is created after a thorough aesthetic analysis of your teeth and face using a 3-D facial scan, a 3-D intraoral scan, and other tools that capture your facial features and guide the fabrication of your veneers. 

This sophisticated technology allows us to design the shape of each tooth and fully customize your smile to fit your facial features and expectations.

Veneers Can Enhance Teeth Affected By a Number of Imperfections

But am I a good candidate for veneers?

Patients with Good Oral Health Typically Qualify for Porcelain Veneers

Before undergoing any treatment, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt will perform a thorough dental checkup, periodontal assessment, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) evaluation, and bite analysis to identify any potential dental problems that should be addressed before receiving veneers.

Do You Have Sufficient Enamel?

Because the veneer process requires that we remove a small amount of enamel from each treated tooth, we will check the condition of your teeth before recommending this treatment.

Do You Grind Your Teeth?

Grinding or clenching your teeth can damage your veneers. For some patients with bruxism, a mouthguard can restore their candidacy for porcelain veneers.

Are You Free of Decay and Gum Disease?

If Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt detect any cavities or gum disease, we can recommend the appropriate treatment, such as dental fillings or periodontal care

Veneers Offer Superior Results Compared to Simpler Procedures

If you are concerned about the cost of veneers, there are several alternatives that are less expensive. For certain cosmetic issues, Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt can achieve similar results with dental bonding.

However, dental bonding can't match the natural-looking and comprehensive effects of treatment with veneers. In addition to masking flaws, the advanced dental porcelain mimics the properties of natural teeth for stunning results.

Our practice uses the latest materials to produce beautiful results...

Beautiful Smiles Start with High-End Materials Beauty & Durability

Veneers can last for 10 years or longer with proper care, so when you are looking to transform your smile, it pays to be selective about the dental materials that will be used. Drs. Pinnix and Betancourt only use the highest quality materials, including state-of-the-art IPS e.max and IPS Empress porcelain.
IPS Empress Veneers

IPS Empress Veneers

IPS Empress veneers are crafted from a leucite-reinforced ceramic that is valued for its exceptional aesthetic results. It is available in a wide range of shades and layering options to create a natural-looking smile. Dental veneers created from this top-tier composite look natural in any lighting and from any angle. The material also has impressive durability. Many consider IPS Empress the ultimate benchmark for highly esthetic pressed porcelain veneers.

IPS e.max Veneers

IPS e.max Veneers

IPS e.max veneers are made of lithium disilicate glass ceramic (a high-strength ceramic material) for twice the strength of Empress veneers. At the same time, e.max offers superior aesthetics and a precise fit. e.max is available in a wide selection of opacities and shades, allowing our dentists to carefully match veneers to your preferred color for a natural-looking result. 

So what happens during dental veneers treatment?

You Can Transform Your Smile In Just a Few Weeks

The veneer placement process can generally be completed in two office visits to Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney in Charlotte, NC.

Nervous in the dental chair? We offer sedation so you can sit back and relax.

First Visit

Nervous in the dental chair? We offer sedation so you can sit back and relax.


During the first visit, your doctor will carefully prepare and reshape the teeth you wish to treat for the best cosmetic result. This involves removing a small amount of enamel so the veneer fits seamlessly.


Once the teeth are prepared, we take digital impressions. These will be used by our trusted dental laboratory to fabricate veneers that match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.

Temporary Placement

To help protect your teeth while you wait for your veneers to be fabricated, we may place temporary veneers.

About one to two weeks later, you can return to our practice to receive your dental veneers. 

Second Visit

Check the Fit

Your doctor will inspect each veneer and then check that they fit properly in your mouth.


Once you and your doctor are happy with the results, he can apply a special etching solution and permanently bond the veneers in place

Finishing Touches

Your doctor can then polish your teeth to reveal your newly transformed smile.
