We Make It Possible to Afford the Smile You Deserve

Since insurance does not typically cover this type of dentistry, many patients are worried that it is a luxury they cannot afford. However, that is not the case. Several financing options can be applied to your treatment to reduce your overall out-of-pocket cost. In addition to CareCredit®, we also offer in-house financing. Porter Dental Group can also tailor treatment to suit your budget, from more cost-effective materials to an alternative procedure. 

Your Smile Must Be Healthy Before You Can Undergo Cosmetic Care

Before cosmetic treatment, your smile needs to be healthy with no gum disease or cavities. Dr. Charles Porter and Dr. Robert Porter can fix any dental issues efficiently prior to cosmetic dental care, so that your new smile is both beautiful and healthy. Our dentists will evaluate your oral health during your consultation and recommend the best treatment plan for you.

While cosmetic dentistry is dedicated to enhancing the appearance of teeth, general dentistry and restorative dentistry focus on repairing and maintaining oral health. Patients seeking cosmetic care often only need minor treatments such as fillings or gum disease treatment, but if needed, our dentists can provide a comprehensive range of treatments to prepare your smile for a cosmetic upgrade.

Comprehensive Cosmetic Treatment AT OUR CHARLOTTE, NC PRACTICE

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are placed on the front of the teeth to conceal imperfections. Using our in-office CEREC® machine, we can often place same-day veneers.

"Absolutely fantastic dental office. Dr. Porter is excellent and 100% committed to giving his patients the highest possible care. Everyone in the office is attentive, friendly, and the best at what they do. I have been a satisfied routine patient for years but a recent accident showed just how skilled and accommodating Dr. Porter and his team are in getting my repair work done. I wouldn't go anywhere else!"

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQ

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on the aesthetics of the smile. While some cosmetic treatments, such as crowns, can improve the health of your smile, most cosmetic treatments are designed solely to improve the look of your smile.

What can cosmetic dentistry do?

Cosmetic treatments can conceal cosmetic imperfections such as damaged or discolored teeth as well as uneven gums. Our Charlotte, NC, dentists even offer digital preview software so that you can see what dentistry can do for your smile before you commit to treatment.

What are the pros and cons of cosmetic dentistry?

Pros of cosmetic dentistry include improving the look of your smile, boosting your self-confidence, and experiencing a better quality of life. The biggest con of cosmetic dentistry is the cost of treatment, but our Charlotte dental office offers third-party and in-house financing to make your dream smile a reality.

Is cosmetic dentistry painful?

In general, no, cosmetic dentistry is not painful. Some treatments, like whitening, can even be performed without numbing your smile. For others, our dentists will thoroughly numb the treatment area so that you don't experience any discomfort. If you have particularly sensitive teeth or dental anxiety, our sedation dentistry options can help you relax during treatment.
