Dear Valued Patient:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and stay safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You'll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

- You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children's toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you're offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

- We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 704-364-9000. 

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,

Dr. Porter and Team

Dental Crowns

Damaged or missing teeth can significantly affect the health, strength, and appearance of your smile.

Through restorative dentistry, you can have a functioning smile that is both beautiful and healthy.

Drs. Charles Porter III and ​Robert Porter can craft custom crowns in their Charlotte, NC, office to restore your smile in a single day.

All-Encompassing Benefits

Restored Dental Function

A permanent crown can be placed to repair a broken or decayed tooth. Crowns cover the entire tooth, protecting it from further damage. A dental bridge can replace one to three teeth in a row, restoring your ability to chew and speak normally.

Durable Restoration

Your dental bridge or crown can last up to 10 years. However, it is important that you practice proper care which includes maintaining your oral hygiene at home by brushing at least twice per day and flossing once per day, as well as undergoing bi-annual exams at our office. 

Realistic Results

As both a cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Porter is proud to provide his patients with realistic results that blend seamlessly with the rest of their smile. With your natural-looking dental restoration, you can feel confident in your smile again.

Better Quality of Life 

Receiving a dental crown or bridge can help make daily activities like eating in social settings easier and more comfortable as well as increase your self-esteem. These effects can also improve your overall quality of life.

You Have Many Options When Replacing a Damaged or Missing Tooth

During your consultation, one of our dentists will recommend the best restoration that will meet your needs. 

Dental Crown

Dental Crown

A dental crown can cover a severely damaged tooth and protect it from further damage or decay. Dental crowns look and act like your natural tooth so they can even be used on your front teeth to give you a functioning, uniform smile. If you have a missing tooth or a tooth that needs extracting, you can discuss your candidacy with one of our dentists to see if you are a good fit for an implant-supported dental crown.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth's root structure. Once placed, they provide a sturdy base for a dental crown or dental bridge to be permanently secured. Dental implants provide greater stability and protect against jawbone atrophy.

About Dental Implants

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges can replace a single missing tooth or a few missing teeth when a gap is surrounded by healthy teeth. For a few missing teeth in a row, an implant-supported dental bridge is almost always recommended. Our dentists also offer Prettau® Zirconia bridges, which are unparalleled in quality.

About Dental Bridges

A New Smile in One Day How CEREC Advances Dentistry

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create custom dental restorations. For special cases where your permanent crown or bridge cannot be created using CEREC, we will work with a trusted dental lab that will create your restoration to the highest standards.

Quick

Traditionally, patients have had to schedule multiple appointments to receive a dental crown or bridge. Thanks to Dr. Charles and Robert Porter's investment in a CEREC machine at our Charlotte practice, we are able to provide our patients with convenient restorations that can be completed in a single appointment.

Advanced

CEREC is equipped with advanced imaging, which allows for enhanced diagnostic and planning precision. This means the system can both design and fabricate your restoration in our office with the utmost accuracy. 

Quality

This technology allows you to receive your restoration faster, without sacrificing quality, and without the need for a temporary crown. Using a block of dental-grade porcelain, the machine will craft a lifelike restoration designed to your specifications. Once your dental restoration is placed, you will not be able to distinguish it from your surrounding natural teeth.

Quality Dental Crowns From Dentists Who Stand Behind Their Work Contact Porter Dental Group Today

Whichever type of dental crown or bridge you choose, our dentists always use the highest quality porcelain and other materials to provide the best possible outcome. During each aspect of your treatment, they ensure the greatest attention to detail to create a long-lasting restoration that is comfortable and fits precisely. With a dedication to excellence, our entire team in Charlotte, NC, stands by our work.

Receiving Your Crown or Bridge 

Your dental crown or bridge may be completed in one or two appointments.

Both our dentists are dedicated to achieving the very best results.
Both our dentists are dedicated to achieving the very best results.

Consultation

During your consultation at our Charlotte office, one of our dentists will perform an examination of your bite to determine the best course of treatment.

Preparation

The tooth and surrounding area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Your dentist will then remove a portion of the treated tooth and in some cases, the abutment (surrounding) teeth that will support your bridge.

Impressions & Design

Our dentists will take digital impressions with our CEREC technology and then use the software to design your custom restoration.

Fabrication

If we use CEREC, your restoration can be fabricated and placed in a single appointment. Otherwise, your impressions will be sent to a lab. This process can take about two weeks and you will receive a temporary crown in the meantime.

Placement

The doctor will remove the temporary crown if you have one and then ensure your permanent restoration fits properly. He will then secure your permanent crown or bridge in place using dental cement.

Results You Can Feel Confident In

With all-porcelain CEREC restorations, your crown or bridge should be indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
