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 Bonding

Imperfections such as stains, chips, or gaps can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile, significantly impacting your confidence.

Using a tooth-colored material, dental bonding conceals imperfections and creates a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

So why is dental bonding the solution for you?

Dental Bonding is a Simple Yet Diverse Way to Enhance Your Smile

Dental bonding is a cost-effective option. 
Bonding is much more affordable than other alternatives. It can conceal stains, close gaps, rebuild cracks, and create a more consistent tooth shape and size.

Dental bonding requires minimal tooth alteration. 
Whereas porcelain veneers require the tooth to be reshaped, dental bonding involves gentle etching prior to applying the composite resin material. As a result, bonding is reversible.

Dental bonding can be performed in a single visit.
Since there is minimal preparation, bonding material can be applied to the tooth in one appointment. The process usually takes under one hour.

You're Not Alone If You Feel Insecure about Your Smile

I've Heard Porcelain Veneers Are Better...

While porcelain veneers can address more extensive concerns, they typically cost between $800 to $3,000 per tooth. A bonding treatment can address similar issues at a fraction of the cost. Patients can expect to spend about $100 to $400 per tooth. Additionally, patients with compromised enamel may not be candidates for porcelain veneers. Dental bonding does not impose the same restrictions.

Detailed molding and polishing can help achieve highly realistic results.

The Dental Bonding Treatment Process Simple, Yet Highly Personalized.

You and your dentist will discuss your goals and identify the specific issues you would like to address.

The composite-resin will then be shade-matched to the surrounding teeth for optimal aesthetics.

The doctor will apply the resin to the treatment area, molding the material around the existing tooth structure to achieve the desired shape and size.

Using a curing light, the resin will be hardened.

Finally, the dentist will polish the tooth and resin for the most natural-looking results.

Completely Transform Your Smile

While porcelain veneers can provide highly realistic results, they are much more expensive and may not fit within your budget. Teeth whitening may be a solution for patients worried about stains, however, even professional treatments may not address extensive discoloration. Bonding is a versatile option that provides natural-looking results when composite is carefully sculpted over your teeth.

Lacking confidence in your smile can impact your quality of life in more ways than one. Dental bonding is a very accessible solution that can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth.
