Stained teeth can have a negative effect on the luster of your smile and your confidence. You might even be hesitant to smile openly.
Professional whitening treatment can address virtually any external discoloration far more effectively than over-the-counter solutions.
Learn how Charles A. Porter III, DDS, in Charlotte, NC, can help you achieve a dazzling white smile...
Transform Your Smile
Even with impeccable dental hygiene, your teeth can lose their radiance due to genetics, age, smoking, and beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine. Even a single discolored tooth can have a major impact on the appearance of your smile. Dr. Porter offers a variety of safe, affordable, and efficient whitening options at our Charlotte office to restore your beautiful smile.
I'm so glad I found Dr. Porter and his whole staff. My son and I have been patients for 20 years or more. They have done so much to improve my dental health and they are like family to me. They stay up to date with the latest technologies and techniques, and I've had nothing but great trips to their office.View On Facebook

Professional versus Over-the-Counter Whitening
Tooth whitening toothpastes and strips are relatively cheap and readily available at your local pharmacy, so why pay more for a dentist-supervised whitening? Results. A dentist-prescribed treatment will brighten your smile more quickly and effectively than any over-the-counter (OTC) alternative.
Both systems use hydrogen peroxide as an active ingredient to whiten teeth, but OTC whitening products use a much lower concentration. Drug store whitening products such as teeth whitening toothpastes and strips can take weeks and even months before you see results. In contrast, we can significantly whiten your teeth in just one in-office treatment session. Our dentist can help you quickly achieve stunning tooth whitening results in order to restore the brilliance to your smile.
Professional-Grade Whitening Options
Charles A. Porter III, DDS, provides his patients with a wide range of modern dentistry options to suit their specific tooth whitening needs. In-office tooth whitening is performed in just one visit at our dental office in Charlotte, NC. This is a great option for someone who wants significantly whiter teeth as quickly as possible.
During your appointment, Dr. Porter will apply a light-activated whitening gel to your teeth. When exposed to UV light, the solution activates a chemical reaction that breaks down even deep stains and discoloration. In under two hours, you can achieve a smile that is up to eight shades whiter.
For patients with tooth sensitivity, or a more flexible schedule, our dentist can provide you with custom-made teeth whitening trays for use at home. This dentistry treatment uses a bleaching gel similar to the one used in our in-office treatments, only with a milder hydrogen peroxide formula.
Both teeth whitening systems can produce comparable results. Lifestyle, timeline, cosmetic goals, and budget will be the biggest deciding factors when considering what type of treatment is right for you.
Love Your Brilliant Smile
Dr. Porter wants you to love your smile. His safe, affordable, and fast teeth whitening options can transform your appearance in as little as one dental appointment.
Regular cleanings can help keep your smile bright by periodically removing surface stains. We can also provide you with tips to maintain your results until your next whitening touch-up, such as quitting smoking and minimizing the amount of coffee, red wine, and other darkly colored drinks and foods you consume.
