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.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry includes procedures specifically designed to address conditions affecting the health and function of your smile.

Dr. Charles Porter is a restorative dentist in Charlotte, NC, who can maintain your oral health by repairing and replacing damaged teeth.

Why is restorative dentistry important?

What are the benefits of visiting a restorative dentist instead of choosing cosmetic dentistry?

Restore the Health & Cosmetic Appearance of Your Smile

Repair Your Smile

Whether you suffer from mild or severe oral health issues, a restorative dentist can provide dental care to treat these conditions, restoring full form and function to your smile. By addressing these issues, a dentist can alleviate pain as well as improve your ability to eat comfortably and enunciate properly.

Achieve High-Quality Results

Our dentist, Dr. Porter, has been practicing for over 25 years and uses the most advanced technology available in dentistry throughout the entire process. He can accurately diagnose your condition, provide precise treatment, and create a well-fitting custom crown or bridge for the best possible outcome.

Improve Your Confidence

Broken and decayed teeth can detract from the aesthetics of your smile. However, similar to cosmetic dentistry, restorative treatments can improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile and boost your confidence. Dr. Porter often uses tooth-colored materials for the most natural-looking results.

What restorative dentistry treatments does our dentist perform?

A Higher Level of Care

"Dr. Porter and his staff provide the best dental care I have received. After a horrible experience at a chain dental office in Charlotte, I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Porter by a friend and almost 5 years later, I'm still going and don't dread dental appointments anymore." Chris S.

Same-Day Restorations for More Efficient Dentistry

Our Charlotte, NC, office is equipped with CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology which combines computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM). Using this dentistry system, Dr. Porter can design, fabricate, and place crowns, bridges, and veneers in a single appointment. Each restoration is crafted from dental-grade porcelain that is shade-matched to the rest of your teeth for the most natural-looking results. In addition to advanced imaging and fabrication capabilities, CEREC also allows the doctor to take digital impressions which prevent the need for traditional impressions using putty which most patients find uncomfortable.

Dr. Porter is proud to offer his Charlotte patients the most advanced solutions in dentistry that are convenient, precise, and long-lasting. With CEREC restorations, he is confident he can provide you with the best experience and results. However, even if he cannot use CEREC to create your restoration, you can rest assured that Dr. Porter will provide detailed treatment and high-quality results that you can rely on.
