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.

Teeth Whitening

Stained or yellow teeth can lessen the luster of your smile and lower your confidence when you pose for pictures or talk to others.

Professional teeth whitening can address virtually any external discoloration far more effectively than over-the-counter options.

Learn how Porter Dental Group in Charlotte, NC, can help you achieve a dazzling white smile in as little as one hour.

Transform Your Smile With Professional Teeth Whitening

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. Our warm, inviting Charlotte, NC, practice offers a variety of safe, affordable, and efficient whitening options to restore your beautiful smile.

Teeth Whitening Is an Extremely Popular Procedure And With Good Reason

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Products

Over-the-counter products that claim to whiten teeth may cost less than our dentists' professional treatments. But there are several reasons why professional whitening treatment is preferred by patients:

Faster Results

In-office treatment at our Charlotte, NC, practice can significantly lighten a discolored tooth or multiple stained teeth in about an hour. Whitening toothpastes, rinses, or strips can take several weeks or even months to whiten your teeth.

Powerful Whitening

Store whitening products, especially whitening toothpastes, use a much lower concentration of hydrogen peroxide than our professional tooth whitening services. Our treatments contain a much stronger (but still safe) hydrogen peroxide formula to bleach away tooth discoloration.

Customized to Your Needs

Our knowledgeable dentists know exactly how much hydrogen peroxide to use based on your whitening needs. With store products, you might use too little, leading to limited results, or too much, which can cause gum and tooth sensitivity.

Comfortable and Secure

Our take-home whitening trays are precisely fitted to your smile so the bleaching gel stays where it's supposed to: on your teeth. Store-bought trays might not fit as snugly, causing the bleaching solution to leak out. This can reduce its effectiveness, cause tooth sensitivity, and irritate delicate gum tissues.

More Affordable Long-term

Since store-bought tooth whitening products are not as effective as our professional ones, your results might not last as long. Just one in-office treatment can whiten your teeth for several months, while you could end up buying the same store products over and over again every few weeks without noticeable results.

Charles A. Porter III, DDS, and Robert E. Porter, DDS, have nearly 40 years of teeth whitening experience between them. They know exactly the right kind of treatment you need to whiten your teeth quickly, efficiently, and safely. Don't randomly pick a whitening product off the shelf and hope for the best. Choose Porter Dental Group for teeth whitening that will save you time, money, and potential discomfort.

Doctor and Patient
"This is a practice that is truly an efficient and pleasurable Dentist experience. I have never felt pressured here and this staff shows tremendous caring towards their patients and towards each other. I transitioned to Dr Porters group about 7 years ago after living in Charlotte for 22 years. This will be my permanent dentist office. Thank you for excellent service." Jules F.

Choose From These Professional-grade Whitening Options

Drs. Charles and Robert Porter provide patients with a range of modern dentistry options to suit their specific tooth whitening needs. Our in-office and at-home teeth whitening systems can produce similar results. Your lifestyle, desired timeline, cosmetic goals, and budget can all be discussed during your initial teeth whitening consultation to find the best technique for you.
UV Whitening

In-Office Treatment

In-office tooth whitening is performed in just one visit to our Charlotte, NC, dental practice. This is a great option if you want significantly whiter teeth as quickly as possible. During your appointment, a light-activated whitening gel is applied to your teeth. When exposed to UV light, a chemical reaction breaks down deep stains and discoloration. You can achieve a smile that is up to eight shades whiter in about an hour or more, depending on your individual case.

At-Home Whitening Trays

This treatment is great for patients who want to gradually whiten their teeth on a more flexible schedule. After impressions are taken of your smile, your dentist will provide you with snug-fitting, customized teeth whitening trays for use at home. This safe, effective dentistry treatment uses a bleaching gel similar to the one used in our in-office treatments, only with a milder hydrogen peroxide formula. You should see dramatic results in two to three weeks.

4 Tips To Make Your Brilliant Smile Last

Our dentists want you to enjoy your newly brightened smile for as long as possible. Here are a few tips on how to keep your dazzling teeth from losing their luster:

Limit staining beverages and foods like coffee, tea, red wine, tomatoes, soy sauce, and berries. Always rinse or brush after consuming these color-rich beverages and foods.

Continue to brush and floss at least twice a day. Rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash can keep plaque from collecting on your teeth.

If you are a smoker, quit. Smoking is one of the fastest ways to stain your teeth yellow.

Most importantly, have regular checkups and cleanings with our dentists every six months. That's the best way to keep your teeth healthy and bright.

"Top notch dental practice! Very professional and friendly! The place is clean and the atmosphere is great. The entire staff is friendly and does a great job running the practice. My wife and I have been going for years and have always had nothing but good experiences and excellent results! Thank you Dr. Porter and staff for being great at what you do!" Kirk Martin

Can Anyone Get
Their Teeth Whitened?


  • Dentists don't recommend teeth whitening for anyone under 16.
  • Patients with gum disease or tooth decay need to have these issues treated at our Charlotte, NC, practice before whitening can begin. We offer a wide range of dentistry treatments to improve your oral health.
  • Finally, if you have veneers, crowns, or dental bridges, whitening is not recommended as your natural teeth will not match the shade of your restorations.
