Through personalized treatments, including porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and teeth whitening, we can help you find confidence in your smile once again. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Edwin Porter, is skilled in the artistry and functional aspects of cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Veneers in Charlotte, NC are thin shells of porcelain that cover just the front portion of the teeth that show when you smile. Once your teeth have been modified (a small portion of enamel removed), veneers will fit naturally and restore proper size, shape, and alignment. We also offer Lumineers®, which eliminate the need for tooth modification. With minimal maintenance and maximum longevity, these restorations are a beneficial and hassle-free choice for renewing your smile.
Crowns are porcelain or ceramic “caps” for your teeth that conceal cosmetic and functional damage. They are durable and crack-resistant, which makes them a good choice for molars and front teeth that are cracked, broken, or misshapen. A tooth crown can generally last 15 years or more when cared for properly. Dr. Porter has completed all advanced training in CEREC technology to offer same-day dental crowns.
Bridges are a fixed replacement for one or more missing teeth. Made up of two or more custom dental crowns fused together, dental bridges effectively restore function and aesthetics to your smile. They can also keep remaining teeth from shifting out of place and altering your bite. Dental bridges can also be attached to dental implants instead of adjacent natural teeth. With advanced training in CEREC technology, our team provides same-day dental bridges right in our office.
Professional teeth whitening ranges from 1-hour whitening sessions in-office to take-home trays or strips with professional-grade bleaching gels. Depending on your time constraints and preferences, whitening can be customized to your needs as well as your specific smile goals. Our cosmetic dentist will monitor your treatment to ensure your whitening has natural and aesthetic results.
Sometimes teeth only need small cosmetic adjustments to restore their natural aesthetics and function. If you don’t need a complete crown, we offer inlays and onlays to spruce up your smile instead. Inlays replace an inside portion of a tooth and onlays restore one or more cusps of a tooth renewing strength and structure.
Crooked teeth almost always result in cosmetic concerns, even if their misalignment isn’t causing functional problems affecting your bite. There’s a range of orthodontic treatments available today that can be tailored to your needs. We’ll help you determine which one will most effectively correct your crooked teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile. Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® generally lasts between 6-18 months, depending on your unique case.
