Kim suffered a childhood accident that left her with a visible dental issue — a broken tooth that darkened over the years. Dr. Robert L. Harrell was able to restore her beautiful smile with natural-looking porcelain dental veneers. Kim loves the result and has come back to Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne several times for additional work.
Natural-Looking Dental Veneers – Charlotte NC
I actually broke my tooth when I was about seven or eight years old. I was riding a roller coaster in Pennsylvania. So, for a long time I was very self-conscious about it. And then the tooth started to turn color, and being a female and also be in sales, I was pretty self-conscious about it.
But I’d had it for a long time, so it came to a point where I felt really comfortable so I went in and had it done and then to make it look natural Dr. Harrell couraged me to get a few more. So that way, when you smile it looks very natural instead of just two or three. I keep coming back because of the quality of what I get.
I definitely recommend him. I’ve recommended him several times. I would highly recommend him for his knowledge and the quality of work, obviously. So, I’ve been real pleased.
Routine teeth cleanings are critical for maintaining good oral health. Beyond the direct benefits of keeping plaque and tartar deposits from accumulating on the teeth, regular cleaning appointments make it easier to identify potential trouble spots before they become painful or require significant restoration.
We use the latest tools to give your teeth the most in-depth cleaning possible and, unlike the scraping and picking many patients are used to, today’s procedures are extremely comfortable. Ultrasonic scalers eliminate deposits from the teeth using undetectable ultrasonic vibrations. A cleaning appointment at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne will the easiest you’ve ever experienced.
At the end of your appointment, the hygienist will spray your teeth with a special mixture of water and baking soda. This helps to remove any leftover plaque and polishes the teeth, leaving them smooth and shiny. The baking soda also neutralizes acidic conditions in the mouth which can do harm to enamel.
With new Cerec technology, crowns can be created and applied in a single dental appointment. That means complete tooth restoration in just one simple and painless office visit. Cerec same-day crowns are the perfect solution for your dental health needs.
So, one of the most advanced procedures that we have to offer today is CEREC same-day crowns. In the days gone by, patients would come in for a crown, we would get the tooth prepared, we’d take impressions, it was messy. We had to make a temporary. Patients would wear that temporary home for a period of typically about two weeks. During that two weeks the temporary crown might pop off. They might have some problem.
We’ve totally eliminated all of those patient concerns with the new CEREC same-day crowns. Today we can do the entire procedure in a very quick and efficient period of time and deliver a permanent restoration for the patient that same day. The advancement in this technology is phenomenal, and so now we can offer a procedure that’s better for our patient, provides a better clinical result, and our patients are happier. No one really wants to have a crown, but if you need one, you really want to have it done with the most advanced technology available

Invisalign braces correct your teeth using a series of invisible aligners that are completely comfortable and can be removed for eating and other times as needed. Invisalign braces are less expensive than conventional wire braces and they shorten the treatment time.
The main difference between Invisalign and conventional braces is that it’s invisible, it’s comfortable, and it’s removable. So with conventional braces, once the brackets and wires are bonded to your teeth, they are there for at least 18-24 months.
With Invisalign we generate a series of clear aligners. Each aligners has programmed a specific amount of movement for the teeth, but the huge benefit for the patient is that the aligners can be removed for comfortable eating, no worries with food stuck between your teeth, with difficulties cleaning around the brackets and wires, with sores in your mouth from the brackets.
Invisalign is a completely comfortable option. If you have a party, you can take your aligners out. It’s one of the most popular procedures in our office for patients that really are looking for an effective, simple solution to correct their crooked smile. Another great advantage of Invisalign is that the cost is less than conventional braces.
