Professional Cleaning

Distinctive Dentistry of Charlotte focuses on preventative maintenance. We recommend that everyone over the age of four visit the dentist every six months. Our professionally trained hygienists will inspect and clean your teeth, check for early signs of gum disease and help you maintain perfect oral health. We’ll also ask you about your brushing and flossing habits ensuring your at-home tooth care is providing you with the best protection possible. While problems are not 100 percent avoidable, regular check ups certainly help.

Tooth Whitening

Having a nice smile is one of our top priorities at Distinctive Dentistry of Charlotte. Tooth bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure to help us achieve great results. As a person ages, the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous. Teeth can also become stained by coffee, tea or tobacco. In the comfort of our Charlotte location, Dr. Summerville can have your teeth restored to their natural beauty.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Distinctive Dentistry of Charlotte has extensive experience in deciding whether or not veneers would be the best decision to help you achieve a great smile.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Sometimes cavities are unavoidable. But that doesn’t mean they have to be unsightly. Distinctive Dentistry of Charlotte is able to repair your tooth using a tooth-colored filling designed to match the color of your tooth perfectly. The procedure is quick, comfortable and easy.

Root Canals, Crowns and Bridges

When a healthy tooth suffers more severe damage, like a fracture or a large cavity, a crown or a bridge may be needed. The circumstance of the damaged tooth usually defines the restoration. In other words, based upon factors such as remaining solid tooth structure, aesthetics, the location of the tooth within the mouth and the consequent forces of function that said tooth will have to deal with once restored, Dr. Summerville will then decide on the proper way to treat the tooth.

Inlays and Onlays

An inlay or onlay restoration is a custom-made filling made of gold or tooth-colored porcelain. Sometimes an onlay is referred to as a partial crown. Both inlays and onlays are made by a professional dental laboratory, and either is permanently cemented into the tooth by your dentist. Inlays can be utilized to conservatively fix teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. These restorations are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings. Also, they are more conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed during the restorative process.
