Living with a cosmetic dental issue, such as chipped, broken, stained, or overcrowded teeth can make even the most confident person feel a little reluctant to show their smile. Today, more than ever, people are taking photos and using social media. If you hide your smile it can hurt you not only socially but professionally as well. There are a wide variety of reasons someone would cover or hold back a smile in public settings. Fortunately, thanks to the world-class expertise and the latest in technology, it is possible to correct issues and improve your smile in as little as one visit at Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry.
Common Dental Complaints
It doesn’t take much for a straight, white smile to become less attractive. Oral hygiene, diet, aging, and genetics can all change the way your teeth and gums look and function if you are not careful. The most common complaints that people tend to have about the appearance of their teeth in North Carolina include:
- Stains and yellowness
- Overlapping or overcrowding
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Gum recession
- Gaps between teeth
- Gummy smile
- Missing teeth
Dr. Patrick Broome doesn’t just make a smile look good he also makes sure his patients are healthy.
We all know that a beautiful smile is also a healthy smile. The teeth and surrounding tissue are important to total-body health. When we take care of the whole person we can truly make a difference in their life. We find that when a patient is ready to improve their smile almost 100% of the time they are interested in making sure everything is healthy and stable for the long-term. Many times addressing cosmetic concerns actually helps improve overall health. Increased self-confidence is something others notice but our patients tell us they actually feel dramatically better!
Our Custom Solutions for Beautiful, Healthy Teeth
The team at Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry offer an extensive range of leading-edge dental services and teeth whitening treatments for even the most complex aesthetic dental issue. From simple tooth whitening to a total dental revamp, our practice can help provide the best solution possible. Our most popular cosmetic procedures include:
Discoloration is probably one of the biggest complaints that individuals have about the appearance of their teeth. In some cases, even consistent dental hygiene cannot prevent enamel from forming stains. Using our advanced teeth whitening treatments, such as Zoom!® Teeth Whitening, our patients can regain fresh, bright teeth in just an hour.

Porcelain veneers are a great solution for a wide range of cosmetic teeth issues, such as chips, stains, misalignment. At our Charlotte practice, Dr. Broome can take an impression of your teeth and create a custom veneer that looks just like the surrounding teeth to create a natural, flawless smile.
Our revolutionary laser technology, BIOLASE Waterlase® iPlus, allows us to quickly and efficiently address a variety of medical and cosmetic dental issues without drills. Laser dentistry is ideal for sculpting gum tissue, removing bacteria/ decay, and performing many procedures traditionally done with a dental drill.

The thought of wearing metal braces, especially as an adult is often unacceptable for most people who want a straighter smile. With clear Invisalign aligners, patients can effectively straighten their teeth without anyone else noticing. Today, we no long use traditional impression material but instead do a 3D digital scan of your teeth and send it over the internet to Invisalign. You aligners are usually back and ready for you in 1 week.
Tooth bonding can be a very conservative treatment option that is some cases can provide a great aesthetic solution yet still be conservative. Dental bonding can be used to repair cracks, chips, gaps, wear-and-tear, and even discoloration. The resin is color-matched to the patient’s teeth for a seamless look.
For patients with significant dental issues, a dental prosthesis, known as All-on-4 or “Hybrid Bridges” can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Although lots of planning is done beforehand, the actual procedure is completed in a single day and often is a cost-effective solution for patients with severe tooth damage, periodontal disease, or missing teeth. The damaged teeth are removed and a new custom denture or bridge is secured in place with four or more dental implants to create a solid, fixed solution that from the outside looks like a brand new natural smile.
Total Smile Makeover
In many cases, in order to achieve a beautiful smile, a patient may need a combination of cosmetic, teeth whitening, and restorative dental treatments. Dr. Broome carefully assesses a patient’s overall oral health as well as his or her concerns in order to plan a total smile makeover. A makeover may include a combination of teeth whitening, laser dentistry, bonding, and porcelain veneers, for example.
