Finding a Charlotte dental office you can trust can seem like a laborious task. “Are they trying to upsell me?”, “ How do I know that I really need this treatment?”. These are just some of the questions you may ask yourself after visiting a dental office for the first time. At Park Crossing Dentistry you become family. Our conservative approach to dentistry creates trust and that trust creates the basis for a long-term relationship. Our dentists often say, “if this was my mother, brother or family member, this is the treatment I would do….”.
Congrats to our wonderful patient, Officer Charles Cho, who helped deliver a baby girl on the side of I-77 recently. There wasn’t enough time for the couple to make it to the hospital and thankfully Officer Cho was in the area to provide assistance. Thank you, Charles, for your service to our community!
At approximately 6 months of age, our babies’ first teeth begin to break through the gums. Usually, the first two teeth to erupt are the bottom front teeth. Next, the top four front teeth emerge. After that, other teeth slowly begin to fill in, usually in pairs -- one each side of the upper or lower jaw -- until all 20 teeth come in. The best time to bring your child to the dentist is around 3 years of age. Begin teaching them to brush when the first teeth erupt. Even if the baby only plays with the toothbrush in their mouth, it gets them used to a routine of brushing two to three times a day. And remember…do not use toothpaste until the child is older because you don’t want them to "eat" the toothpaste.
Cosmetic dentistry is the art (and science) of taking the smile you have and turning it into the smile you want. Whether your teeth have been damaged by stains and discolorations, chips and cracks, tooth decay, or minor sizing and spacing problems, the dentists at Park Crossing Dentistry in Charlotte, NC offer a number of effective procedures to improve the appearance and function of your teeth.

A smile makeover can be as simple as a one-hour in-office teeth whitening procedure at Park Crossing Dentistry, to fixing dental imperfections like cracked or chipped teeth with cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers. Some of the most common cosmetic and restorative dental options include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Cosmetic bonding
- Crowns and bridges
- One hour in-office professional teeth whitening
Park Crossing Dentistry also offers Invisalign, a flexible and non-invasive alternative to traditional braces which uses removable clear aligner trays to gradually shift the teeth into the proper alignment.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for Me?
Even healthy teeth experience wear and tear over time due to everything from genetics, diet and lifestyle, and involuntary habits like teeth grinding. You may brush and floss every day and visit the dentist every six months for a professional dental cleaning and check up, but still experience staining and discoloration, or chipped and unevenly spaced teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can make over your smile and improve your oral health as well as your self-esteem and overall quality of life. If you are unhappy with how your teeth look and would like to improve minor size, shape, color, or spacing issues, a cosmetic dental procedure may be right for you.
