Mention the word “dentist” and unpleasant memories come to mind. Regular maintenance, however, can reduce or eliminate traumatic visits to your dentist. Aside from basic care, cosmetic dentistry is a more popular option. Smokers, or imbibers of wine, sweet tea or coffee know that, over time, stains set in and may require teeth whitening services. These are the best places in Charlotte to beautify your smile no matter your teeth-yellowing vice.

Michael L. Stout, DDS

700 S. Torrence St., Suite 220
Charlotte, NC 28204
(704) 332-7737

Michael Stout touts “gentle dentistry” as his specialty. Together with his staff, cosmetic as well as basic services are provided as painlessly as possible. Bleaching is listed on his website as his method for whitening teeth, but be prepared to discuss what’s best for your smile and teeth. He also offers resin composites, aka tooth-colored fillings, rather than colorful — and really unattractive — mercury fillings of the past.

South Charlotte DentalWorks

7510 Pineville Matthews Road
Charlotte, NC 28226
(888) 568-6684

Free whitening is a part of general procedures for regular patients at most DentalWorks locations. In addition to professional whitening, purchase whitening options that can be used at home to maintain that smile. This is especially important for heavy coffee drinkers. Its “Zoom!” procedure claims to brighten an average of eight shades in one application, removing years of damage in just one shot. Expect a slightly more corporate feel at this comprehensive facility.

Beaming White

4400 Sharon Road
Charlotte, NC 28211
(704) 909-7177

Specializing in advanced teeth whitening, Beaming White promises 99 percent of its patients will leave satisfied. It does acknowledge, however, that there are some patients who will not get desired results if they have stains due to using the antibiotic tectracycline or as a result of florosis. Office procedures and home products are offered to give patients optimum, lasting results. Beaming White boasts the title of largest manufacturer of whitening products in the beauty industry.

Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry

6849 Fairview Rd., Ste. 200
Charlotte, NC 28210
(704) 364-4711

Cosmetic care is a specialty for the Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, which specializes in “Zoom!” whitening service. Its deep-bleaching techniques have even been shown to defeat tetracycline stains. A “smile gallery” on the web site with before and after photographs shows what sort of improvement average patients see following treatment here. Expect top-notch services with the people who host dental seminars throughout the state.

ProWhite Teeth Whitening

4400 Sharon Road
Charlotte, NC 28211
(704) 909-7177

Procedures lasting from 20 minutes (Pro White) to three hours (Zoom!) promise you’ll easily find the right whitening match for your smile. Over-the-counter products for home use are also recommended to maintain white smiles. Patients may walk in for the ProWhite service, but appointments are required for the longer services. Conveniently located at the South Park Mall, this is the perfect option for in-and-out whitening services.
