"The eyes are the window to the soul, and the smile is the window to the heart."
So what does YOUR smile say about your heart? Is it a joyful, laughing, happy smile that lights up the room every time you grin? Or is it one that you hide behind your hand each time you laugh, or that you cover with tight lips every time someone pulls out a camera, because you're embarrassed to let anyone see your teeth?
In other words, does your smile warm the room like these do?
Debra Kennedy is a Beauty Pageant Queen and talk show host, so she truly knows the importance of a dazzling smile. Terrie Reeves is the Founder and President of the Carolina Wellness Coalition, and Richard Canovai is a now-comfortably-retired businessman who told Dr. Payet before they started on his smile: "Dr. Payet, I want everyone to see my smile when I enter the room before they see me!" Debra, Terrie, and Richard, among the many patients of Dr. Payet who've experienced the total change in confidence after undergoing a Smile Makeover, simply LOVE to smile now, and it's easy to see why!

So Just What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Simply put, Cosmetic Dentistry involves all of the different procedures that can be used to transform your smile from "blah" to "WOW!" For some, a Smile Transformation could be as simple as Six-Month Braces and Teeth Whitening; for others, perhaps 10 veneers on the top teeth and Teeth Whitening for the lower teeth; for others, it might involve multiple types of treatment, including porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, and even dental implants to create a Complete Smile Reconstruction.
We offer a fast, practically invisible way to straighten your teeth in the time between 2 cleanings! These clear braces and space-age, tooth-colored wires move teeth quickly for dramatic and very affordable Smile Makeovers.
No dental insurance? No Problem!
The Quality Dental Plan makes dentistry affordable
for the entire family, with savings up to 20% off and no complicated clauses or annual maximums.
Scared of losing your teeth due to gum disease? No longer! We use the Periolase MVP-7 laser to perform Laser Periodontal TherapyTM, the ONLY FDA-approved treatment proven to regenerate gum attachment and new bone.
The art of creating a beautiful Smile Makeover is born of years of dedication and experience, great communication to know what you want to change, and the eye of an artist.
Artistically crafted, thin, beautiful porcelain veneers are the most well-known method of Cosmetic Dentistry to create dramatic smile makeovers, having been popularized by shows such as "Extreme Makeover" and "The Swan." Sometimes we can do "No-Prep Veneers," which means we do little or no drilling on the teeth, and often no anesthetic is needed. Most of the time at least some tooth-shaping is required, but given that veneers can be made as thin as 0.3mm and still be beautiful and strong once bonded properly, it's usually not much.
When teeth are badly broken down by grinding, cavities, accidents, or acid erosion, crowns are the way to go. For many years now, it has been possible to make metal-free, beautiful porcelain crowns. And with Dr. Charles Payet, often these crowns can be made in just 1 appointment due to the CEREC AC Bluecam technology. They're just as strong and natural-looking as those from a dental lab, and they require no second appointment or temporary crown, so you're done right away!
Recent advancements in dental ceramics now make it truly possible to create metal-free, completely natural-looking, strong, and long-lasting dental bridges. And while it's not yet possible to make a bridge in just a single appointment, with the CEREC AC Bluecam, Dr. Payet can take DIGITAL impressions that are even more accurate than those taken with all the "goop" that noone likes. Faster and better results are the reality of digital dentistry!
This is by far one of our most popular treatment options, for the simple reason that they're much faster than most adults think possible, they're very affordable, they make a dramatic difference, and best of all, there's practially no irreversible changes to the teeth such as with Dental Crowns. Of course, sometimes we use Six-Month Braces to position certain teeth more ideally so that we can then do more conservative treatment, requiring less drilling, for the final dental veneers.
