Highland Creek Modern Dentistry

Carrie P.
Dr. Patel was very fast and efficient. Lawrence was helpful and considerate of my comfort level. The entire team made sure I was aware of any potential issues and gave excellent feedback. I think the atmosphere in this place was amazing from the time I entered until I left. Great reception staff and all around great experience. I really felt like I was heard and cared for . Definitely will return for all other dental needs.
Fran F.
First time at Highland Creek Modern Dentistry and I love it. I had a wonderful experience. The office was very clean and bright. The staff was very professional and Dr. Patel was so warm, personable and made sure I was comfortable. She was very thorough in explaining my dental needs and concerns. Loved her!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place.
Shayla F.
My son and I both went here for a routine exam and cleaning. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The office was very clean,open and practical. The front desk was very nice and knowledgeable in explaining some of my general insurance questions. Dr. Patel was also very nice and very thorough when explaining what she was doing and our treatment plans at the end. I could not have been happier with the service. The rest of my family will now go here too.
Nirali P.
Dr. Patel and her team are amazing! From checking in to getting my teeth cleaned, the entire process was seamless. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a dentist
Bethany R.
In a world where it takes forever to get any kind of medical appointment, I needed a reliable dentist- *quickly* - following serious trauma to my front tooth. Dr. Patel was beyond helpful and efficient in providing me the appropriate care that I needed as well as eased my nerves throughout the process. Our family has been looking for a new dentist for a while now and there is no doubt we will be continuing our dental care at this practice! Not to mention, her office space is beautiful, warm, and welcoming!
Allyson P.
I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Patel. She is so warm, personable, and thorough in her explanations of every step. It's clear that she's trying to do the best thing for you and what you're most comfortable, instead of racking up your bill (a problem I had with the last dentist I tried). Her office is lovely and modern, her staff all incredibly kind, and the scheduling and online portal tools are incredibly convenient. I am definitely a patient for life after my first visit today.
Janet K.
Dr Patel was amazing! Her office is so bright and fresh and clean and her patient care is the best I’ve ever experienced. I will never go to another dentist here in the Charlotte area.
Shannon C.
As a new patient, I felt well taken care of from beginning to end. Dr. Patel, Glenn and Melissa were all so caring and exemplified the true meaning of professional patient care. I will definitely be returning and referring family and friends to the Highland Creek Modern Dentistry practice.
Matthew F.
Best dental visit experience ever. Friendly informative staff. We found our new family dentist!
Megan B.
Such a wonderful experience (and I hate the dentist haa). This office was kind, helpful and enjoyable.
Went in for a cleaning and I was extremely pleased with how nice everyone was. The space looks really good and I will be returning with the rest of my family.
Alberto O.
Dr. Patel and staff are so awesome. Wonderful experience
Laurie H.
Everyone is so nice! By far, the best dental experience I’ve ever had. I’d recommend to all!

Why Do Teeth Become Stained?

  • Age: As we age, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth becomes thinner, revealing the darker, yellowish layer of dentin underneath.
  • Diet: Certain foods and drinks, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark berries, contain pigments that can stain teeth over time.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking or chewing tobacco can cause teeth to become yellow or brown over time.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can allow plaque and tartar to build up on teeth, leading to discoloration and staining.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Arianna talking to a patient

How Does In-office Teeth Whitening Work?

At Highland Creek Modern Dentistry, we offer in-office Zoom teeth whitening, which is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile in just one visit. Here's how it works:

  • Preparation: Before we begin whitening, we'll clean your teeth to remove any surface stains and debris.
  • Application: Next, we'll apply a special whitening gel to your teeth. The gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down the stains on your teeth and lifts them away.
  • Activation: Once the gel is applied, we'll activate it using a special light. This light helps speed up the whitening process and ensures the gel is evenly distributed across your teeth.
  • Results: After about an hour, we'll remove the gel and you'll be able to see the results of your teeth whitening treatment right away! Your teeth will be several shades brighter, leaving you with a dazzling, confident smile.

The Positive Impacts of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening has many benefits, both aesthetic and emotional. Some of the positive impacts of teeth whitening include:

  • Increased Confidence: A brighter, whiter smile can help you feel more confident and self-assured in social and professional settings.
  • Youthful Appearance: Whiter teeth can make you look younger and more vibrant, helping to combat the signs of aging.
  • Improved Oral Health: Teeth whitening can help motivate patients to take better care of their teeth and maintain good oral hygiene habits.
  • Lasting Results: With proper care, teeth whitening results can last for several months or even years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are home teeth whitening kits effective?

Home teeth whitening kits can be effective at brightening teeth, but the results may not be as dramatic as in-office whitening. It is important to follow the instructions carefully and use reputable products to avoid damaging the teeth or gums.

Can you whiten your teeth naturally?

Some natural remedies may help brighten teeth, such as oil pulling, brushing with baking soda, or using activated charcoal. However, the effectiveness of these methods may vary, and they may not provide the same level of results as professional teeth whitening.

What are the side effects of teeth whitening?

The most common side effects of teeth whitening include temporary sensitivity, gum irritation, and uneven whitening. These side effects are usually mild and can be managed with proper aftercare.

Can teeth whitening damage enamel?

When performed by a qualified dental professional, teeth whitening is generally considered safe and should not damage the enamel. However, overuse of certain whitening products or DIY methods may cause enamel damage or sensitivity.

Does teeth whitening cause sensitivity?

Some people may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort during or after teeth whitening treatment. This can usually be managed with desensitizing agents or by adjusting the treatment duration.

How long does teeth whitening last?

The duration of teeth whitening results varies depending on the individual and the method used. In-office Zoom whitening can last up to a year with proper care, while take-home trays may need to be used more frequently to maintain results.

What are the best teeth whitening methods?

There are several effective teeth whitening methods available, including in-office Zoom whitening, take-home whitening trays, and over-the-counter whitening strips. The best method for you will depend on your specific needs and goals.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes, teeth whitening is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified dental professional. However, some people may experience temporary sensitivity or irritation during or after treatment.

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening involves applying a bleaching agent, usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to the surface of the teeth. The bleaching agent breaks down the stains on the teeth, leaving them brighter and whiter.
