Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our guests and their families during this difficult time in our community. My family and I are currently with family outside of Wilmington not knowing when we will be able to come back. With this said, Porters Neck Dentistry will be closed this week due to the storm and flooding. I am hoping we will be up and running next week. Please call our phones and press the emergency line if you have a dental emergency and I will do my best to return your call. The phones seem to be intermittently working. Again, stay safe and God bless.

Invisalign® Orthodontics

These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile no longer need to come from a mouth full of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an esthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional wire/bracket braces.

Get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign® Orthodontics!
