Q: What If I’m Scared Of The Dentist?
Carolina Bright Smiles puts the “bright” in smiles in more ways than one.

Q: How Can I Get Rid Of Bad Breath?
Bad breath can often be avoided through twice-a-day tooth brushing and daily flossing and even by maintaining your regular six-month dental checkups. But if you have a case that can’t be beat, the cause could be gum disease. Call us for a consultation to get to the bottom of your bad breath.
Q: Do Root Canals Hurt?
Modern dentistry is mostly pain-free and, at Carolina Bright Smiles, that includes root canals too! We have Hillsborough, NC’s only root canal specialist, endodontist Dr. Wayne King. A tooth in need of a root canal hurts because it has an infection deep inside. Dr. King will clear out the infection and protect your tooth against future infection with a dental crown.
