Need Help Finding A Particular Style Of Kitchen Cabinet Door Hinge

I need help identifying whether a particular kitchen cabinet door hinge that I'm looking for exists.

Assuming I'm using the correct terminology, I have face frame kitchen cabinets that have doors which have external hinges with an 3/8" overlay and 3/8" insert.

What I wish to do using the existing cabinets and doors is remount the doors with totally concealed hinges. (After I fill in the existing screw holes and repaint them)

Does anyone know if totally concealed hinges exist for my current cabinets and doors and if so what are they called and where can I buy them?

Thank you

Probably the best you will come up with is a semi-concealed hinge.

Picture is an inside view. From outside you will see a small slot cut in door which contains the pivot part of hinge.

Do a search for Rockler, providers of specialty hardware.

These hinges should also be available though at big hardware stores.

Practice cutting slot on scrap to ensure you have your measurements dialed in.

These will look much better than face mounted hinges, and close better.
