Saving Teeth with Restorative Care
Drs. Stephen and Scott Carter are passionate about helping patients achieve full, beautiful smiles. Our conservative treatment plans are focused on saving your natural tooth structure by using minimally invasive treatments whenever possible. To meet these goals, we utilize a local lab to create custom restorations that result in a lasting investment in your smile. Our restorations are fabricated with the highest quality materials to provide both strength and function in concert with beautiful esthetics.
Whether you are missing one or more teeth, have chipped or decayed enamel, we offer an array of esthetic restorations, such as:
If a tooth is weak due to cracks or decay, a crown may be recommended to strengthen the tooth and protect it from continued deterioration. For more extensive services, such as root canal treatment, crowns are used to protect and seal the tooth, preventing tooth fracture or infection. We use all porcelain zirconia and e.max® crowns for a cosmetic enhancement that matches the rest of your smile.
Made from thin wafers of porcelain, dental veneers are recommended for patients who are looking to improve their smile but have otherwise healthy teeth. Porcelain veneers are shade-matched, and can cover small imperfections such as discoloration, chips, misalignment, and gaps between neighboring teeth.
Bridges are a treatment option for patients missing one or more teeth. In order to replace the missing tooth, neighboring teeth are used as anchors. They serve as support for the fake tooth, or the pontic, which replaces the missing tooth.
Treatment Alternatives: Replacing Failing Teeth
At Carter Family Dentistry, we do our utmost to provide teeth-saving solutions. However, for patients who qualify, we provide dental implant solutions.
Dental implants are made out of a biocompatible titanium alloy that acts as the missing tooth root. This innovative treatment replaces the entire tooth and supports bone preservation, preventing facial collapse. Depending on the number of missing teeth in your smile, there are a variety of restorations that can be added to Nobel BioCare® implants such as:
- Single implant-supported porcelain crowns
- Multiple implant-supported porcelain bridges
- Multiple implant-supported dentures using Zest® Locator attachments

He walks patients through the whole treatment process, and answers any questions they may have about their procedure. He is focused on maintaining optimal dental health and beautiful smiles.
