Learn About Some of Our Featured Treatments

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are paired with dental crowns, dentures, or dental bridges to replace missing teeth. This restorative dentistry procedure provides amazing stability for your smile and is the only treatment that can stop and prevent jawbone atrophy. Dr. Carpenter has over 500 hours of implant education.

Discover the Benefits of Dental Implants

Teeth Whitening

Even with the best oral hygiene, stains and discoloration happen. Professional whitening can brighten your teeth in as little as one treatment for dazzling results. Our Kenilworth dentist uses a powerful yet safe whitening solution so you can see results much sooner than store-bought whitening products.

Learn More About Teeth Whitening


Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are placed over the front surface of your teeth to conceal cosmetic imperfections such as cracks, chips, stains, and minor misalignments. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is an incredibly effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are durable porcelain shells that are fitted over a damaged tooth. They are also used following root canal therapy to provide strength and protection to the tooth and can be paired with a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.

"We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!"
