Reconstruct Your Smile with Dr. John Carter in Midland, MI

Through a wide variety of procedures, Dr. Carter can help return your smile to its former beauty and, in many cases, improve your overall dental health as well. John Carter, DDS provides cosmetic dental treatment options in Midland, and to the surrounding communities of Sanford, Auburn, and Hope.

Porcelain Veneers

Many of our patients have simple cosmetic needs, so Dr. Carter makes sure to have some exceptionally cosmetic solutions on hand.

When dealing with stained teeth, for example, the first treatment most people think of is teeth whitening. While we offer teeth whitening services, certain stains may be too deeply set to lift with whitening procedures. For some patients interested in cosmetic dentistry, teeth may need to be both brightened and reshaped to close any unattractive gaps or create more uniformity. For these situations, our Midland dentist can provide porcelain veneers.

Veneers are thin layers of dental porcelain which are cemented onto teeth. Porcelain matches the color, texture, and shine of a naturally healthy tooth, so no one will notice the difference between your veneers and untreated teeth.

Cosmetic Restorations

Many cosmetic services not only improve the aesthetic quality of your smile, but also restore dental function. Our Midland cosmetic dentist can provide functional cosmetic restorations that include dental implants and crowns.

Dental implants can support various prostheses and are an excellent replacement for missing teeth. John Carter, DDS is able to both place the titanium implant posts into the jaw and add the restorations to the posts, once they have integrated into the jaw. Because of the versatility of implant treatment, Dr. Carter can use the implants to support porcelain crowns, fixed porcelain bridges, or full or partial dentures, depending on whether a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch needs to be replaced.

Dr. Carter can also provide porcelain crowns to protect existing teeth that are decayed or damaged. Like veneers, the porcelain used for crowns mimics the appearance of a naturally healthy tooth. However, crowns completely cover a decayed tooth and guard against everyday wear, where veneers only cover the front of a tooth to improve the smile’s appearance. Our Midland dentist can place tooth-colored crowns for a flawless, functional smile.
