Meet the Doctor
Kenneth W. Carson, DDS
Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information
Same Day Crowns
Using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), crowns can be made in one office visit while the patient waits. After taking a digital scan of the mouth using an intraoral camera, the computer produces a 3-D image of the teeth and gums and suggests the ideal dimensions of the needed crown. The dentist fine-tunes the virtual restoration and a "milling" machine carves the crown out of a ceramic block, ready to be bonded to the patient's tooth. The entire process takes less than two hours.More information

Dental Services at Dental Care of Camden
At Dental Care of Camden, we offer a wide variety of dental services to meet your oral health care requirements in one convenient location.
Regular Check-Ups and Professional Cleaning
At Dental Care of Camden, we firmly believe that the best dental care is preventative dental care. Our goal is to help you maintain an effective routine for oral hygiene so that you are able to prevent tooth decay and avoid the cost and effort of dealing with cavities and gum disease. You can safeguard your smile with a visit every six months for a professional cleaning and dental exam. The dental team here at Dental Care of Camden can remove stubborn plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing simply can't handle as well as identify the warning signs of decay and damage that would normally go unnoticed.
As you know, children are special people. We do everything we can to make every visit stress free and fun for them. At the same time, we want it to be educational and constructive.
We usually like to begin seeing them when they are two, just to look and make sure things are developing properly. We like to begin treating them when they are three. The first visit is often just a play visit where we familiarize them with our office personnel and the items we use to clean their teeth. If they will allow, we will clean his/her teeth at that first appointment.
We like to see our young patients, ages 3-11, four times a year. Two of these visits will be free. The two paid visits are visits with a hygienist. The two free visits are usually with an assistant but possibly the hygienist or the doctor. We think four times a year is important to help the young patient feel comfortable in a dental setting, to find lesions when they are small, and to clean and apply fluoride to prevent decay. We educate at each of these visits and our hope is that by age 11 your young patient will be proficient at dental hygiene. Until that time, please help your young patient every day-not only with his/her hygiene but also with a diet low in sugar.
Note: If an appointment for a free visit is broken, that appointment is not rescheduled. The next appointment will be a paid appointment in 3 months.
At Dental Care of Camden, we want your smile to look as good as it feels. Our dental team can help you smile with pride by effectively treating problems that range from discoloration to misalignment.
Teeth Whitening Take Home Trays
Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. Now, you can achieve a dazzling smile with a customized teeth-whitening kit that utilizes personalized trays and a powerful gel that you apply yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Dental Care of Camden is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Camden, South Carolina. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional teeth straightening methods such as metal braces. Instead of repeated trips to an orthodontist, your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports. Working adults are able to maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.
Composite Resin and Porcelain Veneers
If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, dental veneers may be right for you. Veneers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are permanently bonded to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. Dental veneers can also provide relief from the tooth pain associated with worn enamel.
Same Day Crowns with CEREC
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a method of computer-aided dentistry for creating dental crowns. The process allows dentists to construct, produce and insert individual ceramic restorations directly at the point of treatment (chairside) in a single appointment, rather than over multiple appointments with lab work in between.
A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could require tooth removal and cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
Regardless of how meticulous you are about your oral health care, problems can always occur. Whether the cause is physical trauma or untreated decay, Dr. Carson and his team will work with you to find the dental treatment option that is perfectly suited to your individual oral health needs.
We want you to be well informed about your dental treatment options so that you will be satisfied with your care. Dr. Carson is dedicated to providing the people of Camden, South Carolina with dental services that are effective, affordable, and convenient.
If you are unsure if we provide a particular service to meet your individual need, please do not hesitate to call us for further inquiry; we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
