If you want a really clean look, you could avoid fasteners altogether and rout a rabbet in the bottom of the carcass for the face plate to rest in, held in by a full width cleat on the top of the carcass. make the face plate shorter than the overall height of the carcass, drill a finger hole to allow the face plate to be lifted up to clear the rabbet, then pulled down and out to clear the cleat at the top.
