At Dr. Dan Carroll's Aesthetic Dentistry
Center, we believe in providing the same
quality of care to our patients that we would
provide to our own families—nothing less.
By the same token, we would never provide treatment
to you that we would not recommend to our own
In addition to the dental procedures that we
perform out of our own office, we also work with
several excellent specialists. If you require
a more complex therapeutic regimen or are interested
in a specific treatment that we don’t provide,
we will assist you in seeing the appropriate specialist/provider
of that care.
no reason to hide behind less-than-perfect teeth.
After all, a clean, healthy mouth and a beautiful
smile are your best assets. Our practice specializes
in a wide array of cosmetic dentistry procedures,
including bonding, crowns, and veneers, and we
aim to give you the dazzling results you want.
Here are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry
procedures we offer:
A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked,
or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and
painlessly restore your smile’s natural
beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of
plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth,
strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable
from natural teeth. To find out if bonding is
the right option for you, please contact us today.
An excellent alternative to crowns, veneers can
perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding
chips, correcting misalignment, and creating
uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin,
customized material designed to slide over
the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long
lasting, and are relatively easy to apply.

Many of us feel that our smiles are most striking
when our teeth look especially white, but unfortunately,
soft drinks, coffee, tea, and tobacco can leave
behind ugly stains. To help you restore your gleaming,
bright white smile and to give you an added boost
of confidence, we offer several whitening options.
Please contact us today to find out more about
these options and which one is best for you.
Gone are the days when tooth ailments and cavities
could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings.
Today, modern, tooth-colored fillings made of
durable resin or porcelain can be bonded to your
teeth for a stronger, more natural-looking effect.
These revolutionary fillings are virtually undetectable
and are easy to apply. To find out if tooth-colored
fillings are a good option for you, please contact
Inlays & Onlays
Similar to fillings, inlays and onlays fill cavities
and other areas of trauma or decay in the teeth.
They are also called indirect fillings. Unlike
regular fillings, however, which are composed
of a soft material that is molded into the tooth
during the dental visit, indirect fillings are
shaped in a dental lab and then firmly cemented
into place by the dentist. Inlays fit into a cavity,
while onlays lay on top of the tooth to build
up a damaged cusp. They are generally much more
durable and longer lasting than regular fillings.
If you are interested in finding out more about
inlays or onlays, please contact us today.
Also called caps, crowns are natural-looking covers
that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked,
badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. Crowns
will minimize physical discomfort in teeth and
provide support to damaged or weakened teeth.
Ultimately, crowns can improve the overall appearance
of your smile while making your teeth more resistant
to injury. For more information about crowns,
please contact us today.
Sometimes a bit more work is needed to give you
the smile you want. If you are missing teeth,
having trouble speaking or chewing, or are noticing
strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure
to help make your mouth healthy and beautiful
again. Bridges, sometimes referred to as fixed
partial dentures, literally bridge gaps between
teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking,
artificial teeth. Bridges are semi-permanent –
they can only be removed by a dentist –
and are comfortable and can strengthen teeth.
To find out if bridges are the right option for
you, please contact us today.
Twice-daily brushings and regular flossing are
excellent for maintenance between office visits,
but a healthy mouth and beautiful smile require
routine general and preventative care to stay
that way. Our practice offers general care
that includes regular oral examinations and
cleanings. Our preventative care includes fluoride,
sealant, and periodontal (gum disease) treatments
designed to help you maintain your smile’s
health and beauty. Keep your teeth and gums
strong and disease-free. Contact our office
today to schedule a cleaning or consultation.
Non-surgical Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Unfortunately, periodontal (gum) disease can lead
to more than just an unsightly smile – it
can cause loss of teeth, and eventually, if left
untreated, serious health problems. Called gingivitis
in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused
by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque)
that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Using
a variety of non-surgical techniques, we can help
you reverse the damage caused by periodontal disease
and restore your mouth to a healthy, beautiful
state. For more information, please contact our
Sometimes oral surgery is the best option to help
you achieve maximum oral health and a flawless
smile. Dr. Carroll may suggest a surgical procedure
to you for treatment of your teeth, gums, soft
tissues, joints, or jaws. He will refer you to
a specialist, if he feels it is in your best interest.

Removable Partial Dentures
Today’s technology allows us to fully customize
dentures to fit your mouth precisely and to exactly
match the color of your existing teeth. A good
fit ensures chewing comfort and added strength.
Removable or partial dentures fill gaps left
by missing teeth. Partial dentures are held in
place with metal clasps or precision devices
(tooth-colored, discreet clasps) that are attached
to natural teeth. Usually made of resin or metal,
partial dentures allow more comfortable and effective
chewing, improve speech, and prevent sagging
of the cheeks and lips. To find out if partial
dentures are right for you, please contact our
Removable Complete Dentures
Complete dentures are an excellent option for
people who have lost all their teeth. Precisely
designed and molded to fit one’s mouth,
full dentures slide over the gums and are held
in place with strong cheek and mouth muscles.
They allow for comfortable chewing and keep
the mouth and its surrounding features in proper
alignment. To learn more about complete dentures,
please contact us today.
Dental Implants offer an amazing solution to missing
teeth. Implant dentistry is the most advanced
therapy available to replace teeth, or even a
single tooth. Not only do they look and feel like
real teeth, but dental implants allow you to enjoy
the function and confidence of natural teeth.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw or
cylinder which is surgically placed in the jawbone.The
implant replaces the root of the missing tooth,
providing an anchor for your new tooth/teeth.
The end result is a strong, secure tooth that
is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Because dental implants require surgery, they
are intended only for candidates with sufficient
bone and healthy gums. For more information about
dental implants, please contact us today.
We see many children whose upper and lower jaws
are improperly positioned or whose top jaws are
too narrow, causing a cross bite. To correct such
problems, we rely on removable and fixed orthodontic
appliances, such as functional appliances and
interceptive expansion appliances. Functional
appliances correct upper and lower alignment,
ultimately correcting the patient’s bite.
Conversely, interceptive expansion appliances
widen the upper arch, which is naturally supposed
to be wider than the bottom arch. We see many
adult patients who have uncorrected bite/alignment
problems, have experienced bite collapse due to
missing teeth, and have crowded teeth. Oftentimes,
orthodontic correction can greatly improve one's
quality of life from a functional, as well as
esthetic, standpoint. To learn more about these
treatment options, please contact us today.
Bite Guards (Occlusal
Splints, Night Guards)
Excessive clenching, grinding, or poor bite alignment
can strain your jaw joints and jaw musculature,
or injure your teeth, causing discomfort and,
often, severe pain. As the condition worsens,
dizziness, ear pain, head and neck pain, chewing
difficulties, muscle soreness, and even throat
pain may surface. To correct such problems, we
offer a variety of removable bite guards to help
restore balance between the teeth, muscles, and
joints. When worn, these guards prevent teeth
from touching one another, ultimately relaxing
the jaw muscles and alleviating pain. To learn
more about our splints and night guards, please
contact our practice today.
Custom Sports Mouth
Sports are advantageous for many reasons –
they’re fun, they build teamwork skills,
they offer excellent cardiovascular benefits,
and they are great to watch. But many types of
sports can put participants at risk for a dental
injury, whether that is cracking a tooth, losing
a tooth, or even breaking the jaw. Dr. Carroll
can custom design a sports guard to fit your mouth
by taking a cast model of your teeth. This guard,
which covers your upper teeth, is the best option
available for protecting your mouth from sports-related
injuries. They are custom made, which means they
are comfortable and won't interfere with breathing
and speaking. Contact us today to find out about
getting a custom sports mouth guard made for you
or your children.
Snoring can not only disturb the quality of sleep
for both snorers and their partners, but it can
also, in more severe cases, be dangerous. Snoring
appliances are custom-fit mouth devices that can
significantly reduce the level of snoring. They
work by moving the lower jaw into a more forward
position. This, in turn, increases the airflow
space through the mouth and throat and decreases
air friction and vibration. The result is a quieter
and more restful night’s sleep for all involved.
If you or someone you know is interested in learning
more about snoring appliances, please contact
Invisalign is an esthetic orthodontic technique that corrects malocclusions using
a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, comfortable, removable Aligners. This
is an option for straightening teeth without brackets and wires. Straighter teeth not
only improves your smile, but just as importantly, simplifies oral hygiene making
it easier to maintain your oral health. If you'd like to be able to eat, brush and floss
normally, while having your teeth straightened call for an appointment today.
Eating Less Appliance
The DDS System is a unique, patented approach that directly addresses the
problem of eating too much. It's a behavior modification system that teaches
you new eating habits. It utilizes a discreet oral appliance that is custom
made to fit you. It trains you to take smaller bites and eat more slowly. Eating
slowly allows you to feel satisfied with less food. If you want to retrain yourself
