- Can I Get Braces for Adults in San Pedro? A:
We have something better than braces! Invisalign is a system that straightens teeth with comfortable clear aligners, not metal braces. You can remove the aligners for meals, so you’re able to enjoy your favorite foods with no worries about trying to clean them out of braces later. Many if not most adults are good candidates for Invisalign. We offer free Invisalign consultations, so you have nothing to lose to see if this orthodontic treatment is right for you.
- Can I Get Dental Implants in San Pedro? A:
Yes, we offer dental implant restorations. Dr. Shook will evaluate your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If implants are your best option, she’ll help arrange your implant placement with a nearby top specialist. When your implants are ready, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Shook will add a custom dental restoration to complete your smile. Depending on your unique situation, you may receive a dental implant crown, bridge, or an implant-supported denture, either full or partial. One popular implant option is an All-on-6 procedure during which she attaches a full arch of replacement teeth to six implants.
- How Can I Whiten My Smile in San Pedro? A:
We offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including several that can brighten your smile. To remove surface stains, you can choose a professional whitening treatment. We offer in-office and at-home whitening treatments from respected brand Zoom, or we can break up and remove stains with our dental laser. You can also cover more stubborn stains, or change the shape of your teeth and dramatically improve your smile, with dental veneers or dental bonding. Dr. Shook can help you determine which treatment will work best for your smile.
- How Fast Can I Get Help in a Dental Emergency in San Pedro? A:
In most cases you can get same-day emergency dental care at our office. We offer same-day appointments for emergencies during our regular business hours to everyone, even new patients. Existing patients also can receive urgent care after hours.
