For many people, the dawn of summer means warm nights at the drive-in under a starlit sky, afternoons spent soaking up the sun feeling the sand between your toes, or a car full of kids armed with swimmies and water toys ready for a day at the local pool.

For others who struggle with feelings of insecurity about their appearance, summer can be dreadful. If you’re self-conscious about the way you look, then this new season has you worried about wearing shorts, short sleeves, and swimsuits.

When you lack confidence about your appearance, you don’t look forward to being out in public the way other people do. In fact, you probably go out of your way to avoid social interaction as much as possible. During the summer months, there’s so much pressure to look a certain way. If you’re someone who’s embarrassed about your teeth, it can feel even worse because it’s something you have to deal with all year long.

If this sounds familiar, today’s blog is for you! Our team at Shook Dental Care wants you to know about our options in cosmetic dentistry so that you can enhance your smile, look great, and feel confident this summer. We’re sharing some of the ways you can achieve that in our San Pedro dental office!

How About A Whiter, Brighter Summer Smile?

What if we told you that your new and improved, more beautiful smile was just a 20-minute procedure away? You probably wouldn’t believe it, but thanks to our advanced dental technology, your smile can be up to four to six shades lighter in just one quick visit. This is all made possible through our Biolase Laser Whitening.

Or what about a smile that’s up to eight shades whiter? That’s all thanks to our Zoom! Whitening treatment. And the best part about Zoom! is that you can opt for a single, in-office treatment or a simple take-home treatment that’s convenient, effective, and can be worked into your schedule as you see fit. Your whiter, brighter smile for summer is only a phone call away!

How About A More Balanced Summer Smile?

Sometimes, when a patient isn’t happy with his or her smile, it’s not even about their teeth at all. Sometimes it’s all about their gums. If you feel like too much of your gums show when you smile, it can make your teeth look smaller than they really are.

Shook Dental Care can fix that with our crown lengthening and gummy smile treatment. By adjusting your gumline and exposing more of your teeth, you’ll have a beautifully balanced-looking smile!

How About A Restored Summer Smile?

Maybe your teeth are damaged from some kind of injury or accident. Perhaps your teeth are misshapen from years of normal wear and tear. Whatever the cause, when your teeth need repair, it’s incredibly important to address it with the proper restorative treatment.

This is a special issue because it goes beyond appearances. Yes, dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or even dental veneers, can take your smile from flawed to flawless. But even more important than that, they all offer a durable shield of protection over damaged or decayed teeth so that whatever dental problems you have don’t become even bigger threats to your oral and overall health later.

How About A Totally Transformed Summer Smile?

What if you have so many different imperfections with your smile that you don’t even know where to start? Shook Dental Care has a solution for that, too!

Our total smile makeover can give your smile a complete overhaul. It begins with a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to make sure there are no oral health issues going on or to make sure any issues you do have are taken care of first.

Then it’s all about creating a comprehensive treatment plan that would include any cosmetic or restorative procedure you would need to give you a smile that looks great and makes you feel just as incredible!
