Know When It’s Time To Get Cosmetic Dentistry! [BLOG]

When you have a sudden dental problem, like a toothache, infection, or cavity, you probably don’t have to be talked into going to the dentist to get it taken care of.

But there’s something about cosmetic problems that many of us tend to dismiss, ignore, or talk ourselves out of fixing.

That would be a luxury, we tell ourselves. It’s not a need.

Know When It’s Time To Get Cosmetic Dentistry!

But don’t you need confidence? Don’t you deserve to like the way you look?
Wouldn’t your life be better if you had a beautiful smile that made you feel proud and happy?
Yes, yes, and yes!

At Shook Dental Care, we offer a wide selection of cosmetic dentistry services to suit your needs.

You read that correctly!

Your needs.

Cosmetic flaws, like chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth, can lead to oral health problems eventually, but even if they didn’t, your emotional wellness is just as important as your physical wellness. That’s why fixing those flaws doesn’t require some sort of complicated justification.
But if you still need convincing, here are some of the ways you can tell that it’s time to get cosmetic dentistry in San Pedro, CA!

*When Your Smile Turns Dull*

It doesn’t take much to turn a bright, healthy smile into a dull, dingy one you’re no longer proud of.
While your teeth may be strong and healthy, surface stains can be an embarrassing smile problem that zaps your confidence.

With our fast, safe, and powerful teeth whitening system, those stains can be lifted, lightening the color of your teeth several shades and giving you a younger-looking smile you’ll feel like showing off!

*When You’re Pained By Deep Stains*

Some stains on your teeth are too dark, too stubborn, or too deep to be lifted by professional whitening.
If your dental discoloration goes beyond surface stains, you might feel powerless to do anything about it. But there are solutions at Shook Dental Care!

Cosmetic crowns and dental veneers can mask these sort of problems because they’re placed over deeply-stained teeth.

In fact, veneers are actually resistant to stains, so when you care for them properly, you can have a radiantly white smile for up to twenty years or longer!

*When You’re Insecure About Dental Damage*

Over time, no matter how well you care for your teeth, they can become worn, misshapen, and uneven.
Your teeth can also become damaged after years of grinding, nail biting, or snacking on hard, crunchy foods.

Chips, cracks, and dings on your tooth enamel can start out small and barely noticeable, but those imperfections can worsen over the years, leaving you with an unsightly smile that makes you feel terribly insecure.

With bonding, tooth contouring, or dental veneers, you can restore the youthful flawlessness of your smile, and even protect your damaged teeth from future complications.

*When You’re Unhappy About Your Crooked Teeth*

Maybe you’ve had crooked or gapped teeth for most of your life, or perhaps you wore braces when you were in grade school but haven’t been very diligent about wearing your retainer over the years and are unhappy with how your teeth have shifted since then.

Being unhappy with your bite alignment or the position of your teeth can make each day feel like an eternity.

If you don’t like your crooked smile, whether you’ve hated it for a lifetime or a year, then change it!
We offer solutions like dental veneers and Invisalign, alternative to traditional braces that still result in a straight, beautiful smile!

*When You’re Financially Stable*

The cost of cosmetic dental treatment varies widely, depending on the kind of work you need and the results you hope to achieve.

High-quality cosmetic dentistry is a wise investment, so if you’re looking for a dramatic transformation that lasts with dental veneers, for example, it’s good to wait until you’re financially stable enough to pay for it.

But not all procedures cost the same, and some are much more affordable than you might think.

Teeth whitening and tooth bonding, for example, can radically improve your appearance and confidence without a huge price tag!

The good thing about cosmetic dentistry is that a little can go a very long way!

*When You’re Tired Of Hiding*

We all need human connection.
To feel heard, understood, valued, and loved.

That’s why it’s not healthy to stay in hiding, to isolate yourself from the outside world. You deserve to have an active, fulfilling social life, which means that anything keeping you from that should be dealt with.

Like your smile insecurities.

Avoiding social situations may seem like the easiest solution, but it’s unsustainable if you want to live your best life. Cosmetic dentistry can help!

Fixing your dental flaws will give you the confidence to relax, be yourself, and have a good time in any setting.

No more hiding. No more covering your mouth when you laugh. No more dodging the cameras.

Just confident, beautiful smiling for the rest of your life!
