Select the Right Cosmetic Dental Treatments for Your Smile

According to a study conducted by the American Dental Association (ADA), one in four adults avoids smiling due to the condition of their mouth and teeth. That’s certainly no way to live! Whether you need a subtle improvement or a total smile makeover, we offer several cosmetic options that make the difference in your grin. We offer:

  • Dental Veneers This is a great solution to conceal smile problems such as chips, small cracks, gaps, discoloration, and misshapen teeth. Dr. Shook will affix thin custom-made ceramic or porcelain “shells” to the front of your teeth.
  • Tooth Bonding – This is another procedure that hides chips, cracks, and other flaws. With bonding, we will carefully apply tooth-colored composite resin directly to your teeth. It can usually be done in just one visit!
  • Teeth Whitening We offer several whitening treatments to brighten your smile, including in-office, at-home, and laser whitening treatment. We’ll work with you to determine which is best suited for your teeth.
  • Invisalign To fix crooked teeth with a nearly invisible solution, we offer clear aligners as a wonderful alternative to standard metal braces.
  • Teeth Contouring – This quick cosmetic dental treatment improves the appearance of your teeth by changing their shape. It’s great for fixing issues like a chip in your tooth or evening out the length of your teeth.
  • Crown Lengthening – With crown lengthening, adjusting the level of your gumline, we can lengthen the look of too-short teeth and make sure your smile looks terrific.
  • Gum Reshaping – One of the most important aspects of a great-looking smile is a proper ratio of tooth to gum. If your gums dominate your smile, we can restore balance with a gummy smile treatment using a laser.

You can even combine treatments for a total smile makeover! To explore how a cosmetic dentist in San Pedro can improve your smile, call Shook Dental Care at 310-982-6333. You can also contact us via our convenient online form.

Common Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

What can cosmetic dentistry do?

Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth so you can enjoy a more attractive smile – and everything that comes with it, like enhanced self-confidence. Cosmetic dentistry can give you a younger-looking smile by covering stains and other signs of wear and tear. With our wide variety of cosmetic services, you’ll be able to change any aspect of your smile that you don’t like.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

Cosmetic dentistry covers a wide range of services, and each patient has different needs and goals. Because of this, it isn’t possible to give you a price on your cosmetic treatment without first performing an exam and working up a treatment plan. Once we know exactly what you want and need, we can give you an estimate on your smile investment.

Is cosmetic dentistry worth it?

Cosmetic dentistry can be life-changing for some patients. We have helped people who were once afraid to open their mouths become proud to show off their smiles. Your self-confidence is always worth investing in treatment that will help you feel comfortable with your appearance.

Is cosmetic dentistry permanent?

A few cosmetic treatments are permanent, including gum reshaping and teeth contouring. However, most cosmetic treatments will need to be repeated to maintain your beautiful results. Treatments can last anywhere from several months (teeth whitening) to well over a decade (veneers). Your dentist will provide more information on the longevity of our solutions during your initial consultation.
