"This office was awesome. First impression was a clean office and friendly attentive front office staff. Overall some of the friendliest accomadating staff i have seen in a while. My hygenist seemed knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable as well as did a good job with my teeth. Same with the dentist, you could tell he knew what he was doing. He put things in terms i could understand and took time to explain my situation. Overall im very happy with my visit and decision to come here."- S.S. / Google / Mar 23, 2020
"I love this dentist office!!! I recently moved out to Rhome and was in search of a new dentist. I found one extremely close, which I should have realized that close does not mean better. I used to be so comfortable I could fall asleep while having my teeth cleaned. The other place was painful, tense, unprofessional, an unexpected bill (when I was told everything was covered), and worst of all it hurt for 3 days even brushing my teeth. Radiant Dental changed my mind forever. I was hesitant at first because of my last experience at the other place. The staff and hygenist are nothing but extraordinary. Dr. Shattuck made sure I was comfortable and welcomed any questions before having a filling done. He was the least painful dentist I have EVER been to when it comes to fillings. Thanks everyone for such a welcome and professional visit that I no longer have anxiety and can fall asleep in the chair while having my teeth cleaned once again."- I.E. / Google / Feb 23, 2020

"I’ve never been dissatisfied with my dental care. But I’ve never had a dentist that I was this impressed with. I find Dr. Shattuck not only likable, I trust his judgment and feel his top priority is to provide the utmost personalized care to promote my dental health - no cookie cutter operation here. The office staff is extremely efficient and courteous. I’ve received cleanings from several hygienists, they are thorough and my teeth have never looked so good. Though I spend a great deal of time out of state, I will find an excuse to travel back to Texas to have them follow my progress with Invisalign treatment and general care."- J.K. / Google / Jan 18, 2020

Best Candidates for Smile Makeover
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth or if you need multiple restorative or cosmetic procedures on your front teeth. Dr. Shattuck will personalize your smile makeover plan to fulfill your goals and concerns. This might simply consist of teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Teeth that have turned brown due to a traumatic accident might require external bleaching, or a root canal with internal bleaching or a porcelain veneer to correct the discoloration. Other cosmetic procedures that might be part of your plan are bonding and contouring or minimal-prep veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth and mask minor openings between them. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be needed to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Radiant Dental Care, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your regular teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, Dr. Shattuck will have to make sure your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues, such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then these will have to be treated first to ensure that your smile makeover is long lasting and beautiful for life.
What To Expect with Smile Makeover
Each smile makeover treatment plan is customized to your individual desires and needs. Dr. Shattuck will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits your smile make over will require. He will work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the procedures in your makeover. Local anesthesia might be needed before a few of your treatments; however, other sedation choices may be suggested if you require help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Shattuck, along with his staff, will be accessible to answer any of your questions.
Smile Makeover Follow-Up
As soon as your smile makeover is finished, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with every-day maintenance, you will need to make appointments for dental examinations and cleanings at Radiant Dental Care so Dr. Shattuck can track your progress. With appropriate maintenance, the outcome of your smile makeover ought to last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your results. The easiest way to keep any smile makeover looking fresh and avoid the need for repairs is good home care with the regular recommended dental cleanings and professional maintenance.
