I had heard from a friend about this great dentist, Dr. John Shoemaker, so in September 2012 I decided it was time to visit with the dentist. I had a missing tooth, which affected my smile and my ability to chew. I am a grinder and know that once you are missing a tooth the others begin to shift and drift affecting your teeth negatively. I didn’t want to sacrifice my teeth on either side of the extraction for a bridge as they were healthy and in no need of dental work so a single implant was the best solution for me. I also had a mini smile makeover on 3 of my front teeth and I feel like my smile looks like it did when I was young. I am so pleased. I smile so much more and tell everyone about Dr. Shoemaker and how his dental expertise has improved my smile!
