Why you may want to rethink your dental care this month…

May is a month of fresh flowers, the start of summer, and the opportunity for a LOT of photography.

With big events right around the corner this month, you might want to consider how your smile is going to be captured and immortalized. At Friendly Smiles Dental, we know that you want to look your best, so we’ve come up with a few different dental tips that will give you a way to be proud of your smile and show off your pearly whites!

1. Graduation Caps (Pun Intended)!

May means the end of an era for many students! From taking the personal step into college, kids moving on to high school, or grandkids accepting their diplomas from your alma mater, the cameras are no doubt going to be flashing.
If you’re lucky enough to have a loved one walking across the stage and moving their tassel to the left side of the cap, the photo memory of that moment is likely to end up on the family mantle for years to come! Be sure that the cap on your loved one’s head isn’t the only one you’re considering!
Veneers and Bonding are two services offered at Friendly Smiles Dental that can perfect the appearance of your teeth. Veneers are “caps,” placed on top of your teeth to give a natural, and beautiful look, while Bonding can repair any chips or cracks for quick fixes. These solutions will have you feeling confident whether you’re standing in front of the audience, or in the celebratory photos that follow!

2. Mother’s Day

When the kids run in to give you big hugs, cards, and flowers, and you see those braces across their tiny teeth, it might make you a bit envious! But Friendly Smiles is here to tell you that it’s never too late to invest in your smile.
Friendly Smiles Dental offers Invisalign services. Invisalign works by using custom, plastic trays, fitted to your teeth for discreet straightening. New trays are used every two weeks with little interference in your day-to-day routine. You can make an appointment now for a consultation to get you on your way to straight teeth by next Mother’s Day!


Whether you’re a blushing bride or a soon-to-be groom, your everyday choices on what you eat and drink might have caused your teeth to look stained or yellow…but you shouldn’t have to live with these choices on your special day! Before you walk down the aisle, Friendly Smiles asks: “Do you want the perfect smile?” – and we’re hoping the answer is, “I do.”
We’re sure you’ve picked out the perfect dress and expertly coordinated your floral arrangements…but what about your tooth arrangement?  Friendly Smiles Dental Care offers custom at home teeth whitening to transform your smile. You’ll truly be ‘beaming’ as you walk down the aisle after these treatments!

4. Memorial Day

Memorial Day means Summer. Summer means vacations for you, your friends, and your family! There is never a time like the summer for dental care. With a little extra downtime and thoughts of R and R drifting by, there’s truly no better time to book an appointment with Friendly Smiles Dental Care.
Take care of that cavity that’s been giving you trouble, before you try to slurp down a tasty frozen drink on the beach. Wash away your fears like the ocean over the sand by booking a preventative semi-annual exams or hygiene visit. Whatever your dental needs during these hot summer months, Friendly Smiles is dedicated to providing you with the best family dentistry in the Tampa Bay area!
