Summer had a unique situation because her canine teeth were tuck (impacted). Treatment required the Damon system to create space and guide these teeth into ideal position. Summer achieved a bright, wide, gorgeous smile in 22 months.
Beauty, talent, poise and confidence … Summer Sheekey now has what it takes to make her dreams come true. Her modeling career is blossoming. She has already landed print ads for Five Below, commercials for Conair and will be featured on two book covers to be released this month. And Summer attributes her success to her incredible Kadar Smile.
As a young child, Summer always loved performing. A bit shy and insecure, she began attending acting summer camps to build her skills and confidence. By age 8, she had professional head shots taken for her portfolio, but would only smile without showing her teeth. She applied for many jobs, would get call backs, but never got the job. The interviewers would say, “We like her, but don’t like her teeth.” Thankfully, that would all change.
At age 10, Summer came to our office and began treatment to correct her crossbite, narrow arch and protrusive, misaligned teeth. The Damon System was a great fit for her, since it’s an excellent tool to widen the upper arch and create space for adult teeth. The result — a Hollywood Smile. Summer feels that “Dr. Kadar is the best” and describes the Kadar office as a “comfortable environment where each employee treats you like you’re special.”
Summer’s awkward stage is now a thing of the past. “Since I have had my braces off,” said Summer, “I’ve gotten more modeling jobs and I am so happy! It has boosted my confidence so much and now everyone compliments me on my smile. Now I can pursue my dream of being a model/actress.”
We are so proud of Summer and will be watching as her career explodes. Recently, she landed a modeling job for a major pharmaceutical company and will be showing off her Kadar Smile on billboards and in magazines across the nation! Look for her in this month’s edition of South Jersey Magazine as well! We congratulate Summer and are sure that someday we will see her in Hollywood or on the Big Screen!!
