Dr. Simony believes that beauty is subjective but harmony is measurable. And, harmony is an extremely important component of perceived beauty. Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with the appearance of teeth and the enhancement of a person's smile. In this field, the emphasis is on the art of dentistry, not just the science. On the surface, creating white teeth, or even whole new teeth in general, may not appear to be that complicated.

A dental implant is essentially a metallic root that replaces a natural tooth. Michael E. Simony, D.D.S. places an implant into a location in your jaw where it would be favorable to have a crown or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury or some other reason. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. It is actually considered more conservative for this reason.

Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are contact-lens-thin, feldspathic porcelain veneers that Dr. Simony applies directly to your existing teeth. Lumineers are great for permanently stained teeth, filling in gaps or correcting chipped teeth. One of the big advantages of Lumineers is that the procedure is not painful! On your first visit, Dr. Simony will make an impression of your teeth to be used for building the Lumineers. On your second visit, Dr. Simony bonds the Lumineers to your teeth without the reduction of existing tooth surface that would be required with traditional veneers.

Composite bonding is the use of resins or plastics, which are bonded to your existing tooth structure. Very little or none of the original tooth structure is removed in this process. The resin is bonded to your tooth, hardened, and then sculpted and polished to match the shape and color of the rest of your teeth. If you have issues with stained, chipped or cracked front teeth, or gaps between them, composite bonding might be your easiest and fastest way to a bright smile. This non-invasive procedure can be used to improve the color and overall appearance of your teeth.
To have a smile that is good for life, your child needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned. As a parent, you want the very best for your child’s health. Your child’s first exam and cleaning should be no later than three years of age. The American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first Orthodontic evaluation should be no later than seven years of age. By then, your child’s teeth have developed enough to where subtle problems can be spotted with jaw growth and emerging teeth. While orthodontic treatment most often begins between the ages of eight and 14 years of age, most orthodontic problems can be corrected if they are treated early. Dr. Simony will advise you when the ideal time is to begin by evaluating your child at the exam.
