Dr. Smigel - Cosmetic Dentist - New York

New York cosmetic dentist Irwin Smigel is the visionary who is called the “father of Aesthetic Dentistry” by his peers. He was at the forefront of cosmetic tooth bonding, laminate veneers and both in office and at home bleaching techniques. However, his greatest contribution is to his patients who travel from the four corners of the earth to New York to see him. Those who are lucky enough to have him work his magic are really his works of art. Dr. Smigel is truly a premier cosmetic dentist in New York and the world.

Dr. Smigel not only works on making the teeth look good but his primary focus is to enhance the face. He is a cosmetic dentist who works differently from any other dentist. Every laminate and veneer is shaped by him, fitted again and again, shaped and reshaped until he balances the symmetry of the face, enhances the cheekbones and changes lip structures if necessary. His attention to detail and rare patience are keys to his success in New York. He is truly the Leonardo da Vinci of dentistry. It is no wonder that the New York University school of dentistry has named its prestigious award for lifetime achievement in cosmetic dentistry the “Irwin Smigel Prize.”

It all started in 1979 when New York cosmetic dentist, Dr. Smigel's nationally best-selling book, Dental Health/Dental Beauty prompted an appearance on the syndicated hit TV show, “That's Incredible.” On this history-making appearance, Dr. Smigel performed the first nationally televised dental bonding cosmetic dentistry demonstration before the eyes of 50 million viewers. The single airing of Dr. Smigel's amazing talent as a cosmetic dentist in New York changed the face of dentistry forever as thousands of callers flooded the network's phone lines hoping to discover how they too could improve their smiles. Since then New York dentist Dr. Smigel has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Regis & Kathy Lee, NBC News, ABC News, Fox News and CBS News. His forthcoming book is called Saving Face - Simple Steps To Timeless Beauty.
