Philosophy

Prosthodontist Dr. Nargiz Schmidt specializes in reconstructive, aesthetic and implant dentistry. She believes that beauty and function go hand in hand.“It’s as important to me to focus on function as it is to craft beautiful smiles,” says Dr. Schmidt. Her conservative approach is represented in her favorite saying, “I respect the tooth enamel!” She travels all over the world as an award–winning lecturer on the topic of noninvasive dental aesthetics. Through teaching international dentists her aesthetic techniques, Dr. Schmidt aims to revolutionize the standard for minimally invasive aesthetic dentistry. Along with her drive and dedication, she is committed to providing her patients with personalized and gentle care.

About My Practice:

What does a consultation with you entail?

We discuss the patient’s concerns and expectations. My assistant takes photographs so I can provide a full facial analysis. I present the patient with several options to achieve their goals, all of which are discussed in detail. I make sure to thoroughly explain each proposed procedure and make sure the patient is fully educated on their choices. 

Why do you think patients hesitate to have dental work done?

One thing that prevents people from having aesthetic treatment is uncertainty about the final result. Today, we have a variety of tools available to digitally or clinically preview the proposed results before the actual procedure. 

About Me:

How do you define success?

The most important thing to me is that my patient is completely pleased with the results of their aesthetic procedure. I want my patients to catch their reflection in the mirror and be absolutely happy. 

How would your patients describe you?

I would hope they describe me as kind, caring and honest. I think it’s important to have an open dialogue, to give thorough information about what to expect and to comprehensively explain the details of the treatment. 

What do you love most about your job?

Through prosthodontics I focus on function, and I believe that beauty and function go hand in hand. I feel a sense of gratification when I’m able to aesthetically improve a smile and enhance the entire face. Noting improves one’s face and mood like a beautiful smile.

About Me

A New Smile With Lumineers

This 28-year-old patient was unhappy with her small, flat, yellowed teeth, but didn’t want her tooth structure removed. Dr. Schmidt placed 10 upper Lumineers in a shade slightly lighter than her own teeth to achieve a natural-looking, brighter, more even smile.

FAQ's

Q. Why did you choose to focus on Lumineers?

What our experts say:

I’ve always been concerned with the unnecessary removal of sensitive tooth structure in order to achieve a satisfactory aesthetic result. Thanks to Lumineers, I can achieve spectacular aesthetic results without administration of local anesthesia, and with minimal discomfort.
