Philosophy

Many of the patients coming to see Drs. Ryan F. Ziegler and Gonzolo J. Barrantes are in search of complete smile makeovers in a short timespan. “Every reconstructive and cosmetic procedure is performed in one office and we initiate treatment on the first visit when possible,” says Dr. Ziegler. For Dr. Ziegler, Dr. Barrantes and their team at Miami Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, the proof of just how skilled they are is in their ability to totally transform a smile in just a single visit. “We give our patients our honest assurance that we will do whatever it takes to deliver the best result possible,” adds Dr. Barrantes, “We’re very happy to say that we are consistently able to fulfill virtually every expectation, not only in aesthetics, but also in the level of comfort and functionality we provide our patients.”

About My Practice:

How do you define a successful result?

When the patient’s eyes light up after seeing their new smile, I know our cosmetic team has done a great job.

What can I expect from a smile makeover consultation?

Our consultations are very productive, as they set the stage for what your new smile will look like. We sit down with every new patient and listen, letting them explain their goals. Most want beautiful, healthy smiles. From there, we get right to work. We perform a thorough exam, and many patients begin their individualized treatment during the very first visit.

What sets your practice apart?

Our patient-centered approach. We have a team of highly skilled, experienced dentists in one location that perform all aspects of cosmetic and implant dentistry and all other dental procedures as well. We also offer convenient hours to patients with early morning and also evening hours until 9 p.m., four nights week. In addition, our practice is structured so that, often, we can start patients on their desired treatment the same day as their consultation. Sometimes patients come in, get the process started and walk out with a beautiful and dramatic change in the very same day.

What was your most memorable smile makeover experience?

Recently, a Miami attorney came to my office wanting to improve his smile. Although he knew he needed to straighten his crooked teeth, close the spaces and fix the chips, he was only considering whitening his stained teeth because he was afraid of shots and drilling. He also had a busy schedule and limited time. I told him about Lumineers, a unique porcelain veneer that could correct his concerns in two weeks, without injections or drilling. He asked to begin immediately. Two weeks later, when we permanently bonded his Lumineers®, with a smile from ear to ear, he said, “I never dreamed this was possible!” When he saw his new smile for the first time, his expression, like many patients’, was priceless and spoke volumes.

How do you put patients at ease?

I don’t rush them to the exam room. I meet all my new patients in my private office first to give them an overview of the practice and learn about them and their goals. By the time we go to the treatment room, they are so much more relaxed because they already had a lot of their questions answered in an informal, comfortable environment.

About Me:

What's the one thing you're never without?

My sense of humor.

What are some of your favorite hobbies?

I enjoy tennis, golf and snow skiing.

What framed photos do you have on your desk?

My devoted wife, four children and three grandchildren. 

What alternative occupation would you choose?

I am fortunate to be able to do exactly what I am doing.

Dental Cosmetic Creations

Many of the patients entering Dr. Ziegler’s office request complete smile makeovers. “When I look at a person, I can immediately visualize what his or her mouth will look like after treatment. I guess it’s because I have been doing this for more than three decades. And, I’d have to say, I’m a perfectionist—I am more difficult to please than my patients.” With a desire to create aesthetic smiles, Dr. Ziegler proves extremely meticulous, transforming smiles in just a single visit. “When you look at my patients’ before-and-after photos, it’s as if they had facial rejuvenation—they appear years younger. Many of them say, ‘Why did I wait so long?’”
