Krieger Orthodontics is a different kind of orthodontist. Dr. Krieger spent 20 years becoming an accomplished general dentist before going back to school to pursue his dream of becoming an orthodontist. He views your case through the eyes of both an orthodontist and accomplished cosmetic dentist who restores smiles on a regular basis. In fact, one part of his practice is smile design. What is smile design? For 20 years, patients came to Dr. Krieger to change their smiles with veneers or crowns. As a result, Dr. Krieger attended hundreds of hours of courses specifically devoted to the esthetics of the smile and the role individual tooth shape and form play in producing a pleasing smile. Dr. Krieger believes that every patient deserves to have a smile designed for their individual case, taking into account their specific tooth shape and things like the movement of their lips and shape of their face. This individualized approach and the compilation of all of the aspects of dentistry that play a role is called "smile design" and you can experience it at Krieger Orthodontics.
