Tommy Lasorda Joins the Precious Smiles Family

I had a real problem today.  I was supposed to go to a big dinner with a lot of baseball executives in Miami, and of course I had a dental emergency.  I looked all around Miami for a good dentist, but it was 3:30 and they had all left for the day.

Out of nowhere I get a call from Dr. Mereos.  He told me that although he was out for the day that his lovely and wonderful assistant, Norma, would be waiting for me in their office.

When I got there Norma was wonderful.  She sat me down, took a look at the problem, and assured me that I had nothing to worry about and that she would take care of me.

She did an outstanding job!

She fixed me up and got me off to my dinner.

I will be forever grateful to Norma and Dr. Mereos, and they know that when the Dodgers come to Miami to play the Marlins they will be there to watch the games.

Thank you Norma.  Thank you Dr. Mereos.

Cosmetic Dentistry

A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry's many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. You now have choices that can help you smile with confidence.
Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. Talk to your dentist about the options most suitable for you, what your expectations are and the dental fees involved. Some options are: 

  • Tooth whitening ( bleaching) brightens teeth that are discolored or stained. Bleaching may be done completely in the dental office or the dentist may dispense a system for you to use at home.
  • Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface.
  • Enamel shaping involves modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or contouring enamel. The process, which often is combined with bonding, usually is quick and comfortable and the results can be seen immediately.
  • Veneers are thin custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of teeth. Made of tooth-colored materials, veneers are used to treat spaces between teeth and teeth that are chipped or worn, permanently stained, poorly shaped or slightly crooked.
  • Braces are not just for kids. Orthodontics may be needed if teeth are crooked, crowded or do not meet properly. If your dentist thinks you should see a specialist for treatment, he or she will refer you to an orthodontist.

Dr. Mereos Top Miami Beach Cosmetic Dentist Introduces Soft Tissue Laser to Enhance Smile Makeovers

Great smile makeovers!
Precious Smiles Cosmetic Dentistry Center has introduced the use of a high-tech “soft-tissue” laser to boost the results of smile makeovers. Coupled with conventional cosmetic treatments like veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants the laser treatments are giving patients something to smile about.
Dr. Isidoros Mereos, one of Miami’s top cosmetic dentists provides patients with a variety of treatment options to achieve remarkable results. Dr. Mereos and his team use the latest dental technology including laser contouring, dental implants, veneers or lumineers, Invisalign (invisible braces), and in-office fast teeth whitening to restore his patient’s smiles. Laser soft tissue contouring often enhances the outcome of other dental cosmetic procedures by providing a way to contour the gums and ultimately providing a more balanced smile. Patients can visit the Precious Smiles Cosmetic Center website ( to see all the treatment options available to them. They can also call Dr. Mereos’s friendly staff to schedule a consult.
“It is amazing to see the change that laser contouring, porcelain veneers, dental implants, or even a one-hour teeth whitening can have on a patient’s life. After the treatment, they are more confident and happy to smile” said Dr. Mereos. The process for most cosmetic dental procedures is simple, fast, and painless. Great results can be achieved in just a few visits.
Dental implants are an excellent way of replacing missing teeth. With new dental implant technologies available today, even patients that were not candidates for dental implants before are now able to enjoy the benefits of implants. “Dental implants give patients the confidence that comes from not having to worry about loose dentures or removables” says Dr. Mereos.
“Our team combines the best treatments available in dentistry today to achieve best smile makeovers for our patients” says Francis, office manager at Precious Smiles Cosmetic Center.  The entire Precious Smiles team is dedicated to their patients and they work closely with patients to ensure they understand all the treatment options available to them.
