THE DEER VALLEY PROFESSIONAL BUILDING has a new dentist in town. Dr. Nathan Simarro has joined his twin brother Ryan in the practice of Miller and Simarro. Ryan is older than Nathan by a mere six minutes. Nonetheless, he is the oldest of the Dr. Simarro twins. I guess their practice will now be called Miller and the Simarro Brothers!
A Brief History Of The Simarro Brothers
Dr. Miller was originally an associate of Dr. Jim Green who built the Deer Valley Dental Professional Building at 5201 Deer Valley Road, in Antioch. Dr. Ryan Simarro joined the practice of Dr. Mark Miller in 2013. Dr. Nathan Simarro took one year off before dental school to study Spanish language and culture at Alcala de Heneares in Madrid, Spain. After dental school, he practiced at a nonprofit, Las Clinicas del Camino Real in Ventura, California. This week he was reunited with his twin in their practice in Antioch, California.
The Simarro dental twins are graduates of Deer Valley High School located right next door to their dental practice. Now, many of their high school teachers are their patients!
The Simarro Brothers Love To Give Back
Giving back to the community which they came from is very important to Drs. Ryan and Nathan Simarro. Their family has been rooted in Antioch and Brentwood for over 60 years. They are happy to see new patients many of whom are neighbors, classmates, family, and friends.
Drs. Ryan and Nathan bring difference strengths to their joint practice based on their varied experiences and educational background. Ryan is very cosmetically focused and one of the only providers of Lumineers; and in 2016 was the #1 Lumineer provider in the the San Francisco Bay Area. Nathan enjoys working with children and has seen young patients as early as one month old.
Together, Drs. Simarro are also providing All on Four dentistry offering dental implants and full mouth reconstruction to dental patients with extensive dental needs.

AN EDGE TO EDGE BITE WITH zero overjet and zero overbite will lead to excessive tooth wear. Left untreated for many years, this continual process of front teeth meeting and grinding unnaturally will lead to excessive tooth abrasion or early wearing down of your teeth. This will produce short teeth and may even lead to tooth sensitivity.
Orthodontic Treatment Can Create An Ideal Bite
Orthodontic treatment will correct this problem by creating ideal tooth horizontal overlap "overjet" and ideal tooth vertical overlap "overbite." Once this is done, your worn teeth can be cosmetically restored to their original length. This smile makeover will give you the youthful teeth and look which you once had.
Temporary Restorations Help Prep For Final Treatment
After orthodontic treatment, temporary restorations will be made for you to adjust to before you receive your final crowns and permanent tooth build up.
Your orthodontist will need to move the teeth that were worn to ideal tooth and gum position. Your general dentist will then be able to build up these teeth to ideal height and length making them look good as new.
Your orthodontist and general dentist may also recommend a night guard to prevent tooth wear from nocturnal bruxism. Bruxism is the clenching and grinding of teeth throughout the sleep cycle that almost every person occasionally experiences. This will keep you from experiencing further tooth wear in the future.
If You Have Any Questions, Let Us Know!
If you have questions about worn or short teeth, call us at Gorczyca Orthodontics in Antioch, California (925) 757-9000. Dr. Gorczyca works closely with the many fine dentists of East Contra Costa County and beyond to restore teeth to their ideal position and give you a beautiful smile.
Eliminate your edge to edge bite today with orthodontic treatment and a smile makeover. Get back your dental health and your beautiful smile.

A SPACE BETWEEN front teeth is very common. It called a diastema. Diastemas are often caused by thick tissue between the front teeth. This skin keeps your teeth apart and is called a maxillary frenum. Thick frenums are often hereditary and can be common in families.
How Do You Correct A Diastema?
A diastema is easy to close with orthodontic treatment. Short-term treatment may be braces, Invisalign, aligners, or removal appliances. Additional therapies may be required for ideal cosmetic results after closing a diastema. These may include veneers, lumineers, composites, or crowns. Periodontal therapy for removal of tissue, a frenectomy or gingivectomy, is often needed to help the space stay closed permanently after closing a diastema.
We Ensure The Gap Stays Closed
Your orthodontist may place a wire behind your front teeth to insure that your diastema stays closed. This bonded lingual wire is a permanent retainer. Care must be given not to bite hard foods with your permanent retainer to prevent it from breaking.
If you have questions about tooth gap closure call us at Gorczyca Orthodontics (925) 757-9000 for a complimentary consultation. Find us at www.clubbraces.com. To find an orthodontist in your area visit the American Associaton of Orthodontists at www.mylifemysmile.org.
Don't let a tooth gap keep you from smiling. Gap problem, no problem! Here's to your beautiful smile.
