At AVM Dental Center, Dr. Alexander Milman knows patients don't want their dental work to show. He keeps his handiwork concealed by using tooth-colored materials, which replace metal fillings and other conspicuous dental treatments. It makes sense then, that he'd specialize in Invisalign, which straightens teeth while remaining almost invisible—something it has in common with most superhero dentists. Even his CEREC crowns replicate the look and function of the natural tooth and can be put in during a single visit. But Dr. Milman wants his patients to have an easy visit, too. His office's technologies help make appointments more comfortable with digital X-rays and special cameras that give him a tongue's-eye-view of each tooth for more accurate diagnoses.
While a lone tooth is never particularly attractive, a smile is more than the sum of its parts, as Dr. Ari Dubov and Dr. Lana Bunis well know. The two dentists specialize in cosmetic dentistry at their practice, Montgomery Greene Dental—where they bring smiles together by looking at the entire oral picture. Dr. Dubov is certified in Invisalign, a system of transparent aligners that straighten teeth subtly, without marks such as braces—which were recently adopted as the international symbol for "Under Construction". Dr. Bunis, meanwhile, specializes in implants, seamlessly replacing missing teeth. Beyond cosmetic dentistry, the pair also offer general dentistry services, orthodontics, and periodontics.
While studying at New York University’s College of Dentistry, Dr. Nhat Nguyen found more than a career. He found his future wife—and current partner at East Coast Family Dentistry—Dr. Maria Sese. Together, they tackle a full slate of dental services that range from checkups and x-rays to prevent future mouth-based maladies to implants and crowns that signal which molar is king of the teeth. Once smiles are healthy, the dental duo can spruce them up with cosmetic treatments including Zoom! Whitening treatments, which brighten chompers up to 12 shades in a single session.
At Jersey City Dental, Dr. Andrew S. Paek leads a staff of experienced hygienists and technicians in treating each patient that walks through the door on an individual level. The team helps alleviate any anxieties by listening to patients’ concerns, as well as taking the time to explain each procedure. In addition to exams, cleanings, and periodontal services, Dr. Andrew’s menu of cosmetic-dentistry techniques, such as veneers and whitening services, glamorize mouths without the hassle of pasting on celebrity photos.
Born and raised in New York, Dr. Lana Rozenberg comes from a family of dentists. This combination conspired to inspire a lifelong dedication to managing the oral health of her fellow New Yorkers. After a brief sojourn west for a stint at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, Dr. Rozenberg returned to New York for advanced work at NYU. Her practice’s blend of general dentistry with cutting edge dental techniques earned her the attention of the city’s population and the editors who write about them. In addition to bolstering her patients’ smiles, Dr. Rozenberg also makes time for feature coverage in outlets ranging from Vogue to CNN.
So, what are some of these revolutionary treatments? Gumoflage is one. The corrective procedure mends smiles that show too much gum by repositioning the upper lip so that it doesn’t creep up too high. A scalpel-free smile lift is another, building up teeth and creating a fuller, wider smile through the use of veneers. To enliven faded grins, she also uses the Zoom whitening process, which breaks down stains and discoloration in less than an hour. Dr. Rozenberg also branches out past the mouth, enhancing faces’ overall youthfulness with cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm.
Dr. Greene believes that education is essential for both patients and doctors. With each of her treatments, she strives to inform her patients of the causes of any issues, and she takes every effort to ensure that they understand why each procedure is necessary. While New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center keeps Dr. Greene on staff as a clinical instructor of up and coming dentists, she herself consistently pursues continuing education in dental fields outside of her expertise.
Though she is proficient in both general and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Greene's practice centers on cosmetic care and general dentistry. Her clients' teeth stay healthy and beautiful in large part due to her mastery of non-surgical treatments for periodontal disease and her license for ZOOM! whitening treatments. Additionally, discrete treatments such as Invisalign and tooth-colored fillings and bridges ensure that any procedure will not detract from her clients' smiles. Before being seen, patients wait in her spacious, sun-filled waiting room located in Midtown Manhattan, and every room, including treatment rooms, boast modern décor and flat screen televisions.
