As a graduate of Columbia University's School of Dental Medicine and the former director of dental implantology at Lutheran Medical Center, Dr. Gerald Cohen confidently tends to his patients' long-term oral health while also renovating smiles with the latest cosmetic treatments. Along with the expertise of its staff, the sophisticated practice fights off decay and beautifies precious enamel deposits with help from high-tech gadgets such as a 3-D cone beam scanner, which accurately analyzes mouthscapes with a significant reduction in radiation, and digital impressions that negate the need for messy tooth trays or tooth-fingerprint kits. Routine exams and cleanings guard against cavities and oral cancer, and Dr. Cohen's onsite dental lab speedily constructs personalized implants and veneers to ensure a perfect match for each patient's mouth. As a testament to Greenwich Cosmetic Dentistry's commitment to technology and patient comfort, staff provide each guest with an iPad to occupy them as they wait and offer sedation dentistry for nervous patients to allow them to sleep through their treatment and awaken on the first day of spring.
