A beautiful smile can change how you feel about yourself, boost your confidence, and give you a whole new way to approach the world.

Our Top Procedures for Cosmetic Dentistry
We are proud to offer a wide range of dental cosmetic options, each addressing common concerns uniquely. Whether you are considering cosmetic dentistry because your teeth are damaged and misaligned, or you simply want to whiten an already lovely smile, we have the tools, experience, and artistic awareness to create the perfect smile for you.
We offer convenient, take-home whitening kits featuring customized whitening splints for a perfect fit. In just two weeks, your teeth are several shades whiter. If you need immediate results, in-office Zoom Whitening takes about an hour. You walk out of our office with brighter, whiter teeth the same day.
Veneers are thin, porcelain shells attached to the front side of your natural teeth to enhance their beauty and correct minor imperfections such as gaps, small chips, and discoloration. The veneers mimic the translucent look of natural teeth but improve the shade and texture of your teeth. Veneers last ten to thirty years and do not stain like natural teeth.
An alternative to veneers is dental bonding. A specially formulated resin material is applied to prepared teeth, then carefully sculpted into the shape desired. Bonding can correct discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth in just one trip to the dentist. Still, the resin material can be stained over time, just like natural teeth. Bonding is best for teeth that do not have to withstand a lot of bite force, such as the front teeth. For this reason, dental bonding is considered a more temporary way to improve your smile, lasting three to five years.
Although many people are unhappy with their crooked teeth, some hesitate to get braces. They believe braces are uncomfortable, conspicuous, and prevent the wearer from eating many of the foods they love. Invisalign are clear, plastic aligners that gently guide your teeth into their correct positions. They are virtually undetectable and do not have any wires or brackets to poke your mouth. We are certified, trained Invisalign providers, designing the straightening splints individually for a custom approach that speeds the straightening process and gives incredible results in less time than traditional metal braces.
Although not strictly cosmetic, dental implants are often used to provide a healthier alternative to damaged or missing teeth and a more attractive one. Implants replace the entire root and crown of a missing or extracted tooth. Because we craft each crown individually, you can be sure your implants provide a brighter, whiter smile that lasts a lifetime.
If you are unsure which cosmetic dentistry option is best for you, Dr. Greenbaum can explain each option in greater detail and help you determine which procedure fits your lifestyle and budget while giving you the results you seek.
