Our Cosmetic Services

We are proud to provide a comprehensive array of cosmetic dental services designed to enhance every aspect of your smile. Whether you are looking to subtly improve your smile or undergo a complete transformation, we have the expertise and technology to achieve your goals:

  • Teeth whitening: Dramatically brighten your smile with our professional whitening treatments, which are far more effective than over-the-counter options.
  • Dental bonding: Quickly repair chips, cracks, or gaps with dental bonding. This process uses a tooth-colored resin that is shaped and polished to match your natural teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers: For those seeking a stunning change, porcelain veneers offer a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution, concealing a wide range of dental imperfections.
  • Gum contouring: Enhance the balance and symmetry of your smile with gum contouring, ideal for those who feel their smile is too “gummy” or uneven.

Our team is committed to using the latest techniques and technologies to ensure the best results, tailored to meet your individual needs and preferences.


Dental bonding is an efficient and cost-effective cosmetic treatment ideal for individuals looking to repair minor imperfections in their teeth, such as chips, cracks, or gaps. Here’s how we can enhance your smile with bonding.

  • Procedure: The bonding process involves applying a composite resin to the affected teeth. This resin is carefully matched to the color of your natural teeth for a seamless look.
  • Benefits: Bonding can be completed in just one visit, making it a convenient option for busy individuals. It requires minimal tooth enamel removal, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Results: After shaping and hardening the resin with a special light, your teeth will look natural and uniform. With proper care, bonding can last several years.

This straightforward procedure can significantly enhance the aesthetics of your smile, boosting your confidence with minimal disruption to your daily life. Whether it’s a small chip or a noticeable gap, bonding provides a simple solution with substantial results.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments, offering a transformative solution for various dental imperfections. These thin, custom-made shells are carefully crafted to cover the front surface of teeth, enhancing color, shape, size, and alignment.

  • Procedure: The process begins with a consultation where Dr. Greenwald or Dr. Albano discusses your aesthetic goals. A small amount of enamel is then removed from the front of your teeth to accommodate the veneers, ensuring a smooth fit. Impressions are taken and sent to a lab where your veneers are created.
  • Benefits: Veneers are highly resistant to stains and can mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth, giving you a long-lasting and radiant smile.
  • Results: Once applied, veneers dramatically improve your smile’s appearance, hiding issues like severe discoloration, chips, gaps, and irregular shapes.

Veneers are an excellent choice for patients looking to make a significant change with a durable and aesthetically pleasing result.

Tooth Contouring

Tooth contouring, also known as tooth reshaping, is a quick and painless procedure that can alter the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. This cosmetic service is perfect for those who have minor imperfections and are seeking a more harmonious smile.

  • Procedure: The process involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to change the shape or length of the teeth. Our doctor carefully sculpts the tooth to an ideal shape that fits more harmoniously within the mouth.
  • Benefits: Tooth contouring can correct slight misalignments, smooth out chips, or adjust overly pointy or irregularly shaped teeth. It is less invasive and more cost-effective than many other cosmetic procedures.
  • Results: The adjustments, though often subtle, make a noticeable difference in the overall appearance of your smile. This procedure is usually completed in a single visit, offering a quick path to a more attractive smile.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a cosmetic and therapeutic procedure that can make a short tooth appear longer or correct a “gummy” smile by reshaping excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of a tooth’s surface.

  • Procedure: This treatment is often performed under local anesthesia. It involves adjusting the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth structure.
  • Benefits: Crown lengthening can enhance the aesthetics of your smile by balancing the proportions of your gums to your teeth. It is also used to prepare a tooth for further procedures, such as crowns or bridges.
  • Results: Post-procedure, patients will notice a more aesthetically pleasing smile with better tooth visibility and proportions. The results are permanent, enhancing both the function and appearance of your teeth.

These three services, offered by Albano & Greenwald Family Dentistry, demonstrate our commitment to providing a range of solutions tailored to meet the cosmetic needs and desires of our patients. Whether it’s making minor adjustments or undergoing significant transformations, our goal is to help each patient achieve their ideal smile.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover involves a comprehensive approach to improving your dental aesthetics. This tailored treatment plan may include a combination of several cosmetic procedures based on your unique needs and goals.

  • Procedure: The journey begins with a detailed consultation where your smile goals are discussed and a customized plan is developed. Depending on the complexity, the makeover may include procedures like veneers, whitening, contouring, and more, all chosen to suit your specific dental requirements.
  • Benefits: The comprehensive nature of a smile makeover addresses multiple aesthetic issues simultaneously, offering a complete transformation that enhances both the appearance and function of your teeth.
  • Results: With a smile makeover, patients leave with a renewed sense of confidence and a smile they are proud to show off. The transformative results are designed to be long-lasting, improving not only the look but also the overall health of your smile.

Maintenance Tips After Cosmetic Procedures

Maintaining the results of your cosmetic dental treatments is crucial for lasting beauty and health. We provide patients with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcomes.

  • Routine care: Maintain regular dental check-ups and cleanings every six months to keep your teeth healthy and any restorations in good condition.
  • Home hygiene: Follow a daily oral hygiene routine that includes brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day.
  • Avoid certain habits: Steer clear of habits that can damage cosmetic work, like biting nails, chewing on hard objects, or using your teeth to open packaging.
  • Immediate care: If you notice any issues with your cosmetic enhancements, contact our office immediately. Early intervention can prevent more serious problems and extend the life of your treatments.
