Our experienced cosmetic dentists perform all major aesthetic dentistry procedures using the latest technology.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Madison Dentistry performs all major cosmetic dentistry procedures, including Invisalign®, crowns and porcelain veneers at their manhattan office.

Dental Implants

A missing tooth affects more than one’s appearance; chewing, speaking, and brushing can become more difficult. Dental implants replace the damaged tooth with a natural-looking tooth.


A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Our dentists have a great deal of experience fabricating natural-looking full and partial dentures.


Invisalign is a great way to correct crowding, spacing, overbites and cross bites with clear braces. Our dentists specialize in using this modern and subtle method of straightening teeth.

Laser Dentistry

Our dentists use the most advanced laser technology. Patients seeking quick, powerful and accurate treatments are finding that laser dentistry meets and even exceeds their expectations.

Oral Surgery

Our practitioners are uniquely trained and experienced in oral surgery. We treat many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are effective solutions to gapped, crooked, chipped, cracked, discolored, or uneven teeth. They are perfect for patients who aren’t satisfied with the appearance of their teeth and smile.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is performed when a tooth decays to the point that the pulp becomes infected. Our dentists use this procedure to clear the infection and save the natural tooth.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry helps patients in the New York City area feel at ease during complex and invasive dental procedures, such as root canal therapy and tooth extraction.

Teeth Whitening

Our dentists specialize in removing stains and brightening tooth enamel with professional, in-office teeth whitening. Our treatments will give you a brighter and more confident smile.
