Customized Comprehensive Dentistry

No two smiles are alike, and that is how we approach patient care. 

Not only do dental needs vary from one person to the next, but your needs also change with your health. Aging, pregnancy, illness, and stress can all impact your teeth and gums. 

When you visit us, we will provide a treatment plan both to remedy your current dental needs as assessed by Dr. Phillips and to address your long-term dental care.

Our comprehensive dental services include the following:

  • Preventive services, such as cleanings and exams
  • Dental implants
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bridges and crowns
  • Bruxism and TMJ treatment
  • Periodontal (gum) disease treatment

We're also here to treat your dental emergencies, whether you've experienced tooth trauma, a tooth infection, or lost a filling. We provide prompt and gentle care for all Manhattan patients' emergency dental needs so they can maintain the appearance and health of their smiles. 

Your Midtown, NYC Cosmetic Dentist

Many patients want to improve their smiles' appearance for improved self-esteem and a competitive edge. Dr. Philips designs natural-looking dentistry using durable materials for beautiful smiles that last.

She offers everything from teeth whitening to full smile makeovers right here in our Midtown NYC dental office, including: 

  • Invisible braces
  • Laser teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Porcelain crowns

To ensure the highest quality, we use a local boutique dental laboratory that crafts tooth restorations that mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth. 

Dr. Philips has the eye of a true artist and extensive experience with developing new, celebrity-caliber smiles, and she would love to help you create the smile of your dreams.

Technology with a Personal Touch

Modern technology makes dentistry more accurate, efficient, and successful. While laser teeth whitening, rotary endodontics, and laser dentistry make your treatment easier, it's the relationship you and Dr. Philips develop that will help you achieve your lifelong goals for your oral health and smile.

Our knowledgeable staff are easily accessible and always eager to answer questions. We consider your dental care a team effort, and with your cooperation and input, we can achieve your smile goals together.
