About the photographs you will see on this Web site
The before and after photographs on this Web site are of patients who were treated by Dr. Berman.

The photographs are not retouched. The improvements you see in the photographs are exactly the improvements that were actually achieved with cosmetic dental techniques. In many of the photographs you will notice that not all of the cosmetic problems were treated. This was because of patient preference. Many times patients have a single complaint about their appearance. Dr. Berman feels strongly that treatment of cosmetic problems is patient dictated. It is the Dr.'s responsibility to provide the knowledge of the materials and techniques and to inform the patient of the pros and cons of each technique, but not to decide what areas are addressed. Dr. Berman believes that it is his responsibility to inform the patient about the functional and health issues of their mouth. He works to achieve an outcome that results in naturally beautiful teeth, blending imperceptibly with their surrounding environment. No matter what the procedure, Dr. Berman works to achieve a result that naturally relates to its environment, i.e.. a modern piece of furniture would look out of synch in an ornate 17th century cathedral. Each patient has unique tooth morphology and markings. Dr. Berman recreates these attributes in his restorative work, If a patient wishes to change some of the natural attributes of their teeth, Dr. Berman will work to help create those changes as long as they do not compromise function or health.
