VANITY FAIR, APRIL 2009
Show Off Your Pearly Whites With Dr. Butensky
I was urged to go see a dentist by the name of Dr. Steven Butensky
, who was recommended to me by my friend Alina Cho, a CNN anchor. You may have heard of the good doctor through the mouths (no pun intended) of Tinsley Mortimer, Frédéric Fekkai, as Dr. Butensky
tends to the pearly whites of many of New York City’s social elites. I don’t typically cover dentists, but I thought I would go out on a limb with this one.
I never think of dentists as "fabulous," but you know what? Dr. Butensky
is fabulous—and he also happens to be very dashing! I put this handsome, rock-climbing, heli-skiing dentist to the test when I went to get my teeth bleached. He first gently covered my gums with a protectant, then used a bleaching agent by UltraDent that whitened my teeth in only 30 minutes. Dr. Butensky
was very gentle, careful, and attentive throughout the process, and his assistant sat by me the entire time to make sure all was going well. His impeccably clean office (with no dentist smell whatsoever) is complete with a flat-screen TV so you won’t get bored while you’re waiting for your teeth to get whitened.
If you are in search of a new dentist, Dr. Butensky
might be just your guy. Oh, and his office called the next day to make sure my teeth weren’t too tender from the procedure. How’s that for sensitivity?
