Dr. Steven Crognale, Dr. Patricia Collins and Dr. Melissa Crognale

Crognale, Collins & Crognale Dentistry got its start on April 1st, 1981. Steven Crognale and Patricia Collins Crognale started seeing patients that first day and have served the Lancaster community ever since. Their daughter Melissa was born in September of that year and grew up in the practice. Many of our long time patients remember her as a child playing in the waiting room. She decided to follow in her parents path and joined our practice in 2008.

All three of our doctors serve the community by volunteering time and services to those in need. Additionally, Dr Crognale is a member of the American Dental Association, and Dr Collins is a member of the American Association of Women Dentists.

“We love it there, and that's hard to say when one goes to the dentist, so happy my kids are comfortable there also, so updated and nice receiptionist, so welcoming as soon as you enter, I highly recommend!!!!” - Madeline M.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Veneers, Bonding & Whitening


Veneers are a thin layer of restorative material that are placed over the existing tooth to help improve the appearance of teeth or to prevent any further decay or damage.  Our doctors now primarily use ceramic, or porcelain, veneers.  Advancements in dental technology has made porcelain veneers more fracture resistent.  They also wear better and look better, making you happier overall. 

Porcelain veneers are both strong and long lasting, and they also have a translucency that helps reflect light and create an incredibly natural looking smile.  Please refer to our smile gallery to see some of the images of patients we have treated using porcelain veneers, and their happy smiles!


If you have decayed, chipped or cracked teeth, miscolored teeth, spaces between teeth or teeth that aren't shaped exactly how you'd like, bonding can help.  Bonding basically consists of using a tooth-colored resin material and "bonding" it to your natural teeth to improve imperfections. 

Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive restorative treatments, and can be done in the office during one visit.  (Veneers and crowns are manufactured in a laboratory to custom-fit your tooth or teeth).  Click here to view some images of patients we have treated with bonding procedures. 


Drs. Crognale, Crognale and Collins can help get your pearly whites truly pearly white.  Natural wear and tear, coffee habits and other stains can affect the quality of your smile and your self-confidence. 

Although we do treat some cases with in-office power bleaching treatments, we typically use a product called Opalesence, that allows us to create custom-fit whitening trays for you so that you may take your whitening treatments home and do them in the privacy of your own home.  Watching the newest episode of 'How I Met Your Mother'?  Might as well get a whitening treatment in, as well!
