Most people could use a little touch-up or improvement to their smile, whether that entails fixing general wear-and-tear or covering specific issues such as stains/discolorations, chips, cracks, and other cosmetic damage. Whatever the case, porcelain veneers are an effective and accessible way to improve or even transform your entire smile in just a few short visits to the dentist. Read on to learn how Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael Mortazie use this treatment in their Washington, D.C. office to give their patients dazzling smiles!

Invest in a New and Improved Smile with Porcelain Veneers

The state of your smile can be as important as your clothes when it comes to making first (and lasting) impressions in both your personal life and professional life. Studies have found that not only does a damaged smile lead to self-esteem problems, but it can also affect how you are perceived by everyone you meet and interact with. Fortunately, porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can improve the size, shape, and color of your smile.

How Porcelain Veneers Work

Veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain, and they are bonded onto the surface of cosmetically marred teeth in order to fix issues such as chips, cracks, moderate gaps/spacing issues, and discolorations.

To begin treatment, your dentist will take impressions of your smile, and send them to a veneer-making lab. After a construction period of one-to-two-weeks, the veneers are sent back to our Washington, D.C. office, where they will be perfectly fitted and colored to complement your smile. After the correct adjustments are made, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth, and your new smile will be complete!

Tooth loss affects over 178 million Americans, and is most often caused by tooth decay or gum disease. Most patients who struggle with Dental Implanttooth loss are eligible for dentures or bridges. Some patients don’t realize that they might also be possible candidates for dental implants or implant-supported dentures that will provide them with a much more stable smile. Learn more about dental implants when you visit a dentist at Revive Total Care Dentistry in Washington D.C.

Dental Implants: The Best Choice for Your Smile
Millions of adult and older Americans have chosen dentures to replace their missing teeth. These devices are relatively easy to create and fit, and don’t require much of a wait, but they usually must be replaced or adjusted every few years. If you’re looking for a permanent dental restoration that will stay in place for ten years or possibly even longer, dental implants are the ideal solution.

How Dental Implants Help
A single implant device is made up of three parts—the actual implant, which is shaped like a screw, an abutment (connector), and the dental crown that is visible above the gumline. Because the implant is designed to combine with the bone in your jaw, it will keep that tissue healthy and useful. It not only replaces the outer part of the tooth, but also the root. Dental implants (and dentures that are anchored with implants) give you a superior level of confidence and security when you’re eating, talking, and smiling that you can’t get from a traditional denture device.

Dental Implantation: The Procedure and Timeline
First, your Washington D.C. dentist will invite you to the office to give you a general dental exam and confirm that dental implants are right for you. At the next appointment, the implant will be inserted into healthy bone tissue and sutured so that it can heal. After a few months, you’ll schedule another dental appointment to have the implant fitted with an abutment and crown. The entire process takes some time, but it provides lasting results and a smile you can be proud of once again.

Would you like a perfectly aligned, sensational smile? Then, explore the possibilities with Invisalign clear aligners from Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry in Washington, D.C. Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael Mortzie offer this inventive orthodontic system to patients who want all the health and aesthetic benefits of straight teeth but none of the nuisances of conventional braces.

What is Invisalign?

An innovative way to conquer mild to moderate alignment issues, Invisalign clear aligners from your Washington D.C., dentist are tightly-fitting acrylic appliances customized to shift teeth into pre-determined positions. Typically, teen and adult patients wear 18 to 30 pairs of these clear, thin and removable aligners, enjoying short treatment times of one year (on average).

FDA-approved in the late nineties, Invisalign aligners are computer-designed and crafted. Dr. Yazdani and Dr. Mortzie qualify patients with careful oral examination and special three-dimensional scans. Once treatment begins, patients use each aligner pair for about a month and then advance to the next pair in the prescribed sequence.

Will it work?

CNN reports that to date, six million people have had their smiles corrected with the Invisalign system. That's great testimony to these thin aligners which are comfortable, smooth, and barely noticeable.

Invisalign successfully treats a wide range of orthodontic problems, including:

  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Openbite
  • Tooth tipping and rotation
  • Crowding
  • Gaps

When you finish your treatment sequence, you'll wear a retainer to preserve your new alignment.

Invislalign really is practically perfect

How can that be? Frankly, Invisalign avoids the pain and embarrassment of metal, ceramic, or lingual braces because:

  • The aligners are super-thin and stain-resistant
  • The aligners are removable (for up to two hours a day) for brushing, flossing, eating, and any special occasion
  • Patients endure no irritating wires or brackets or arduous in-office adjustments
  • There are no dietary restrictions or complex hygiene routines

In addition, specialized ClinCheck technology allows you to see your finished smile before your Invisalign care plan even begins. So, you understand your treatment outcomes fully ahead of time. Amazing!

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional in-office teeth whitening in Washington, D.C., is one of the quickest and easiest ways to rejuvenate your smile.

 

Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening

It is possible to try whitening the teeth with over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes or strips. However, there are significant advantages to choosing professional teeth whitening, most notably that the desired results can be achieved quicker and last longer. One treatment at Revive Total Care Dentistry can whiten the teeth by up to eight shades with the results lasting for up to two years!

Another advantage of professional teeth whitening treatments is that the bleaching agent used to whiten the teeth and eliminate stains is of the highest quality and strength, which is why results can be achieved so quickly and last so much longer. Finally, since the whitening solution is applied by experienced dental professionals who take measures to protect the gums and other sensitive areas during treatment, professional in-office teeth whitening treatments are both safe and effective.

There are many benefits associated with dental veneers, which can completely transform your smile. Dental veneers can be used to conceal a variety of cosmetic concerns on teeth, such as stains or chips. A dental veneer looks like part of the natural tooth so no one will be able to tell you even have dental veneers. At Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry, Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael Mortazie arePorcelain Veneers your dentists for dental veneers in Washington, D.C.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain covers placed on the fronts of problem teeth to give those teeth a flawless new appearance. Dental veneers can be used to improve the size, shape, and color of teeth that are less than perfect. The porcelain material used to create dental veneers closely resembles tooth enamel, which creates a completely natural look once the veneers are placed on the teeth. To set veneers in place, a small portion of enamel is first removed from each tooth needing a veneer. A dental adhesive is then used to apply the veneers to the teeth.

How Dental Veneers Help Your Smile

Dental veneers can help your smile by concealing or correcting a variety of cosmetic concerns. By addressing such cosmetic issues, dental veneers can improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence. Dental veneers can be used to improve teeth with the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Stains and discolorations
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are oddly shaped
  • Rough or uneven tooth surfaces

Each individual dental veneer is custom created to perfectly fit over the specific tooth needing improvement. The size, shape, and color of dental veneers can all be customized for a perfect fit and the most natural appearance possible. Once in place, dental veneers blend in with the natural teeth. Your dentist for veneers in Washington, D.C., can help you decide if dental veneers are the right cosmetic option for you.

The benefits of dental veneers are numerous and they can transform your smile into one you have always wanted. For dental veneers in Washington, D.C., schedule an appointment with Dr. Yazdani or Dr. Mortazie by calling Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry at (202) 363-3399.
