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!

Many factors can affect the appearance of our smile even when we do our best to take care of it. For instance, certain foods and Whiteningbeverages can leave stains on teeth, while the simple act of aging can make our smiles look dull or discolored. Luckily, professional teeth whitening makes it possible to easily rejuvenate your smile. At Revive Total Care Dentistry, Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael Mortazie are your dentists for professional teeth whitening in Washington, D.C.


Professional Teeth Whitening

At Revive Total Care Dentistry, professional teeth whitening treatments are applied in-office by experienced dental professionals. A professional strength, high-powered whitening solution containing either hydrogen peroxide or carbide peroxide is used to whiten and brighten teeth by up to eight shades in a single treatment session. Treatment sessions last about 60-90 minutes and the results are visible immediately after treatment. 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.

Are you missing teeth? Dental implants are a great option for replacing lost teeth. A dental implant is a metal post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael Mortazie at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry, in Washington, DC, offer dental implants to their patients.

1. You have missing teeth.

Tooth loss can ruin an otherwise perfect smile. Missing teeth also make people appear older than they are. Dental implants will fill in your smile's gaps and improve your appearance. Looking one's best is an advantage in today's world. A growing number of adults are getting dental implants to improve their appearance. 

2. You have eating problems.

Missing teeth can keep you from enjoying the foods you love. It's difficult to eat and chew properly when you have missing teeth. Dental implants will give you the ability to chew all of your favorite foods again. Dental implants will give you the ability to eat with comfort and confidence. 

3. You have good bone density.

If you have good bone density at the implant site, you may be a good candidate for implants. You need a sufficient amount of bone in order to adequately support dental implants. If your bone is too soft or is not thick enough, you may require a bone graft before you can have dental implants placed.

Dental implants will allow you to live the way you want to- smiling, talking, eating, and enjoying everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.

How porcelain veneers from your dentists in Washington D.C. can give you an outstanding smile


dental veneers

Does your smile need a little TLC? Perhaps you have a few chips, cracks, or other unsightly issues. Perhaps nature didn’t give you the smile you deserve. No matter what aesthetic issues you are dealing with, there is an answer to your smile problems; it’s dental veneers!

Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael M. Mortazie at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry want to share how veneers can help you show off your best possible smile. They proudly serve residents of Washington D.C. and the Chevy Chase area and they can help your smile too.

Veneers are created out of porcelain, a light-reflective material that looks just like natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, allowing your veneers to stay looking great for years. The veneers are cemented on to the front surfaces of your teeth, hiding minor and major aesthetic issues like these:

  • Excessive tooth wear from aging or bad habits
  • Chips, cracks, and fracture lines from an injury
  • Breaks in enamel caused by an accident
  • Blotches and uneven tooth color caused by medications
  • Stains and discolorations caused by lifestyle issues
  • Gaps in between your teeth from genetics
  • Overlapped teeth caused by crowding and insufficient space

There are many reasons why people choose veneers to help them show off their best smiles. Veneers:

  • Naturally enhance your smile because porcelain mimics the look of tooth enamel, creating a sparkling new smile
  • Provide long-lasting beauty by repelling stains and discolorations, even if you drink coffee or smoke
  • Are a conservative treatment because your dentist removes only minimal tooth structure, just enough to allow for veneer thickness

It is possible to show off your best smile more quickly and easily than ever before, thanks to porcelain veneers. Get started on your new smile by calling Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael M. Mortazie at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry, serving residents of Washington D.C. and the Chevy Chase area. Call today!
