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

How dental implants from your dentists in Washington, D.C. can complete your smile
Do you have gaps in your smile that make you self-conscious? If you are living with a smile that is incomplete due to missing teeth, it’s time to think about the best way to complete your smile, dental implants! Drs. Shila Yazdani and Michael M. Mortazie at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry want to share how dental implants can close the gaps in your smile. They have two convenient offices in Washington, D.C. and serve residents of the Washington, D.C. and Chevy Chase area.
There are many reasons why you might be missing teeth. Tooth decay, dental trauma, an accident or injury, periodontal disease, or genetics are just a few. Whatever the reason is for your missing teeth, dental implants can help by replacing a single missing tooth, or several missing teeth. Dental implants can also provide strong support for a denture, called an overdenture.
When you choose dental implants, you will enjoy benefits and advantages that can’t be equaled by other tooth replacement methods like partials, dentures, or bridges. Consider that dental implants are:
- Naturally beautiful; the dental implant crown is made of materials that reflect light, just like natural tooth enamel.
- Completely stable; dental implants are firmly embedded in bone, so they will never move.
- Easy care; you brush and floss the implants right along with your natural teeth.
They also help conserve the bone in your jaw, which means a firm, younger-looking jawline for you. Dental implants help to restore facial contours, giving you a younger-looking face.
If you want to close the gaps in your smile, it’s time to choose dental implants, the closest thing to your natural teeth. Restore the strength and beauty of your smile with dental implants by calling Dr. Shila Yazdani and Dr. Michael M. Mortazie at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry, serving residents of the Washington, D.C. and Chevy Chase area. Call today!
Nothing takes away from the beauty of your smile quite like a dental stain. When your entire smile is stained, it’s enough to make you avoid close encounters and cover your teeth in photos. Luckily, easy solutions are available—a dentist at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry in Washington D.C. can remove those stains rather quickly in just one professional teeth whitening appointment.
Dental Stains Aren’t Permanent
Even if you can’t brush away a dental stain at home, you should know that most stains are not permanently embedded into the enamel. Many discolorations can be lightened with dental bleaching solution. Dental stains are caused by the colors from foods and drinks settling into the ridges of the enamel. If you think about how often you drink a cup of coffee, or chew fruits like blueberries or raspberries, you’ll understand why your teeth change colors over time.
Teeth Whitening for Stains
Your Washington D.C. dentist will not only get rid of the dental stains, but also brighten your entire smile by several shades during a teeth whitening treatment. A special gel is painted on the teeth, then a light activates the whitening agent. It is a relaxing and comfortable appointment that lasts about an hour. If you have gum sensitivities, in-office whitening is your best option for dental stain removal.
Maintaining a Stain-Free Smile
When you look in the mirror at your teeth after a whitening treatment, you’ll finally see a bright white smile that you can be proud of. Keep your smile stain-free by avoiding drinking and eating the same foods that caused the stains to appear. If you must have these foods, take precautions to avoid chewing (or sipping beverages) with your front teeth. Also, keep a brush handy for quick maintenance throughout the day.
Whiter, Brighter, Better
Have a dentist at Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry in Washington D.C. take a look at your dental stains. A bleaching treatment can make a major difference in the quality of your smile for years. Call (202) 363-3399 or (202) 363-2155 today for an appointment with Dr. Shila Yazdani or Dr. Michael Mortazie.
Orthodontic treatment is not just for teenagers anymore—adults can reap major benefits from having their teeth re-positioned for cosmetic and functional reasons. At Revive Neuromuscular Aesthetic Dentistry in Washington D.C., you can have your smile straightened out in about six months to a year with a specialized treatment called Invisalign.
What Is Invisalign?
When preteens and teenagers need orthodontic treatment, the most common solution is metallic braces. They can correct a wide variety of spacing and your alignment issues. But when you reach a certain age, the idea of wearing metal brackets and wires on your teeth for an extended period of time just isn’t an option. Invisalign uses clear, lightweight plastic trays instead of braces. Each tray prescribed in the treatment period is different and aligns the teeth according to your dentist's plan.
How Does This Orthodontic Treatment Work?
When you visit your Washington D.C. dentist to start Invisalign, the first step is getting an accurate impression of your teeth as they are right now. Using this impression, your dentist can map out a plan to slowly but surely move each of your teeth so that they are evenly and attractively positioned. Your teeth will move to conform with the shape of the tray. Unlike braces, the process is free of the discomfort that comes with wearing a metal framework 24 hours per day.
More You Should Know About Invisalign
Here are a few other things you should know about Invisalign and why it may be the ideal orthodontic treatment for you:
- Some Invisalign treatment periods are as short as six months.
- You’ll be able to remove your tray to eat and brush your teeth. However, it is important that you wear your trays for at least 22 hours per day for the best results.
- Wearing these trays helps protect your teeth from bruxism (grinding and clenching).
- The last tray that your dentist prescribes will become your retainer tray and it will keep your teeth aligned.
