Everyone admires a beautiful smile — whether it’s on a Hollywood celebrity or a friend’s social media feed. And if you’ve always dreamed of flashing a perfect smile of your own, Narjes Abtahi, DDS, and our team at Your Community Smile in Lansdowne, Virginia, are here to help.
We specialize in smile makeovers to help you achieve that coveted “Hollywood” smile — and these days, there are lots of ways to get there. Here’s what you need to know about a few of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments and how they could be your ticket to the smile you’ve always wanted.
Straight teeth are a key component of a Hollywood smile, but most people aren’t gifted with naturally straight teeth. Invisalign is a popular option for teens and adults of all ages who want straighter smiles.
One of the best benefits of this alternative to traditional braces is that it’s virtually invisible. Dr. Abtahi provides you with a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit your mouth and gradually shift your teeth into place over time.
While you’re wearing them, your Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable. The aligners are also removable, which means you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss.
An estimated 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. And if you’re one of them, you know that gap can compromise the look of your smile. Fortunately, dental implants are a great option to fill in the gaps.
A dental implant is a titanium post that Dr. Abtahi surgically inserts into your jawbone. The post acts as a replacement for the root of your missing tooth. Once the implant heals, she places a prosthetic crown on top to replace the visible part of your tooth.
Dental implants can help you achieve that Hollywood smile, but they’re also a durable option that helps protect your oral health. An implant is a long-lasting solution, and it functions just like a natural tooth.
If you’re bothered by dull or discolored teeth, professional-grade whitening is a popular option to brighten your teeth for that brilliant Hollywood smile. Dr. Abtahi and our team offer professional teeth whitening in the office, and it’s a fast, noninvasive treatment.
We apply a whitening solution that contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which helps to remove stains from your teeth. Then, we let the solution cure for a period of time. Depending on your goals for treatment, we may recommend one or two visits.
At-home whitening kits are also available, and they can be a convenient option to whiten your smile on your own schedule. These kits typically involve wearing a tray with whitening gel over your teeth for a specific amount of time each day. Treatment can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
Veneers are a growing trend in cosmetic dentistry, and it’s easy to see why. These thin, custom-made shells fit over the fronts of your teeth. They can be designed in any shape or shade — and they can dramatically transform the look of your smile in just a few appointments.
Most veneers are made from porcelain or composite resin. You can get just one veneer or a whole set, and Dr. Abtahi may recommend them to improve the appearance of discolored, misshapen, or chipped teeth.
One of the main benefits of veneers is that they’re a quick and long-lasting solution to improve the look of your smile. Dr. Abtahi’s attention to detail provides a natural-looking result.
Your smile is unique and Dr. Abtahi and our team are here to help you find the right treatments to achieve your goals. We offer comprehensive smile evaluations, and we work with you to develop a treatment plan to give you the smile you’re after.
We design individual treatment plans that cater to your particular needs and oral health goals. Schedule your first appointment online and schedule for a “Hollywood Smile consultation” or call our office at 703-565-2667 today.
