Find out how dental veneers can create superior smiles.

Do you wish you felt more confident in your appearance, but discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, or other imperfections are keeping you from feeling your best? If so, you may be curious about how dental veneers could enhance your smile’s appearance and hide these flaws. Our Reston VA cosmetic dentists Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang pride themselves on creating beautiful veneers that help shape and form the smile you’ve always dreamed of having. Contact Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to learn more.

Fixing my smile

Porcelain veneers in Reston may be the ideal cosmetic option for anyone who has ever looked in the mirror and wished they didn’t see:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Severely stained or discolored teeth
  • An uneven smile
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth
  • Short, stubby teeth
  • Oddly-shaped teeth

If your discolorations haven’t responded to professional whitening, or the idea of wearing braces for a year (or possibly more) has you feeling like you’ll never have the smile you want, then it may be time to talk to our Reston VA dentists about veneers in Reston.

Getting veneers is simple, painless, and can be done in just two appointments. While some enamel will need to be filed down from the front of your teeth to make room for your veneers, tooth preparation is minimal and usually done without the need for local anesthesia.

Once teeth are prepped, we will take impressions of your mouth to send to a dental lab so they can fabricate your very own set of veneers made specifically for your teeth. Once they have been made, you’ll come in to have the veneers fitted and then bonded to your smile.

With the proper care, veneers can last anywhere from 10-15 years before needing replacement. You must be still visiting your dentist every six months for cleanings and checkups so they can continue to monitor the health of your new smile.

If you are interested in getting dental veneers from our Reston VA cosmetic dentistry team Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang, then it’s the perfect time to call Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at (703) 437-5555 to schedule a consultation.

Find out the unique advantages associated with getting dental implants here in Reston, VA.

You are missing one or more teeth and you’re wondering whether or not dental implants are the right option for you. Maybe our Reston, VA, dentists Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang have already talked to you about them or you’re still doing your online research. If you do decide to get dental implants, here are the top three unique benefits associated with this popular restoration,

Like the Real Thing

Who doesn’t want a false tooth that feels, looks and acts just like the real thing? A dental implant allows patients dealing with tooth loss to be able to regain a strong, natural smile again with a false tooth that is as close as you can come to having a natural tooth. This is because the implant itself replaces missing tooth roots, so it’s placed into the jawbone where it fuses together with the bone and tissue to become a permanent restoration.

Supports a Healthy Jawbone

One complication of untreated tooth loss is bone loss; particularly, deterioration of the jawbone. This is because the tooth roots are no longer there to stimulate the jawbone, which means that new bone cells cannot develop. To prevent bone loss, our Reston, VA, restorative dentists will place the implant into the jawbone where it will stimulate the bone in the same way as a real tooth root. The result? No more bone loss!

Eat What You Love

If you live to eat then we know how much tooth loss can rob you of that enjoyment. Since dental implants become part of the jawbone you never have to worry about them moving or shifting around in your mouth, particularly when eating. This means that chewing is fully restored once you have your dental implant. We wouldn’t be too surprised if your first stop is to bite into a thick, juicy burger after you get your implant (just don’t forget to brush afterward!).

If you are interested in getting dental implants here in Reston, VA, then the next step is to find out if you are an ideal candidate for treatment. Call Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at (703) 437-5555 and let us know that you want to sit down and discuss getting dental implants.

Crowns are among the most common and practical restorative and cosmetic dental solutions used for repairing broken, chipped, weakened, or decayed teeth. Dental crowns are customized caps that fully encase damaged teeth. The procedure can effectively improve the functionality, boost the strength, and restore the size and shape of damaged teeth. Here at Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Reston, VA, our dentists, Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang, utilize dental crowns for restoring and protecting teeth that are badly decayed, chipped, weakened, or damaged.

When Are Dental Crowns Used?

There are various reasons dentists recommend a dental crown. These include the following scenarios:

For Aesthetic Purposes

If you have a stained or damaged tooth, a crown can easily enhance and restore its appearance. If you have a colored or unpleasant-looking dental filling, a dental crown could be utilized for covering it as well.

After a Root Canal Procedure

Root canal therapy is typically recommended for saving an irreparably infected or decayed tooth. After the root canal procedure, your dentist in Reston, VA, will fit a dental crown over the tooth, restoring its look and function.

After Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants act as synthetic replacements for natural tooth roots, while dental crowns replace lost teeth. Once an implant has been surgically placed into your jawbone, the crown will be placed on top of it, replacing the lost tooth.

To Strengthen a Weakened Tooth That’s Close to Breaking

A crown is likewise recommended for people who have extensive cracks in the teeth due to decay, damage, or large fillings, especially in cases where the tooth structure that’s left isn’t enough or is very weak. In addition, a cracked tooth could be extremely painful because of increased sensitivity, so a dental crown will provide relief and make the tooth more durable. In some cases, crowns are also used for damaged baby or milk teeth to try and save the teeth instead of extracting it before they are ready to fall off.

Crowns could be fabricated from different materials such as ceramic, porcelain, composite resins, acrylics, metal alloys, and gold. Porcelain dental crowns are the most commonly used option because of their natural look and strength. However, it will be up to your dentist to determine the most suitable type of crown material based on your specific circumstances.

Having the confidence to show off your smile can be quite difficult if you have discolored teeth. Fortunately, here at Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Reston, VA, our dentists, Dr. Monica Neshat and Dr. Joy Jang, can suggest a number of options to treat your dental stains.

Types of Dental Stains

Dentists normally classify dental stains as either intrinsic or extrinsic. What is the difference?

  • Intrinsic – the source of discoloration comes from within the tooth and affects the dentin or its inner layer under the enamel. Common causes include taking medicines, tooth trauma, genetics, internal bleeding, or age.
  • Extrinsic – occurs outside the enamel and is normally attributed to either advanced age or lifestyle choices of a person.

Intrinsic dental stains cannot be treated by whitening solutions because these do not go beyond the enamel. Usually, the option for dental stains of this type is to use veneers or bonding. This will result in the covering of the stain and restore the teeth to your desired color. Bonding is used for a couple of teeth while veneers are used form complete makeover.

Custom teeth whitening kits may be recommended for extrinsic stains, but, the effects may take longer and may not be as acceptable as having an in-office treatment with your Reston, VA, dentists.

The Bleaching Process

One of the more popular bleaching processes today is Zoom. It is designed to target the dentin and enamel to restore teeth discoloration. The process relies on the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp that accelerates whitening by activating 25% hydrogen peroxide. The process allows oxygen to enter into the dentin and enamel and bleach the stained portions without affecting the tooth structure.

During treatment, the whitening gel is applied and stays for 15 minutes while it is being treated with light activation. Three sessions of light activation are required to complete the entire treatment in under an hour. The teeth are treated immediately with fluoride paste gel to reduce its sensitivity.

Other Options for Getting Rid of Dental Stains

Aside from what has already been mentioned, other treatment options for dental stains include:

  • Exercise proper oral hygiene
  • Invest in periodic professional cleaning
  • Decay or filling restoration

How your dentists in Reston, VA, can rebuild your smile

If you need to replace missing teeth, you may be wondering what your tooth replacement options might be. Thanks to modern dental treatments and materials, you now have more ways to replace teeth than ever before. Dr. Monica A. Neshat and Dr. Joy C. Yang of Reston Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Reston, VA, offer a wide range of tooth replacement options to choose from to rebuild your smile—read on to learn more!

Dental implants

One of the most popular tooth replacement options available today comes in the form of dental implants. With the ability to look and function just like natural teeth, implants are fully embedded in bone, ensuring that they will never move around. You also brush and floss dental implants just like natural teeth, so it’s easy to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Dental implants can last a lifetime and the dental crown material is stain-resistant, providing years of exquisite, natural beauty. Finally, they are the most successful surgical implant, boasting a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Bridgework

Another great option to replace teeth is dental bridgework. With this treatment option, you can either replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of prosthetic teeth, called pontics, which take the place of missing teeth. The pontics are supported by the teeth adjacent to the vacant space. These teeth are crowned and the bridge is cemented onto them. Dental bridgework is a convenient solution because you never have to remove the piece.

Dental Appliances

Dental appliances are another popular choice for tooth replacement. Whether you need to replace just a few teeth with a partial denture, or need to replace a complete arch of teeth with a full denture, dental appliances are an economical tooth replacement option. They are sturdy and built to last, providing years of dependable smiles. You can choose from immediate appliances, which are placed right after teeth are removed, or conventional appliances, which are placed after your tissue has healed at about 6 to 8 weeks.
