Combining general and cosmetic care with orthodontic services, Kentlands Dental Care offers multiple ways to protect patients' mouths. Dr. Roxana Homayoun and her staff put visitors at ease by creating a calm and relaxing environment. The team even includes individuals who can converse in a number of languages, including Spanish, Farsi, Hebrew, Lithuanian, and Morse code. Modern technology makes appointments run smooth, as the staff uses intraoral cameras and digital x-rays to quickly and efficiently scan for troublesome signs. When it comes to correcting issues, tooth-colored composite fillings and porcelain veneers help replace damaged areas and Dr. Homayoun's orthodontic procedures can straighten smiles. Kentlands Dental Care also offers surgical services for more serious concerns.
Under the direct supervision of Dr. Alicia Jones, a graduate of the University of Columbia, the licensed staffers at Reflections administer a variety of aesthetic services, ranging from laser hair removal and microdermabrasion to chemical peels and Botox injections. They also treat problematic skin aesthetics, busting stubborn acne breakouts, freeing legs of unsightly spider veins, and easing the effects of hyperpigmentation.
Dr. Kokabi Ludi and the team at Lansdowne Dental Arts emphasize education and preventive care within a practice outfitted with the latest in dental technology. New-patient exams begin with a professional cleaning, which removes plaque, nixes tartar, and polishes teeth till they’re shinier than a seal in a patent-leather wetsuit. X-rays detect decay, tumors, or bone loss, and also illustrate the root positions of all teeth. The exam can help to stave off illness through early detection, inspecting the mouth for oral cancer, gum disease, decay, or vampire fangs. Alternatively, a custom-made tray lifts stains from patients' mouth bones, and a Zoom! whitening treatment lightens chompers with gel and three 15-minute blasts of focused light.
Dr. Narjes Abtahi, a graduate of the Medical College of Virginia Dental School, restores symmetry to disorderly mouthscapes with Invisalign treatments. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
The Royal Care Dentistry team—a dentist, an orthodontist, and a dental assistant—help keep chompers healthy for the long run. Dr. Haghighi helps prevent dental decay and fix and painful issues that may arise, while Dr. Heller keeps patients' teeth looking perfect with Invisalign and other teeth-straightening options. Together they treat visitors of all ages, drawing upon years of experience and giving each patient lots of personal attention.
Seasoned dentist Dr. Thomas J. Fenlon, DDS helps patients achieve winning smiles through a toothsome array of cosmetic, preventative, and restorative dental services. During an initial consultation to determine candidacy for adult cosmetic orthodontics (a $135 value), the dental doyen administers a set of X-rays (a $43 value) to assess structural damage beneath the surface. Patients then chomp down on a malleable material to create a set of doppelganger tooth impressions (a $105 value), which grant Dr. Fenlon an additional view of enamel fencing, and make the perfect host gift for a mixer at Stephen King's house.
