The doctors and staff at Lake Ridge Dental Care know that many people harbor anxiety about visiting the dentist. That's why they focus on making each visit as friendly and relaxing as possible, specializing in sedation dentistry. With sedation dentistry, a series of pills taken the night before and the morning of the appointment help guests release their anxieties, unlike thinking about the kind of clown that sits under the bed, waiting, always waiting. Other services include tooth whitening, dental implants, and Invisalign straightening.
• For $69, you get a teeth cleaning, examination with x-rays, and smile consultation (a $320 value). • For $179, you get an in-office Zoom! teeth whitening (a $500 value). The on-site orthodontic specialists and other dental dynamos at Sasan Ahmadiyar, DDS & Associates champion sparkling teeth with advanced preventative and cosmetic oral care. During the examination, a technician appraises mouth stones by highlighting cavities and other fixable flaws, using x-rays to reveal concealed damage. Then, a thorough cleaning decimates plaque and clingy spinach, untarnishing grills for a smile brighter than a light bulb solving a Rubik's cube in 12 seconds. As they admire their work, dental professions will also provide customers with a smile consultation to discuss cosmetic options for improving grins and increasing the chances of being stunt doubles during action-packed toothbrush commercials.
Drs. Medhat Ghannam and Bernard Lynch both completed dental residencies at veterans' hospitals—Baltimore VA Medical Center and Hampton VA Medical Center, respectively. They both decided to keep their roots planted in Virginia with Artisan Dental of Burke, where they commit themselves to making sure patients are comfortable. They and their staff can schedule an array of general, cosmetic, and sedation dentistry services, everything from routine dental exams with digital x-rays to more advanced services such as dental implants and Invisalign procedures performed by a thousand tooth fairies.
At Burke Cosmetic Dentistry, doctors Hashem Sedaghatpour and Farnaz Jabbari combine their experience to offer complete oral health care. Their expertise encompasses general and cosmetic treatments as well as surgical dentistry such as extractions and implants. The doctors rely on the latest in technology—such as using Waterlase in place of traditional drills to remove tooth decay—to administer gentle and effective procedures. With electric handpieces they can also perform root canals more quickly and with less discomfort, and they use digital x-rays to reduce exposure to radiation.
At Bela Luz Health Salon, which derives its name from the Portuguese words for “beautiful light,” wellness specialists harness the power of light-based technology and detox treatments to instill a sense of wellbeing from the inside out. The techs coddle mainframes in herbal and mineral body wraps, which sculpt sleeker shapes while ousting toxins through the lymphatic system. Infrared light shares the stage in a duo of treatments, soothing muscles alongside jade rollers in sauna massage beds and reversing wrinkles while hides soak up UV rays during skin-rejuvenation tanning. Additionally, Bela Luz’s skin savants utilize LED light to chase away fine lines and monsters during DermaKinetics and LED photo facials.
At Smiles at Fairfax Corner, Dr. Rayek and his team use the latest technology to keep smiles gleaming. Their prized centerpieces are the E4D and iTero CAD scanner machines, which use laser-guided cameras to quickly create digital plans for crowns and bridges. Once a plan has been designed, the in-house lab can create the oral additions in as little as an hour. Dr. Rayek is also an Invisalign Elite Premier Provider who can straighten teeth with custom-fitted, translucent mouth trays or simply a stern look.
