Take care of your gums. That's one piece of advice from the staff at Universal Smiles DC. Gum problems can spread to the teeth and cause damage to the enamel, which could eventually necessitate extensive restoration or total tooth replacement. Although Dr. Bilal Ahmed specializes in prosthodontics treatments, such as dental implants, veneers, and crowns, he and his team would rather maintain teeth.
To ensure patients stay healthy, when crafting crowns, Dr. Ahmed fuses the porcelain with pure gold because gold is more organic and better accepted by the body and most monarchs than nickel, silver, or mercury. Laser gum treatments reduce the excessive bleeding often found with blade contouring, and digital x-rays cut down on the patient's exposure to radiation.
The staff also looks out for patients’ comfort with cable TV in every operatory. Patients waiting in the reception area sink into the pillowy depths of oversized plush chairs while snacking and sipping bottled water.
