Shila Yazdani, D.D.S., an expert implantologist, and Michael M. Mortazie, D.D.S., a specialist in prosthetic and neuromuscular dentistry, join forces at Revive Dentistry. Though they oversee standard exams and cleanings, these multi-talented dentists also improve dental appearance and function through a range of cosmetic and surgical services. Porcelain veneers and crowns are custom-fit to protect and restore the appearance of damaged teeth, while Invisalign straightening and teeth whitening make chompers precise and attractive enough to cut the ribbon at an opening ceremony. Technicians' adept hands also correct jaw function with neuromuscular therapy and specialized dental implants. The clinic doesn't just fix problems, though: diagnostic equipment from OralDNA Labs helps to uncover mouth disease and prevent additional damage.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
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.
Choose among three eco-friendly pleasures at Natural Body Spa: aromatherapy massage, signature Natural Body facial, or mani-pedi with all-natural products from Jurlique, AVEDA, Dani, and E.O. Natural Body Spa's Ashburn location was one of the first LEED spas, and the DC location earned a gold certification from LEED and won the DC Environmental Excellence Award. Plus its owner worked at Whole Foods.

Dr. Allena Willis Kennerly uses three types of treatments to straighten crooked smiles. The orthodontist glues traditional metal or ceramic braces onto teeth. Alternatively, she crafts Invisalign clear retainers, which can easily be removed during meals or to brush and blow-dry teeth. While most of the patients at Smashing Smiles Orthodontics are adults, Dr. Kennerly also works with teens and evaluates children as young as aged 7 for treatments that reduce the need for braces in the future.
