General Dentist in Washington D.C.

When it comes to maintaining a great smile for life, having a strong foundation of healthy teeth and gums is key. That’s why Dr. Shakrokh Soltani and the rest of our team at My Face My Smile have dedicated themselves to providing several comprehensive general dentistry options that are designed to both effectively treat any problems that may arise and prevent them from ever happening in the first place. We always have your comfort in mind, and we’ll do whatever we can to help you feel completely at ease as we create a better, brighter smile for you to enjoy.

Dental Check-Ups & Cleanings

Although the American Dental Association strongly recommends that patients of all ages attend regular check-ups and cleanings, many patients don’t visit their dentist until they have a serious problem. Here at My Face My Smile, we want to make your visits as stress-free as possible, and maintaining these vital appointments helps us accomplish this important goal. During your in-depth evaluation, Dr. Soltani will carefully inspect your teeth, gums, mouth tissue, tongue, and jaw. An exam will allow him to create a complete picture of your oral health and recommend treatment options accordingly. Additionally, a cleaning with one of our trusted hygienists will get rid of persistent plaque and tartar buildup, leaving you with teeth that feel polished and refreshed.

Root Canal Therapy

We often recommend root canal therapy when a tooth is badly decayed inside and in danger of requiring extraction. While this procedure may have earned a scary reputation over the years, the truth is that our state-of-the-art technology here in Washington, D.C. makes it a very safe and successful option. During the process, our team will create a hole in the affected tooth so as to remove the diseased pulp and thoroughly clean the entire area. Then, we will fill it with a biocompatible material and seal the area so as to dramatically reduce your chances of experiencing another infection. Finally, a customized crown placed on top will seamlessly replenish any lost enamel structure. With the help of a diligent homecare routine and regular check-ups at our office, many treated teeth can go on to last for the rest of the patient’s life!

Dental Implants

Are you missing one or more teeth? No one should have to struggle with this issue, especially not when there’s a revolutionary reconstructive solution that offers more permanence and seamless quality than traditional options like dentures and bridges. Dental implants are created to replicate the entire structure of your tooth, including the root, which keeps the jawbone healthy and full. We’ll first place this new “root” into the appropriate socket so that it can create a new, strong foundation within your mouth. Once you’ve healed, a beautiful, customized restoration placed on top will give you back the strong, complete smile you need to enjoy life to the fullest. If you’re in need of tooth replacement, contact My Face My Smile today to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Soltani. A consultation will allow our team to determine whether dental implants are a viable option for your situation.

Oral Surgery

For patients with severe dental issues, oral surgery may become necessary to provide quality, long-lasting relief from pain and damage. Here in Washington, D.C., our team relies on the latest tools and techniques so we can ensure that your treatment goes as smoothly and comfortably as possible. Several cozy amenities are available too, as well as oral sedation for patients who may struggle with fear or anxiety before an appointment. We offer periodontal surgery, extractions, TMJ treatment, cosmetic alterations, and much more.

Nightguards & Sportsguards

Comfortable, customized oral appliances can often be a valuable tool for many patients in certain situations. If you’re struggling with nighttime teeth grinding that’s leaving you with painful headaches and worn-down teeth, a nightguard designed by Dr. Soltani can keep the health of your smile safe from this frustrating unconscious habit. Additionally, a sportsguard provides valuable protection against sports injuries just like a helmet or kneepad would, covering your teeth against direct blows and even reducing the severity of concussions, in many cases. At My Face My Smile, we’ll be happy to provide you with the perfect mouthguard for your needs.
