Sparkling, straight white teeth can change your life, both socially and professionally. Cosmetic dentist Farhad Hakim, DDS has years of experience in a wide range of sophisticated dental makeover options and will work with you to create the bright, healthy smile you want. If you're struggling with the effects of stained, chipped, and crooked teeth, it's time to contact Dr. Hakim.
Many of our Herndon, Virginia cosmetic dentistry patients have found that results can be quick and dramatic. At Herndon Dental Center we're ready to schedule appointments at a time that's convenient for you. We offer a wide range of affordable payment options to fit your budget.
Some of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer include:
You don't have to live with your old metal fillings. Using tooth-colored fillings, Dr. Hakim can transform your metal mouth into a whiter, more natural smile. And you don't have to worry about the composite wearing down or causing other teeth to wear.
That means no more traditional silver fillings (which could turn black over time) messing up your otherwise beautiful smile! Dr. Hakim's tooth-colored fillings can replace these discolored amalgams with a composite resin that gives your smile a more natural look with as much strength and durability as silver.
One consultation with Dr. Hakim could be all you need to decide if tooth-colored fillings are your cosmetic dentistry makeover solution. You don't even have to leave Herndon for dramatic makeover results. These natural-looking composite resin fillings will match your teeth so perfectly and so greatly outlast your old-fashioned metal fillings, you'll wonder why you didn't ask for them earlier!
Do you have teeth that are crooked, too long, too short, or discolored? Porcelain veneers may be the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution for you. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that can transform the shape, color, and length of a tooth in as little as two visits. They are so natural and comfortable, you'll wish you had asked for them years ago!
A veneer consists of biomaterials that can revolutionize your smile without invasive treatments. Embarrassing gaps and cracked, weakened, and discolored teeth are a thing of the past with ultra-thin porcelain dental veneers. These natural-looking teeth replacements return structural integrity to your teeth and a smile to your face.
Because of the custom fit and the slightly translucent finish of dental veneers, no one will believe you're wearing them – and neither will you, until you see what a gorgeous, perfect smile you now get to show off!
Dark metallic fillings are no longer your only option. At Herndon Dental Center you can now choose bright white porcelain crowns instead. Keep your mouth looking naturally healthy with porcelain "caps" or crowns.
Dr. Farhad Hakim's dental crown services offer a chance to completely restore a cracked or broken tooth or a decayed tooth that can no longer hold a filling. Crowns not only look natural, but they feel and function like natural teeth.
Because a crown fit by Dr. Hakim sits so snugly on the base of your gum line, it won't bother you at all. In fact, crowns, or caps made of metal or porcelain that completely cover and protect what remains of the natural tooth, are an extreme improvement when dealing with problematic teeth.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be a candidate for dental bridges, another "fixed" dentistry solution that, like crowns, offer greater freedom than removable appliances or partial dentures.
These bridges consist of using crowns on either side of the gap created by missing teeth and then inserting a false tooth or teeth in between the crowns to close the gap. Dental bridges can not only fix your smile, but they can also help you to chew and speak better.
Whether you have chipped, decayed, or discolored teeth, tooth bonding can refresh your smile in under an hour! During this painless procedure, Dr. Hakim will apply a durable tooth-colored material to your teeth and then harden it with a special light. And just like that, cosmetic flaws and dental damage will be a thing of the past.
Whitening is one of the easiest ways to look years younger by brightening discolored teeth to show off a brilliant, white smile. Everyone could use whiter teeth, as discoloring occurs frequently with aging, use of medication, smoking, or frequently drinking coffee, soda, and tea. Teeth whitening is Dr. Hakim's easy, immediately noticeable extreme cosmetic dentistry makeover solution!
Achieving a gorgeous, white smile is as simple as making one initial appointment with Dr. Hakim in which he will custom fit a tooth whitening gel tray for your teeth. Then follow Dr. Hakim's instructions and continue the whitening treatments at home until you're proud to flash a brilliantly white smile!
Want a more natural-looking and more comfortable cosmetic dentistry solution to missing or chipped teeth than removable dentures? Dr. Farhad Hakim of Herndon offers dental implants, which are permanently anchored into the jawbone and make for better chewing and a more natural smile.
Dental implants are structures that anchor artificial teeth to your jaw permanently. And since they're customized just for you, it gives you a natural feeling similar to having your own teeth back again. At Herndon Dental Center, we'll evaluate your oral tissues and jawbone ridges to ensure that you're a good candidate for implants. There's nothing like the confidence that a full set of teeth gives you!
We're not kidding when we say that dental implants are the most natural-looking way to replace missing teeth. The jawbone actually forms a chemical and mechanical bond with the implant and grows right into the implanted device. However, only patients with healthy oral tissues and mostly intact jawbones are eligible for dental implants. If you aren't a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Hakim will explain other options for transforming your smile.
Dentures are false teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. Various types of dentures include:
- Complete and partial dentures
- Removable dentures
- Implant retained dentures
Complete dentures cover the entire upper or lower jaw while partial dentures cover a tooth or two. Although they might feel a little uncomfortable initially, dentures look very similar to natural teeth. Dentures need to be changed after a while as the shape of your mouth changes with time. Visit Herndon Dental Center for affordable dentures in Herndon.
Teeth can become worn down over time from a number of causes, including teeth grinding (bruxism), abrasion (using an abrasive toothbrush or toothpaste), or erosion of tooth enamel due to acidic substances (drinking too many acidic fruit drinks or carbonated beverages, or being exposed to excess stomach acids from gastroesophageal reflux disease [GERD]).
If you have teeth that are worn or eroded, Dr. Hakim can provide personalized solutions to restore your teeth to a beautiful, natural state. Depending upon the condition of your teeth and the number of affected teeth, he may suggest treatments such as crowns, veneers, bridges, whitening, and/or bonding.
TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a painful condition affecting the jaw joint. The lower jaw is attached to your skull by muscles and the two temporomandibular joints located near your ears. TMJ can cause pain in your jaw joint when it moves, in addition to causing headaches, neck pain, and back pain.
Dr. Hakim provides customized TMJ treatments, including full-mouth rehabilitation involving crowns, veneers, and/or other dental procedures to help end your TMJ pain for good. Though TMJ treatment can often take time, the results are very impactful and can change your life.
