Cosmetic Dental Care
A straighter, healthier looking smile does more than just boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. Patients who suffer from crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth often suffer from higher rates of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. That's because crooked teeth that overlap are simply harder to clean when compared to a straighter smile.
If you've always wanted to get the smile of your dreams, Invisalign is the answer. Invisalign is a revolutionary tooth straightening system that offers all of the rewards of traditional metal braces without the unsightly wires and brackets that most people imagine when they think about orthodontics. Even more exciting, Invisalign treatments are typically shorter than traditional braces, which means a healthier smile in less time!
Invisalign uses custom-made plastic aligners that are designed to gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. Simply change out your aligner every few weeks until your treatment is complete. Invisalign treatment offers several advantages over traditional braces. Being able to remove your aligner during meals allows you to continue eating all of your favorite foods. Plus, brushing your teeth is just as convenient and easy as ever. Of course, the most exciting advantage to Invisalign treatment is that - due to the nearly invisible nature of the aligners - most people will never know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Just one look at the remarkable difference that a teeth-whitening treatment can make to the color and appearance of a smile, and it's easy to see why teeth whitening has become the most commonly performed cosmetic dental treatment in the U.S.
Teeth whitening is a safe and affordable treatment option for any patient who currently enjoys good oral health. Depending on your preference, Dr. Zavari can lighten your top or bottom teeth, or both.
We provide our patients with 1 hour In-Office teeth whitening or custom-made clear plastic trays that you fill with a special whitening agent designed to remove stains from the surface of your teeth. Once your teeth reach your preferred brightness, only occasional treatments are needed to maintain your beautiful new smile.
Dental Tooth Bonding
Dental tooth bonding uses a resin that is placed on teeth to lighten stains, close minor gaps, correct crooked teeth, or restore teeth impacted by decay. After a tooth has been prepared, Dr. Zavari will place a bonding resin on the desired position. The tooth is then contoured and colored to improve the appearance of your smile. As a final step, the bonded tooth is cured with a high-intensity light before the surface of the tooth is polished.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from ceramic that bond directly to the front of your teeth. Veneers work to correct the appearance of uneven, chipped, stained, or crooked teeth. These ultra-thin veneers are nearly unnoticeable and highly resistant to stains from substances like tea, coffee, or tobacco.
In most cases, it takes three visits to our Beaverton dental office to complete the placement of dental veneers. During your first appointment, Dr. Zavari will take an impression of your teeth to use in the creation of your custom-made veneers. The second appointment will involve Dr. Zavari preparing your teeth for the final placement of the veneers. Finally, your veneers will be polished and placed into their permanent position during your last appointment.
Dental implants are permanent fixtures made of titanium that replace the roots of a tooth. Implants are surgically placed into your jaw bone to act as an anchor for the placement of a crown or denture.
Dental implants offer a number of advantages, including increased stability and functionality. Dental implants tend to look and feel better than traditional dentures or dental bridges, while also providing the same bite force as fixed bridges. Best of all, implants can last a lifetime if properly maintained.
The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed, the gums are sutured.
The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time, you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
After the implant has healed, it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. One this is placed, an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant, it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
