Frequently Asked Questions

The world of dentistry is vast, and visitors to our website may find themselves left with questions or concerns about the work we perform. Below, you will find many of the questions our team receives on a regular basis and their respective answers. Please contact Capitol Dental Group here in Washington, DC directly if you cannot find the information you are looking for. We will be happy to help you.

How often should I be visiting the dentist?

Generally, we recommend that patients schedule two checkups and cleanings every six months, or twice in a calendar year. If there are extenuating circumstances, such as the presence of gum disease or extreme sensitivity to tooth decay, we may recommend more frequent appointments so that we can better assist you in maintaining excellent oral health.

What’s the best way to replace my missing teeth?

Dental implants are a state-of-the-art restorative service that can seamlessly rebuild the health, strength, and attractiveness of natural teeth. Dr. Bakhtyari and Dr. Mokhtarzadeh both enthusiastically recommend this option for patients in need. The benefits they offer for your wellbeing and quality of life will be numerous. We also provide traditional bridges and dentures as alternatives. During an initial consultation, we will help you determine the choice that fits your personal needs and preferences best.

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes. If you’re experiencing a serious injury and/or oral pain, please don’t hesitate to contact us for emergency assistance. We will see you as soon as possible.

Can you help me improve the appearance of my smile?

Our practice features a comprehensive variety of services, including several cosmetic options that can help your smile’s confidence flourish. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, direct bonding, and more are available upon request. Our dentists can help you determine the best treatment plan for your goals during an initial consultation.

Will my new dental crown look unnatural?

At Capitol Dental Group, we offer metal-free, all-ceramic materials for your restorations. Your new crown will blend in with the natural teeth and provide durable function and comfort.

My gums bleed when I brush and floss. Should I be worried?

Bleeding gums are always a cause for concern. The most likely reason behind your symptom is gum disease. This infection will threaten your oral health and strong teeth over time. Please schedule an appointment with our team right away for diagnostic care and effective therapy.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. Capitol Dental Group is happy to work with CareCredit, which offers flexible payment plans to patients that come with little to no interest. Please visit our new patients page to learn more about this option.
