Your Questions

Sterling Dentist serving Ashburn, Herndon, Reston, & Loudoun, VA

Your questions are important to us. Here are questions that other patients have asked, along with our answers. Do you have concerns that aren't listed here? Give our Sterling, VA dental office a call. We're always happy to talk with you.



What sets your dental practice apart from the rest?

Our practice offers cutting-edge treatment and technology, but with the familiarity and friendliness of a small-town, family dentist. We take advantage of all of the latest developments, but we also take the time to get to know you.


I get anxious just thinking about dental work. What can you do to help put me at ease?

Most people feel a little nervous about dental procedures, but for some, the anxiety can seem almost debilitating. Fortunately, there are many options available to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is a great choice for patients who feel a little on edge. Others may benefit from oral sedation—the dentist can prescribe a pill for you to take before your procedure so that you will barely be aware of it.


Do you accept my dental insurance?

We accept most dental insurance and can even file claims for you electronically. We also offer third party financing through CareCredit, CitiHealth, and Unicorn. Contact our Sterling,VA dental office anytime to learn more about how we can help make your dental experience affordable for you.


If I have a dental emergency after hours, is there a way I can reach you?

Absolutely. We recognize that dental emergencies can happen at any time. So, she has employed a special paging service for after hours. Simply call our dental office in Sterling and leave a message, and Dr. Kavianpour automatically will be paged.


How does Dr. Kavianpour stay on top of new dental technology?

Dentistry has changed a lot in the 20 years since Dr. Kavianpour began practicing, and she's made it a priority to stay ahead of the curve. She continues to hone her expertise by logging in many hours of continuing education coursework.


What precautions do you take to ensure patient safety?

Our staff is up-to-date on patient safety measures and sterilization procedures. We thoroughly sterilize all of our equipment and instruments before any procedure. Still, we recognize that dental work can be a nervous venture for some of our patients. If you have concerns about your safety, let's talk about them.


I want to improve the appearance of my front teeth, but I don't want braces. Are there other options?

Veneers are a great option for many people who want to improve the look of their front teeth. These are custom-made, tooth-colored pieces that affix to the front of teeth and can instantly correct many cosmetic concerns. You also may consider Invisalign to gradually straighten your teeth with clear, removable mouthpieces. Read more about these and other services on our site.


What options do you offer for whitening teeth?

With Zoom! Whitening, you can have remarkably whiter teeth in as little as an hour. This in-office teeth whitening system is a great option for patients who want fast results.


Where can I learn more about crowns, veneers, and porcelain inlays and onlays, and other services?

Our services section includes information on many of our procedures. We also can point you to some other reputable sites to learn more, such as the American Dental Association and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Of course, you always can ask Dr. Kavianpour or any of our knowledgeable staff members any questions you might have.
