Meet Our Dentist

He graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of California of Irvine. He spent most of his free time in college tutoring and teaching other students. "Being a dentist is more than just fixing teeth. I like to educate my patients about things they are unaware of. Like how your teeth can impact your overall health, how your bite relationship affects your balance and other dentistry secrets that go beyond just looking good and eating well!"
Dr. Jazayeri attended the highly prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry. He graduated in 2005. Following graduation, he completed a one-year General Practice Residency training at St. Barnabas Hospital located in the Bronx, NY. Dr. Jazayeri came to the realization that his primary passion is in cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry. He took many Continuing Education courses in pursuit of his passion, including completion of a one-year training at Implants Seminar taught by world-renowned Dr. Arun Garg.
Dr. Jazayeri pushes himself to excel at performing simple and complex dentistry. Dr. Jazayeri's dedication to his passion for modern dentistry allows him to deliver superior care and an everlasting smile. His philosophy is to restore teeth worth saving and replace failing and infected teeth with dental implants. Outside of the office, Dr. J loves to hang out with his wife, a computer engineer, and his two young daughters.
Porcelain Veneers by Dr. J
Looking for a way to improve your smile? Dr. Jazayeri will offer you a complete smile makeover with porcelain veneers. You can replace that one snag/yellow/cracked tooth with a single porcelain veneer to restore its looks and function. Or, you can replace your entire upper and/or lower teeth with 6 to 20 porcelain veneers to completely transform your smile. There are many different reasons why patients choose to get their smiles enhanced with porcelain veneers. You may have crooked, yellow teeth that are an eye sore. You may have teeth that have been damaged over the decades subsequent to grinding, aging, and other bad habits. Porcelain veneers can fix all of these issues and change your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry requires lots of patients, focus, and experience. Dr. Jazayeri has performed hundreds of smile makeovers using porcelain veneers. Let's preview what a typical smile restoration looks like. First, we take an impression of your teeth to do a mockup. The mockup will display what your final smile is going to look like. It allows you to visualize your final smile before we even start working on your teeth. The porcelain veneer process itself typically takes 2 to 4 weeks. You will be wearing temporaries during this time. Once the final teeth are ready, we will try them in your mouth. Love your new smile? You will receive your porcelain veneers and are ready to concur the world with your new smile! Like them, but not in love? We will send the porcelain veneers back to the lab to alter their appearance until you're in love with them.
Scared of getting your teeth fixed? Dr. J offers a few different options to help those who are super nervous:
Nitrous Oxide gas: Nitrous Oxide is available on demand for a nominal fee to help you relax through your visit. Inhale the gas to relax and get your work done in no time.
Oral conscious sedation: You will be happy to know that Dr. J is certified in offering Oral Conscious Sedation (lic #3763). This level of sedation is reserved for complex cases that take a few hours to complete. Examples include full mouth implant treatments, all-on-4 surgeries, wisdom extractions, etc.
General anesthesia can also be performed with our board-certified anesthesiologists for cases that don't qualify for conscious sedation technique. Inquire about your options for sedation if interested.
