What does Cosmetic Treatment at Aviva often involve?

On your initial visit to Aviva Dentistry Ltd in St Albans first we will listen to YOU, and address all your needs and concerns. Once we have fully understood your requirements we will assess your smile to ensure that it is suitable for the treatment being considered. We will present all the possible treatment options to you and answer any questions that you may have. A digital image of your possible new smile will be presented to you. Before and after pictures of similar smile problems will be shown to you, to demonstrate what we can achieve. It is important to us that you completely understand every step of your treatment plan and the likely expected results.

We will always present to you a fully itemised breakdown of the costs of your treatment plan. At Aviva we don’t want finance to be a barrier to having the smile of your dreams and we offer a wide range of finance plans to help spread the cost of your treatment over time making it more affordable.

After a treatment plan has been agreed, we will make a 'diagnostic wax-up' - this allows us to make a model of your teeth and to produce a 'trial smile', essential for the proper planning of your smile.

On your next visit we carefully shape your teeth and fit beautiful temporaries to duplicate the 'trial smile'. About 3 days later we will make fine adjustments to these temporaries to ensure that they meet all your desires of shape and colour. Some people want a 'Hollywood Smile' whilst others want a more subtle change. The trial smile allows you to make that important final decision.

On the final visit the your new smile will be fitted and you can leave with the smile you have always desired!

Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacements for damaged or lost tooth roots and once placed and secured can be used to secure crowns, bridges and dentures into place. Dr Caplan uses the highest quality titanium dental implants in Hertfordshire. The procedure involves accurately drilling a hole for the implant which is then screwed or tapped into place. The implant is left to heal for 3-6 months so that the surrounding bone tissue can anchor onto the surface of the implant and grow into its microscopic rough surface. Once the dental implant has fully integrated into the jawbone then it can be restored with a porcelain crown, bridges or several implants can be used to secure dentures into place. Dental implants look and feel like your own natural teeth and can last for many years.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are wafer thin shells of porcelain or ceramic that can be stuck or more accurately bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They can be used to correct crooked teeth, stained teeth, teeth that are too short or misshapen and broken teeth. Several dental veneers are often used in smile makeovers to give a perfectly aligned and symmetrical looking bright smile. At Aviva cosmetic dentistry in St Albans London, we offer 2 types of veneers, same day cerec ceramic veneers and laboratory made porcelain veneers. The laboratory made veneers require two visits to the practice and take approximately 2 weeks to be fabricated; they are hand crafted by a ceramist. Cerec Veneers are accurately milled onsite within about 20 minutes and can be fitted to your existing teeth within about an hour. Cerec veneers are stained, polished and glazed by hand to give the perfect colour match and aesthetic result.
