What Is Pro-Active Dentistry?
Patients actively seeking to address their dental concerns to improve the appearance of their teeth have a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures to choose from. Porcelain crowns and porcelain bridges allow teeth to be repaired or replaced with a durable material that mimics the color of the patient’s original teeth, often resulting in a very natural look and feel. Tooth-colored fillings and inlays also provide a method of dental repair with results that can seamlessly blend with the rest of the patient’s smile.
Regaining Chewing Function
With the recent advancements in restorative dentistry, more people have been able to fully restore functionality to their teeth than ever before. Our range of dental implant procedures can replace broken or missing teeth with secure restorations that are integrated into the patient’s mouth, typically resulting in a natural-looking and natural-feeling appearance. Implant crowns, implant bridges, and implant-secured dentures allow people to eat and speak with ease while simultaneously delivering beautiful results.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures can improve the appearance of your smile as well as your oral health. Options such as teeth whitening can lighten and brighten the shade of your existing teeth, while porcelain veneers can be used to quickly and easily remedy stained, misaligned, or chipped teeth.
For patients looking to address multiple cosmetic dental issues or reverse the effects that aging can have on the teeth, Dr. Kaviani also offers comprehensive smile makeovers. As we grow older, our teeth gradually show signs of natural wear and tear. Tobacco use and drinking beverages such as wine and coffee can also have a cumulative impact on our teeth. Using a combination of age-reversing dentistry procedures, Dr. Kaviani can address many common cosmetic concerns such as stains, chips, cracks, crooked teeth, missing teeth, visible metal fillings, bite misalignment, and uneven gum lines.
Restoring Oral Health
To ensure our patients maintain healthy mouths as well as their beautiful smiles, we recommend them to have routine cleanings and exams at least twice per year. advanced digital X-ray technology allows prompt detection of any emerging dental issues, and teeth cleanings provide a deeper clean and polish that can be achieved with standard brushing and flossing.
Full mouth reconstructions
The instability inherent in a broken down bite forces the need for consistent ongoing treatment. The bite owner will suffer persisting pain, impaired function, displeasing aesthetics and jaw joint problems. If left, we usually witness the premature loss of all teeth. The rehabilitation of a broken down bite can be one of the most challenging procedures in dentistry.
Dental implants, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, porcelain inlays and onlays, dental bridges and teeth whitening can be used as part of the restoration. Full mouth rehabilitation seeks to take an overall view of your dental health, often requiring the rebuilding of every tooth. The process can be extensive, but the functional and aesthetic results can be amazing.
Active Maintenance & Prevention
Poor dental hygiene is responsible for a wide range of gum and jaw bone diseases amongst a host of other things. Most people think that dental hygiene is just about having your teeth cleaned. An appointment with our gentle dental Hygienist is far more than that and includes the treatment of gum disease, management of jaw bone and the prevention of cavities.

Dental Health Checks
Conditions affecting the gums, teeth, and mouth can often be painless, going unnoticed for prolonged periods of time. That’s why our experienced team think it is imperative that you visit your dentist at regular intervals to for dental health checks to ensure your oral health is in excellent condition
Blood pressure screening
This is offered as a complimentary service to our patients as part of their regular dental health checks. It is well documented that many people attend their dentists more often than their GPs – and so by providing this service we aim to alert any patient who may have high blood pressure.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is generally a painless disease, and, if caught early, the survival rates are much higher than if it is detected later. All our hygienist, dental therapist, and cosmetic dentists are trained in oral cancer screening, and we absolutely believe in providing this service at every dental health review.
Signs of periodontal disease include bleeding of the gums or pocketing around teeth. This allows bacteria to enter the bloodstream and can damage the heart and cardiac vessels. It has also been linked to diabetes and low birth-weight.
As part of our Health Screening and Prevention Protocol, we may recommend Bacterial testing to enable us to give you the most up-to-date, evidence-based treatment options for treating gum disease.
This may be necessary if traditional hygiene therapy is not effective when combatting bacteria present in the mouth. With targeted antibiotic therapy the cleaning process and immune system will efficiently halt the progression of the disease.
Our teeth screenings include regular x-rays. This allows us to accurately view the mouth from all angles. We can also use tools such as laser light to detect hidden areas of tooth decay or hairline cracks. All of our subsequent prevention programs are tailored for the individual.
