Cosmetic Dentures

Cosmetic Dentures in Kingston upon Thames

Since your teeth provide structure and support to your cheeks, tooth loss can result in the sagging of your cheeks and make you appear older than you are. If you have lost most or even all of your teeth, or have old, worn-out dentures, there are many options available for replacing missing teeth.

Flat pink dentures are a thing of the past as modern advances mean that we can now make dentures which are indistinguishable from real teeth.

As well as looking younger, you can smile and eat with confidence again with cosmetic dentures.

Wave goodbye to dentures that are unstable and prevent you from speaking and eating properly, embrace a new world of convenience and ease with cosmetic dentures from Jiva Dental.

If you’d like to find out more about cosmetic dentures and how they can give you your confidence back, call us on 020 8546 0011 or book an appointment online.

I am so pleased that I changed my dentist and joined Jiva Dental. Bob is brilliant as well as his welcoming team. I have had whitening (zoom) which Has given me brilliant results. My tooth implant at the front top of my mouth has been carried out by the team here, being in the most visible position in my mouth, it had to be perfect and it is. I am actually a nervous patient but trust everybody here so much that now I am quite relaxed.

I have just recently completed my invisilign course of treatment with Jiva Dental, Bob and all the team and could not be happier. I have never experianced such a fresh modern welcoming dental environment and such a helpful team. The result I have gained is beyond my expectaions and the comments I recieve about my teeth and smile are brilliant. Jiva Dental is certainly the best in my eyes and would highly recomend this friendly hard working dental practise to anyone!

Once you have experienced Jiva Dental you will never want to step foot in another dental surgery again. Dr Bob, Stella and the team are amazing !! They really do tick all of the boxes. From the moment you make contact with Jiva to make an appointment, Stella puts you at ease and then, when you walk into the surgery, the surroundings are so welcoming - it feels more like you have walked into the lobby of a boutique hotel than a dental surgery. Dr Bob is just outstanding. As well as being incredibly proficient (and efficient), he takes the time to explain what he is doing, what he has found, and shows you images of your teeth throughout your treatment so you understand what is being done and why - all while being very affable. He is simply the best dentist I have ever seen. As well as having my 30+ year old fillings replaced, I also had a Enlighten treatment to whiten my teeth. I now have the most fabulous looking teeth (I never thought I would have teeth that look this good !). The 2 week Enlighten treatment was so easy to follow. I was able to take the trays camping and on holidays to Europe without any problems. I have tried whitening treatments before - home kits and dentist treatments - and none of them came close to achieving the results that I obtained with Enlighten. My teeth even ended up brighter than that guaranteed shade of B1 ! (ask to see the before and after photos - WOW !) I am so, so happy with them !! Jiva Dental is a world apart from any dentist you have been to before. If I could give them 10 stars out of 5 I would - they really are that good.

Having avoided the dentist for many years because of fear and anxiety, I decided it was time to take action and my 2014 New Years resolution was to start looking after my teeth. Stella, Louisa and Bob were very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable within their practice. A very relaxed atmosphere and nice friendly feel to the place. Financially there was no surprises and all was disclosed at a fair price. The treatment was first class throughout my program and I'm very happy with the results so far. "I'm now currently working away in Norway for the next few years, however I do plan on keeping this dentist as my permanent choice as I have no complains and will book my appointments during a Saturday (yes it's open on Saturday which is very convenient) on my return for home breaks. I would certainly recommend the practice to family and friends in the future.

I had my 1st Dental Implant at Jivadental, I was slightly nervous prior to the implant but it was without doubt one of the most straight forward and pain free procedures I have experinced at the dentist, I've had fillings and crowns which took longer and were more complicated than this, the whole procedure was completed within 1/2 an hour and I was in and out of Jivadental in just over an hour. To anyone considering an implant I would have no hesitation in recommending Jivadental. I forgot to mention the friendly atmosphere of Jivadental, Stella and the rest of the staff made me feel completely at ease.

I had an implant placed at Jivadental and I am so pleased with the overall experience. I have now got the confidence to smile without covering my mouth and I don’t have to worry about my denture falling out anymore. I'm very pleased with the treatment that I received and the staff are lovely. I would recommend dental implants to anyone… it`s worth every penny.

I had never heard of Jivadental, apart from seeing their premises as I passed by on the bus, but as I needed a tooth implant I decided to see what they had to offer. From the moment I walked in I was made to feel very welcome, by Stella the receptionist, and was offered a very thorough explanation of what they had to offer. I am no stranger to tooth implants and as with any procedure it is a case of wanting it done by yesterday! Well they came pretty close as my whole procedure, from having the old tooth removed to the new tooth in place was just shy of three months. I was absolutely ecstatic as my other implants had taken so much longer. Jivadental offer a very professional service, lovely surroundings, lovely people - Stella. Bob the dentist and Jessica, his assistant. I was treated with every respect. made to feel at ease and very happy with the end result. I would not hesitate to use their services again as the whole experience was an absolute pleasure, and I am sure not many people would use those words and 'the dentist' in the same sentence!! I would definitely recommend Jivadental.

September 2013

I have a very severe dental and needle phobia; so much so that I cancelled two recent appointments elsewhere for surgery, the first because the dentist was uncompassionate and the second because I needed a blood test. This resulted in serious infection under my upper and lower teeth, pushing my teeth out and causing horrendous pain. After years of seeing 'butchers' and being practically abused by dentists, I vowed only to let the very best dentist in the business even put a mirror into my mouth. Well, after much searching, I found them! I entered Jiva Dental's front door and stood at the bottom of the stairs, quaking at the thought of having needles and extractions. I took a moment to think about how lovely everyone was when I saw them for my initial chat and how they'd been so helpful on the phone and via email. I thought about how Bob was so empathic and gentle and about how the place itself isn't like any ordinary dental practice and that gave me the courage to climb the stairs. I was treated like a celebrity there, honestly! Everyone was so warm and caring, everyone showed concern for my comfort and well being and I actually enjoyed being there! The first time I've ever said that! If I'm ever passing, I will always pop in to say hello because they're like friends to me now. They pulled together and pulled my teeth out, pulling me out of a horrible situation in the process. Their fees aren't the cheapest, but you definitely get what you pay for! If you're a phobic patient, speak to Bob! He has restored my faith in dentists, with one procedure! THANK YOU Stella, Jess & Bob, for all you've done for me. I'm looking forward to us working together to make my smile something I can be proud of for once, I know we can do it! Glen. P.S. I should also note that I took a train ride to get there from my home in Milton Keynes... That alone should say how much I admire the wonderful folks at Jiva Dental!

Jiva Dental Practice is really well-organised, efficient, and committed to sensitive and thoughtful patient care. The welcome at Reception reflects how the team works: calm, respectful, professional and very competent. In addition to implants with Dr Seddon's team, my treatments included crowns, bridges, extractions and hygiene - quite a menu in one year - and all conducted with gentle and pain-free dentistry, helpful clarifications for decision-making, and responsible after-care; a practice to recommend unreservedly.

Bob, Jess and Stella, you guys have been brilliant in fixing my smile and would happily recommend you to anyone interested in using Invisalign. With regards to Invisalign I was really sceptical and unsure about the whole process prior to treatment. I was worried it would intrude to much into my life. I can honestly say with a little bit of forward thinking and common sense Invisalign really is a straight forward easy way of giving you the smile you want.

Amazing care and service from everyone at Jivadental! I'm 4 months into my Invisalign treatment and I'm really surprised how discreet they are. I can see the treatment working slowly but surely and I've come to the point where I feel weird without having them on! 6 weeks ago I had my attachments put on, initially they were tough to get used to but after a week my liners slip on and off very easily again. I highly recommend Invisalign as an orthodontic treatment especially from these guys!

I’m delighted with the results of my tooth whitening course at JivaDental. I opted for the home option with custom made trays. Just 30 minutes a day and four weeks later my smile is transformed. It was effortless, painless and economical. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you to everyone at JivaDental!!

May 2013

Changing dentists is not an east process and I delayed doing so for a fatal 12 months at least. My previous dentist had gone away suddenly and in my mind would be a hard act to follow. Every morning I awoke and knew my teeth were in need of attention, every day to put off taking the plunge. I had heard good things about Jiva and the name Jiva inspired me. (the name of a record label owned by George Harrison). So I plucked up courage in the certain knowledge that there would be work to do. Booked a free consultation and the truth was revealed. Doctor Bob has a good couch side nature, he is a good communicator. I would need a lot of work. Every filling I had was leaking and there would be crown work, root canals and extractions. I would also need to take better care of my teeth and my treatment began. That was September 2012; my first fillings were in the 50’s and 60’s! With those fillings there was an embedded fear and dread of drills and infections jangling my nerves. I don’t know how I could face it all over again however; Doctor Bob was reassuring and caring. I gained confidence right from the start: was able to relax and breathe through the work. Two root canals, 2 wisdom teeth extractions, lots of prep work and eight crowns (maybe a few surprises along the way.) The combination of Doctor Bob and Jessica created an environment of healing, the healing of my fears and traumas that had been with me since childhood. I have no hesitation in making a recommendation. Just ask Stella and she will tell you I‘ve been coming from September to May and am now complete. T Webber

Like many people I wasn’t born with perfect teeth. I only decided to do something about them when I was 18; Invisalign was perfect! No pain, no wires and it’s not visible!! I’ve always been terrified of the dentist however I have felt very welcome here at Jiva Dental. The whole process has been easy and PAINLESS! The outcome was incredible especially for just being a few months. Many thanks to Stella and Bob who have made me feel extremely welcome and been with me from start to a pearly white finish. Thanks Elly

Over the last few months I have received a carefully, considerately and well devised treatment plan from Dentist Bob Bhambra and his dental nurses Stella and Nicola. They take the time to explain exactly what they’re doing at each stage no matter how challenging the mission. The environment is tailored as best it can be to the patient’s needs and wants without compromising the treatment. The ambience is as you would like it to be. I have been treated by various dentists over the years as well as restorative ones in hospitals. No other dentist or orthodontist has met and exceeded my expectations like Bob has and no practice has been more hospitable. You won’t regret choosing Jiva Dental. I haven’t to date.

Like many people I was a bit wary of changing to a new dental practice but my experience at Jiva has been wholly positive. Everyone who works here is friendly and puts you at ease immediately. Bob is a great communicator and explains each step of the process clearly and calmly and he also has the latest equipment such as digital x-rays so that it is easy to see what is wrong and go over the treatment plan with him. The fact that Jiva is a carbon neutral business and is so beautifully designed and furnished is another positive. I’m very happy to have discovered Jiva!

I’ve always been very nervous about visiting the dentist but for every single visit I made to Jiva I’ve become more and more relaxed. The consultation was very thorough and my dental problems were identified very efficiently. The recommended treatments were always carried out with maximum efficiency. The atmosphere greatly enhances the experience with the relaxing music and best of all it’s an environmentally friendly business! Finally, everyone at the practice is very friendly and welcoming, providing detailed explanations of treatments, and I will be recommending Jiva to family and friends.

I have been going to Jiva Dental for about a year now and the treatment has always been excellent. I am always greeted with a smile and everyone is very professional. Recently I have had 4 front teeth veneers – the procedure was very smooth and the end result is perfect and very natural. Well worth it.

I've never had major issues with my teeth. Most of my family and friends were shocked when I said I was contemplating getting braces. To many people, my teeth were 'fine'; however it was the subtle imperfections which bothered me. I found myself reluctant to smile and was fixated on how my mouth looked in photographs. I also found myself comparing my teeth to those in magazines. This is when I opted to consult with Bob. Bob was very professional from the start. He was realistic about time frames, empathised with my needs and concerns as a patient and was very clear about what could be achieved. He showed me before and after photos and worked out a payment plan with me so I could afford the treatment. Throughout the process he was very understanding of my needs as a patient and never rushed the appointment. The results have been super and I am pleased that no longer do I feel the need to smile with my mouth closed or compare my mouth to others. Thanks for the added confidence.

You are so efficient and very friendly! I did have a slight phobia about dentists - hence why it's been a few years since I've seen one! My visit today was thoroughly painless and very calming. You have a very good partnership - Catherine is very lovely and also very professional. I whole heartedly support your work ethic and would rather come to Jiva Dental than any other dentists - purely because you're carbon neutral. The fact that you are both so lovely is a massive bonus and the environment is not like your usual dentist! I wish you every success - please ring if you want me to wear a t-shirt! Thank you.

Millions of thanks to Bob, Stella and Haylea. Extremely professional kind and caring. I was very nervous of dentists having had very bad dentistry over twenty odd years ago. I had lots of work done, my teeth looked awful and I was very self-conscious. I was looking for a good dentist for my daughter as I didn't want her to go through what I had. Jiva Dental welcomed us beautifully; my nervous daughter was looked at and thought they were brilliant and very thoughtful - her own words. I picked up the courage and felt confident with Bob straight away so decided to go through with some work. I wish I had met Bob twenty years ago! My teeth look natural and beautiful which I thought I would never say, I really want the rest done now. I cannot thank Bob enough. 100% and much more to you.

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial as prior to my Zoom whitening treatment I was very apprehensive as to how sensitive the procedure might be. I need not have worried; the whole procedure was totally free of any sensitivity or pain. I was kept informed throughout as to what was or might be happening, and the environment was calming with gentle music playing. I have already recommended the Zoom treatment and Jiva Dental to friends, family and colleagues.

Whilst not being a nervous patient as such, I had neglected my teeth for a long time and having not seen the dentist for many years. I decided to go for an initial consultation and was so happy when the staff were very welcoming and I immediately relaxed. 3 months on and after a lot of work I can safely say that I was delighted with the overall quality and friendliness of Bob and his colleagues. Getting to choose which music you want on whilst having a root canal really does make a wonderful difference to the whole dental experience. It’s really good that the practice is carbon neutral as well. The results I achieved were 'amazing' according to my co-workers and I'm delighted to have gone to Jiva Dental.

After an embarrassing and upsetting accident, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Jiva Dental while getting off the bus. I was a blubbering mess with a black eye and broken front tooth but Bob and Stella instantly began to make me feel better. It was a long process but I now have a beautiful brand new tooth. The procedures were painless, even the root canal! I am very impressed that the practice is the first carbon neutral one in the UK as well. I have already recommended a number of my friends and will continue to do so. I believe this is the best dentistry practice I will ever find and I wish I didn't have to return to my old one in the States! Thanks for everything and good luck.

I never thought going to the dentist could be so enjoyable. All the staff have been very friendly and approachable and it feels like I have been making new friends rather than old experiences of visits to the dentist. A very professional experience, all the work was discussed beforehand and clear pricing explained and agreed. I was happy to sign up to the Jiva Dental Care Plan and look forward to my next check-up. Highly recommended.

I was nervous about having dental implants but Dr Seddon and his team made it very positive from start to finish.

I have been impressed with the service I've received from the whole Jiva Dental team during the last 6 months. I've had significant amount of work done and found the care to be excellent. I have been put at ease since day one and have been fully consulted during the treatment plan. The care and treatment given by my dentist Bob is excellent. His support team is also second to none. Whilst the cost is not perhaps the lowest, the quality of the treatment and care means that I will continue to be a Jiva patient for as long as I can.

I'd put off going to the dentist for nearly 8 years, but realised in late 2010 that it was about time I had my aches and pains finally sorted. Heading to Google, the number one choice with a five star rating was consistently Jiva Dental (worth a look!) From the day I walked in, to some 4 months later, the service has been truly exceptional. Every concern I had was quickly laid to rest, my problems were corrected and a clear plan laid out to bring my teeth into the 21st century. I'd like to offer my dearest thanks to Bob, Stella and all the team at Jiva.

Experience of Jiva: Calm, fresh environment, a nice place to come to. Staff were friendly and professional, felt reassured from the start. Work done was pain free, results from 1st session. Advice given made sense, good to get advice with my own toothbrush! Plan was good - a previous dentist's plan included any work that needed doing once the initial fixes were done, with the exception of any lab work that needed to be done. Maybe something you could think about as an extension of your existing plan. And yes I would recommend you to friends!

Dear Bob and Team, Thank you so much for my course of treatment which has involved some very complex work over the past few months. The time and trouble you took to get my crowns fitting perfectly was exemplary. My mouth was a miss mash of NHS work and sadly we can no longer rely on the NHS for good, long lasting measures. Now, I am much happier smiling at people as my teeth are matched and a lot whiter. It’s not always pleasant going to the dentist but you also make a point of making it as enjoyable an experience as possible with the lovely music and relaxing surroundings. I’m looking forward to a long association with your dental practice. Special thank you’s are also due to your assistants Stella and Niki for their helpfulness.

The whole treatment from start to finish was first class. Beginning with the consultation, every stage was fully explained in terms I understood. Everybody is really friendly and helpful in the practice. The hours are flexible with plenty of appointments made that suited my schedule. The standard of work was excellent with the whole thing being as pain free as dentistry can reasonably be. Bob took as long as was necessary explaining the carbon neutral aspect of Jiva Dental. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Jiva Dental to anybody. Jiva Dental has a modern state of the art dental practice. Bob is a kind, considerate dentist who listens to his patients and finds the cheapest solution to their problem.

After not visiting a dentist for about two years I was passing Jiva Dental and decided to drop in. The practice is well designed, with digital photography so I could see my teeth, rather than trying to figure out an x-ray. The staff are friendly, courteous and Bob takes time to explain things and answer questions. Having a carbon neutral practice and drinks of tea or coffee are also great. Hopefully other practices will become carbon neutral. Thanks very much.

Jiva has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere while at the same time giving a feeling of professionalism and attention to detail.

Difficult to find a dentist that puts so much care and attention into their work.

The warm welcome and calming ambience that Dr Bob has created are just the start of feeling really special during all my visits. I got all the time I needed to talk through what would be done and reassured on any points that I was unsure of…in my case Zoom2 Teeth Whitening. Dr Bob and Karolina worked together as a great team and got a fantastic result of moving up 11 shades on the 16 shade chart. What a thrill when first seen! The after treatment regime was easy and consolidated the initial result. It`s a real confidence booster. The cleaning and single filling that I required in advance were performed with modern techniques and the care and attention to detail demonstrated how the practice is at the` leading edge` . Jivadental are far and away the best in comparison with the several dentists that I`ve needed to use in the past. Bob`s developed an `ethos` for the practice that we should fully support. His enthusiasm and integrity are an inspiration.

Entering Dr Bob Bhamra`s practice is like entering a dental oasis of calm. From the moment you step through the doors, leaving behind the hustle and bustle of Kingston town centre, you know immediately that Jivadental is different. I know I was in the hands of a professional, but that`s a given. What I also realised is that Dr. Bhamra really cares for your well being. He made visiting his practice a pleasure and something to look forward to (how many people can say that about their dentist?). After having zoom whitening my smile has been transformed. I feel much more confident when smiling and have noticed from recent photographs that my grins are more toothy. I would not hesitate to recommend Jivadental to anyone and everyone I know.

I was looking for a dentist in Kingston and the reviews for Jivadental were impressive enough to convince me to make an appointment. I am now posting this review as my personal confirmation of all the other reviews/recommendations on this website. Bob is a very professional and caring dentist and is quite simply kindness personified. My husband and I both required extensive dental treatment and we were both delighted with the result. Amazingly, even during my root canal treatment I was able to just totally relax and enjoy the music in the background because I trusted Bob implicitly. My experience at the practice was as close as I could get to a spa treatment at a dentist! Jivadental has a modern relaxing decor and that coupled with the wonderful kind reception we always receive from Stella on arrival makes our dentist appointments like no other we have experienced. I can only add that every medical practice should have customer/patient facing personnel like Stella. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough.

Just over a couple of years ago I’d had about 6 abscesses over a period of months which ruined 2 holidays, even though I had seen my previous dentist of 15 years, on average once a week since the first abscess appeared. This dentist who had always given me the all clear and I thought was cleaning my teeth at regular 6 monthly checkups, was reticent about sending me for a root filling to a specialist even though my GP wouldn’t give me any more antibiotics. I insisted on going, however. Meanwhile my hairdresser recommended Bob Bhamra who she met at an ecofair. The root filling, although excellent, didn’t work due to gum disease, so I asked Bob to extract the two upper teeth from that area of bone erosion as I would almost certainly would have lost them fairly soon after anyway. Bob referred me to a periodontist in Wimpole Street as I had rampant gum disease and did a major clean of scale and plaque, involving anaesthetic and needing 4 separate appointments. Bob also introduced me to Ian Seddon for bone reconstruction in the area where the two teeth had been extracted with a view to implants in their place. A bridge comprising 3 teeth held on by 3 abutments on the other upper side of my mouth, which had resulted from a road accident nearly 50 years ago also needed urgent replacement which couldn’t be undertaken until I had my 2 implants in place on the other side of mouth. Miraculously, where 3 teeth were missing the bone which had resorted after all those years seems to have grown back enough to support implants and although the abutment teeth were in an awful state of disrepair Bob has managed to save them for the time being and put on 3 crowns. Another crown which Bob had put on watch done by my previous dentist deteriorated and was replaced, and whilst all this was going on the periodontist has been trying to save my lower canine tooth which was adjacent to another pocket of bone erosion caused by gum disease, by growing some bone around it and thinning the gum, and will report on his findings in July. Although the jury is still out on most of this work (9 crowns, 5 implants and a lot of bone reconstruction in 3 different areas of my mouth) my teeth and gums feel better than they have done for almost 50 years, thanks to Bob and the staff at Jiva dental.

From my first visit Jiva Dental, I knew I was entering a different kind of dental experience. Different in the respect that you are immediately treated as an individual, and not just another patient from a long list of clients. Stella (on Reception) was so welcoming and ensured I was put at ease. The surroundings of the practice are calming, and there’s not that “dental” aroma you’re usually met with in other practices. I’d suffered – or rather put up with – slightly crooked teeth, with one front one discoloured, so knew that veneers would be my would be my chosen option. However, upon meeting Dr Bob, he spent a great deal of time in getting to know my lifestyle, and going through the various options that were open to me to achieve my desired smile. Upon reaching the decision of veneers, I was given time to “mull” over the details of treatment, and at any given time, was never pressured into making decisions. (I even received an e-mail replying to questions I had over a weekend – now that’s service)! From start to finish, every step of my treatment was explained in detail, and at each visit I felt I was the only person important to Jiva at that given time. There were no “rushed” appointments, or long waiting times, and staff were consistently welcoming. In fact, I became quite at home at Jiva, and given that I was probably one of the most nervous dental patients they’d seen for a while, that is a huge achievement for me! I am so happy with the end result, and although it sounds corny my new smile really has changed my life and now I feel more confident and am always smiling. The down side – only one, I now spend too much money on buying new lipsticks to really show off my pearlies!! I have already recommended Jiva to some friends, and I have absolutely no hesitation in spreading the word and even if you are thinking of cosmetic dentistry, go to Jiva as you will be given all options and given the best advice you can receive without any pressure. Plus, if Dr Bob and his staff can cure me from my dental-phobe, then you’re certainly in good hands! As a foot note, my 2 children now come to Jiva, and are both so comfortable with the practice (they are 3 and 7 years old). In fact the “genius” Dr Bob even helped my 7 year old stop sucking her thumb in one day!!

First of all I cannot believe I’m writing good things about a dentist. My story starts a very long time ago when I was 7 years old. I had a car accident and my brand new second teeth were so badly damaged that eventually they had to be remove and I wore badly fitting dentures from the age of 9 years old. Since then I have had many dentists, many tears and much pain physical and emotional. At social gatherings I never felt confident and would hide my mouth when I smiled or laughed. I would look in magazines and always home in on the beautiful smiles and I could have a smile to be proud of. I never believed it possible, thought I was too old and had left it too long. Then I found Jiva Dental. Not only has Jiva transformed my smile but it was all done without tears or pain and I feel fabulous. The Jiva team are friendly and professional and I actually looked forward to seeing them. At each stage of my treatment (Bob had a lot of work to do as I had stopped visiting the dentist 8 years ago through fear and disappointments) Bob would explain what he was doing, why, and what to expect at the end of it. I felt totally at ease and the results could not have made me happier. My confidence has zoomed and I cannot thank Jiva enough for all their support along the way. Bless you all and thank you Bob.
