Common Questions About Teeth In A Day

Teeth In A DayA lot of people have heard about teeth in a day – a set of implant-supported overdentures that can be installed in a single procedure. However, there are still many aspects of the process that may remain a mystery to those not familiar with it. Here are a few answers to the most common teeth in a day questions.

Teeth In A Day – Your Questions Answered

Question #1: Can I really get my teeth replaced in just one day?

Answer: Not exactly. The procedure to deliver the supporting implants can take place in a single day, but that day is preceded by at least one and possible more office visits to ensure proper diagnosis, planning and treatment coordination have taken place.

Question #2: Can I design my teeth in a day to look better than my natural teeth?

Answer: Yes, it’s possible to work with your cosmetic dentist and your restorative dental team to design the smile that you want. However, most people choose to replace their natural teeth with a set of overdentures that looks attractive and natural but not “perfect.”

Question #3: Will the shade of my teeth in a day overdentures be brighter than any natural teeth remaining in my mouth?

Answer: You can designate the shade you’d like your new implant-supported teeth to be, so you can have them match your natural teeth shade. One word of caution – teeth in a day cannot be whitened after they’re placed in the mouth, so you will want to whiten your natural teeth before the procedure and match the teeth in a day overdentures to the new shade of your remaining teeth.

Question #4: Can I eat normally after I receive my teeth in a day?

Answer: Yes! This is one of the best parts of receiving your new teeth. After a brief healing period immediately following the procedure, you may eat anything you like.

“As our patients learn more about teeth in a day, many of them realize what a great choice it can be for permanent teeth replacement,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist practicing in central Phoenix.
