Same Day Smiles® treatment can help patients with missing, damaged or broken teeth. Here are some of the options we offer:
Dental implants are small titanium screws placed directly in the jawbone, where they act as replacement tooth roots. There they integrate with the bone and support false teeth in the form of crowns, bridges or secured dentures, depending on your individual needs.
In some cases it is possible to fit implants and restorations in one day – sometimes even at the same time as you have decayed teeth removed. This is not suitable in every case, so please discuss it with your dentist first. However, if you are suitable for this treatment, the implants will be placed in your jaw with a minor surgical procedure and the restorations will be created with our CEREC machine while you wait and then attached to the implants, meaning you walk out of the practice with a brand new smile.
Using our CEREC 3D machine, it is possible to create crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays and other restorations while you wait. The machine uses advanced scanning technology that does away with the need to take impressions of your teeth. The restorations are then designed on the computer and milled from a block of tooth-coloured ceramic, before being fixed to your tooth with a strong dental adhesive. On average, this takes just 1.5 hours, depending on the procedure you are having.
Composite bonding, using the same material that is used to create white fillings, is a fast way to restore chipped, broken or worn teeth. The dentist will carefully match the colour of the composite material to the natural colour of your teeth, then will place it and shape it before using a UV light to harden the material, creating entirely natural-looking restorations.
