One Day Dentistry

What is it?

One Day Dentistry utilizes the latest developments in technology to give the patient fully functioning teeth within a single day.

Compared to traditional implants, which can sometimes require between three and six months, same-day dentistry offers a highly convenient method of replacing a tooth. We are now able to replace the affected tooth immediately, meaning you can walk out of the practice with a completely new smile in one day.

Our One Day Dentistry procedure can work on a singular tooth or multiple teeth.

What are the Benefits?

How Does One Day Dentistry work?

As with any dentistry, understanding the steps involved in your treatment gives the patient increased peace of mind. 


Your dentist will firstly x-ray your jaw. From this, they can produce a copy of your jaw to use as a study model. A 3d printed, and removable denture will be created and made into a template for the CT scan

Further CT scanning may be required should further accuracy on the Jaw construction be needed. Alongside this it allows the dentist to see where any nerves and sinuses may be.

Placement & Provisional Restoration:

Your jaw will be prepared for the implants whilst your provisional replacement is created. Aiming to begin this process in the morning we will carry out this procedure under intravenous sedation.

After the bespoke new replacement teeth have been created, they are fitted. Within just a few hours, after a rest period to let the new teeth settle, you will be able to go home with a brand new smile.

Permanent Restoration:

Once the patient has undergone the 3-month healing period, they will be ready for the permanent teeth to be fitted in their place.

The difference being that any fixed solution will include an implant bridge with acrylic crowns joined to the bridge framework.

Who is it for?

Smile in a Day same-day implants is suitable for most adults with loose or missing teeth, even those with severe gum disease or extreme bone loss.

That being said, here at Fairmilehead Dental Practice we will work with you to ensure that you are 100% compatible with the treatment.
