Smile In A Day

Smile in a day (sometimes referred to as Teeth in a day) replaces your teeth (or dentures) with a fully fixed in bridge secured by a minimum of four dental implants.

It is the closest you can get to a full set of natural teeth and has a wide range of benefits (found lower down the page).

The Problem With Wearing Dentures

If you have dentures, you will be aware that they move around as you eat and speak. This tends to get worse over time because the jaws gradually shrink when there are no teeth present.

Eventually there may be little bone for the dentures to rest on causing dentures to slip and slide, fall when speaking, or make chewing some foods impossible.

Avoid Embarrassment in Social Situations

Many of our patients have reported embarrassment in social situations, being afraid to go out for a meal with their husband or wife, covering their mouth when laughing, and avoiding photographs at weddings and other happy family occasions.

In addition, when you are missing teeth, it leads to shrinking of the jaw bone and subsequent changes to the facial features such as wrinkles around the mouth, sunken cheeks and a prominent chin.

Your Initial Consultation

A full examination of the mouth will be carried out at your first appointment. We will also take a three dimensional image of your mouth using our high tech cone beam CT imaging system. We will discuss the problems you are having and will address those issues when planning our final result.

We then plan your treatment and take moulds and records of your mouth to select the appropriate shape and position of your new teeth, and decide where the implants should be positioned.

You are free to choose the shade of the teeth and we will help you with that, or we can even choose an appropriate shade for you if you would prefer.

The Day Of Your Procedure

On the day of the procedure we start at 8am. You will be given some sedation beforehad to help you relax and take away any anxiety.

The gums will be gently numbed, and any remaining bad teeth are removed. The implants are then placed and moulds of the mouth taken. The procedure is generally finished between 10 and 10.30am.

You will then be brought to our relaxation room where you can get comfy on a soft recliner and watch TV, read a book, or take a nap while our dental technicians create your teeth in our onsite dental laboratory.

What Our Patients Say

When I speak, I (now) show my teeth, and when I laugh, I laugh with my mouth open - and then same when I smile.

I came back the same evening I had the 12 teeth removed and I had a mockup of my new teeth. Fully screwed in. I felt no pain. All in the same day! That to me, was the biggest thing of all!

Commonly Asked Questions

What is teeth in a day?

If you are missing all of the teeth in one or both jaws, or are about to lose them, you can have them replaced with fully fixed in teeth on dental implants - all in one day.

Who would need this?

Teeth in a day is suitable for people who are missing teeth, people wearing dentures, or people who are about to lose their teeth and don't want to face a life with dentures.

How does it work?

All in one day, your mouth is numbed and any bad teeth are removed.

A minimum of four dental implants are placed and then a mould taken of your mouth.

Our dental technicians then use this to create a custom made set of new teeth which will be fixed onto the dental implants.

You will then be able to leave the clinic that same evening to go home and enjoy eating in comfort again.

How long does it take?

There is some preparatory work to select the correct shade and shape of teeth and to plan where the implants will be placed.

The procedure itself is carried out in just one day. On that day you will receive a provisional set of teeth which look and function like real teeth.

These are replaced after 3-6 months with a final set of teeth which are more robust.

Are there any age limits?

There is no upper age limit.

People who need this type of procedure are generally older people, and currently the oldest patient to have this treatment carried out at 3Dental was 82 years old at the time of her procedure.

What are the main benefits?

The procedure provides a fast and cost effective solution to people who require all of their teeth replaced in one of both jaws.

There is minimal disruption to your life, and the results from having new fixed in teeth are life changing.

Why would I choose 3Dental for this?

The clinicians at 3Dental perform more of the teeth in a day treatment than any other clinic in the country. We are highly experienced and have completed hundreds of successful cases.

We are committed to providing the very highest standards and encourage you to look at the quality of our results for yourself in our smile gallery.

How much does it cost?

The average cost at 3Dental is €10,000
