A new, beautiful smile in just one day!
Imagine coming to the dentist in the morning and leaving before lunch with your new, beautiful smile! Fetner & Hartigan has been offering this service for many years to the delight of these patients. “Teeth Before Lunch” is a procedure where the patient receives a full arch dental restoration that is secured by implants in just a few hours. It looks good, feels good, and restores your confidence in eating, talking, and smiling. No more denture adhesive!
Although the restoration and the implants are done the same day, behind the scenes we are working with your dentist and with amazing technology to plan your perfect restoration. A CT “cat” scan is the first step. Then, a digital scan is often made of your mouth. These images can be “merged” to create a surgical guide, if needed, for precise placement of your implants. Sometimes, the surgical guide is actually printed on a 3D printer. Pretty high tech stuff! This is how Bones would have made Captain Kirk’s new teeth!
After three months of allowing the implants to anchor in your bone, your general dentist will make your permanent restoration. That way you can have time to get used to it and your dentist can refine your bite and you have time to decide on the details of your new smile!
As with all of our services, no referral is needed. We would love for you to make an appointment for a consultation! 904-296-8343.
