Teeth in a Day
How It Works
Weld One (Teeth in a Day)
Weld One™ is a revolutionary and highly advanced new method that allows a full mouth of new teeth to rest with complete, proven stability on only four to six implants per jaw. A state-of-the-art CT scanner is used to plot the location of the implants in the jaws, these implants form a sturdy base for titanium framework and a temporary bridge to be secured on top of it. You walk out the same day with a beautiful, natural, functional smile. The more durable Weld One™ temporary restoration can last up to a year before being switched to a final bridge.
People can lose teeth for many different reasons, whether after an accident, through decay, or simply age, but the impact on their life can be traumatic. Previously, a bridge or a denture were the most popular ways to replace missing teeth, however, they are not always an ideal solution and can make eating uncomfortable or people self-conscious of their smile. Nowadays, dental implants have become a much more favoured option because this advanced treatment effectively replaces the root of a tooth, giving a more natural outcome in terms of functionality and aesthetics. Dental implants have been used for over 30 years to replace missing teeth, offering a long-term solution and a host of benefits to patients. Implant treatment can slow down bone loss, preserve healthy tissue and help maintain jaw shape. Bone loss is a problem for people who have dentures as the shape of the jaw slowly changes and the dentures need to be adjusted or re-made to fit the new shape of the jaw. Bone loss can also make a person look older since the area around the mouth can sag.
Implants are made from titanium, a material that is bio-compatible with your body and easily integrates with your bone tissue. After the implants have been placed, there is a healing period of three to six months while the implants integrate with your body tissues, then you return to the practice for the restoration to be completed. At The Staines Centre of Dental Excellence, we understand the impact that a smile can have. We would never send you out without a complete smile. Once dental implants are fully integrated into your jaw they function just as well as your own natural teeth. This means you can eat the foods you enjoy, speak and smile with confidence.

The bone tissue surrounding the root of your tooth is maintained by your body’s natural renewal process. However, if you loose a tooth, you will be left with a hole where your tooth root used to be and the bone around this area will slowly begin to disappear (atrophy) and may change the shape of your jaw. A dental implant placed in that area can actually stimulate bone growth and production, preventing loss of valuable bone structure. In some patients where bone loss is substantial a bone graft may be required before placing a dental implant. Bone loss is a problem for people who have dentures and as the shape of the jaw slowly changes the dentures need to be adjusted or re-made to fit the new shape of the jaw. Bone loss can also make a person look older since the area around the mouth can sag, as bone is lost.
Once dental implants are fully integrated into your jaw they function just as well as your own natural teeth and you can eat the foods you want and speak with complete confidence. With dentures, eating hard foods such as an apple can be a problem, either the dentures come loose or patients cannot withstand the hard biting forces as they cause pain in the gums. Irritation or inflammation of the gums is a common problem amongst denture patients. Dentures HGH can be supported by implants or mini-implants which will improve function greatly enabling patients to eat the foods they want with complete confidence and not having to worry about bone loss and loose dentures falling out.
Improved dental hygiene
Unlike bridges and dentures, which require special cleaning instructions and extra attention, dental implants just need regular brushing, flossing and hygiene appointments just like your natural teeth.
No need to drill or remove any healthy tooth structure
When replacing missing teeth with dental bridges, the teeth adjacent to the gap need to be prepared and healthy tooth structure is removed to accommodate a crown or bridge abutment to fit over the top of the tooth. In the future if one of the supporting teeth is damaged the entire bridge restoration will also be compromised whereas with an implant the restoration is independent of any of your other teeth. By replacing lost teeth with an implant, no support is required of the adjacent teeth, and hence your natural teeth do not need to be prepared or altered in any way
Your smile looks great!
If done correctly a dental implant should be indistinguishable from your surrounding natural teeth. Dentures can come loose and look un-natural if they do not blend with your gums and some bridges and dentures have unsightly metal clasps to hold them in place. Dental implants provide a much better cosmetic and functional end result.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”How many teeth can a dental implant support?” open=”no”]Traditionally an implant placed into your bone supports a single crown and this is know as a single tooth implant. However if you have several missing teeth you do not necessarily need an implant for every missing tooth, one implant can support several teeth via a bridge or a denture. The number of implants required depends on the volume and density of bone tissue available at each implant site. Often smaller sized âmini implantsâ are used to secure dentures in place.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?” open=”no”]Dental Implants can be placed in patients of any age provided that they have sufficient quality and quality of bone tissue available. Most healthy individuals that maintain a good oral hygiene program are suitable candidates for dental implants.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”How long do dental implants last?” open=”no”]Dental implants have been used for over 30 years to replace missing teeth and they can last a lifetime depending upon how you look after them. Like any other restoration your implant-supported teeth can still be damaged by trauma and affected by gum disease and poor oral hygiene.[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Why should I choose STCODE for my implant treatment?” open=”no”]Unfortunately, the standard of Implant treatment provided in the UK can vary substantially due to variation in standards between dental practices and their clinicians. Implant Dentistry is an extremely predictable and safe treatment for patients providing the operating clinician works to set protocols biased on evidence provided through research. It is extremely important an Implantologist has trainingdeemed appropriate by the General Dental Council and suitable experience within the field.[/fusion_toggle][/fusion_accordion]
