How we feel about our smiles can change the way we act around people and otherwise live our lives. In fact, 32% of Americans are concerned about the way their teeth look, and an estimated 18% purposely hide their teeth in photographs to avoid showing a smile that they aren’t exactly proud of. In short, while confidence in your smile can leave you beaming, the lack of that same confidence can negatively impact your entire life. That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in.
Fully 25% of Americans polled say that cosmetic dentistry procedures can improve quality of life. For the 30 million Americans who are missing all of the teeth in one or both of their jaw bones and the countless others who are simply tired of looking in the mirror at stained or crooked teeth, modern cosmetic dentistry procedures, like the One Day Smile Solution, represent a chance at a life-changing smile.
How the One Day Smile Solution Works
The One Day Smile Solution gives those in dire need of some new chompers a shot at replacements with a single procedure. First, four implants are inserted into the jawbones to support a fixed prosthesis that holds between 12 and 14 replacement teeth. These four implants give the procedure its name. On the same day the implants are inserted into the jaw, the prosthesis is also installed, giving patients that brand new smile they’ve been dreaming of in one simple step, lasting only two to four hours per arch.
Costs for the procedure range from $16,000 to $25,000 per jaw, depending on bone density and other factors, making it one of the more pricey cosmetic dentistry procedures on the market; however, for the 15 million Americans who have already sought out crown and bridge replacement using this method, the convenience, lifelong durability, and renewed confidence that comes with the One Day Smile Solution is worth every penny.
