LVI-Trained Dentist Serving Oakton, Vienna, McLean and Nearby Northern Virginia
If you are tired of wearing dentures or suffering with teeth so broken down that you have difficulty chewing, Dr. Chung may be able to give you new, stable teeth in one day using Teeth in One Day, a comfortable and minimally invasive procedure. It’s the modern alternative to dentures.
What is Teeth in One Day?
It’s a revolutionary dental implant technique that uses advanced mechanics to stably support a full mouth of teeth with just four implants. This advanced technique allows many of our patients to say goodbye to dentures for good.
How does Teeth in One Day Work?
The first step in the procedure is a 3D dental CT scan. With this scan, Dr. Chung can find the densest areas of bone in the jaw and plan the implant placement. Most patients don’t need any bone grafting, which traditional dental implants require.
Using the CT scan, Dr. Chung meticulously plans the treatment ahead of time and creates a surgical guide, so that on the day of surgery, the implants are inserted without any cutting or suturing needed, making the treatment minimally invasive. Any tooth extractions that are needed are done at the same time as the implant insertion. Post-surgery discomfort is minimal.
Dr. Chung fits patients with high-grade, fully functioning teeth while the final teeth are fabricated. The teeth are made out of a very life-like acrylic, or a combination of aesthetic porcelain for the top arch and acrylic for the hard-biting lower arch.

Who is an ideal candidate for the Teeth in One Day Process?
Some candidates for Teeth in One Day are struggling with tooth loss or severely damaged teeth. Others are tired of dealing with the hassles and worries that often come with wearing conventional dentures.
Teeth in One Day provides stable, reliable replacement teeth that look incredibly natural. It is a quicker procedure than traditional dental implants. It can also work even if you have bone loss.
Smokers are not ideal candidates for Teeth in One Day and will need to quit to promote healing. Meanwhile, individuals with gum disease or poor oral health must have these issues corrected ahead of time.
A consultation is the best way to learn if Teeth in One Day is the right choice for your smile. Dr. Chung will evaluate your oral condition in our welcoming dental office full of unique amenities.
What recovery and aftercare do Teeth in One Day Require?
Teeth in One Day is a minimally invasive procedure that comes with a relatively short and manageable recovery. In most cases, patients do not experience much discomfort after surgery.
You will leave our office with high-quality temporary teeth that immediately restore dental function. However, it is important to take a few precautions in order to support your recovery. Those precautions may include things such as eating soft foods for a few days. Our dentist will provide you with complete aftercare directions following your Teeth in One Day procedure.
How long will the results of my Teeth in One Day Last?
Teeth in One Day is a dental implant procedure. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. They are made of a durable titanium material that naturally forms a bond with your jawbone. Meanwhile, the dentures that these implants support can last for many years.
There are a few things you can do to extend the life of your new smile. Make sure to brush your implant-supported dentures twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Also, schedule regular dental appointments to clean and monitor your restorations.
How long does the Teeth in One Day Process Take?
The Teeth in One Day process takes far less time than traditional dental implants. This benefit is one of the many reasons why patients choose to restore their oral function with this procedure.
The first step is to schedule a consultation. You will also need a treatment planning appointment. Our dentist will take a 3D dental CT scan and use it to create a surgical guide.
On the day of your procedure, your implants will be placed using minimally invasive techniques. Any necessary tooth extractions will also be performed at this time. You will leave our Oakton dental office with high-quality temporary restorations while your final teeth are fabricated.
Keep in mind that a small number of patients may require additional steps such as bone grafting. Dr. Chung will be able to provide you with a more personalized treatment timeline.
Are there any risks associated with the Teeth in One Day Process?
The risks associated with the Teeth in One Day process are minimal. Same-day dental implants have a high success rate. Visiting an experienced dentist will also help everything go smoothly.
Of course, no procedure is risk-free. Dr. Chung will gladly discuss the considerations associated with Teeth in One Day so that you can make an informed decision about your dental care.
