(Estimated reading time: 60 Seconds and well worth the time)
If you had a sneaking suspicion that the conventional teeth in day process seemed too good to be true, you have to read all the way to the end.
While the term “teeth in a day” sounds great, for many patients the experience is VERY DIFFERENT from what they were expecting.
Did you know that the teeth provided using the old "teeth in a day" method are actually a cheap set of dentures called "TEMPS" (short for temporary teeth)? You typically stay in those oversized, easily breakable temporary teeth for up to 6 to even 10 months or longer.
Unfortunately, that may not even be the worst part about the process...
The dentist giving you the “teeth in a day” orders a basic acrylic denture (the Temps).
Then, on the day of surgery after you’ve been sedated for up to 4 or 5 hours the dreaded “denture conversion” begins.
Below is a set of dentures that, using the old process, would become your "temporary" set of teeth.
Notice how big and bulky they are.
That is why folks who get these temporary set of teeth may experience difficulty speaking normally.
Next, someone at the clinic puts some goo inside the denture and places it over your implants to get an estimated location of where to place holes and connect the posts.
Then the drilling begins...
Because of the manual nature of this process, it's difficult to get the dentures to fit precisely.
Take a look at this temporary denture converted to "teeth in a day".
Can you see the large dark circles there?
That's where they drilled holes to try to fit the metal cylinders to the implants...
And as you can see... they have to give their best guess where to place the cylinders and fill the rest of the holes in with liquid plastic.
Can you imagine how weak this denture is after shaving it down, drilling large holes and filling them with liquid plastic?
That's why these temporaries break more often than permanent teeth.
Imagine having to come back into the clinic several times because your "temps" broke again.
That's why "teeth in a day" typically requires a liquid only diet for up to 4 weeks or more... Because chewing anything has the possibility to cause movement and can compromise the implants.
NUVIA's 24 hr permanent teeth are built different to help eliminate micro movements and allow you to eat soft foods immediately.
Sadly, even after up to 6+ months of wearing your “teeth in a day” temps (and hoping the denture doesn’t break) you finally start the process of getting your permanent set...
...and what a process it is.
The staff typically places what is called a “wax rim” into your mouth and adds “chiclet” style teeth to it.
Then they have to manually heat up the wax and move the teeth around trying to match them up to the right spots.
Once they feel it is as good as they can get it, the wax try-in set is sent to the lab.
It can take the lab a week or two, sometimes longer, to create a replica to send back to the clinic. Then you’ll need to come back in for another appointment to try it on to see how it fits.
If it needs adjustment, the staff has to go through the same process again...
Sending it back to the lab...
Then back again to test…
Over and over until they get it just right.
This process can take up to an additional 5 to 10 appointments and additional 2-4 months or more depending on the speed of the lab.
That’s a total of up to 10 months or more to get the permanent set that you thought you were getting in one day!
...It’s like waiting for Amazon 2 day shipping that doesn’t arrive for months.
So What Is The Solution?
We don’t believe in "temps".
Take a look at the picture below.
Our lab director snapped a quick picture of our beautiful 24-hour permanent teeth right after it was finished.
Now that's something you can get excited about right?
As you’ve learned in the outline above, the entire temporary “teeth in a day” process can be a long frustrating patient experience.
We know it firsthand because that’s actually the way we USED to do it too.

Benefit #1 - From up to 10 Months To 24 Hours
The obvious first benefit is taking an up to 10+ month process and condensing it down to 24 hrs.
This is such a game-changer it feels like when Amazon came out with FREE 2-day shipping but BETTER.
At Nuvia you're not placed in an acrylic (plastic) denture (called a temp) for up to 10+ months.With the other "temp" method you may find yourself going back over and over again to get it adjusted or to fix a break.
Benefit #2 - *Immediately Start Eating Soft Foods
With the old way (temporaries) did you know many patients are placed on a liquid-only diet for up to 4-6 weeks? With our permanent set in 24 hours, you can start eating soft foods right away. Oatmeal, mashed potatoes, salmon, pasta, etc.
Benefit #3 - Custom Precise Fit
Because of our technology, we are able to digitally plan the procedure in advance. So our permanent set of teeth, delivered the next day, can slide right in with pinpoint accuracy.
Benefit #4 - Can Eliminate Up To 5-10 Appointments
After the implant surgery, we deliver your permanent teeth in just ONE additional appointment. The traditional "Teeth-in-a-day" method can require up to 5-10 additional appointments due to the wax try-in phase. To learn more about wax try-ins, click here.
Benefit #5 - *Speak Naturally
Generally, acrylic based temporaries require more material bulk for strength reasons. Sometimes that extra bulk can be extra burdensome. This is why the custom and precise fit of our permanent set in 24hrs is so good for our patients. The big and clunky temporary doesn’t exist with us.Are You Eligible For Teeth in 24hrs?
