Is there anything better than a big, genuine smile? It’s the kind of smile you can’t contain. Those kinds of smiles are more likely when you like how your smile looks. We often see those smiles after our Same-Day Smile procedure.
What is Same-Day Smile? Put simply, it’s a treatment to take give you teeth replacements that restore the appearance of a full set of teeth in a single visit to our dentist office in Woodbury, MN.
If you or someone you know could benefit from this procedure, make an appointment with our dentist, Mark W. Wilhelm DMD, MSD.

Where You Go For Teeth Replacements Does Matter
Many dentists do some form of restorative dentistry, but not all dentists are prosthodontists. Dr. Wilhelm is.
We are going to go out on a limb and guess that you probably don’t use the word “prosthodontist” in your normal everyday conversation. That’s OK. We know it’s not a common term.
But it is one that we think you should understand, especially if you are considering replacement teeth.
Prosthodontists, like Dr. Wilhelm, are dental specialists who focus on creating lifelike restorations for our patients. The extra training involved in this specialty includes a focus on dental implant placement. The purpose is to give our patients natural-looking smile and fully functional replacement teeth.
Dr. Wilhelm graduated from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine, then completed Master of Science in Dentistry and specialty certificates in prosthodontics and maxillofacial prosthetics at Indiana University. Today, he is a Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and an active member of the American College of Prosthodontists, among other dental organizations.
You can feel confident that you are in the hands of an expert you decide to receive our Same-Day Smile or any other restorative procedure at our dentist office in Woodbury, MN.
How A Same-Day Smile Is Possible
Many times, getting dental implant-supported teeth replacements can be a drawn out process.
First, you have your dental implants placed in your jaw. Then, you wait for your mouth to heal from this procedure. In the meantime, you continue to live without teeth.
It may take months before your mouth is fully healed from your dental implant placement. Eventually, you will have your dentures attached to your implants so you can enjoy the full benefits of your replacement teeth.
Dr. Wilhelm knows that some people don’t want to walk around for another day with empty smiles.
The first step in the process is evaluating your jaw. During your initial consultation, we may X-rays and make a visual examination of your mouth. It’s important to know that your jaw can support dental implants before we proceed.
(We have ways of building up your jaw to receive implants, but be aware that this will add to the time needed to complete your treatment.)
If you are a good candidate for dental implants, then we can schedule another appointment for the Same-Day Smile procedure.
Dr. Wilhelm can provide dental sedation to ensure that you don’t feel anything during the implant placement. After the implants are in position, he will be able to attach your replacement teeth that same day.
You will leave with a smile that looks whole and natural.
To learn more, schedule your consultation as soon as you are able.
The Benefits Of Same-Day Teeth Replacements
The obvious benefit is that you don’t have to walk around without teeth any longer.
With Same-Day Smile, you will feel more comfortable talking to family, friends, co-workers, and clients and even posing for pictures.
You will still need time to heal before you are back to full strength, but you will be able to eat more of the foods that you like after your Same-Day Smile procedure as well. That’s hard to do if nothing is attached to the abutment ends of your dental implants.
From our experience, our Same-Day Smile treatment has the added benefit of giving our patients a renewed sense of confidence. It’s hard to describe how losing your teeth affects your self-esteem or how replacing those teeth gives you self-esteem a boost.
Get Your Teeth Replacements Sooner
Dr. Wilhelm and the rest of our staff want nothing more than to help our patients. We want you to feel good about your smile and to feel confident that you can eat the foods that you want to eat.
Same-Day Smile can get you to that place in less time than other dental implant placement procedures.
