Same Day Dentures - What to Expect

Before Your Visit

Find a denture practice near you to schedule an appointment, or to get more information on their walk-in policy. Most practices schedule appointments for same-day procedures, but not all are available for walk-ins. 

If your office does offer walk-in appointments, it is advised that you show up when the practice opens and make sure to tell the receptionist that you want to take advantage of the same-day denture procedure.

When it comes to relines, extractions, or denture repairs, these procedures are often easily completed in one day and are more likely to be available for walk-in services. Please be aware that opting for our same-day services will not alter the base price of your dentures or implants. However, the overall cost may vary depending on specific needs such as extractions or adjustments, which are not directly related to the speed of service.

Our licensed dentists want to remind our patients that certain medications or pre-existing health conditions may determine if you can have an extraction in the same day. Please contact your local office to see what your best options are.

On the Day of Your Visit

You will first be asked to provide a “Patient History” form upon your arrival, that will be passed along to your dentist and dental support staff. This important health information is necessary to ensure the best treatment for you. Please expect to provide a list of prescription medications you are currently using, including any over-the-counter pain relief or antacids.

When you go back to the exam room, your specialized team of dental professionals will take impressions of your mouth so that they may be sent to the lab immediately. Our on-site laboratory will begin fabricating your denture device, including the option for 3-D printed dentures, to have it ready to pick up in the afternoon. It is because of this lab that we are able to happily pass on thousands of dollars of savings to our patients while providing high quality dentures in a day.

Tooth Extractions & Relines

If you need extractions or relines, these procedures will be performed in the later morning hours or in the early afternoon. Adjustments are also usually scheduled in the late morning, but you will need to consult with your individual practice for confirmation on when you may have these procedures taken care of.

Please keep in mind that if you will need extractions, you may need to come back at a later date for a permanent set of dentures, to allow your gums to heal. You will be sent home with custom, temporary dentures until your mouth is ready for your final set.

Receiving Your Same-Day Dentures

Your custom dentures will be delivered to you in the afternoon of the same-day of your appointment. If you have time between your scheduled morning appointment and the delivery of your dentures, feel free to leave the practice and come back later. Our staff will be more than happy to text or call you when your new teeth are ready to pick up!

Same-Day Dentures FAQ

How long does it take to get same-day dentures?

Your initial appointment will be in the morning, and you can expect to have your new dentures in the afternoon of the same day.

Do same-day dentures look natural?

Yes. Your dentist will help you choose what type of denture is going to be best for you. Our patients can choose the material that their dentures are made of, including the color of the teeth to make sure they look as natural as possible.

How much do same day dentures cost?

The cost of same-day dentures depends on the type of denture you are receiving and how many teeth you will be replacing. You may need to factor in costs for necessary extractions before the procedure or for relines and adjustments as your mouth changes over time.

Are same day dentures permanent?

It will depend on what type of denture and dental procedures you receive. For example, if you get extractions, you will be given temporary dentures on the day of your appointment, and you will need to come back at a later date for your permanent dentures. Most same-day denture procedures are not for permanent denture devices, as permanent dentures require surgically placed dental implants.
